CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Aug 22, 2011 -- InfoGrow Corporation ( www.infogrowcorp.com) has launched a new program to help developers migrate their mapping applications from MapPoint Web Services to Bing Maps. Microsoft announced earlier this year it will no longer support the older MapPoint platform as it migrates its users to the more powerful, faster, and graphical Bing Map platform.
Bing Maps allows corporations and organizations to create powerful marketing and operation mapping applications, such as route mapping, territory analysis, and customer proximity maps. Bing Maps provide fast and graphically appealing bird's eye and street-level mapping views for companies to use in better planning the way they deploy people and resources.
InfoGrow has been a mapping pioneer for more than a decade. In addition to its Bing mapping tools, it also has created "CRM2Maps" that link Bing mapping technology to powerful customer databases inside Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. InfoGrow offers CRM2Maps as a FREE mapping tool that gives users the ability to map leads, accounts, and contacts inside Dynamics CRM 2011 for making better sales and marketing decisions. CRM2Maps is a powerful, visual, and easy-to-use tool, providing users the convenience of mapping inside CRM for increased sales rep productivity and greater user acceptance of CRM. With just one click, users can convert a CRM record into a map with street, image, or a bird's eye view and save time in planning their trips. Users can also retrieve detailed driving directions to the displayed location from any address.
"CRM2Maps is the first in a series of innovative mapping products designed to help businesses make better, more informed decisions about sales and marketing," said Bob Sullivan, InfoGrow president. "Dynamics CRM 2011 users can expect to see additional modules from InfoGrow, for call planning, territory management, service planning and target marketing."
Dynamics CRM users are encouraged to contact InfoGrow to share their ideas and requests for mapping modules. "Having mapping inside CRM leverages the power of the data in CRM, for better sales and marketing decisions, while also increasing user acceptance of CRM," notes Sullivan.
