On April 9, Yellowpages.com announced that their widely popular directory app, YP, now includes Uber integration. This is big news for those who use the YP app to search for local businesses that are in the Uber service area. Users can now request an Uber car directly from within the YP app which can save them a lot of time.
Darren Clark, the chief technology officer for YP stated:
We’re thrilled to work with Uber to offer consumers an easy and convenient solution for commuting to their local businesses. Through API integrations, we are transcending the limitations of a single app by providing an enhanced experience to our users that allows them do more all within the YP platform.
Last year Fandango, GrubHub, and Goodzer were integrated with the YP app as well, allowing it to serve an even wider audience. YP dedicates itself to assisting local businesses grow and this newest addition of Uber will certainly help that mission.
Whether you are in search of a restaurant, theater, or local dry cleaner the YP app is designed to provide you with the results and details you need. Now you can request Uber service directly from the business listing section of the app allowing you to get on your way faster than before.
