A new enhancement by ContACT Internet Solutions now allows businesses to show their specific street entrance or location view as seen by Google mapping at the date of their last photography update.

The clever enhancement replaces address based mapping which can produce a picture which looks in the wrong direction.when Street View is used.

ContACT the IT company behind GoSeeAustralia’s success once again provides enhancements for the benefit all users. “Tweaking of our version of Google location mapping allows Industry businesses and caravan parks around Australia to fine tune their business location via Street View,” Managing Director Graham Wallace said.

He said address based mapping can confuse visitors to the GoSeeAustralia’s website who are looking for businesses and caravan parks. “This ContACT enhancement means advertisers can choose their specific look from the best of Google’s views, whether it be their sign, building or entrance, in some cases even up the driveway,” Graham Wallace said.

GoSeeAustralia also provides additional features to advertising listings like real time booking links with advertising pages free of charge. This adds value to paid advertising. Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and Trip Advisor logo’s and links can also be added.

Another advantage of GoSee’s self-manage on-line advertising opportunities allows businesses to update their listings at any time of the day or night also free of charge.

ContACT Internet Solution's IT Department has brought new equipment online in recent months as well as updating and enhancing systems for the benefit of customers and users. Many of these new developments will go online over the Christmas holiday period.

These include:
  • A new mail server will be installed late at night to allow minimal disruption to ContACT's clients.
  • There will be a number of upgrades to services affected by Microsoft changes in Internet Explorer10 and Internet Explorer 11.
  • These Internet Explorer changes include updated calendars, text editors, and many other items that now cause compatability issues.
