Top 5 reasons to use Bing Maps
Maps SDK for Android and iOS
SDKs for Android and iOS to integrate fully featured map controls into mobile applications including positioning, 3D mapping (3D Native support from Windows UWP control) and voice guided turn by turn navigation, with a consistent look and feel across web, Windows, and mobile.
You can add to both road and aerial views with worldwide 3D elevation data employing the Digital Elevation Model. You can also add content to road maps with symbolic 3D building. If 3D is not necessary for your scenario, the SDK supports a standard Web Mercator projection.
Routing for deliveries
Automate schedules for multiple field teams and optimise their routes across multiple destinations for improved performance including last mile.
Track and monitor your fleet of vehicles, food delivery services, shipping containers, or mobile workforce in real time on a map to improve performance and customer service.
Retail and eCommerce
Identify new retail locations based on demographics, warehouse and public transport locations. eCommerce sites use store locators, and validate customer addresses with geocoding.
Visualise sales results and other KPIs by location and analyse demographics, competitor analysis, and sales trends. Use custom thematic maps to build contextually relevant applications.

What our customers say
We were seeking a provider of low-cost imagery of sufficient quality to ensure that 1Streetworks users could use it to visualise a location where a traffic management plan is required. This helps users to identify real-world features that might impact the resulting plan, and which are otherwise not included in non-imagery base maps. Grey Matter's expertise in Microsoft Bing Maps products ensured a quick, easy, and successful result!
