Obtaining the Google Maps Geocode API key for Contour

Before you can configure the Contour integration Google Maps Geocode provider, you must obtain the Google Maps API key.

Infor CRM recommends the Google Maps APIs Premium Plan for production environments which must be purchased through Google. Standard API keys are limited by Google to 2,500 total transactions per day, and therefore are only recommended for evaluation and testing environments. For more information see the Google documentation for Google Maps APIs Premium Plan customers.
