MapBusinessOnline Tips & Tricks

Business Listing Industry Code Look-up – Be sure to try our enhanced Industry Code look-up or search tool in the Business Listings search tool. Choose either NAICS codes or SIC code search options and then search by industry subjects such as Pizza, or Castings – just to name a few examples. The search will return a list of industry details you can choose from. Remember it doesn't cost a thing to view the total number of listings per region under a given segment. This is helpful when investigating an industry by polygon, ZIP code, or State.

Enhancements to the Business Listing's SIC Industry Code database were included in a December map update. Users – Please remember the MapBusinessOnline integration allowing easy import of accounts and contact is included with your subscription. Click the green Get It Now button in the AppExchange. Other Map applications do not allow the export of all ZIP codes (point and boundary) within an area or territory. MapBusinessOnline provides an easy and complete ZIP code extraction.
