Tools to navigate your finances as a small business owner | Dollars and Sense

Are you trying to figure out how to cut costs or trying to stay afloat? The Greater Sacramento Economic Council has a free tool to help with your finances.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Staying open is a big challenge for businesses everywhere during the coronavirus pandemic, but there is some free help available. The Greater Sacramento Economic Council has a free tool available called SizeUp to help businesses with their numbers.

The program was created in response to the many businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic that were looking for help. SizeUp uses business intelligence and market research to help companies evaluate their business plans.

Business owners plug in their financial and business numbers on the website and can then analyze competitive benchmarks, find customers, suppliers and competitors, and pinpoint the best locations to advertise.

SizeUp can help business owners improve and gain back lost revenue, entrepreneurs looking to open a business, and those recently laid off and going into self-employment. 

“You can see these businesses are making strong moves and more efficient productive operations with less people," said Barry Broome, president and CEO of Greater Sacramento Economic Council. "SizeUp is like a software program on a website that’s free for businesses that can go on and model their business.”
