Activating AlignMix

In this video you will learn how to activate AlignMix. If this is the first time you are using AlignMix then this is the first video to watch. After you download and install AlignMix you will be asked for an activation code.

Simply click the email button that appears when you load the software. The AlignMix team will then send you an activation code that you can then copy and paste into that pop up. This will activate AlignMix on your computer.

If you have applied for the Pro trial, then you will have full use of the Pro version for two weeks, after the trial is up the software will downgrade to the free version of AlignMix. The free version of AlignMix has all of the tools and features of the Pro version but with some limited functionality. If you have just purchased the Pro version, the activation code will activate the Pro version on your computer for a full year.

Changing the Default Geography

Changing the Default Geography in AlignMix can be done in just a few clicks. You first need some international maps. To download the free AlignMix maps visit the AlignMix international page. Then you simply start a new sales territory design project and select the new geography from the drop down menu and then click make default.

Creating County Based Sales Territories

Using AlignMix you can create ZIP-Code or County Based Sales territories. In order to create a county based sales territory design you first need to make sure that you have FIPS codes for all of your counties. FIPS codes are 5 digit unique identifiers for each county.

Without that you wouldn’t be able to locate counties accurately. Just think of how many “Orange” counties exist in the USA. This is why you need this 5 digit FIPS code for a county based territory alignment.

Watch the video above to learn how to set up a county based AlignMix file and also how to import your county data.

Creating County Based Sales Territory Alignments

AlignMix will default to creating sales territories by 5 digit zip code. But what if you are only interested in creating county based sales territories? Well, in just a few clicks you can change the base geography in AlignMix and also set it as the default setting for future county based territory maps.

Simply open AlignMix and then click on new. From the drop down menu you can now select the base geography you want to use for your new sales territory map.

New Global Dataset Update

AlignMix has gone global! We’re excited to announce the release of the new Countries of the World dataset for Pro users of AlignMix.
