What is SinglePlatform?
SinglePlatform is simply that. A user-friendly single platform for you to accurately and efficiently distribute your menu and business information, including the name, address, phone and hours of operation, across all of the relevant search engine, social networking, travel & review sites.
By publishing your owner-verified menu across all the important websites, you are ensuring your data's integrity and consistency, helping you get discovered by the right customers at the right time.
Save time, gain insight, and stand out everywhere that matters online with SinglePlatform.
Super, But Why Do You Have My Menu?
That's an excellent question. We've been in the menu distribution business for a while now. As a result, we have great, long-standing relationships with all of the search, social, travel and review sites (i.e. publishers).
Publishers like to provide as much information to the public as possible. Because of this, they don't like having gaps in their data (think of it as a missing a front tooth, but a missing menu instead). When they do have gaps, these publishers look to data providers (like us) to fill them in.
To answer your question, when there is no owner-verified data available, data aggregators (think of RSS feed providers), fearlessly scour the internet for as much of your business information as possible and provide it to us. We then provide that information to the publishers. Conversely, when we have owner-verified data, we send it their way.
But, Can't I Just Manage The Menu Myself?
That would be nice! But, most publishers got blasted with calls and emails from businesses about menu inaccuracies. They decided to work with third party menu distributors to ease that burden. I know, not ideal!
There are some businesses that were "grandfathered in" with previous rules. An example: a link to a menu on their business website. While you may occasionally see this (or something like it), it's definitely the exception rather than the rule.
So, there are two options for you. You can give us a call at 877.564.8728 and we'll take down the current menu. Or you can hire a menu distributor like Yext, Locu or, of course, SinglePlatform, to manage your menu for you.
