SpatialTEQ Inc., publisher of North America’s premier affordable business mapping software, announced the beta release of the MapBusinessOnline.com Automation Software Development Kit (SDK) – programmable access to map application’s routing, data input and spatial search features, for use in third party software.

Example data applications could include: automation of quarterly or monthly business results reporting, sales and marketing email campaign analysis by geographic segmentation, or periodical subscription and advertising analysis and results processing.
The new SDK will provide access to Map Business Online optimized and standard routing functionality for use in third party applications such as corporate logistic and supply chain management and business intelligence software. Route plans with turn-by-turn directions will be accessible for third party software use.
Example route plan access applications could include: automated school bus pick-up planning by neighborhood, and field technician work route assessments.
