|2011D ZIP Codes Available Now
TTG announces the release of Territory Mapper 2011D ZIP Codes
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Out of date ZIP Code maps can result in lost information, missing data, poor decisions and costly mistakes!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.
- Display over 41,000 current US 5-digit ZIP Codes in map form.
- Turn on 5-Digit ZIP Code numbers or names as labels on your maps.
- Search for 5-Digit ZIP Codes by name or number.

|Save Data Source|
In addition to exporting summary level data, Territory Mapper allows you to append hierarchy information (Territory, District, Region, and Area) to any linked data source. This feature can be useful for a variety of reasons. For example, you may want to update territory definitions on a linked customer or prospect file.
This feature is not technically an export so you will need to access it through the Data/Save Data Source command. Territory Mapper will never alter your linked data. This feature will append TDRA information to a COPY of your linked data source. For example, if you have linked to an Excel spreadsheet and want to append current TDRA information to the file, Territory Mapper will ask you for a new file name and will then add the new columns to this copy of your Excel spreadsheet containing the current sales hierarchy information.
