One of the most significant advantages to business mapping with Map Business Online is that it gives you access to up-to-date demographic data from the U.S. Census and other reliable sources. This allows you to create a variety of useful and insightful visualizations that will help you make informed business decisions and ultimately run a more efficient operation. Some of the things you can do with Map Business Online's census data mapping features include:
Users can employ Map Business Online to create heat maps — such as the U.S. population density map above — or custom-coded territory maps based on specific criteria. It's also a useful tool for route planning and a powerful presentation aid when making a pitch to management, investors or other stakeholders.
You may think you know your customers and the territories you serve, but in today's data-driven economy, intuitive or received wisdom is no longer enough. To make smarter, more pragmatic decisions, you need hard information from reputable sources. When it comes to demographics, official census data is the most reliable standard for information about a neighborhood. Census data lets you know what a sales territory looks like today, how it's changed over time, and what it may look like in the future.
Mapping census data onto an interactive map is one of the best ways to make use of this business-critical information. When you present information in a visual format, it's easier to spot trends and identify demographic pockets that aren't visible when dealing with customers in person. A census map is an objective format for analyzing objective data — one that can be customized and filtered to meet the needs of your business.
Depending on which subscription package you choose, Map Business Online comes with full access to several years worth of U.S., Canadian or British census data. Some of the demographic factors you can plot onto an interactive map include:
Users can selectively choose and filter these categories to create custom census data maps for market analysis, strategic planning and more.

"In a large company, with many layers of sales teams, sales management, territories, operations teams and distribution, it is vital to have a solution to quickly and easily display country and regional maps. I have tried multiple other mapping solutions in the past only to be frustrated by their limitations or by their complexity. Map Business Online perfectly fits my need. MBO has the versatility to allow me to build somewhat complicated maps but also allows me to knock out the quick, one-off request. MBO continues to add features and I am excited to see what new features come out next."
