I am looking to create a lookup of accounts based on the location of another account. I want to do this for when I set an appointment at one to easily see who else is in the area to look for more meetings. It also would be helpful if I end up with extra time in an area and want to stop by and see some people.
I cover a 10 state area and the way I am doing it today is setting the appointment and then looking up the state I set it in and narrowing the lookup based on area code. In a state like SD this is a pain because they have such a large geographic area in one area code and is a pain in a state like FL because there are so many area codes and I forget where some are located.
I found a great tool at http://www.batchgeo.com/ which maps the contacts but I am not able to select the contacts in the region of the map I want to work with and then create that look-up in ACT. Any tools out there that would do what I am looking for? I have worked with Mappoint 2002 some but do not believe this does the look up back in ACT once you have the contacts on the map.
I am using ACT 2010 Premium on a Windows 7 machine.
