Newest Industry Intelligence chapter replaces, improves upon popular “Coronavirus Update” chapter. 

Raleigh, N.C. – August 1, 2022 – Vertical IQ, the leader in Industry Intelligence, has launched another content upgrade designed to enhance the information and insights available to its users. The new “Current Conditions” chapter replaces the “Coronavirus Update” chapter and includes a number of improvements as well. 

“Our popular ‘Coronavirus Update’ was initially launched in response to COVID-19 as a way to keep Vertical IQ users apprised of the numerous impacts the pandemic was having on specific industries,” explains Vertical IQ CEO and co-founder, Bobby Martin. “The pandemic has evolved, and it was time to take a new approach with this valuable information too.”

Martin notes that the new “Current Conditions” chapter builds on the many popular aspects of the “Coronavirus Update” chapter and also includes several helpful new features. 

  • The “Current Conditions” chapter will be Vertical IQ users’ default to see what is happening in each industry.
  • The revamped chapter’s “Recent Developments” bullet points have expanded to cover a broader array of industry-relevant topics beyond just COVID info.
  • The “Industry Indicators” content, which was previously found under the site’s “Industry Trends” chapter, has relocated to the “Current Conditions” chapter and includes Employment and Wage Trends, as well as Price Trends, where applicable.

Martin concluded: “At Vertical IQ, we are always looking for ways to improve the Industry Intelligence we provide, and I’m confident that this enhanced ‘Current Conditions’ information will be a valuable addition for our users.”
