2011B ZIP Codes Available Now
TTG announces the release of Territory Mapper 2011B ZIP
The US 5-Digit ZIP Code boundaries change at a rapid
pace. Many people are not aware of the fact that US ZIP Code boundaries
are different than the simple roster or listing that the US Postal
Service (USPS) maintains. The USPS does not create or market the
boundaries for the 5-digit ZIP Codes. In fact, they are forced to
purchase them from third party providers just like any other business.
Out of date ZIP Code maps can result in lost information, missing data,
poor decisions and costly mistakes! We offer fresh, updated ZIP Code
files every 3 months at an affordable price. Of course, all updates are
optional and the file you have will continue to work for you until you
are ready to refresh your data.
The new US 5-Digit ZIP Code add-on is available as a download from the Territory
Mapper website for the low price of only $199. A registered
version of Territory Mapper is required to use the new US 5-Digit ZIP
Code map file.
