When looking for a MapPoint alternative, a cloud based alternative is crucial. We’ve worked on the collaborative aspects of our mapping solution to make sure it can meet the demands of businesses today.
Collaboration is an important part of any team. Working together seamlessly speeds up processes and leads to greater results. To ensure your team is working together in the best possible way, you need to have the best tools available to facilitate it.
For users of MapPoint, collaboration is limited. As MapPoint is stored on your local computer’s hard drive, multiple users cannot interact and edit maps from different locations at the same time. The only real way to collaborate involves the laborious task of manually moving the map file to a shared network and accessing it one at a time – Not an ideal method for a modern organization. With eSpatial, we’ve developed a powerful alternative to MapPoint, used by thousands of users daily.
Share Maps Instantly With Colleagues
With eSpatial, you can share your mapping projects with colleagues and invite them to work with you. You can choose to share your individual maps, or entire Workspace of maps with multiple people or even groups. You can even go more advanced and give individual users specific permissions for each map such as view only or edit options. This is a much faster and safer alternative to MapPoint’s technique.
Collaborate Together Seamlessly
If you’ve shared a map with a team of colleagues, you can all access the map simultaneously with the ability to make changes in real time (Provided you have given those users the correct permissions). For example, members of a sales team may need to update a single map through the day from multiple remote locations. This can’t be done with MapPoint, as it’s installed locally.
Keep Track Of Changes in Your Projects
With a team of people working on a map, it’s important to know who is making what changes and when. Another feature that MapPoint lacks in an in-app notification system to inform you of changes. We’ve implemented this to keep you in the know of who is making changes to your project. Therefore you can rest assured that any changes to your mapping projects are recorded. Passing a file along manually in MapPoint means anyone could potentially edit it along the way.
Whether you are working with colleagues across the room or the country, real time collaboration can save time and ensure that your business runs efficiently. As MapPoint is no longer supported, it’s important to start looking for a replacement, but your MapPoint alternative also needs to provide the tools to allow your team to collaborate, saving time and ensuring that your business continues to run efficiently.
Why not try out a cloud based mapping software that offers all of these benefits and collaboration features?
