It seemed like a good idea at the time. When Map Business Online was first envisioned, Adobe Flash Player stood out as the solid web-based platform upon which to build our solution for serving up a fast, compelling, and feature rich business mapping software. Alas, ten years later Adobe has announced it is cancelling the service on December 31, 2020.
Map Business Online provides access to advanced business mapping cloud services without Adobe Flash Player. To do so today we encourage you to download the Map Business Online desktop app. We will be releasing an App soon for non-subscriber access to shared maps.
Relax, these apps for Mac and Windows, laptops and desktops, provide easier access to the tool, allow faster uploads of data, and present behind the scene updates you will barely notice.
Users can still access Map Business Online through your web browsers until Adobe Flash Player is ended next year, unless your web browser of choice disables it. Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari have all already applied some restrictions on Flash Player apps requiring user permissions to enable the platform. Additionally, some user IT departments may already be restricting access to Flash Player. Tell them about the Map Business Online App. Have them contact us with questions.
We will also be offering an alternative browser-based application for non-subscribing shared map viewing. This will be released in 2020.
If, after Flash is canceled at the end of 2020, you or other users of Map Business Online feel a full-blown web application is still required please contact us and tell us why.
