Press Release: March 18, 2016
uberall.com is one of the first partners to integrate the newly released Google My Business API and now uses it to update the profiles of Deutsche Telekom in real-time.
Berlin, March 18, 2016 – With their new API for Google My Business, Google sets a clear signal to take a closer look at the needs of local businesses and their representatives.
As one of the first partners, uberall.com has now access to Google's new API. It enables the Online Presence Management company to update Google Profiles of local businesses in real-time with the most up-to-date information – without the API, this is a costly process as edits have to be made step-by-step via a browser.
"We've been managing profiles on Google's platforms on behalf of our partners for 3 years now. And we're excited to now be able to lift this service to a completely new level!", says Florian Hübner, founder of uberall.com. "The close exchange with Google's team in Mountain View, California, has lead to us having access to the API already. We were able to give early feedback and the very friendly dialogue helps to continuously improve the functionality of the API."
In parallel to rolling out the integration of Google's new technology, uberall.com announced that they were able to win Germany's largest telco, Deutsche Telekom, as a new customer. The Berlin-based startup now manages all online profiles for Deutsche Telekom including search engines, online directories, social media platforms, and satellite navigation systems.
"We carefully evaluated all options in the market and decided to work with uberall.com", states Tilman Schlieper, responsible project manager for digital presence of the Telekom Shops for Telekom Deutschland GmbH. "It is important for us to work with a reliable partner that offers the latest Online Presence Management solution, which allows Deutsche Telekom to be amongst the first enterprises to update Google My Business in real-time. Additionally, uberall.com supports our profile management efforts, e.g., by updating old incorporations, finding duplicate profiles, and detecting inappropriate user generated content."

The Berlin based technology company connects online customers with local businesses. uberall.com offers a unique platform, which enables companies of all sizes to manage their online presence (contact info, opening hours, images & videos, products & events, status updates etc) across all major online directories, apps, maps, navigation systems, and review sites.
