Importing Data

Importing Data Into MapPoint

Importing Data Into AlignMix 2016

In this set of comparison videos you will learn how to import zip to territory data into Microsoft MapPoint (left video above) and into AlignMix 2016 (right video above). You will notice that there are zip codes that are not recognized in the MapPoint video and that is because the MapPoint software has not been updated since 2014. With constant changes occurring to postal codes in all of the 50 U.S. States its important that you have the most up to date zip code shapes for your sales territory design. If you have out of date zip code boundaries in your software then your overall territory design will also be out of date. With AlignMix 2016 zip code data is updated yearly for the free version and quarterly for the premium version. These updates basically guarantee that your sales territories will always be up to date.
