  • Our latest release includes a little bit of everything! New features, new data, faster performance, and bug fixes.
  • New ways to define Trade Areas. Users can now define trade areas by uploading a list of FSAs (first 3 digits of the postal code). To take advantage of this feature, upload a Trade Area File as a Point-Based Trade Area and select Forward Sortation Area (FSA) as the Geography Level.

  • New Reports! We’ve added a couple new selections for report types: Household Spending by Major Group, Labour Force by 4-Digit NAICS code, Occupation by 4-digit NOCS code. Labour Force 4-Digit consists of 400+ categories of labour force, based on the 4-digit NAICS Codes ranging from Aquaculture Production (1225) to Veneer and Plywood Manufacturing (3212). Occupation 4-Digit consists of nearly 700 categories of occupations, ranging from Aircraft Assemblers (9521) to Senior Managers in Finance and Business (0013).
