Your Sales Career at PolicyMap will be Different from other SaaS Platforms!

PolicyMap stands out from other SaaS (Software as a Service) platforms due to its specific focus on providing online mapping tools and data for government, commercial, non-profit, and academic institutions to access valuable information about communities and markets across the United States. Here are some key aspects that differentiate PolicyMap from other SaaS platforms:

  • Data-Centric Approach: PolicyMap is primarily data-centric, offering a wide range of data sets that allow users to conduct in-depth research, market studies, business planning, site selection, grant applications, and impact analysis. It goes beyond typical SaaS solutions that may provide specific software features or tools, by delivering comprehensive datasets that empower users to make informed decisions.
  • Community and Market Mapping: PolicyMap specializes in providing mapping tools and visualization capabilities to analyze and understand demographic, economic, housing, education, health, and other critical data for communities and markets. This focus on geographic mapping sets it apart from more generalized SaaS applications.
  • Impact-Driven Approach: As a Benefit Corporation, PolicyMap is driven by a strong belief in the power of data to positively impact communities and markets. This purpose-driven approach distinguishes it from conventional SaaS providers that may not have a specific social or community-oriented mission.
  • Extensive Customer Base: PolicyMap serves a diverse array of customers, including federal, state, and local government agencies, major universities, non-profit organizations, and commercial firms, particularly in the healthcare sector. Its extensive and varied customer base showcases its relevance and adaptability across multiple sectors.
  • Benefit Corporation Status: As a Benefit Corporation, PolicyMap adheres to higher standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This sets it apart from conventional SaaS companies that may focus solely on profit without a specific commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

Overall, PolicyMap’s emphasis on data-driven decision-making, targeted industry focus, and commitment to driving positive impact through data make it distinct from other SaaS platforms in the market. Its data-rich platform and specialized mapping capabilities cater to a unique set of customers and industries, making it a valuable resource for organizations seeking comprehensive geographic insights.
