How does Partoo help you attract more customers via Waze?

Waze retrieves the information relating to your establishments directly from the Partoo database, making it both quicker and easier. Once your establishment is listed on Waze, app users will be able to find it, calculate how long it will take them to get there, and view the services offered, the phone number, the website and even the opening hours:

What’s more, Waze users can add further information such as car parks in the area, the payment methods accepted and even photos. Waze also uses reviews posted on Foursquare and Google My Business to enrich its database, and users can share their routes, destinations and even locations via e-mail and SMS. Partoo ensures that your information is kept up to date on one of the most widely used GPSs in France!

Partoo publishes your information on Waze using its free service. Businesses can take out a subscription for clickable pins directly with the Waze teams.
