Our BusinessProfiles family of products consists of our core BusinessProfiles product and a variation - BusinessProfiles Lite.
BusinessProfiles is based on Data Axle data and covers approximately 1.1 million Canadian businesses. It provides users with counts of businesses by industry class or North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code, employee size, and sales volumes for each census dissemination area. The types of businesses range from "eating and drinking places" to "insurance carriers" and "general merchandise." Many retailers use BusinessProfiles for site planning, merchandising, optimizing store layouts and targeting business prospects. The database is also valuable for helping to evaluate and execute B2B marketing efforts.
A subset of 30 summary-level variables is available in BusinessProfiles Lite.
