One of the best ways to build a strong reputation is to establish an efficient supply chain. This ensures customers receive their products quickly and efficiently, leading to a positive buying experience.
Unfortunately, creating an effective supply chain is easier said than done. And with so many suppliers, people, and entities involved, it’s difficult to determine the areas that are underperforming.
Wouldn’t it be easier if you could visualize your entire supply chain, identify and improve inefficiencies, and determine the quickest routes to make sure customers are receiving their products in as little time as possible?
With Maptive, you can do all of these things and more.
Our logistics mapping software lets you plot all the locations involved in your operation, spot the weakest links in your network, and find the quickest route between multiple locations. Now it’s easier than ever to build the supply chain you’ve always dreamed of and start providing a greater level of service to your customers.

Achieve Your Goals with Maptive’s Logistics Mapping Software
Maptive allows you to take all of your supply chain data from multiple spreadsheets and plot it on an interactive geographical map.
Here are a few ways Maptive helps you achieve your goals:
Visualize your entire supply chain by plotting all the key locations, such as your suppliers and store locations, on your map. You can utilize color-coded pins to indicate what type of location they represent and include a variety of information for each location, such as the products they supply you with, hours of operation, and key people.
This view helps you spot potential issues and cost-saving opportunities that you may not have otherwise noticed. It will also make it easier to perform risk analysis and develop contingency plans for service interruptions, delays, and other unexpected problems.
Within your supply chain, you have multiple people, suppliers, transportation services, and other entities. How can you remove all the noise and zero in on the information you’re looking for?
Maptive’s filter tool gives you the option to pick and choose which data is displayed on your map. This is critical when you’re trying to identify a potential problem or are looking to optimize one key area of your supply chain.
Optimizing the routes you take between the various points in your supply chain not only gets your products to your customers faster, but it also saves you money by burning less fuel and reducing your labor costs.
It used to be that determining the quickest route was guesswork, but Maptive’s integration with Google Maps makes it easy to optimize your transportation. Our supply chain software can find the most efficient route between as many as 25 different locations.
