MapBusinessOnline.com (MBO) is the perfect alternative to MapPoint. Our ex-MapPoint customers tell us that Map Business Online is easy-to-use because it is very similar to MapPoint. Map Business Online features updated maps and associated data, world class technical support, and has no 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’sBusinessMAP – a desktop mapping alternative to MapPoint for a decade.
Since end of 2014 many ex-MapPoint users selected Map Business Online as the best replacement for MapPoint because:
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 But what is even worse, and many users don't realize: MapPoint has out-of-date ZIP code boundaries.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!
"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 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.
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 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."
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.
