Waze and Uber are two of the most talked about companies in the world. Waze, the Israeli Startup makes traffic flow simpler through millions of user data-points, and Uber, the California-based pioneer in mobility. Both are changing the way we think about transportation, and you, as an uberall customer can take advantage of this trend - that’s why we’ve prepared the following points for you.

Waze - Smart maps for smartphones

Waze began in 2006 as the community project “FreeMap Israel”. Under the direction of Ehud Shabtai in Jerusalem, it aimed to develop a free map for Israel in Hebrew, built from mass-collected user data.

Since then, Waze has gained over 65 million users in 185 countries around the world and has been part of the Google Empire since 2013.

An innovative approach: Based on the data of all Waze users, routes are created in real-time and constantly optimized. For example, an exit-road may be free during the beginning of a driver’s journey, but become increasingly congested as the journey continues. Waxe changes the route dynamically, guiding the driver through alternative, and sometimes residential areas, while offering the quickest route possible. Thus the driver can avoid the congested exit road well into their journey.

As well as traffic congestion, construction sites are also reliably reported - bypassing both will makes commuters journeys a lot simpler. Furthermore, Waze data is also included in the Google Maps navigation service, but the self-contained app continues to grow.

What you can achieve with uberall:

Waze obtains the POI (Point of Interest, a place on a map) data from Google, which is part of the all-round listings network, and thus contains location data from uberall customers. That means your data synchronized in the listings network can also be found automatically at Waze. Drivers can navigate directly to your stores in a much quicker way.


Uber - The all-rounder from California

Founded in 2009 by Travis Kalanick (now CEO) and Garrett Camp in San Francisco, Uber is one of the fastest growing companies in the world.

What started out as a chauffeur brokerage is now a globally operating corporation, which recently made profits of 10 billion US dollars in 570 cities worldwide. The range extends from travel agencies (persons and goods) to food delivery services, and there’s always rumours of more extravagant services such as helicopter pick ups…

In addition to Tesla and Google, Uber is one of the pioneers in the field of self-driving cars.

What you can achieve with uberall:

The App, which is used by both drivers and customers, is based on a journey service. This serves drivers for navigation and customers to define pick-up and destination locations. Here it is worthwhile for every local company to be represented with its own locations.

The concept behind the App is, above all, the networking of users and places: This allows users to meet at specific locations or share the actual location in real time to make it easier to find. This location could be your branch or business.

During the trip, the passenger can look for good restaurants or interesting shops at Yelp or Foursquare - also here you are represented with your locations from the all over Listings Network.


Conclusion:

The new map technologies are on the rise and will revolutionize and make many things more intelligent. But even the best technology does nothing without having high-quality, reliable location data. Data that will also include new players from trusted partners.

With the uberall Listings Network, you are at the forefront when it comes to being present with your locations in the most important areas, without extra effort. Trust us your location data and we will take care of the rest.
