Cunningham Restaurant Group recognized the importance of a strong online presence but faced significant challenges in managing their listings across key online directories. Discrepancies in business information like addresses, phone numbers, and operating hours across Google, Facebook, Bing, and Apple Maps diluted their brand consistency. Additionally, the manual handling of customer reviews across various sites proved inefficient and ineffective in fostering positive customer relationships.
