Your Business Map is a regularly published newsletter designed to update and assist the users of MapBusinessOnline. We encourage the sharing of actual map success stories because it is you - the growing MBO user base - that is exposing the true power of business mapping. Please send us your stories and we will share them with others.
We are proud to announce release of the fourth version of MapBusinessonline.com. MBO 4.0 comes with a series of critical enhancements and brand new features developed at the request of our user base. Added functionality includes expanded territory management tools, new base map layer options, distance measurements, map printing and map display enhancements, extended map data & filtering options, and most popular drawing tools.
Expanded Territory Management Tools
New Base Map Layer Options
MapBusinessOnline 4.0 includes a basic measuring tool for quick point-to-point distance measurements. Examples of how users would apply the Measure Tool include determining territory widths, measuring the minimum distance between two retail locations, or viewing how far a new home is located from work.
Map Printing and Map Display Enhancements
Professional business users often use MapBusinessOnline to create presentation graphics or wall maps that inform constituents about business objectives or results.
New Map Data & Filtering Options
With MBO 4.0 users may now include web and email links with their imported business data and customer mapping software. Embedded links will display and open from the map. MBO 4.0 offers a wide array of data filters within the Data Window. With this release users may assign unique symbolization to filtered datasets and marketing lists for easy map identification. Users now have the ability to filter imported datasets, display just those results on the map.
MapBusinessOnline makes sharing your business map’s with your constituents easy. Once you’ve saved your map view you can share it by clicking the Man Woman Icon on the tool bar – right next to the Print Icon. Here you will generate a URL you can then email or text to a map viewer. These URL strings are not searchable from search engines so as long as you control your link sharing, your maps are secure.
Remember, each licensed user of MapBusinessOnline includes up to 100 shared map views per month at no charge. That’s 1200 per year. Review your work flow to determine an estimate of the number of shared map views you’ll require. If you want to share many more maps or generate a lot of views we offer blocks of shared map views for an additional fee. Just Contact us for more information.
