"It goes beyond being a routing tool."

What do you like best?

The sheer fact that MapAnything can help an account manager see what's important to them on a screen and plan it out on a calendar that is part of the ecosystem is a huge win. Our initial use case for getting MapAnything was to help with new hires coming in and being introduced to a new territory. As reps have become more fluent in their territory and how to get there, we've seen a stronger need for showing visual data insights which MapAnything does well. We want the reps in the field to have a lot of empowerment. The only expectation is to have their week planned in advance. The MapAnything scheduling feature allows the reps to pull up all the data while they are in the office - the reps can easily see key customer attributes and product data which allows them to make smart business decisions. Another big perk is the support MapAnything has for enterprise organizations. This was a big +1 during our vendor selection phase since we do have a global instance.

What do you dislike?

Creating layers has a learning curve to it, especially if you have a complex org with data spread across several objects. If anything could use a UX update, it would be the layer creation in general. While it is functional today, folks that don't have an average level of data structuring might have a hard time piecing data elements together.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a strong understanding of the business case this tool will serve beyond getting to person there. Prior to MapAnything we had reps using Google maps, Waze, etc...if you just need to get to a single location there are plenty of options. The key thing is understanding the insights an account manager needs to make smarter decisions on who to sell to and why. Trial and error is the best way to test the waters, don't be afraid to experiment since you really can't break anything. Make sure you have someone that understands your CRM data which makes layer creation easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest gain so far is the scheduling feature for sure. Depending on the country, we did have legacy tools to help planning a day but the use case was more for a delivery truck versus a person doing sales calls. We have gotten a lot of really good feedback about the scheduling feature and when you combine that with map data it's really valuable. For example, we heard one use case in the Midwest where there was some rough weather, the account manager used MapAnything to see weather warnings due to tornadoes and he was able to quickly replan and reroute based on map data. We've heard the classic use case of customers not being available and MapAnything providing insights to other customers in the area so it's not time wasted. A great use case is being able to see product that are being undersold for whatever reason, the account manager can factor that into his day. Essentially the product helps us to not leave money on the table and provide a higher level of customer service - which is expected these days.

"Our new prospecting tool!"

What do you like best?

MapAnything has been a great tool for our sales team to go out and interact with prospects. They draw routes like they never have before and fill in key data to follow up later. This is entirely better than what we were doing before! Our sales team is really excited to dig into this, and our sales blitzes just became entirely more effective with one application with all of our Salesforce.com data behind it.

What do you dislike?

There are pieces in which are a bit clunky, like jumping in and out of sites to fill in this data, or having to work outside of the app while in the mobile setting to actually get to the location of the customer. The ideal situation would be for one seamless experience with one application which if it needed to interact with others in the background, it would just do natively.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you want before you start loading data. If you are a Salesforce.com user, make sure your data is clean and consistent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a plan of attack to prospecting now as opposed to just driving around like we were doing before. This will save our team a week a month in cold-calling and prospecting. Being able to plug all of our data directly into Salesforce.com and having all of the data match up perfectly is so key to our success with this product. When we were looking for a tool that compliments everything else were were doing, this was the clear winner.

What Field Sales solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A sales and client services manager's must!"

What do you like best?

The ability to plan client visits in one easy place makes our visits far more productive. With a large client database, it would be easy to miss current (and prospect) clients when visiting.

What do you dislike?

This may be my training but I need a cleaner way to export when I have a few clients selected (again this could be my training).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not only does it shortcut the process to gather information, we would easily miss clients if we did not visually see it. It makes planning any visit FAR more productive and cost-effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have realized a much stronger relationship with current clients and prospective clients are always impressed when we take the time to visit when we are in the area. It clearly shows our commitment to them and they probably have no idea how easy it is to plan and plan our visits.

"Robust but needs refining for the occasional user"

What do you like best?

Pin view of where my accounts are located, and how I can pick to include certain types/sizes of accounts in my view. It makes it really easy to understand the layout of the area I am visiting and where the businesses are located.

