HOW DO THE R73 CHANGES AFFECT YOU?  

The data changes made within every update could have major implications when using Geoplan software for planning or analysis purposes. By ensuring the software is kept up to date, you can be confident in the accuracy of the relevant output, for example (but not limited to) the following:  


 

  • Accurate plotting of customer or prospect locations.
  • Efficient and up to date sales territory structures.
  • Accurate sales performance analysis.
  • Correct targeting of market resource.


By not updating Geoplan Postcode software, systems will quickly become out of date and accuracy of analysis / results may be compromised. We therefore recommend that you apply your update at the earliest opportunity.
