According to an Forbes Insights article, 80% of all business data contains a location component, and it is critical to understand how location affects business. Geo-analytics using Maplytics provides a new context to Dynamics 365 CRM data based on location to help companies perform geographical analysis of their business. We have been discussing in our earlier posts how every feature in Maplytics has been carefully crafted to improve decision making from sales to service to marketing to supply chain logistics and operations. Maplytics currently supports French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish and English. Maplytics auto-detects the language of Dynamics 365 CRM and sets
its own language auto-magically!
