Has it really been ten years already? Since its launch in 2007, Google Street View has become the industry leader when it comes to providing virtual, panoramic images of towns, businesses, local landmarks and much more. Now an integral part of Google Maps, Google Street View has continued to evolve over the last decade, incorporating masses of new information and providing users with comprehensive – and frequent – updates.

Did you know that geoloation technology can boost your business’ online conversion rates by up to 15%? Woosmap’s Local Search as a Service platform lets businesses get the best out of location data, to enhance customer experience, improve your online sales conversion and increasing in store visits.

Online giant Amazon has come up with an intriguing solution: Amazon Lockers. Designed to simplify the delivery process while guaranteeing customer satisfaction, over 1,400 lockers are currently available across the UK. Read on to discover how Amazon’s latest innovation is changing the e-retail game – and find out where you can locate your nearest Amazon Locker with Web Geo Services’ interactive map.

In terms of industry competition, businesses are constantly raising the bar when it comes to attracting new customers and simplifying online transactions. The solution? Taking advantage of geolocation to facilitate localisation and create customer proximity. A key tool when implementing this strategy is Local Search as a Service (LSaaS), a localised search engine.

When it comes to saving the customer time, online retailers tend to go above and beyond to encourage online shoppers to finalise their purchases. Astonishingly, however, almost 70% of shopping carts never make it to checkout – a frustrating state of affairs for businesses looking to improving the customer experience!

When it comes to helping Online Retailers, Google Maps offers so much more then the name alone suggests. Let Google Cloud Premier Partner Web Geo Services introduces some of the most influential API’s used to drive your online business forward.
