The Enterprise license for Bing Maps API is for organizations that process a large amount of annual billable transactions. The Enterprise map license gives developers the power to scale their web and desktop apps with versatile solutions that utilize location data to enable businesses to do more. 

An enterprise-level license is also the cost-effective choice in the long run for many organizations, as it allows them to fine-tune your operations using features like the Fleet Tracking solution.
