ZIP codes are a critical map layer for conducting analysis in business mapping software. Originally created by the U.S. Postal Service to improve mail delivery, ZIP codes have become a meaningful geographic unit used by business to analyze markets, plan marketing campaigns, and define sales territories.
Businesses and non-profit organizations use interactive ZIP code maps for a variety of real life applications:
Map Business Online's ZIP code map layer can be turned off and on. ZIP codes can be color shaded to reflect areas of interest, territories, coverage areas or to simply highlight a ZIP code or two. ZIP code boundary lines can be adjusted by color and thickness interactively. And ZIP code labels can be appended by up to five additional data fields. Append your ZIP code labels with demographic data, calculated data or your own imported sales or operational data. Export lists of ZIP codes for use in 3rd party applications.
ZIP code data in Map Business Online is automatically updated quarterly to reflect US Postal Service changes. A complete list of all types of ZIP codes (boundary and point types) is included in the application assuring any legitimate ZIP can be queried, filtered and exported for use on your business.
Map Business Online offers a variety of methods for creating and sharing interactive ZIP code maps. So, whether you need advanced, hierarchical sales territory management maps or you just need a simple list of ZIP codes now is the time for you to leverage the power of interactive ZIP code maps for your business.

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 Map Business Online.
Over a period of a few weeks Map Business Online shared several online web demo that showed exactly how Map Business Online 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.
