As I have previously discussed, Estate Map is a cloud-based estate planning tool that was launched 10 months ago, and among other uses functions as information storage. Estate Map will be shutting down the end of May. Customers have until May 31, 2014 to retrieve any information they need from their accounts before the information becomes inaccessible on June 1, 2014.
The founder of Estate Map, Joe Henderson, attributed the shutdown to the chosen target market. Henderson plans to replace Estate Map with Navigatr, which will work similar to Estate Map, but instead of targeting lawyers it will directly target consumers as their client base.
