Do you have

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we hear from our appreciated customers.

At the heart of every good business decision lies knowledge. Whether it’s starting a business, expanding a franchise or selecting a manufacturing site, having access to reliable data is crucial to making the right choices. Having step by step guides for common business processes also helps folks who are not experts at using data – after all, data is only useful if you know what to do with it.

Localintel’s Business & Investment Assistant offers an easier way for communities to provide this knowledge. Business can access the INDICATORS section of to get a community profile and then drill into the data by using the MAPS. Non-experts can also get the guidance they need across 8 topics in the HOW TO section. Finally, businesses can find the right people to talk to via the CONNECT section.

The only inputs we need from our clients to set the Assistant up is the contact details of the people or organizations you wish to include in the CONNECT section. This is done by filling out a simple form and typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.
The process for setting up the Assistant is fast and efficient. Once the standard agreement is signed, we have a brief onboarding call to explain who needs to do what (30 minutes). The client then fills out a form identifying the people or organizations to include in the CONNECT section (60 minutes). We then set up your Assistant and send it to you for review and integration into your website (7 days).
Localintel sources and automatically updates data for the HOW TO, INDICATORS and MAPS section of the Assistant from a range of proprietary and public sources. In the United States, our data sources include Dun & Bradstreet, Neustar, US Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of Economic Analysis and Internal Revenue Service. In Canada, our data sources include Dun & Bradstreet, Neustar, Statistics Canada, CRA and provincial governments. The content for the CONNECT section is provided by our clients by filling out a simple form. This typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.
