Why did you develop BusinessDecision?
Small and mid-sized businesses are very important to the economic vitality and sustainability of our local communities. But public libraries have limited databases services to offer them. BusinessDecision provides geographically customizable consumer household, market segmentation, and demographic population estimates and forecasts, among other data features, to help small businesses add more customers, find the right site, and target media and marketing campaigns, among others. To deliver BusinessDecision we work with nationally recognized experts to provide the very best demographic and geographic data. For the past 30 years our experts have created and distributed national data that are statistically correlated with social behavior and consumer buying patterns.
