Sales mapping plugins/apps is a fairly new addition to the sales team of any organization, but integrating sales data based on geolocation is the best way to improve the sales work and operation. If you are a salesperson and most of the time you spend your time in the field for the product demos and meetings with clients for the business, you need to search and recognize the exact client’s location as per their addresses on the map. Sometimes it could happen that you know the places based on the landmark but if there is industrial areas or market area, you end up marching through the streets.

So, AppJetty MappyField 365 provides the “Streetside imagery” (Open Street Map) features integrated into Bing Map. MappyField 365 is a  geo-analytical plugin of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM that represents the CRM data visualization on the map. The CRM users can plot the entity data on the map and perform the sales operations from the map itself.
