Please take a FreeVue PreVue of what EconoVue™ has to offer, including:
Employment data provides only part of the picture. Today’s most successful workforce development agencies have evolved beyond traditional practices and strategies. Independently, and in sync with the goals of WIOA, workforce boards need more: more data, more information and more insight, especially about employers, industry health and trends, and an ability to predict the ebbs and flows of employer expansion and contraction before it occurs. EconoVue™ lets workforce boards see the economic and industry trends in their regions – and take an up-close look at employment, salaries and Employer Failure Risk scores over time. Customizable search and filter abilities refine data results in real time and quickly pinpoint companies for strategic workforce engagement for programs such as Rapid Response, Layoff Aversion, Targeted Outreach and Strategic Planning.
Find, target and connect with businesses of every size, including the backbone of America: those small companies that may benefit from economic programs the most, and who make up more than 90% of the businesses in the country. The comprehensive business data platform built into EconoVue™ gives you access to business details about all businesses, including the hard-to-find information on the 1-10 employee companies. EconoVue™ enables outreach and engagement efforts aimed at key economic sectors with a nuanced NAICS cluster search, combined with business health, trend and forward-looking predictive indicators, and executive contact details on over 17 million U.S. business locations.
Industries are transforming, physical workplaces are shrinking, remote work has emerged as a new normal, and commuter work patterns are less predictable. New events such as: COVID, natural disasters and ecological factors like climate change emphasize the need for current and dynamic geo-based information on businesses, employment, industries and locations by transportation planners trying to predict and prepare for “the next normal”. EconoVue™ for Transportation provides quarterly updates of map-based, location-specific business information, enabling transportation planners to query, interrogate, view and compare transportation-affecting geocoded data points from a business and employment perspective.
The unique power of EconoVue™ is our ability to create, view, analyze and present sector and labor market data and trends driven by “raw” business and employer information at the site level. For our business data EconoVue™ partners with Dun & Bradstreet®, the established leader in business decisioning data and analytical insights.
EconoVue’s business data are supplemented by labor market resources, including:

“Business Engagement is a vital workforce lifeline to employers and employees who depend on each other for success. Improving the economic position of businesses – locally and regionally – is a role that sits on the shoulders of Business Engagement teams at all levels and responsibilities. Business Engagement is not a guessing game, it is the art and science of knowing when and how to position yourself and your organization in the center of the employer’s decision-making process.”

“I field requests from our Economic Development Councils to track changes in business conditions and get an overview of any dramatic changes that stand out in our region, particularly for financial stability of our business community.”
