A sales pipeline is a simple, graphic overview of where your sales are, and where you can expect them to be at the end of a given period. Used properly, it is both an at-a-glance snapshot of current opportunities and a predictive tool that can help you move forward effectively.
Like all sales tools, a pipeline is only as good as the data that’s being fed into it. Useful analysis requires looking beyond the bottom line at a range of different factors, including geographic and demographic realities for each of your sales territories.
That’s where MapBusinessOnline comes in. MapBusinessOnline is a cloud-based data-mapping platform that can be used to develop more accurate sales pipeline visualizations based on your business data.
Sales pipeline mapping with MapBusinessOnline is easy and affordable. Import business data from your normal management system and view it against accurate, up-to-date maps with demographic information, adding vital context that shows you where your team is most effective and where additional resources are necessary to meet and exceed your desired quotas.
From there, MapBusinessOnline lets you create custom sales territories that ensure your staff is evenly distributed and positioned where they will have the most impact. Map Business Online even lets you share data among team members, leading to improved collaboration and ultimately more sales.
Other MapBusinessOnline features for your salesforce include:
Working with MapBusinessOnline is easy and intuitive – the cloud-based platform integrates easily with Salesforce, QuickBooks and other software, allowing you to seamlessly share your most recent data between applications.
There are clear benefits to visualizing any sales pipeline with MapBusinessOnline. As a graphic tool, it brings to light demographic insights that are easy to miss when looking exclusively at raw data. MapBusinessOnline shows you where your team is and where it needs to be. It also shows you who your current customers are and where the best future prospects might be hiding. When you visualize this information, you can make informed decisions and allocate resources in a more strategic manner.

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.

"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. MapBusinessOnline 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."
