As part of the team behind MapDotNet, a formidable ArcGIS competitor, I helped build and maintain the tremendously succesful EasyTerritory SaaS platform before branching off into my own company in 2016.
What is EasyTerritory?
EasyTerritory is a mapping application for territory management and spatial business intelligence which seamlessly synchronizes to Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
What does it do?
Features of EasyTerritory include:
- Builds territories from zip codes, counties, states and other political boundaries
- Provides business intelligence through spatial queries and updates
- Computes optimal sales routes in seconds
- Allows collaboration across desktop and mobile devices
- Optionally syncs data to CRM
What technology was it built on?
EasyTerritory runs on a Microsoft server stack, including SQL Server, .NET, and WCF. The EasyTerritory client is built on Durandal in TypeScript.
What as my role in the project?
As part of the EasyTerritory team my responsibilities included:
- Providing support for the rest of the team on best practices for Durandal, Knockout, Grunt and other tools
- Refactoring and rearchitecting certain portions of the client application
- Implementing both internal and customer requested features on both the client and the server
- Performing deployments, initial set up, and on-going maintenance for many customers
Though there is no public facing version of the application, you can view a short demo video below. At the time of writing, the EasyTerritory team is setting interested customers up with free trial accounts.
