MapJam’s mapping tools go beyond just addresses to help customers and clients save time by helping them find specific features such as a free visitor parking lot, the right mall entrance, a coffee shop for a meeting, a stall at a busy market, or even the right street when there are several streets of the same name in cities and suburbs. Organizations and businesses that use MapJam can help members find a gathering place, a concert, a fundraiser, or the right sports playing field for a practice or away game.

They can pinpoint millions of addresses and billions of actual places to meet, from a corner, by a tree in a park, the finishing line, or a specific spot on a beach. They can then select from customizable templates to personalize each map.Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 10.21.50 AMOn top of their map they can add directions, opening hours, and helpful hints to make finding locations easier. There are also over 250 media types, from animated gifs to photos, videos, or music that can be added to the map to make the brand map distinctively fit a business or organization. Sharing is easy because MapJam allows clients to customize their very own short URL, making it memorable and relevant. They can then easily share the map over the phone, in a SMS, an email, on social media, website or print ad.
