Map Dynamics 365 CRM Data
How can Paul, a Senior Sales Manager visualize his Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM data based on Locations?
Paul was looking at means to view his client data in Dynamics CRM based on their locations. His web search landed him on the webpage of Maplytics, the popular geo-mapping tool that integrates Dynamics CRM with Maps!
Maplytics plots Dynamics 365 CRM data on Bing maps. But more importantly, it gives Paul the flexibility to use the plot function to view entities based on location, region, manually drawn shapes, territories defined, and saved templates. Not only can Paul perform strategic analysis, but also take advantage of search features such as Concentric Proximity/Radius Search based on defined distance/time. Paul saves time by plotting saved templates directly and can also drag/resize the data grid to view a specific proportion of the map.
Is it possible to conduct a Regional Analysis of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM data?
During his run-through of the blogs on Maplytics, Paul realized, for the maps in Dynamics 365, data based on City, State, County, Postal/Zip Code, Postal Code Sector, Country, etc. can be plotted. As Maplytics provides seamless map integration of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM records with Bing Maps the users get to plot Dynamics 365 CRM entity records based on geographies. Users can also see the summary of data spread in the Summary Card by clicking on any region of choice. Paul was amazed to know that the attributes could also be displayed on Summary Card and could be customized.
