How is my data structured in the platform?

1. Account2. Location3. Listing

We manage the location data in three main objects: Account, Location and Listing

These objects also help define the structure of a profile within our application.  

1. Account

An Account refers to a logically grouped pool of locations.

Accounts are often used when a company manages different brands, regions, countries, or subsidiaries using the same profile. This allows users of our software to assign different roles and access rights‍ .

In order to create your first location, you need to have at least one Account in your profile.  There can be an unlimited amount of Accounts in one profile and an unlimited amount of locations within an account. However, a Location cannot be in more than one Account at the same time.

In order to activate an Account, a Product Plan must be assigned to it.

2. Location

Locations contain the definitive data that will be sent to the directories and build the profile of your Listings.

Locations refer to all kinds of commercial and physical entities you can submit to directories. These could be offices, stores, pick&drops, information centers, etc. You can also define if the addresses are to be made visible for customers and if you offer special on-site services.

3. Listing

Listings are the most granular objects within an account and represent the publication on directories. Listings are managed by us but hosted by the directories (such as Google, Facebook, Yelp, etc).

A listing profile represents the final result that will be made visible for users as an online profile that contains the business details.