What do you dislike?

You cannot optimize your route if you have set meeting at certain times. For example let's say I want to visit 5 accounts in an area but I have a set appt at 10am with company A and I want to go see company A first but the optimized route has company A as the last stop. I would be nice to optimize only part of the route while being able to set up certain stops at certain times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Drive time savings and more efficient coverage of account visits. It also helps me determine if a business is worth chasing due to the area it's in or the fact that it may be a residence and not an actual business office.

"LOVE MapAnything!"

What do you like best?

The "Optimize Route" feature is my favorite aspect of MapAnything. I can plug in the schools I want to visit and have the best route laid out for me in just minutes. I also love the colored map pins that differentiate between my current accounts and my prospect accounts. I also like the fact that I can map several different routes with similar data and have the ability to save those particular routes for different dates.

What do you dislike?

I wish the mobile app of Salesforce allowed me to use the MapAnything a little more efficiently. It's too hard to use in that realm. I find the laptop version to be much more user-friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best tool I've ever used for optimizing routes with assessment of time management between stops. I also love the colored map pins used to determine which records are current accounts and which are prospect accounts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Best use of my time (and gas!). Best benefits = time management with time between stops in my territory.

"More than Maps"

What do you like best?

First off- MapAnything is a comprehensive solution. We have tons of things we really like and use alot. The ability to make a perimeter based on driving time is a huge, awesome feature. The second is the ability to search for keywords and have them populate the map. That feature, and click to create buttons are great tools for prospecting. Lastly- the support is awesome. They have been super helpful and have reached out many times to make sure we are taken care of and are utilizing all of its features.

What do you dislike?

As with all powerful tools, it can be daunting to learn all of its features. It would be cool to have an online learning platform like salesforce trailhead to fully learn all of its features. The ability to export with hyperlinks would be great as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you block out some time to learn the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are prospecting better, and creating location based customer and prospect lists. We have had an easier time compared to our old mapping tool, and have alot more flexibility with options now.

"Helping us "see" our data"

What do you like best?

The feature I like best is the ability to filter a query to the exact dataset that I am studying/analyzing. I have been able to get as granular as necessary for the projects assigned to me. Additionally, the ability to layer one query over another to analyze proximity has been a big benefit to my organization.

What do you dislike?

To date, the only feature that feels missing is the ability to print a map for inclusion in reports or presentations. It is easy enough to use screen shots, but seems to be an unnecessary step.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a bit of a learning curve to get up and running.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MapAnything helped us to plan out new program locations based on the home addresses of the individuals in our programs. We were able to identify several central locations within a reasonable distance to the individuals we support. As a result, we are able to more efficiently and effectively provide services. Future projects will involve studying how best to connect individuals to businesses/employers in their communities.

"Stellar Product, Amazing Team"

What do you like best?

This is a powerful app. In marketing, data and strategy are the most important pieces of the puzzle. MayAnything allows for you to interact with your data in such a way that you can rock your strategy. The team at MapAnything is awesome too. They jump on screen shares to help you along the way.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve which is mitigated from the outstanding team at MapAnything. You are only able to get drive times within a window, meaning we are unable to get drive times for over 4.5hrs. We would like to have 8 hours. The availability of demo support is a little tight. They clearly are a growing company providing a great service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the demo a try. If you have location based needs, this is the right app to use!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data visualization, creating custom lists of our data based on geotargeting. We have been able to target our marketing efforts in ways we have never been able to do before. We can interact with any object data in Salesforce in order to create reports which normally would take us a long time to build in Salesforce.

"No hassles - does exactly what it says on the tin."

What do you like best?

As an admin, I appreciate that the product is easy to manage. I almost never get calls from users about the product, even though I know they use it a lot.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any complaints. It pretty much is what it is. It is sensitive to address standardization quality, but there is only so much they can do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pair this product with a good address validation/standardization tool. If you use HEDA, be aware of how the HEDA model manages/implements multi-address functionality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Geolocation helps us to calculate distance from campus, which feeds into our predictive modeling. It is also very useful for our recruiters in the field to plan their itineraries.

