Cloud-based — also known as browser-based — software is fast emerging as the preferred platform for enterprise applications. With browser-based software, program data and files are stored on a server’s secure Cloud hosted web service rather than on a user’s computer. This has a number of advantages, both for enterprise applications in general and mapping software in particular. These include:
The biggest concern about moving from offline to online mapping software is that of privacy. While there is always a risk of a security breach in both desktop and Cloud platforms, web-based programs are typically safer as there is less risk of user error. Your data security is Map Business Online’s number one priority. Map Business Online employs industry-standard encryption and security protocols to keep your critical data protected online at all times.

The Alternative Board (TED), an advisory board creation service for business of all types and sizes, used MapPoint to import customer locations, create and manage territories, and for visual market analysis. When MapPoint left them high and dry, they began looking for a MapPoint replacement. This process led them to Map Business Online.
Over a period of a few weeks Map Business Online shared several online web demo that showed exactly how Map Business Online would replace and improve upon the mapping technology TED had become used to. The Alternative Board recently renewed their Map Business Online subscription for another year.

"Map Business Online has played a major role in helping us to expand. It has helped us successfully map out our territories so that we know where we are and where we can be. With a clear picture of where we are, it has helped make it easier to locate available territory for our new Franchisees. Map Business Online has even helped us keep our guarantee and carry out its promise for a five mile protection radius for each Franchisee. Map Business Online has not only given us a map of where we are now, but it has also given us a map for our future."

"In a large company, with many layers of sales teams, sales management, territories, operations teams and distribution, it is vital to have a solution to quickly and easily display country and regional maps. I have tried multiple other mapping solutions in the past only to be frustrated by their limitations or by their complexity. Map Business Online perfectly fits my need. MBO has the versatility to allow me to build somewhat complicated maps but also allows me to knock out the quick, one-off request. MBO continues to add features and I am excited to see what new features come out next."
