Google Street View Technology for Businesses
Google Business View uses their state-of-the-art technology to stitch together HDR panoramic images into a virtual tour of a business. This is similar to Google Street View. Through a series of connected 360-degree panoramic images, users will be able to “walk around” and explore the interior of your business. They’ll be able to view your merchandise displays, see your dining room, and better understand all the unique features you have to offer. They’ll almost be able to visualize being there themselves, and will be one step closer to doing business with you. It’s a fun way to let potential customers see what you’re all about.
This Works on Computers, Tablets, and Smartphones
Getting customers to visit you that first time can be a real challenge. This technology will enable your prospects to step inside and take a quick tour of your business no matter where they are. It helps people see and trust your business before they buy.

Customers follow the directional arrows throughout the store, and at any point along the way they can pan around 360 degrees, back track, and can even zoom in to look closer at items of interest.
