MapQuest announced that it has made some adjustments to the way businesses can manage their listings. The AOL-owned company says the changes make the process of handling information corrections more streamlined.

In other words, it’s now easier to change contact info, hours of operation, addresses, etc.

“For nearly two decades, MapQuest has been helping people get from A to B,” MapQuest’s Laura Maxwell said in a blog post. “We’ve introduced tools, we’ve improved the interface and, after observing how people interact with our products, we iterate again. One such instance is how businesses are using the MapQuest Local Business Center (LBC).”

“This has always been and will continue to be a free service. For businesses looking to amplify their presence, whether it be monitoring customer reviews, adding enhanced content to a listing or syncing content with their business Facebook page, MapQuest will still offer business solutions there, too,” Maxwell added.

At the end of the month, MapQuest will be retiring the basic LBC version, though it will continue a partnership with Yext, which provides listing enhancement tools.
