TTG is a developer and provider of business mapping software for sales and marketing analysis, territory design and optimization. The company was an early pioneer in the design of Windows based mapping software targeted to businesses in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Its highly acclaimed first generation software products (Territory Planner and STARmanager) were instrumental in defining the product category and quickly became the mapping software of choice for corporate use. Today, with the combination of the AlignStar© product line for professional sales territory design and the Territory Mapper product line for smaller companies and simpler applications, TTG has continued to forge new ground in designing state of the art software to support field force deployment and realignment applications. In addition to software tools, the company offers a variety of services including geocoding, training, support, map production, demographic and business data and up-to-date US 5-Digit ZIP Code Map Data.

Our flagship alignment product, AlignStar is built from the ground up to handle the most complex and sophisticated alignment challenges. AlignStar is a revolutionary tool developed specifically to help sales managers quickly and easily maximize the effectiveness of their field sales force. AlignStar is driven by TTG’ s proprietary Intelligent Optimization Engine, which incorporates powerful algorithms that have been designed to rapidly create balanced and travel efficient territories. The Territory Optimization features offered by AlignStar make it the ideal tool for managers with direct field sales personnel, as well as for those overseeing distributors, resellers, service personnel or franchisees.

TTG combines the power of the desktop computer with the most recent innovations in cloud based applications, software design and optimization algorithms. All of these technologies come together in AlignStar© bringing you unprecedented control over your field territories by allowing you to perform spatial analysis, territory design, realignment and optimization with minimal training or experience. We empower you to make the right critical decisions to move your business ahead of the competition, minimize costs and improve the effectiveness of your sales force.

Right out of the box, AlignStar includes functionality which is simply not available in other mapping products. Most importantly, AlignStar solves business problems in a fraction of the time that generic mapping products require, and further, it is capable of solving problems that most GIS systems cannot solve at all.
