New ContACT enhancement tweaks Street View to show it like it is

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 GoSeeAustralias 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 GoSeeAustralias website who are looking for businesses and caravan parks. This ContACT enhancement means advertisers can choose their specific look from the best of Googles 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 logos and links can also be added.

Another advantage of GoSees 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.

There have been additional features added to ContACT's Easy Use CMS which include:

The ability for businesses that have shopping carts to update their prices across the board by category by percentage, eg: all wholsale by 3 percent and retail by 4 percent.

A shopping cart product export in CSV file format (choosing fields you want).

The ability to allow customers to elect despatch by priority post (if Australia post is the elected method).

The ability to add registed post costs once a total cart exceeds a particular value eg: $200.

From 31 March 2014 ContACT will not store credit card details so all businesses should have converted to full merchant and/or Paypal facility by then.
