Introducing IMPLAN’s First Enhanced Guide

April 4, 2024 by Chandler West

Economic impact analysis isn’t just for those with years of experience in the field of economics anymore. 

For decades, IMPLAN has been the tool that economists and researchers turn to when they want to measure the impact of an economic event on a region. IMPLAN has long been trusted to deliver easy-to-use impact modeling, and extensive economic analytics. A few months ago, the IMPLAN Product Development team launched Quick Start Guides, which make it possible for those without an economics background to perform economic impact analysis quickly and easily by following a series of prompts that appear on the screen inside the application.

We’re happy to share that engagement with these guides has exceeded our expectations. We’ve used your feedback to enhance our navigator, creating a new and improved version of the Construction & Operations guide. 

The updated guide includes:
  • Guided, specific workflows for different study scenarios
  • The ability to portray multi-year approaches to construction
  • In-line support that’s contextual to your study as well as your position within the workflow
  • Automatic event and group configuration

In an environment with so much new construction on top of the ongoing operations of existing facilities, community leaders, business leaders, marketers, non-profit organizations, investors, and many other decision makers seek insights about the economic impacts of all this change. Understanding how one economic event sends ripples across the community, the region, and beyond can help them impress stakeholders, earn tax incentives, win grants, garner local support, and so much more. The Enhanced Construction & Operations Guide leads you through every step of the process, providing tips and insights along the way.
