Business mapping software such as MapBusinessOnline has a range of potential applications. Organizations that know how to use it properly will gain a critical advantage in a tough economic environment.
What most people don't realize, however, is that mapping software is both an analytical and a marketing tool. With it, you can create compelling and accurate visual aids that help you leverage information more effectively — both for yourself and for your stakeholders. Here's a look at some of the ways you can create great presentations with MapBusinessOnline.
A radius map pinpoints a specific location and draws a circle around it. It is one of the most immediate and impactful visual aids — it can display critical data within a specific radius of that location. With a radius map, you can demonstrate:
A radius map is only one type of visualization available in MapBusinessOnline. The program also offers the options of creating heat maps, custom territories, drive times, and other graphics that express facts in a way that raw data can’t.
Ultimately, creating a strong presentation is about translating numbers and statistics into a format that is impactful and easy to understand. MapBusinessOnline takes your raw business intelligence — the data you accumulate in Excel, QuickBooks, Salesforce and other enterprise programs — and makes visual sense of it.
Overlaying information about your sales and marketing initiatives with demographic data tells you more about your customers and helps target future efforts on specific areas of interest. Business intelligence mapping software can also help you run test scenarios and compare sites for future expansion based on a variety of customizable factors like geographic segmentation, data filtering by geographic area or demographic category.
Organizations in a range of industries and sectors use MapBusinessOnline. Businesses that thrive on outside sales can use it to create territory maps and deploy staff based on clearly define areas of accountability. Franchises also can use it as a tool to guide future expansion efforts. Any enterprise trying to make a case for its viability with investors can use radius mapping or heat mapping to demonstrate the merits of its strategic plan.
Government agencies, nonprofits, insurers, financial service providers and more also use MapBusinessOnline. Whether your goal is promoting your business, running test scenarios, making informed decisions or soliciting management participation in upcoming projects, the custom maps you create using this powerful platform can serve as an integral component of any presentation.

"MapBusinessOnline.com has been an amazing tool for our company. It helps us to be more effective and efficient in our processes. It also provides a necessary tool for clear, concise communications with our team through visualization and supporting data."
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 MapBusinessOnline.
Over a period of a few weeks MapBusinessOnline shared several online web demo that showed exactly how MapBusinessOnline 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.
