Retailers of all sizes to have easy management of product information and availability for Web, Mobile and Social networks

PALO ALTO, Calif. and CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Retailigence (http://retailigence.com) and Universal Business Listing (www.UBL.org) today announced an agreement to enable businesses to deliver product inventory data to web and mobile search engines.

UBL will connect its business customers with the Retailigence platform which gives them increased access to online and mobile marketing capabilities.

"Our SMB customers have been particularly challenged when it comes to their products being 'found' by shoppers," said UBL President Chris Travers. "This partnership will extend our business profile syndication to a new range of dynamic data to help retailers be found organically in local product searches."

Mobile shoppers use Retailigence-powered apps on their smartphones to do product searches in real-time. Being found in these highly relevant and local searches means customers with intent to purchase will be driven to retailers' doors.

"Both our companies have an interest in improving the visibility of businesses in the fast growth local search environment," said Retailigence's Vice President of Business Development, Nitin Gupta. "Having accurate business listings and current product inventory fully exposed to online and mobile shoppers is essential to be competitive today. We now make this possible for companies of all sizes and budgets."

Retailigence will also be offering its clients the UBL business listing submission services which ensure company profiles are accurate and detailed across search engines, directories, social networks and 411 directory assistance. UBL also provides reporting on listing presence and reputation management related to business locations.
