A great benefit of incorporating Map Business Online 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.

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.

"I have been using MapBusinessOnline for about 8 months and couldn’t be happier with the services it provides. I have employees and myself who map around 250 routes monthly for our sales team. The interface is easy-to-use and the abilities are exactly what I need. My sales team finds the maps and step by step routes easy to follow and accurate. My store lists change every quarter and the uploading system allows me to quickly upload a new list and categorize the account by priority using colors and shapes. I have also used the heat mapping capabilities and found those easy to customize and quick to use. As with any advanced software, this does take a week or two to learn the more complex features, but it is well worth the time invested. This is the software I would have designed if I was to create one myself. Great job!!!"

"Very satisfied and happy with the program! Our organization was a little nervous when we found out we had to replace MapPoint. Once we came across Map Business Online, we knew we had found the program for us. Not only are there many features for the map creators, there are also a lot of usable features for the individuals that receive the view-only shared maps. This is a great program and with the way our organization is changing, I have no concern about recommending it to other internal departments."
