Salesforce Maps or Veloxy: Which is the Better Maps App?

Now that field sales is making a comeback post-Covid, road warriors are clamoring for a better way to mobilize and visualize their Salesforce data.

Making up for lost time and revenue is no easy task. So what’s the solution? Sales managers are looking to empower their field teams with MORE sales technology than ever before.

In this year’s State of Field Sales Report, more than half of the solutions that are being deployed to sales reps are making Salesforce data MORE actionable on smartphones:

  • Route optimizers (12% of field teams)
  • Geolocation lead finders (18% of field teams)
  • Mobile Salesforce visualization (18% of field teams)
  • Geolocation sales intelligence (11% of field teams)

One sales solution that can centralize these technologies is Salesforce mapping.

Salesforce map apps are tools that organize, visualize, and extend location intelligence to your smartphone—making your data more accessible and actionable on the road.

But like most sales technologies, not all salesforce map apps are created equal.

That’s why this post is going to compare two of the most advanced Salesforce map apps: Salesforce Maps and Veloxy.

Improve Sales Efficiency Now

You're two clicks away from visualizing and acting-on your Salesforce location intelligence.

What is Salesforce Maps?

It should come as no surprise that Salesforce has a native solution for location intelligence and field sales mapping—Salesforce Maps.

Salesforce Maps helps sales managers better organize and understand their sales intelligence on a geographic level. Managers can optimize territory management and prioritize field rep travel plans to shorten the sales cycle.

But what are the most popular features according to Salesforce Maps users?

Salesforce Map's Best Features & Testimonials

Here are the most popular features of Salesforce Maps along with a corresponding testimonial:

Territory Planning: Visualize your account location intelligence to optimize territory assignments—eliminating the need for spreadsheets.

  • “We use Salesforce Maps for territory management and visualizations. It also helps solve strategic questions around where to hold events and different concentrations of customers.”

Route PlanningCreate sales routes in a way that maximizes field sales efficiency and field productivity.

  • “We have had the capacity to make proficient and powerful route management accordingly improving consumer loyalty and benefit at a lesser time interim.”

Delivery & Rep Tracking: Better manage the customer experience with real-time visibility into customer visits, deliveries, and rep location.

  • “This (Salesforce Maps) is a great product for following your equipment around and makes it easy to track.”

Pros and Cons of Salesforce Maps

No two solutions are alike, and this is especially true for sales map apps. Let’s look at the top three pros and cons of Salesforce Maps.

  • After acquiring MapAnything in 2019, Salesforce has gone a long way to give Salesforce Maps a native integration and interface, both on desktop and mobile.
  • Go beyond zip codes when planning territories. Salesforce Maps allows you to visualize a location’s revenue potential alongside its account and contact count.
  • Step back and view everything from a sales map dashboard. Drill down into daily visits, travel time, field actions to close, and more.


  • Caters more to micro-managers who want to plan everything more than field salespeople who want the freedom to manage the customer experience.
  • Field sales reps cannot automate all of their non-selling activity from the mobile Salesforce maps app. This limits their time savings compared to managers.
  • The cost and time required to maximize its mapping capabilities is two to three times as much as other Salesforce mapping applications.

Salesforce Maps Pricing

Since Salesforce acquired MapAnything, users have hoped for its mapping features to be built into the standard CRM product. To no avail. Salesforce customers have to purchase Salesforce Maps as they would any other Sales or Marketing cloud product.


  • Basic Salesforce Maps is $75 per user, per month (billed annually)
  • Advanced Salesforce Maps is $125 per user, per month (billed annually)

Add-on Pricing

  • Territory Planning is $75 per user, per month (billed annually)
  • Live Tracking is $25 per user, per month (billed annually)

Don’t forget about considering future growth. If you’re already spending $75 to $300 per Salesforce license, how long will it take you to receive a return on your potential $150 to $525 investment in your Salesforce + Salesforce Maps pairing?

How to Choose a Sales Mapping Solution

Whether you’re a sales manager or a field rep, there is one key factor to take into consideration before choosing a Salesforce mapping solution.

Who is the prime beneficiary of the map app—the manager or the sales reps?

This is similar to the chicken and egg question. If you’re a micro-manager, you may prefer optimizing everything for your reps beforehand and watching it run its course.

Or, if you’re a micro collaborator, you’d prefer empowering your field team to make the right decisions with the right technology.

Salesforce Maps advocates are made up of the former, sales managers who like to keep their hands on the geers and only extend certain features to their field team.

Veloxy advocates are the latter, field reps who are invested in owning and optimizing the customer experience and their pipeline while also collaboratively working with sales managers.


Once you narrow down your list, be sure to have your reps perform user testing during free trials, and read the reviews on software review sites like G2 and Capterra.

Start Mapping Your Way to More Revenue!
