CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBL Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB:UBLI) ("UBL"), a leader in online business listing presence management, and Advice Interactive Group, LLC ("Advice"), a digital agency with proprietary local search technologies currently marketed under the Local Site Submit brand, announced that the two companies will combine their digital presence management services under a new branded product suite to be called LocalHub.
LocalHub will become the customer-facing dashboard for services that allow businesses to take control of their location data in business listings appearing on Google, Bing, Yahoo and Apple Maps, along with hundreds of local search directories, social networks, and mapping services across the Internet.
The comprehensive reporting and presence monitoring tools now seen at LocalSiteSubmit.com and at UBL.org will quickly migrate to LocalHub.com. New business listing distribution services and management tools will become available in the new product dashboard there.
UBL and Advice recently announced their intent to merge in order to accelerate their growth globally in the rapidly developing local search services sector.
This new combined entity will be a global leader in SaaS based API syndication and presence management, distribution, and analytics, as well as the process by which businesses claim ownership and optimize listings on local search sites. Sign up at the company's temporary site "I'm All About That Data" (http://www.ImAllAboutThatData.com) to be one of the first to have access to the UBL/Advice combined tools including profile syndication, local content optimization, visibility reports, citation reports, sales tools, lead generation widgets and social and review management modules, as well as other powerful features and tools set to launch in the next few months.
"The merger with UBL Interactive represents a powerful opportunity for us to significantly expand our presence in a vibrant and very important market, not just here in the US but globally," said Bernadette Coleman, chief executive officer of Dallas-based Advice Interactive Group. "The new LocalHub brand will clearly reveal its ability to be a global leader in the digital presence management space. Its considerable proprietary local search technologies, services, resources and expertise will allow us to lead this major market segment. We're excited to reveal our new brand as we focus our combined energies on serving a broader range of customers with industry-leading solutions."
Advice also operates an award winning, full service digital agency that will continue to operate under the Advice Interactive brand.
The announcement coincides with the Local Search Association's annual conference in Los Angeles (http://www.localsearchassociation.org/main/conference2015.aspx) where executives from the companies are on hand to introduce partners to LocalHub.
