A great benefit of incorporating MapBusinessOnline mapping software into your strategic planning activities is that it provides an excellent way to bring your business data to life. Simply import data from your Excel spreadsheets or other resources such as Salesforce.com and QuickBooks, and you can plot selected data points on a map in the form of full-color pie or bar charts.
Displaying pie or bar charts on a map can provide a number of important business advantages. For instance, you can clearly see the breakdown of sales on a per-product basis for any region or territory you choose to target. You can also segment your customers based on certain demographic criteria such as age, gender, income or home value, which can prove invaluable when developing targeted direct mail campaigns. You can also see whether your customers are paying their bills by visually comparing invoices due vs. invoices paid.
We’ve made it easy to learn how to illustrate data on a map with charts. Simply follow the simple steps for color-coding your data, plotting your data files, choosing the way in which you wish to summarize your data by geography or territory, and selecting the various options regarding chart size, labeling, values and more.
Chart samples are automatically updated as you make your selections, and you can preview your charts before completing the process by clicking on the “Done” button.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding how to illustrate business data on a map with charts.
