Imagine your Sales representative Tony is on field attending to scheduled appointments. Luckily, he winds up a meeting beforehand and has spare time at his disposal. To expedite the business, he decides to look for availability of customers to fix an appointment, attend it, and return to follow the schedule. He performs Radius/Proximity search on his Current location for the given distance. This enables him to picture Dynamics 365 CRM data using Maplytics by either distance/time.
Radius search allows filtering records within a given Proximity/Radius in a circumference around current location. Tony can search the records in Dynamics 365 CRM data by category ‘expected revenue’ in proximity of two miles by using Radius search. This will plot data within the radius sorted by category. He can select the strongest prospect from categorized data. However, let’s consider a scenario where there is no potential customer within the given range. How will he resolve this issue?
In such case, he can explore further by doing Concentric Proximity Search on Dynamics 365 CRM data. Using this feature, he can plot up to three radii and search the customer with maximum ‘expected revenue.’ Concentric proximity highlights the data zone in distinct colors for different radii. To view the distance of various records from current location Tony needs to hover over the pushpin. This enables him to do relative analysis of Dynamics CRM data and choose the area with maximum revenue and minimum distance.
