How Our Business Mapping Software Works
Business mapping software is an increasingly essential tool for many companies. It helps them to define and manage sales territories, improve field team productivity and visualize business data. But how exactly does it all work? And what can you use it for? In this article, we explain how our business mapping platform works and the ways you can leverage its location intelligence capabilities.
What Do Business Mapping Tools Do?
Business mapping tools are designed to collate data about customers, employees, assets, and revenue opportunities. This extends to more than just geographic data that can help with travel planning (although they can absolutely handle these fundamental route mapping tasks). Mapping software enables you to visualize and track the activity of your sales team, service engineers, or delivery drivers. It helps sales directors, customer service managers, and logistics professionals to make the most of their resources.
Map data allows businesses to increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability, by enabling them to gain insight into day-to-day activities. By integrating with your CRM, it can plan complex, multi-stop routes that save employees time and enable them to get more done. Online mapping also facilitates business planning as it can show you where profitable customer clusters are located, so that you can align sales territory plans accordingly.
Sales mapping software is ideal for businesses with field-based teams. If you have sales reps on the road, then you’ll know how important it is to maximize their client-facing time. Balancing new business development and existing relationship management is a delicate task that’s not always easy to get right. But our business mapping solution allows reps to plan time-efficient routes, schedule customer meetings, and easily find new prospects if one gets canceled. This reduces the administrative burden so that they can spend more time selling and generating revenue.
Our sales territory mapping software can also help you create territory maps using CRM data. Since it’s built directly on Salesforce.com it can pull customer information and visualize it for you. This enables sales managers to identify where new reps should be hired or existing territories can be adjusted. Using business intelligence to drive strategic decisions is easy when the data is available visually (instead of Excel spreadsheets). Spotting patterns or gaps becomes a simple process with interactive maps but provides a valuable competitive advantage.
MapAnything’s powerful delivery routing software can improve the speed and fuel efficiency of business travel. While Google Maps may be fine for personal journeys, it doesn’t have the capabilities to support complex multi-stop routing or integrate with your customer data set. Sales reps, engineers, and delivery drivers won’t need to waste time searching for zip codes or entering addresses since it links directly to your Salesforce.com records. Routes are also updated in real-time based on changing travel conditions and it’s easy to share maps with different staff.
Business Planning & Management
Using a mapping application can also inform strategic business planning and management decisions. Stakeholders are able to identify where customers with strong revenue potential are located or where they should base their vehicle fleet. Location-based planning is aided with color coding and heat maps that are easily shared and interpreted. It’s easy to customize map criteria based on customer type, purchasing potential, or any number of other factors. You’re also able to map business online or offline, so your customer insights can be accessed from anywhere with a WiFi connection.
How It Works
MapAnything was built as a platform for businesses by leading PhDs in the field of vehicle routing. It contains historical and predictive data for thousands of journeys to help your employees choose the fastest and most economical route. The data is updated in real-time so it always accounts for changing weather conditions and traffic congestion. Simply select the customers or locations that need to be visited and MapAnything will do the rest.
To use the geographic information system for strategic planning, simply connect it to your Salesforce CRM. It'll pull all the location based data of your customers into the tool and allow you to perform data visualization, create revenue-driven web maps, and identify areas of potential growth. Visualizing and analyzing data is quick and easy when you use a platform like ours.
Business mapping software is a powerful tool for every type of organization. Whether you’re involved in sales, operations, fleet management, or supply chain activities, mapping can improve productivity. It can reduce travel time, increase fuel efficiency, and enable you to make the most of your company’s resources. Sales mapping software tools can also inform business planning and strategic decision making for the future so that your company is always headed in the right direction.
