      "Size Up" helps local businesses compare data easier

      A new online tool designed to help local businesses grow and make smarter decisions launched this week.

      The Lake Superior Community Partnership released the online tool called "Size Up" on Tuesday. The tool shows Marquette County businesses highly specific data on revenues, salaries, health insurance costs and supplier locations among others. This information is compared against business all over the U.P. and into Wisconsin.

      "So it's a fantastic tool just for day to day knowledge," says Caralee Swanberg, director of business development. "Knowledge is one of the most important things when you're trying to make a plan to grow or just to make sure that you're on the right track."

      The service is free for Lake Superior Community Partnership members. For more information on Size Up, visit their website.