"MapAnything is an innovative, engaging company to work with"

What do you like best?

I love their product. Simple and easy to use with a sleek UI to make routing and planning more efficient

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would say I dislike is the change of reps on our account, where I know this is part of the process, not sure how well the information is transferred from rep to rep on our account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say this is a great tool not only for your sales team but as an Admin I love it! Makes my job easier as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving routing and frequency issues in terms of our sales team in the field. We are also now realizing the other opportunities we have and can easily see them visually on the map. The major benefit would be the visual aspect! Who doesn't like colorful visual reports!?

"Field Reps Utilize When Needed Most"

What do you like best?

The convenience of creating queries and driving routes from both a desktop and mobile environment. The UI is very easy to navigate throught and most importantly, its integration with Salesforce.com.

What do you dislike?

Their are times when creating maps becomes a burden when you are not able to save them in order to retrieve them for later. Or the ability to share a mapanything type file with other users, e.g., a sales rep manager.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, very intuitive, customer support is by far the best and MapAnything continues to be innovative. They provide many online tutorials and live how to seminars: MapAnything University. They make it easier and easier to use the application and providing more tools within the application itself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are quickly able to plot a sales reps salesforce.com records to visualize what their territories look like. By creating various zones, a sales rep can effectively target areas without guessing where he or she haven't visited the last time. This increases a sales rep confidence in ensuring all their clients are obtaining the necessary attention to ensure a better customer relationship.

"Work smarter not harder! "

What do you like best?

I love that Map Anything shows me where prospects/customers are, and that I am able to filter them based on different business metrics. It has made following up with existing customers easier, and made finding prospects even easier. Being a field rep, it has drastically cut down on the amount of time it takes me to plan out my sales routes for each day.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike. Map Anything has been an amazing tool for me the last 11 months!

"The key to business success"

What do you like best?

Being able to condense my customer accounts into one picture so that I can strategically give each the attention they deserve is a key to my success and its all thanks to MapAnything.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I find the platform to be wholesomely satisfying. No negative comments to give here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its important to sign up for a webinar or take time with an Admin to learn the tricks and trades of this tool. Like any good tech piece, it takes time to learn but once you can master MapAnything, the world of business is at your fingertips. Take the time and help yourself. You won't be disappointed by making MapAnything a foundation of your business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using MapAnything I can now focus on key territory regions that are blooming with product interest which ensures my ability to strike while the iron is hot.

"Helpful tool, UX needs work"

What do you like best?

MapAnything gets granular and allows for a lot more focus on our data. We can choose whatever objects we want to map and this allows us to see the relationships between accounts, calls and both shelf and stocking information.

What do you dislike?

ce1 thing) the Map Anything App is a "white screen". The main problem is that I wanted this to be a tool for my sales staff to use and the process has been "painful" along the way. I have repeated emails from Map Anything that show that I tried "very hard".The notion of "adding" another app to the workflow to my staff is not the UX I am looking for. . The biggest thing is I have a low adoption rate due to the fact that the product doesn't work with the calendar (routes) when you type in account it finds it, but it might not be the account in the account's object...it might be from google.com.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

apAnything is more than maps and places to stay. With route optimization, travel time, travel distance and other variables to set proximity centers that also refine your search, this tool is SMART. It not only does routes and planning assistance, it helps you see where your points of interest are located in a heat map capacity. It is truly a great tool and has so much more to offer than routing.

"Great productivity tool with a learning curve "

What do you like best?

You can put in as much or as little detail with marker layers as needed. Map Anything helps my reps plan their day of meetings layering current customers, prospects, vendors and partners with clearly differentiated markers, allowing them to better focus on areas with more account concentration

The amount of support is great with their weekly training webinars for both admins and users.

What do you dislike?

