In 2014 MapPoint announced they reached the end of the road, leaving many who loved the product scratching their heads. After a 20-year run they ended things by recommending those using the tool to turn to PowerBI for Excel and Sharepoint in order to visualize their business data on a map. But there is something better… SPOTIO, your MapPoint alternative.
A few reasons salespeople used MapPoint:
Organization and advanced preparation
Optimized routes to save time and gas money
Route editing and historical customer data on the go
For a product with so much support, you’d think there would be more to it. MapPoint was far outdated and required computer access to utilize.
Despite their heartbreak since the close, many turned to SPOTIO – The #1 Door to Door sales tracking app available on the market.
