Level Up and Grow

The Essential Data Tool Built with Local Government for Local Government

At Impact Data Metrics, we understand Place.

Working with economic development and growth teams, we have created a web tool, IDM Business, that allows you to respond more effectively to opportunities and challenges.


We are supporting councils with local plans to deliver thousands of new jobs for residents; revealing supply chains for community wealth building programmes and uniquely revealing 1000s of businesses in your hidden economy.

Policy and Planning

As subscribers to IDM Business, the council have a real-time view of the sectors that are growing and thriving in the borough of Ealing, with the ability to see the full local business base for the first time – not just the businesses registered at Companies House. The insights we can derive from the various tools on the platform enable us to plan more effectively and with greater confidence. IDM Business will be a great asset in helping us evolve our inward investment model and therefore help us achieve our target of 10,000 new jobs for Ealing residents, a key priority of Ealing’s Council Plan.