Map Anything has a high learning curve. As an experienced Salesforce admin, I had a hard time understanding how to create and plot marker layers and needed to take the 101 and 102 webinars to truly understand how to best use the app to help my users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not as useful for newer Salesforce customers that may not have a lot of data. Once you gather a lot of data, this app is very valuable to help you filter your data and plot it the way you want on the map. I would also recommend to look at this tool as not only a sales tool, but a great marketing and ops planning tool. You want to be where your customers are and this is a great way to look at where your gaps are as a company.

Lastly, ensure that your admin has time to learn Map Anything first. This isn't an app that would get immediate adoption, and requires training

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My reps have been able to better plan their travel days based on filtered marker layers, as well as help us identify parts of the country where we need more of a presence.

"Allowed us to find some hidden gem customers"

What do you like best?

The ability to see our customers not by name, organization name, or even by zip code but instead visually. We didn't realize that we had a number of customers who were located within easy driving distance of some customers we were already planning to meet with and so we were able to add visits to those "hidden" customers.

What do you dislike?

I wish that we could purchase one user license. We were forced to purchase two even though we have only one person who travels to meet with customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to make our business trips to meet with customers more efficient by meeting with all of our customers who were in certain metros all in one trip.

"Time Saver"

What do you like best?

i like best the ease of plugging in the requirements and getting multiple ways to analyze my data. A real game changer for reporting.

What do you dislike?

not being able to use a report in Salesforce to use as my data source. I imagine I am not the only one hoping for this feature but it is not a show stopper.

Recommendations to others considering the product

being able to use Salesforce Reports and Queries as the data source

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Visual mapping of donors and clustering the data for a better idea for events. The biggest benefit is the fact that we didn't know what we were missing until we started using MapAnything. Now that we see what we can do...possibilities now are expanded.

What do you like best?

Mapanything's ease use, commute data and list views are features we use on a regular basis.

MapAnything allows us to represent our Salesforce data in an elegant, graphic fashion.

"Must have app for outside sales reps"

What do you like best?

MapAnything features a wide range of capabilities for salespeople and managers, opening up increased effectiveness for outside sales. The mapping tools can also be used in creative ways to assist with Salesforce administrative tasks that revolve around regions.

What do you dislike?

So far we have had nothing but a positive experience with MapAnythign. If there are any performance issues, the support staff has been quick to work on solving those issues while communicating directly with our team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Never hesitate to reach out to MapAnything support. They can provide assistance in troubleshooting technical issues and helping with use cases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our primary use for MapAnything has been trip planning for our outside sales staff, but we have also used it in planning out territories for our reps. The tool has allowed us to see how much income we receive from a territory and adjust boundaries as needed.

"Nice features, a little bit of a learning curve"

What do you like best?

The visual display of information and cross tabulated info is fantastic.

What do you dislike?

Importing the data sets for various locations can be a pain if you don't have the data in a perfect state before loading.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MapAnything is a great tool for those that are using Salesforce, as it ties in so nicely. It makes it easy for our sales team members to use the tool without having a lot of technical experience. It also has been a great tool for assigning territories based on client locations (say for clients that have facilities in 6 different states). And for the executive team, it gives us a quick look at the set up without having to read long documents that may not clearly layout what MapAnything shows so clearly.

"MapAnything: Necessary Tool for Increasing Selling Performance"

What do you like best?

MapAnything gives us the ability to improve our existing sales processes and the simplicity of the tool makes for a seamless integration.

What do you dislike?

The # 1 improvement would be to allow us to import/use existing SFDC reports vs. having to rebuild similar map layers from scratch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like any new tool, plan your role-out and work you plan. This takes training and followup to increase the value of your expected ROI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great way to map and visualize salesforce data"

What do you like best?

Since MapAnything sites on top of salesforce, you get easy access into any object or attribute you have in your org. This makes scaling very easy. You are able to share out map views to another user with just a few clicks. We just started using the route planning tool, for some of our field-based employees and the feedback has been great. The UX is pretty powerful.

