TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—The Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) is launching SizeUpOEV on the OEV website today. SizeUpOEV uses big data, cloud computing, and computer algorithms to deliver custom analyses for local businesses. This powerful market research and business intelligence data is industry-specific and hyperlocal. By using the application, local firms can discover potential customers and suppliers, optimize marketing to ideal customers, analyze the characteristics and spending of the consumers in Tallahassee-Leon County, and rank industry performance across multiple metrics. The information can be exported to PDF or copied to a spreadsheet for use in a business plan, loan application, performance analysis, marketing campaign, and more!
SizeUpOEV levels the competitive field by providing small businesses with similar market research that generally only large corporations can afford.
