Three Top Reasons to Stop Using MapPoint

MapPoint maps & data become obsolete. You really want to make accurate business decisions with updated maps and latest demographic data. Recently we helped a former MapPoint customer to migrate a census tract territory map to MBO. Boy, MapPoint still has census tracts older than 2010. But what is even worse, and many users don't realize: MapPoint has out-of-date ZIP code boundaries.

MapPoint is unsupported. Imagine installing MapPoint on a new laptop running Windows 10. Or trying to figure why data visualization features have stopped working. Nobody from MapPoint support is there to help you.

MapPoint is not cloud-based. For some it may sound like a benefit, as you don’t need to upload your data into the Cloud. But think again. Guess, who has more power to provide the best security options: a small/medium-sized business or giants like Microsoft running their Azure cloud for millions of businesses? The answer is evident. Plus with the classic desktop app you have limited collaboration choices. Compare it 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!

Microsoft MapPoint Was Discontinued

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.