What do you dislike?

The map zoom can be hard to use. It seems to only zoom in or out to certain "places" in the view. Sometimes the zoom is too far in, and you click to zoom out once and it is too far out. I wish I could get to that in between zoom place where the map is just like I want it. :) I also dont like that I cant share a map without screen grabbing it. I would like to be able to create a map and share it externally to someone not on the system, as read-only.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great tool for bringing any of your salesforce data into view, from a geo-location perspective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a way to map locations of accounts to see how many are in a market and how they associate to one another. We also needed a way to lay other data sets on top so show additional associations. The tool allows us to be more powerful and impactful with our strategies.

What do you like best?

Being able to plot accounts on maps for prospectig purposes has really helped my telesales team make effective prospecting strategies!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the application can take a long time to load.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a field-service based business can make it difficult for sales reps to realize what area they're calling into. MapAnything has allowed my team to prospect and build service runs to specific geographies which allows our field & operations teams to perform work & schedule jobs more efficiently.

When dealing with large amounts of data, it can take some time to plot the data on a map.

This is a great too and priced very reasonably. I really can't imaging prospecting without it.

This is really helping us be more strategic in marketing to new territories.

"MapAnything Review"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of multiple sales users able to identify one another sales territory.

What do you dislike?

The cost of MapAnything - as with many Salesforce integrations, is a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that your company has a large enough sales force so that you are getting the most out of your system. Their support was great and are available for ongoing trainings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nothing specific in regards to problems our team had at XTRACOM, we were just unable to fully utilize all the capabilities and with a smaller sales team - were able to use our own internal processes for tracking sales territory.

"Real Estate Use of Mapanything"

What do you like best?

I use Mapanything to plot out commercial properties of certain size across the region. The customizable interface allows me to assign a color scale so that I can do a quick search of the surrounding area for properties of similar size based on the parameters I set. Then I can hover over that specific point and get a basic summary of that property and know if I want to call on that owner or not.

What do you dislike?

About one out of 50 times the geolocation results sent back to our Salesforce integration will have the location off by sometimes a few hundred yards to once in a while a few miles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From a commercial real estate brokers perspective I would certainly recommend this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to take a visual search of the properties I am looking for rather than doing a database query. So if I'm searching in a city I'm not as familar with I can look for properties directly around my subject. If I was in database mode I have no idea where that particular property is in relation to my subject. Saves me a considerable amoutn of time not needing to look up each individual property from the database.

"MapAnything is definitely a benefit to the Salesforce ecosystem"

What do you like best?

MapAnything helps fill the gap that Salesforce Reports cannot do. The ability to join multiple objects and report on them and visually show them on a map helps our Sales Management team successfully see where account distribution on territories are overloaded or misrepresented.

I also love the fact that it is simple to use. I have been able to train my users without much instruction because of its intuitiveness (is that a word?). You get the point.

What do you dislike?

One limitation that I would like to see improved is when mapping out the territories by zip, city, county, we have to do a search manually and would be great to have a drag and drop function.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you define solid use cases to allow MapAnything to propose solutions that meet your needs. If you don't have clear use cases, it can take you a long time to implement and get a benefit out of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our Sales Management team has faced challenges of defining territories to maximize the field sales reps that they manage. MapAnything helps in understanding coverage of the accounts.

Another business problem it solves is for our marketing department that needs multiple points of data which the standard reporting functionality doesn't provide.

Additionally, we wanted to simplify how our sales reps would capture information on a visit they made at an account and the Map It and Disposition feature makes it easy and quick to complete a task that integrates well with SFDC.

"Awesome product...our "silver bullet"!"

What do you like best?

Strong integration with Salesforce and excellent customer service.

What do you dislike?

Having to explain to the sales people that don't adopt this quickly that they are missing out on a great opportunity to manage, plan, segment and execute their strategies by using this tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and administer. Takes a bit of training for end users if they are sales-types and not used to the structure of Salesforce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Customer segmentation and targeting the right people to call on with the right products. Additionally, targeting the right people in a concentrated area is incredibly easy with the routing capability.

