How to Map Employee Locations

Site Selection: How to Choose the Right Business Location

If you run a business where employees are required to come into the office or facility regularly, you know that location, as they say, is everything.

And if you have ever had to pick a new office location, one of the biggest factors to consider is how the move will impact your workforce. There are both human factors to consider and important information with financial and business implications.

Will the new location increase your employees’ commute time and add extra expenses for gas and tolls? Will it make it easier to drop off and pick up their kids from the local public schools? Will it help your sales team get to clients’ facilities faster?

Thankfully, taking all those factors, and more, into account can be done by using a mapping software like Maptive. With it, you can easily enter your employees’ addresses, and then visualize them on a map or plan for future office site selection.

Why Maptive

  • Customization. One of the added benefits of using Maptive is that after you’ve created a map showing the location of your employees’ residences, you can also customize how the resulting visualization looks and add any further information you need.For example, you can use your company logo as a marker, color-code areas on the map by drawing your own boundaries, set specific radii around your locations, and so much more.
  • Advanced Features. Maptive also offers advanced map visualization features that allow you to analyze complex patterns in your data. This can help you gain insights into where potential office locations should be and how they will affect your workforce.For example, suppose you end up choosing a more remote location because it makes the most business sense for your supply chain and logistics routes. In that case, you might want to create new commuter benefit programs, provide company shuttles from the nearest city center, and even create a company-paid cafeteria or rent food trucks.
  • Detailed Data. So many factors go into making decisions regarding the locations of offices, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities–so why limit yourself to your office locations and the location of your employees. With Maptive, you can layer in location info of amenities in the area that might be extremely important to your employees, such as gyms, parking, public schools, and even medical facilities. But you can also filter for freight transportation routes, see how proximity to other competitors might affect business, and find new areas of opportunity to expand into.

Overall, Maptive mapping software is an excellent way to map out employee locations and plan for future office site selection. With our powerful map-making features, advanced map visualization, and detailed location info, you can easily make informed decisions that best fit the needs of your business.

What Else Can You Do with Maptive?

Drive Time Maps

With Maptive, you can generate drive time maps to calculate the maximum distance an employee can travel within a certain amount of time. Maptive’s Drive Time Map tool is continuously synced with Google Maps, so you can analyze road networks and traffic to build an accurate map around your office or facility. This can also help businesses plan for office sites that are located in areas where employees can easily commute.

Travel Time Maps

Radius Maps

As you consider new locations or evaluate the worthiness of your current office, you might want to visualize your business’ operating area or run a proximity analysis on a segment of your location data. Both of those can be done within Maptive because, unlike other software, Maptive’s Radius Map tool allows users to create as many radius circles as they want and to fully customize their visual appearance.

Territory Drawing

You can also support your revenue growth with relevant territory maps that are based on your data and powered by Maptive’s AI algorithm. This feature is perhaps less related to each individual employee, but important for business outcomes. You can avoid the guesswork of splitting up territories by assigning accounts to salespeople based on defined metrics, such as sales numbers, geographical boundaries, and market size. When you add an employee’s address into the data displayed, you can also determine whether they would be the right person for that account, or if it would be more efficient to assign it to one of their colleagues.
