LOWELL, Mass., Jan. 21, 2015—Map Publisher SpatialTEQ Inc. today announced the release of MapBusinessOnline.com 4.4 – affordable business mapping software for sales, marketing and territory planning professionals in the U.S.A., Canada and the U.K. With MapBusinessOnline.com 4.4 MBO users will be able to overlay vector layers of cities and roads on top of sales territory maps, demographic maps or business planning maps. In addition, 4.4 provides a series of enhanced account management tools controlling the set-up of map editing teams, groups of annual subscribers interested in sharing map editing capabilities.
Road & City Vector Layers
City and road vector layers are new optional vector layers that provide accurate, labeled line and point layers to be used as overlays on user maps. This frequently requested feature adds additional visual references to advanced business mapping applications, like sales territory management. MBO map editors will be able to clearly define and display road networks that are relevant to their map’s mission. For instance, a major highway vector might be used to define general areas of sales responsibility on a sales territory map. Or city labels can provide obvious reference points for urban areas without covering shaded areas with boundaries or additional coloring. The user will be able to pick and choose street or city layers from a list of additional map layers. Sources for additional map layers include © OpenStreetMap contributors data. New vector layers are powered by SpatialTEQ’s proprietary FastMappingServer (FMS) map-attribute rendering engine.
Team Account Management
MBO 4.4 team account management, for annual subscribers only, will enable easier purchasing and upgrading options so that businesses can easily move users into and out of team editing groups. Controls will enable the selection of total user quantities at discounted prices. MBO team users will now receive additional map allowances including up to 400 saved maps per user, and up to 2400 MapShare sessions per user per year. MBO users will be able to purchase additional shared maps and multi-stop routing allocations. MBO 4.4 provides users with the ability to shift account login credentials from one email address to another.
Sales Territory Planning
Sales territory mapping functionality includes the ability to add demographic categories to territory data breakdowns, enabling views of total demographic values by territory. Easy territory creation workflows leverage demographic totals by territory; for instance MBO 4.4 users will be able to note total population by territory or total income by territory. Demographic layers and territories can be compiled by city, county, zip code, zip3, state and Census tract.
