MapBusinessOnline.com (MBO) is the perfect alternative to MapPoint. Our ex-MapPoint customers tell us that MapBusinessOnline is easy-to-use because it is very similar to MapPoint. MapBusinessOnline features updated maps and associated data, world class technical support, while avoiding the complexity of traditional GIS.
MapBusinessOnline.com is a Cloud-based mapping service providing business mapping capabilities since 2010. MBO was developed by the same team that originally created Esri's BusinessMAP – a desktop mapping alternative to MapPoint for a decade.
Since the end of 2014 many ex-MapPoint users have selected MapBusinessOnline as the best replacement for MapPoint because:
MapPoint maps & data become obsolete. Critical business decisions must be made with updated maps and the latest demographic data. Recently we helped a former MapPoint customer to migrate a census tract territory map to MapBusinessOnline. We discovered; MapPoint still has census tracts older than 2010. Even worse, and many users don't realize this, MapPoint has many out-of-date ZIP code boundaries.
MapPoint is unsupported. Imagine installing MapPoint on a new laptop running Windows 10. Trying to figure why MapPoint data visualization features have stopped working. You are on your own - MapPoint technical support has been discontinued.
MapPoint is not cloud-based. To some this may sound like a benefit – no need to upload your data into the Cloud. But please think again. Microsoft Azure, used by thousand businesses, is a leading security expert. It's hard to maintain the same level of security in a small/medium-sized business – too expensive. Plus, with the classic desktop app you have limited collaboration choices. Compare MapPoint to cloud-based business mapping software: you can access your maps from any device, and you can share a map as easily as sending a web link!
"I just wanted to say thank you for this amazing mapping tool! I've tried a number of sales territory map solutions and this is by far the best. I just (finally!) switched over from MapPoint and this is so much better, I wish I had switched sooner. Your videos and blog are also really helpful, though most things I have figured out on my own. It looks like I also have a lot more to discover as I explore the data visualization tools. Thanks again!"
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.
The Alternative Board
"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 MapBusinessOnline, 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."
For over a decade Microsoft MapPoint has been one of the leaders in the desktop business mapping software market, until it was discontinued by Microsoft in Dec 2014. The final version of MapPoint was MapPoint 2013.
