New Validation Technologies and Continuous Dialogue with Businesses Yields High Confidence, High Quality Listings
Vienna, VA - Raising the accuracy bar again, Localeze, the largest business listings identity management provider for local search, today announced its new and improved Business Registration Manager (BRM) which further validates listing ownership of a business’ online identity. The newly launched BRM establishes ongoing dialogue with verified business listing authors, creating trusted authorized relationships, which yield a high level of confidence in listings quality for local search platforms.
“With our upgraded BRM web application, we are making it easier for businesses to claim, manage, and enhance their local search business listing identities, while delivering more accurate data to our local search platform partners,” said Jeff Beard, president, Localeze. “This is one of many significant enhancements that our clients and partners will benefit from in the coming weeks and months as we continue to help businesses take control of their local identities and share them online.”

The web application gives complete 24/7 access to update, revalidate, and manage local search business listings.
With the “Manage Listings” user interface, validators identify listings that need improvement based on a proprietary automated analysis and provide recommended corrective action. Through the BRM, Localeze will now proactively notify clients of the status of their listings with a monthly dashboard and link for them to correct and update their data, and re-verify their status as the authorized owner of the business listings.
