Army of Researchers
We have a team of over 50 regionally based field researchers, who visit and verify over 15,000 premises every week of the year, capturing a wealth of data & imagery, come rain or shine.
Knowledge & experience
We have been collecting data in the field for over ten years, building up a fantastic knowledge base on how to maintain a database with more than 500,000 'moving parts'.
Our researchers work tirelessly, updating our database of 500,000+ premises, visiting hundreds of high streets each month and taking thousands of images.
The gold standard
Our data is displayed on websites millions of times each day and we form the backbone of key local search products for Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Yell, to name just a few.
We use multiple sources to update our database, including field & office research, which physically visit each premises, as well as direct updates from retailers and customers.
We believe in harnessing data and technology - from our office database to the mobile app we use in the field to the products we sell - we have developed it all in-house.
