Staged upgrade of Google Places Dashboard - a tool that allows local business owners to update informations, manage and claim their business listing that appears on Google+ Local, HotelFinder and Search Result. 

According to Qasar Younis, the said update will be rolled out to business owners over the coming weeks which offers some new functionality which includes look and design, more integration with Google products and faster updates.

Look and Design

Interface is simple and is more likely base on Google+ with its navigation options in the left-hand column. A widget that will help understand on how to complete your business profile. There are also tabs for managing listing information, a Google+ Local page, AdWords Express ads and Offers.

Edits go live faster
Unlike before where in your edits will be marked as pending or being reviewed, now faster data updates on edits will appear on the actual listing within 48 hours.

Better integrated with Google products

Google+ Local page is now accessible from the upgraded interface to socialize with your customers. Manages your ads and promotions on AdWords Express and Google Offers on your upgraded Places for Business dashboard plus check results and make edits directly.

With the new Google Places for Business Dashboard interface and upgrades hopefully it will address the issues of local business owners in editing and updating their listings. This will also give them  more opportunity  and take advantage of Google+ Local to socialize with their customers by giving them more exposure online, interact and reach out with customers and be on local search result.