"An Important Way to View Your Data"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up and get started with standard objects. Segmenting is easy as well through field criteria and also cross filters.

What do you dislike?

Can be a little tricky to set up with custom objects but documentation ended up being helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool - definitely check out their new radius tools - you can limit queries to contacts within a certain driving distance. It's amazing!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our main use for Map Anything has to do with populating email campaigns based on a contact's proximity to an event.

"Map Anything Review"

What do you like best?

I like the routing features with MA and the fact it's tied in to Sales Force. I like the people I've been working with, too.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how long it is taking to customize what we need and expected; I don't like that we had to change the type of licensing needed to tie SF to our program; it's turning out to be more expensive then what I had budgeted for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a complete understanding of the procedures to get what you want out of the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Routing for my retail team has been greatly approved. The Live experience has been frustrating.

MapAnything allows us to see all of our customers on a map and get to them easily and efficiently.

What do you dislike?

Still seems like a startup and are figuring out some bugs in new software, but the primary software works like a dream.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic company, tailored support, great product. I can't say enough great things about them! (Especially Craig Cameron!)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to scale our business, as most of our business is collecting food. Now we can spend almost no time on creating routes, and all of our time collecting food.

What do you like best?

I can create campaigns based on regions that I otherwise wouldn't be able to create.

I wish I had more ability to segment by zip codes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for mapping routes and creating unique territories that don't follow traditional boundaries.

I can see where we're having the most success for our sales team visually. I can segment our products and find our best territories for each.

"Powerful for specific applications"

What do you like best?

I really liked the way I could configure maps within SalesForce, using a variety of data points.

What do you dislike?

The inability to download high-quality pdf images of maps for different use cases is frustrating, and ultimately forced me to look elsewhere for mapping software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic if you want to use internal info and tracking. Less useful if you need to generate public reports, because there is still no high-quality export feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using MapAnything to map our client base on different scales across the state, taking into account different demographic factors.

"Very helpful for visualizing geographic data"

What do you like best?

Hotspots showing from where our patrons are traveling; ability to create regions based on counties, states, etc. and limit data to those specific regions

What do you dislike?

We have a lot of records and sometimes the load time can be slower than I'd like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We don't use as a daily tool, but it's extremely helpful when we do need to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to better understand our reach with local patrons as well as patrons from outlying areas. With this data, we are a strong partner with local tourism businesses and can create targeted promotions and packages to out-of-area patrons (and potential patrons).

Nothing. We're very happy with the application.

"Great Product and Great Staff!"

What do you like best?

The MapAnything staff is so helpful! They have no problems jumping on a call to walk me through any issues I might be having. And now it has it's own app!

What do you dislike?

As an admin, it would be helpful to be able to select one of my users to be able to view from their log-in. Without having to do so from a computer and through SalesForce.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend MapAnything. Not only for the use of the product, but for the phenomenal customer support.

"One of my favorite Salesforce Add-Ons"

What do you like best?

The flexibility of the product to map our existing database using different parameters is really powerful. The service is also excellent - they provide training when needed and are super quick to response. I've just added their business data layer to supplement our own lead database and am excited to leverage that.

What do you dislike?

The UI needs work. It's a bit clunky but they are aware and I've heard they plan to make improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just use it for 6 months.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to be able to visualize our opportunity set and set regional targeting strategies and campaigns.

"PM of Technology Sales Support"

What do you like best?

New Schedule Feature and ease of use building marker layers

What do you dislike?

Inability to directly create a driving route from a schedule you have built. You must save your schedule and then navigate to Route, create new and import the schedule you saved. Time consuming and would be nice to click a button from schedule to build driving route directly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily and weekly Sales planning/Identifying leads/prospects in a territory you are working. Increased level of leads for potential conversion to customers.
