Map Business Online is a powerful territory management and ZIP code mapping platform for education providers. Keep reading to explore some of the many things you can do with it.
Determining where to build a new school is a complex and sensitive issue. School boards face tight budgets as well as political pressure to deliver the best level of service for all students. A data-driven approach to site selection is one of the best ways to make smarter decisions that deliver a stronger return on your investment and minimize blowback from parents.
Map Business Online uses up-to-date Census data to create school district ZIP code maps that show you where families live, where your current schools are and which areas would be best for expansion. This can help you make more informed decisions and provides an accessible visual aid that can be useful in community outreach.
MBO includes public school districts and public data layers describing schools by staff allocations and pupil population. School district areas can be color shaded by a variety of demographic categories including population, population by age groups, house hold income levels, and ethnicity. Even pertinent school business data can be imported for use in color shading and classifying school districts.
Location mapping software like Map Business Online can also be used to reduce overhead expenses associated with busing and transportation. By enabling the creation of custom ZIP code maps that show you where your current students are and what public transportation options are in the area, location mapping software can help you better organize your vehicles and drivers, keeping fuel and maintenance costs down. MBO supports time windows for scheduling and time planning.
Map Business Online allows for automatic imports of student information from Excel and other databases, providing seamless integration with your existing software and, ultimately, more accurate and informed route planning. This has obvious benefits for budget-conscious public school boards, including easier scheduling and lower operating expenses.
Map Business Online isn’t just for public education facilities. Private higher education institutions can use our business mapping software to create sales territories and identify applicant leads.
For private schools, sales territory mapping is used to identify and deploy outreach teams in areas where they will have the most impact. Map Business Online shows you demographic data as well as your previous sales history to identify your best prospects and assign staff accordingly.
Both for-profit and public education providers know an investment in new systems or software can't be frivolous. Limited budgets — as well as the learning curve associated with training staff on new systems — require software that delivers genuine value quickly.

"I have had the pleasure of using MapBusinessOnline for the past 5 years and it is an excellent and affordable tool for my clients. I am a franchise consultant, and many of my clients are just starting to get into franchising. The first main question many of them have is they don’t know the demographics around their current location, so they don’t know how to create territories for their franchisees. I am able to easily utilize MapBusinessOnline to draw a prototype territory around their existing location, do a deep dive into the many different demographics that MapBusinessOnline offers, and help the client determine the basics of their new territories, including mileage, population, household count, purchasing habits and age distributions. This tool has been so helpful that many of our clients obtain their own accounts as they begin to sell franchises and grow their business. Thank you, MapBusinessOnline, for providing such a helpful tool that is affordable and easy to use!"
