While it’s been an amazing ride having the benefits of Google Maps Engine (GME) available for your business and personal use at minimal fees, it’s time to move on. Google has notified users that support for this product will end in January 2016. Google Earth API support will end in December of 2015. MapBusinessOnline.com (MBO) may be a suitable substitute for your Google Engine mapping requirements. MapBusinessOnline.com, a web-based/Cloud business mapping service since 2010 has a growing user-base.

"We recently switched to Map Business Online at our company. Not only is MBO returning us better results than our old software, but it came with a 3500% decrease in yearly licensing fees! We couldn't be happier with the switch. Excellent ease of use. I was able to just open up the program and go. It's very user friendly. I did get stuck with one feature, and reached out to customer service for help. I didn't really expect to get anything in return, but they emailed me back within the hour, and I was only a trial member! Very pleased."
"I use it daily to visualize customers and sales territories, and to plan sales trips. It’s so intuitive."
