Maptitude is a robust and easy-to-use professional franchise mapping tool. Maptitude provides all the features that your organization requires in order to take advantage of the geographic elements underpinning successful franchise territory and site location decisions.
Maptitude costs only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution, shipping with all the tools and data required to investigate potential and existing franchise site performance, while supporting sound business planning for both franchisors and franchisees.
Maptitude makes it easy to use maps to analyze and understand the best locations for franchise site selection. Maptitude is a powerful combination of site mapping software and geographic data that provides everything that you need to make informed decisions.
In addition to the latest demographics, Maptitude includes substantial social, housing, and income data, along with easy-to-use analysis tools that will allow you to better understand the relationships between your demand, supply, and competitor locations.
For example, the Maptitude USA Data Package includes extensive business listing locations, disposable income, detailed population characteristics, and the numbers of businesses by type, employees, and payroll for every ZIP Code in the country. These data provide a complete framework for establishing new franchises.
Maptitude allocates franchises to achieve sustainable revenue generating territories, and can minimize competition or cannibalization as well as integrating many other factors into the decision process based on the user’s preferences.
“Maptitude just works! We now build our franchise territories with ease. Our organization has benefited from our ability to strategically plan out prospective territories, gauge market penetration of our active franchise territories, and begin to identify what our top performing territories have in common.”
Example: One of the big issues you face, especially if you are in the franchise industry, is providing fair and balanced "protected" territories. You want to maximize market potential while avoiding cannibalizing the sales of an existing location. But you may also need to establish such boundaries clearly, to adhere to the legalities of a sales or franchise agreement. Maptitude allows you to track and balance as many territory characteristics as you want, allowing you to better establish, justify, and defend profitable territories.
Maptitude franchise territory mapping software gives you a suite of tools for creating franchise territories and includes extensive demographics, consumer segmentation data, and address/postal geocoding and validation.
Often a territory is an area that is made up of several smaller areas merged together. For example, franchise territories might be made up of groups of postal zones, neighborhoods, or other regions. Maptitude can build the franchise territories for you and compute the attributes and demographics of each one, helping you decide where to expand a retail franchise business.
You can use Maptitude to create franchise territories based on a table or Excel spreadsheet of data; interactively by clicking on features in a map such as postal areas; or manually by drawing whatever boundary lines you require using the Maptitude editing tools. It is also possible to create franchise territories based on streets or overlapping franchise territories that define exclusive or non-exclusive markets. Your franchise territories can be stored natively in Maptitude or in formats including Shapefile, Oracle Spatial, or SQL Server Spatial.
Unlike many other mapping and GIS software packages that require users to purchase data separately, Maptitude includes extensive geographic and demographic data so that you can get started developing franchise territories as soon as you install the software.
In addition, the Franchise Clique blog recognizes Maptitude as a global solution, saying “[the] international capabilities make Maptitude a great option for franchisors expanding into [international] territories.” Maptitude ships with one country of your choice (see complete list), and when you are looking to explore markets such as the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia, additional Country Packages can be purchased separately.
Maptitude starts at only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution. Maptitude remains the most competitively priced professional franchise territory software available and is unique in the marketplace for the provision of comprehensive data and functionality in a single product for a single low price.

“Want to know whether a certain franchise is really a good opportunity in your area, you could profit from a type of software known as a GIS, or geographic information system. Unfortunately, GIS software...has been rather hard to use, and the demographic data needed to make it worthwhile has often been frightfully expensive. That is now changing [with] Maptitude.”
