MarketSharp has incorporated MapQuest into the appointment scheduling process to make scheduling appointments more efficient, and salesperson’s time more productive. The scheduler provides travel distance (in miles) and drive time (drive time is the actual time in minutes) from one appointment to the next so call center staff can schedule the most efficient time.
