The number of outside sales reps who rely on Base has skyrocketed. We needed to give them tools to locate and view their customers on a map. Today, we’re excited to announce that this vision has come to fruition with Base Geolocation – and it’s free with all plans.

It started with one simple idea, to show you where your Contacts, Leads and Deals were on a map, and make it easier for you to reach them. With Base Geolocation, all you need to do is open your Leads, Contacts or Deals on your mobile device and switch to map view. From there, you’ll see a beautiful map with all of your sales data. Zoom out to get the big picture, zoom in to view more detail, and tap on any Contact, Lead or Deal to find the specifics or get driving directions.

Geolocation for Android phones and tablets is available now. iOS users don’t fret – Geolocation for iPhone and iPad is coming in just over a week.

Here are some cool features you can take advantage of with Base Geolocation:

One-touch Directions

We’ve all been there – it’s time to visit the customer, you know their general location, but was it “1107 Main street or 1017 Main street?” You start to search through your emails, pulling up the company website, whatever it takes to find the exact address. Wouldn’t it be easier if your phone just told you how to get there? One-touch directions from Base makes reaching your customers a breeze.

Visualize your sales territory

Visualizing your sales territory has never been easier. Are your customers concentrated in a single area or spread out across the city? Find out with Base Geolocation.

Base Geolocation also includes some great new filters that let you filter your Contacts, Leads or Deals by proximity. That means “Show me contacts within 25 miles of my location” is just a tap away. You’re also able to filter by Owner, Customer Type, Tags, Card Type (for contacts) and City.
