CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBL Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB/QB:UBLI) ("UBL"), The Local Leader with Global Reach™, today announced that Factual Inc., the leading location data company in mobile, has named UBL as one of its 13 designated partners in its newly launched "Factual Trusted Data Contributor Program."
Factual is a data company that helps make sense of what's happening in the physical world, enabling developers, publishers, and advertisers to build more relevant and personalized mobile experiences using the context of location. Factual's real-time data stack builds and maintains data on a global scale, with Factual's core Global Places data covering over 65 million local businesses and points of interest in 50 countries. Factual's Geopulse products, built on top of its Global Places data, provide industry leading real-time location targeting and location-based audience capabilities.
The Factual Trusted Data Contributor Program is comprised of organizations that Factual has specifically distinguished as companies who work directly with a large number of small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) and national or global brands, and, in turn, ensure that their data is represented accurately in Factual. In addition to providing high-quality data, these new partners have also been chosen by Factual because they are deemed to provide equally excellent service to their customers.
Doyal Bryant, Chairman and CEO of UBL, stated, "We are very proud to have been singled out by Factual as one of their most trusted data suppliers and look forward to expanding our relationship with them. As we continue to grow UBL's global network - particularly in relation to our global distribution platform rollout and expansion of our global client footprint, we intend to fully leverage Factual's global database networking and syndication capabilities, encompassing thousands of publishers and many of the world's largest brands in local search."
"Factual is above all else a data platform. While developers can contribute to Factual through our API, we ask all business- and brand-owners to submit data to Factual via a Trusted Data Contributor of their choice. This allows us to focus on the data, while our trusted partner organizations, including UBL, can address the wider range of listing management needs," noted Tyler Bell, Factual's Vice President of Product, in the launch announcement.
