"We couldn't have built Geopointe without Google Maps. The ability to easily geocode location data is crucial to our product, and Google does that better than anyone in the world."

Challenge

Launched in 2010, Geopointe is B2B software focused on helping sales & marketing professionals make the most of their Salesforce data with insights gained from maps and applied geographical informational systems. From the very beginning, Geopointe knew it would need a mapping platform that offered an easy-to-use interface and robust geocoding capabilities. Specifically, the team looked for a tool that would intelligently translate users' addresses into precise coordinates.

Solution

Geopointe helps companies map their Salesforce database to visualize location information, gain spatial insights and boost productivity—all from within the Salesforce application. For example, a salesperson on the road can connect to the application on her mobile device and view, on a Google Map, all of her highly rated accounts that are within a 30-mile radius of where she’s standing. She can then get directions between these locations to plan her meetings and make most efficient use of her time. In order to help its customers visualize their clients' locations and the most efficient route between them, Geopointe uses the Google Maps Geocoding API to translate addresses in Salesforce into precise, mappable coordinates. By providing informed time estimates and directions, the Google Maps Directions API and Google Maps Distance Matrix API help Geopointe customers reach their clients in as little time as possible.
