EasyTerritory vs. MapPoint Feature Comparison

Create territories

  • Territory creation is what EasyTerritory was built for! EasyTerritory supports building territories for existing geographic features such as zip codes, counties, states, or countries. Additionally, users can draw (digitize) ad hoc territory boundaries on the map. The advanced territory editing capabilities include support for snapping, stitching, welding and clipping. EasyTerritory’s territory management capabilities seamlessly integrate with Dynamics CRM through plugins and the Dynamics CRM SDK.

Business analysis and Geospatial BI

  • EasyTerritory includes rich thematic mapping for business data created in Dynamics CRM or stored in SQL Server (2008, 2012, 2014, Azure). Popular visualization techniques like hotspots, clusters and thematic maps are out-of-the-box functionality of EasyTerritory.

Find Addresses/Geocoding

  • EasyTerritory supports address lookup and geocoding through integration with the Bing Maps REST Services. Within the EasyTerritory application users can perform an address lookup and zoom to the location on the map.

Create routes

  • EasyTerritory supports route stop creation through integration with address records store in Dynamics CRM or SQL Server.

Multi-stop routing

  • EasyTerritory currently supports route stop optimization based on tour or circuits paths. Optimized waypoints can optionally be submitted to the Bing Maps routing service to draw the actual driving route on the map.

Fleet management

  • Combined with Dynamics CRM, EasyTerritory provides a complete, robust and easily extensible fleet, asset or customer relationship management solution.

Data mapping

  • With Microsoft SQL Server’s spatial capabilities, users can store and map any type of spatial information (points, lines and polygons). EasyTerritory includes a workbench utility for importing common geospatial formats such as Esri Shapefiles, MapInfo TAB files, Google KML, Esri ArcSDE and Oracle Spatial directly into SQL Server. This data can be classified and stylized on the map.

Offline/unconnected maps

  • EasyTerritory differs from MapPoint in the fact that it is not desktop software. EasyTerritory is a web application that can be hosted on your organization’s Windows Server or by EasyTerritory.com in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Data provided is available as an online service or as a SQL backup file. EasyTerritory is written in HTML5 so it works great on tablets such as a Microsoft Surface or an iPad.

GPS guidance (turn-by-turn)

  • Yes! EasyTerritory allows you to create mobile views of your data so that users can quickly launch their phone’s native mapping application. Let Siri tell you how to get there!
