BOUNDARIES

We all know what boundaries are – they are lines that mark the limits of an area.   When you think local, boundaries become very important.  How local do you want to get?  By zip code?  By neighborhood?  By block?  The more robust your boundaries, the more flexibility you have to create products that resonate and engage consumers.  Onboard uses Maponics boundaries, the industry standard, which gives you almost limitless options when it comes to creating a compelling product or services.

Onboard’s Boundary products cover over 40,000 neighborhoods, 445,000 residential subdivisions and 500 Metros.
