Microsoft MapPoint was Discontinued
For over a decade Microsoft MapPoint has been one of the leaders in the desktop business mapping software market before it was discontinued by Microsoft in Dec 2014. http://www.microsoft.com/mappoint/en-us/home.aspx. The last version of MapPoint was MapPoint 2013. There will be no MapPoint 2016 or MapPoint 2017.
Map Business Online is Your Best Option to Replace MapPoint
MapBusinessOnline.com (MBO) is the perfect substitute business mapping software for MapPoint. MapBusinessOnline.com is a Web-based/Cloud-based mapping service providing business mapping capabilities since 2010. MBO was developed by the same team that originally created Esri’s BusinessMAP – a desktop mapping alternative to MapPoint for a decade.
Since end of 2014 many ex-MapPoint users selected Map Business Online as the best replacement for MapPoint because:
- Only MBO has almost identical feature set & price. Go ahead and compare. MBO and MapPoint have similar UI concepts.
- MBO has recent maps, address and demographic datasets.
- MBO runs on Windows & Mac. It is available as Desktop & Online App.
- MBO provides great & personalized technical support. We help MapPoint customers to get up and running with MBO.
Three Top Reasons to Stop using MapPoint
- MapPoint maps & data become obsolete. You really want to make accurate business decisions with recent maps and latest demographic data. Recently we helped former MapPoint customer to migrate census tract territory map to MBO. Boy, MapPoint still has census tracts older than 2010.
- MapPoint is unsupported. Imagine installing MapPoint on new laptop running Windows 10. Or trying to figure why data visualization stopped working. Nobody is there to help you.
- MapPoint is not cloud-based. For some it may sound like a benefit, as you don’t need to upload your data into cloud. But think again. Guess, who has more power to provide the best security options: small/medium business or giants like Microsoft running their Azure cloud for millions of businesses? The answer is evident. Plus with classic desktop app you have limited collaboration choices. Compare it to cloud-based business mapping software: you can access your maps from any device and you can share a map as simple as sending a web link!
