Display Your Business Data Using MBO Color Coding and Heat Map Options

A color-coded map using contrasting colors on a map is an excellent way to visually represent critical business data. Map Business Online gives you the tools to use your own data or provided demographic data to create dynamic color-coded maps that can help take your business to new heights. Our affordable business mapping software also gives you the option to color code by heat map, color code points, color code cities, color code ZIP codes or color code states.

The advantages of using heat-mapping software for your business include:

  • Create intensity based data points based on numeric data associated with product, sales potential, financial reporting, and other numeric business values.
  • Color code specific administrative district areas using criteria such as ZIP codes, city, county, or census tract.
  • Emphasize areas of customer density to avoid market saturation and identify areas of opportunity.
  • Identify and label territories as unproductive or cold (using the color blue), extremely active or hot (red) and everything in between.
  • Create maps with different colored layers of data so you can evaluate and compare several geographic/demographic criteria at once.
  • Use heat-mapping software to print large color-coded wall maps that serve as an effective visual presentation tool.
  • Identify customer density within trade areas.
  • Create interactive maps you can share with colleagues by embedding them in PowerPoint presentations or sending them via email file attachment.

Using Heat Maps to Visualize Your Business Data

Heat maps make it easy to use color to illustrate customer densities or sales activities. Heat maps can also help you identify and target areas that offer the most and least sales potential, enabling you to maximize the effectiveness and productivity of your sales team.

Our mapping software includes complete heat map color shade controls, allowing you to scale from cold to hot (blue to red) or hot to cold (red to blue). You can even create a ZIP code heat map! Share your heat map views with your salespeople and colleagues as interactive web maps or image links, or print them for wall display in your office or conference room.

Color Code by Administrative District

Map Business Online allows you to import business data and color code it by sales/administrative district. That’s right; color code states, color code counties, or color code zip codes. And we’ve added even more administrative districts for you to color code. Choose from census tract, city, county, MSA, state, ZIP 5 or ZIP 3 options to express sales volumes, customer counts, and demographic data. Our software solution can total or average your values by district or territory using flexible range and color assignments. Empower your salespeople by using Map Business Online to identify areas of opportunity within each district.

Color Code by Point

Map Business Online enables you to easily import files from Microsoft® Excel, CRM, accounting, and contact management software programs and color code thousands of data points based on sales potential, customer type, product type or other relevant criteria. Just set up a spreadsheet column and start color-coding! You can even import your own custom symbols to create a color coded map tailored to your unique business or industry.
