    Central Banking

    As a technology or data manager working within central banking you will probably recognise the term “Big Data”, as many similar organisations are compiling large data sets for analysis. Mapsimise can add a range of tools for visualisation to the technology mix through connected systems. Using data sets that relate to financial data, commercial entities, administrative data and social media are commonplace. Most organisations may have in-house developed systems that are bespoke. As an organisation you might use Excel or have datasets in CSV format. You may also use commercial solutions like Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics or have other solutions that are industry specific. From the latest Big Data survey in central banking, bespoke and commercial systems are commonplace, and Mapsimise as a connected data platform can support connections to most data sources. Mapsimise can.

    Import and Plot your Business Data on Maps

    Prepare your address-based business data, and let Mapsimise do the hard work of plotting it on a map. Be it contact locations, assets, properties, store locations, appointments - anything that has an address can be visualised on a map.

    Import your .CSV or .XLSX files from Excel, and tell Mapsimise which columns to use as address fields. We then do the hard work of converting the addresses to global locations so that you can see where in the world you are doing business

    If your data already has latitude/longitude co-ordinates no worries! Mapsimise respects your pre-geocoded data and will automatically plot it for you.

    Connect and Map Live Data from your CRM System

    Already managing your accounts, contacts and leads with an online CRM system? Mapsimise can connect to Dynamics 365, Salesforce, and Sugar CRM and display your live data on maps.

    There's no lengthy importing/exporting or synchronisation of records to get up and running with maps. Mapsimise enriches your data with latitude/longitude co-ordinates, or respects your already geocoded data.

    Visualise your business entities on a map, and open records in your connected CRM. Perform spatial queries on your data and push results back into CRM marketing lists/campaigns.

    Draw Shapes to Filter your Data

    Use Mapsimise's drawing tools to perform spatial queries on your data. From a simple box to an entire outline of a territory, it's easy to filter your data based on distance and area. No more guesswork using postal codes or area names! Combine shapes to create complex filters.

    Use widely-available KML files containing predefined shapes such as state and postal code boundaries, countries, school catchment areas and more to narrow down your queries.

    Examples of spatial filters made simple with Mapsimise:

    • Find all my customers within 5 miles of

    • List all my properties within half a mile of

    • Give me all assets located in or

    Analyse your Data with Charts

    Add charts to your map to get an at-a-glance analysis of your spatial data

    Similar to building charts in Excel, simply designate columns from your Mapsimise data grid as axis for your chart. Values can be shown as a count (for example: count of records by gender) or by sum (for example: totalling opportunity value over x months).

    As you move around the map or draw shapes to filter your data, the charts update dynamically. Choose from an array of colour schemes to add a personal touch to your mapped data presentation, and then save the chart in a map view ready to share with your team or the world!

    Collaborative Team Working with Mapsimise

    Manage data and access security roles with Mapsimise

    Mapsimise makes working with maps a collaborative and flexible experience. Set up a map with multiple layers of connected or imported data, then all team members can create unlimited views against that map. All shapes, data filters, KML regions, routes and visual themes/effects are saved in a view.

    Share your map views with other team members, either as view-only or with edit permissions. Add notes to the map to highlight points of interest to your team.

    Share your maps with the world by making map views publicly available via links or website embedding.

    Calculate and Optimise Driving Routes

    Combine your business data with the power of Google Maps to plan driving routes between appointments, salesperson meetings, deliveries - in fact, anything with a start time and a location!

    Mapsimise takes routing further with fully adjustable visit start times and durations for each leg of your itinerary. Re-order visits by dragging and dropping.

    Auto-routing lets you take a selection of filtered records and plot them automatically, optimising by route or respecting the start times from your dataset - allowing you to best-fit your appointments or deliveries to a route and a schedule.

    Search Business Data

    Mapsimise allows you to search worldwide for arbitrary locations by postal code, street name, city, points of interest and more. You can add these locations to a driving route, or create a filter from them (for example: all my customers within 10 miles of LaGuardia)

    We've also leveraged the power of Google Business search to put the details of millions of businesses at your fingertips. Need to find a restaurant or hotel while planning a salesperson's itinerary? Or be able to recommend locations nearby to an existing customer? Your users can find what they need without leaving the Mapsimise interface.

    Targeted Marketing with Mapsimise

    Harness the power of Mapsimise's spatial filtering to enhance your mailing lists. Connect to leading digital marketing platforms such as Dotdigital and Mailchimp to send marketing materials to contacts you have identified using the Mapsimise toolset.

    If you've already built your marketing workflow in your connected CRM system, you can push your filtered records back into Dynamics 365 Marketing Lists, Salesforce Campaigns, and SugarCRM Target Lists at the click of a button.

    Use Data Filters to Refine your Maps

    Before you can work with your data spatially, it's important to make sure you're working with the correct subset of data, especially when dealing with tens of thousands of records.

    Mapsimise has a powerful query builder that lets you filter on names, dates, numbers, yes/no fields and more. Use AND and OR groupings to build complex queries.

    If you need to use a particular query frequently, Mapsimise lets you set up Quick Filters that are always displayed at the top of your map. For example: a date range for displaying appointments, or a dropdown of types of customer.

    Use Pin Variations to change the icon, shape, and colour of your map markers according to fields on your data. For example: colour-coding your global opportunities by closure probability.

    Geospatially Analyse your Data

    Use clustering to help visualise where you have large collections of data by grouping markers together. Analyse this further by using heatmaps, which provide a striking visualisation of the spatial weighting of your data.

    Proximity filtering gives you the ability to compare distances between two of your data layers. Mapsimise provides several options to help visualise the proximity of records.

    Some examples of proximity filtering:

    • Show customers within 10km of my stores

    • Which gas stations are closest to which depots?

    • Which engineers are closest to my current callouts?

    Location Intelligence (LI)

    Location intelligence (LI), or spatial intelligence, is the process of deriving meaningful insight from geospatial data relationships to solve a particular problem.

    Explore Mapsimise Themes

    Mapsimise has a selection of more than ten map styles to help enhance the experience of your users and customers. Amongst the available styles are dark maps for light sensitive conditions, as well as themes that cater for colour blindness. This screenshot reel shows just a few of the available map styles.

    Mapsimise UI

    The Mapsimise user interface has been designed to cater for its numerous functions and features without taking focus away from what's most important - your data on a map.

    Out of the box, Mapsimise gives the user a selection of two UI themes: Dark and Light. The Light theme is more traditional, while the Dark theme brings a modern look and helps reduce eyestrain through prolonged use.

    Mapsimise uses cutting-edge web standards to make the app available on desktop and mobile devices, so you can map your data wherever you are.

    How we use layers to map your data

    Mapsimise uses a layering system to merge data from different sources onto your maps. We then underlay regions from KML files and overlay your planned routes to bring all of the functionality together.

    • Plan routes for field operatives

      Plan routes between entities manually or automatically, then see the route overlaid on your data.

    • Connect and plot business data

      Every business entity you want to see on a map has its own layer. You can set up as many data layers as your need, and re-order them to show business-critical entities on top.

    • Use KML regions to filter and augment your data

      Import KML files to display regions and placemarks on the map alongside your data. Manage territories by filtering your data by selected regions.

    • Powered by Google Maps

      Mapsimise is built on top of the best-in-class Google Maps interface, providing familiarity for your users and allowing Mapsimise to leverage theming and Street View.

    How our map embedding works

    Mapsimise allows you to embed your customised maps into your website, intranet, or business web applications. You can also share maps internally and publicly via clickable links. Each shared map has a range of options to customise its look and feel. See some embedded map examples below, all using live data from our Mapsimise demo.
