Benefits of Interactive Maps

Interactive mapping software is more than just a presentation tool. While the ability to create attractive, eye-catching custom maps can be incredibly useful when advocating for new ideas or initiatives, it's also essential for strategy development and testing out different scenarios, as your visualization workshop adjusts and fine tunes their marketing, sales or planning. Interactive maps help with:

  • Sales territory management: Using an interactive map, you can see which areas are meeting their benchmarks and which are underperforming, and assign resources appropriately.
  • Market analysis: With an interactive map, you can drill down on demographic information in a specific area, filtering out unwanted factors to develop more targeted advertising and sales plans.
  • Site selection: An interactive map lets you test out potential sites for a new location or business expansion, and look at factors such as area demographics, real estate pricing, competition location and more.
  • Route planning: MapBusinessOnline's interactive mapping software is ideal for route planning. With it, you can see where your customers or clients are and while securing the most efficient way to get from point A to point B.

"I have had the pleasure of using MapBusinessOnline for the past 5 years and it is an excellent and affordable tool for my clients. I am a franchise consultant, and many of my clients are just starting to get into franchising. The first main question many of them have is they don’t know the demographics around their current location, so they don’t know how to create territories for their franchisees. I am able to easily utilize MapBusinessOnline to draw a prototype territory around their existing location, do a deep dive into the many different demographics that MapBusinessOnline offers, and help the client determine the basics of their new territories, including mileage, population, household count, purchasing habits and age distributions. This tool has been so helpful that many of our clients obtain their own accounts as they begin to sell franchises and grow their business. Thank you, MapBusinessOnline, for providing such a helpful tool that is affordable and easy to use!"
