Great question, and we like how you’re thinking! EconoVue™ costs more than a loaf of bread but less than an airplane.

What makes EconoVue™ unique?

EconoVue™’s uniqueness lies in three interconnected factors: 1. EconoVue™ provides access to a comprehensive multi-source business database available nowhere else. 2. The EconoVue™ platform is “designed with intent”: built for specific users’ specific needs with specific public-sector agency responsibilities. 3. EconoVue™ is agile. Data without utility is just a massive spreadsheet. EconoVue™ brings data utility to users’ fingers instantly, intuitively guiding users’ questions and delivering answers.

What are some key features of EconoVue™?

EconoVue™ is modular yet complete: Purposefully designed with multiple focused apps to allow diverse research with variable granularity, EconoVue™ delivers complete access to all apps with each subscription. There are no “add-on” components with “add-on” costs. When you’re in EconoVue™, you’re all in.

OverVue™ provides a comprehensive lens: This interactive dashboard enables quick and agile manipulation of significant data points (geo, industry, key sectors, and business health) to display snapshot analyses based on user criteria and then manipulate those variables to track changes over time and make data-driven projections. Dynamic, interconnected, interactive graphs show how local counties or workforce areas connect to the bigger picture within your state.

RegionVue™ ties occupation and jobs data to time-series D&B employer data aggregated by industry sector and geography: Animated bubble charts and graphs let users quickly assess key occupations in emerging sectors, track sector-wide hiring trends and training needs, and evaluate salary and education zone data. Identifying occupations with higher salaries and lower barriers to entry reveals factors that may affect hiring, workforce location, economic development opportunities, and commuter traffic demands.

ProspectVue™ is integrated with both OverVue™ and RegionVue™, allowing users to go deep and specific into their targeted research. ProspectVue™ allows users to dynamically adjust their research criteria using all of EconoVue™’s data variables of core and specialty data to generate very precisely focused outputs, including predictive indicators of future risk, stability, growth, or contraction. Map-based, ProspectVue™ graphically displays the location and concentration of businesses and employment based on users’ live queries. When your use case and data needs to demand a specific targeted business or type, ProspectVue™ can drive down to a single business and provide live access to expanded research reports from EconoVue™ and Dun & Bradstreet.

LocalVue™ is a visual business mapping analytics tool that spatially displays employer and employment industry trends by multiple geographic boundaries). It dynamically generates current and time-series sector trend reports for any selected region. Data are portrayed in an interactive thematic mapping GUI to visually compare business and employment data among regions.

Does EconoVue™ have jobs data?

Yes! EconoVue™’s business data are supplemented by labor market resources, including the BLS Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, providing a time series of salary information tied to NAICS, geography, and D&B aggregated employment information. CareerOneStop.org provides dynamic information about Training Providers in any location, and Indeed.com provides up-to-date job listings for any selected business, occupation, and region.

How accurate is EconoVue's data?

At EconoVue™, data drives our own decisions as well. We conduct regular data quality checks, external research and comparative analyses to ensure we are providing the most complete and accurate data we can. We chose Dun & Bradstreet as our business data partner because of their own high standards of data accuracy, completeness and maintenance. We’re equally selective in our other data sources and feeds, public or private. For a more detailed discussion on data quality, please contact us directly.

How does a subscription work?

EconoVue™ access is provided on annual or multi-year platform and data use subscriptions. Individual user access is browser-based via ID and password.

How current is EconoVue’s data?

EconoVue™ collects and provides data from multiple sources. Our core comprehensive and detailed business site data database is refreshed each quarter with an updated feed from Dun & Bradstreet. Additional data components are updated on varying schedules, including weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly, to provide a dynamic and current intelligence resource, allowing our users to see their economic and business communities as they change.

What training and support do users get?

Right behind the EconoVue™ platform, our Customer Education Team delivers outstanding service to users. New Customers receive dedicated onboarding training sessions just for their users, and additional follow-up groups or 1:1 training are available for new users (or users wanting a refresher). We deliver an ongoing curriculum of regularly scheduled live training and knowledge sessions for users several times each month, augmented with specialized sessions around new product enhancements, new data additions, and user-driven best practice and use-case sharing sessions facilitated by our Customer Education Team.

Can I export data from EconoVue™?

Definitely! EconoVue™ is designed to help users “thin the haystack” by using our vast array of data options, selectors, and filters to query and refine their search efforts to identify a precisely targeted set of businesses. Each of the apps in EconoVue™ lets users export those outputs into Excel files for further use, analysis, or integration with users’ internal datasets.

Does EconoVue™ integrate with other platforms?

EconoVue™ does not have any integrated “connectors” to other platforms. However, EconoVue™’s data export feature allows users to extract their refined lists of businesses, and that data can then be imported into other applications such as specialized mapping platforms, modeling applications, or CRM systems.

Which EconoVue™ app is best for my project?

EconoVue™ is a comprehensive platform, with all apps (interactive analysis dashboards, business and industry research apps, and jobs & employment data) provided to all users. “Which app” depends on your particular project and data needs of the day. Like changing lenses on a microscope, EconoVue™ users move fluidly across apps based on the breadth or precision of insight needed.

What are the data sources for EconoVue™?

The foundational core of EconoVue™’s business and employment data is the Dun & Bradstreet business database. We augment that business data with labor market resources and specialty data from State & Federal sources such as DOL, ETA, FEMA, SBA, and state workforce agencies, as well as jobs data from CareerOneStop.org and Indeed.com. For a more detailed discussion of the data behind EconoVue™, please contact us directly.

How detailed is the information on each business?

Because of the size and volume of data sources synthesized in EconoVue™, the standard level of business information is robust, including data on demographics, employment and industry, business health or risk indicators, corporate family data, diversity and geo-location info, and more. EconoVue™ also produces several standard reports for more detailed and content-specific views on individual businesses, such as our Business Disruption Report, Corporate Linkage Map, and Financial History Graph. EconoVue™ also directly connects to Dun & Bradstreet so that users can extract a live D&B Comprehensive Report on businesses.
