Does anyone use badger maps?

Does anyone use this program. I use Clip software and Mappoint has been discontinued. So no map updates. What I plan to do is upload my customers to excel and use badger maps for routing. Any suggestions would be great.

Just FYI we are working on another routing solution for CLIPxe (our online version -CLIPitc- uses a different routing software right now - it never used MapPoint). Depending on your area, if you find a 2014 copy of Mappoint, it may be able to last until the new routing is in place. Many of our customers are finding really inexpensive copies on places like Ebay and Craigslist. That might be easier than working with exporting and so forth and Mappoint offers more features to CLIPxe than just routing that are useful.

Another option would be to use Mappoint with CLIPxe for this year and switch over to CLIPitc next year. You could switch now, although it doesn't have a few of the features CLIPxe has so we would need to make sure you aren't using anything CLIPitc doesn't have. By next year it should be up to the same level.

Hope that helps! I'd hate for you to go through the hassle of setting up a new system if you didn't have to.

Thanks Cherish. I like ClipXe a ton. Exporting to a excel file was cake. I then uploaded it to badger maps easily. I will mess with badger then maybe go to ITC. I do have another month before i get really serious about lawncare.

Sounds good! I'm sorry we don't have the routing solution in place yet, but I'm glad you found something that might work for you right now. Hopefully others on Lawnsite will have more tips on how to use badger maps effectively!

It really isn't a problem. I rather use an all in one solution but this will work for now. It is rather easy but might be expensive. 30 bucks or more a month. Anyway thanks and i will check back in a few months to see when Xe will have a mapping solution. Thanks. might want to get hooked up with badger maps. Thanks again

Paul.
