How does the Business View program work?

Wisco360 is fully trained and certified by Google to participate in the Business View Program. We work with you directly to schedule a time for the shoot. Next, we come to your location to take the photos. After patching the photos together, the 360-degree panoramic photos are added to Google’s multiple platforms to make your business instantly more accessible.

How much does it cost?

Costs for the photo shoot and subsequent implementation with Google vary depending on the size and location of your business. Register for a consultation to further discuss pricing with a trusted photographer from Wisco360.

How long does it take?

The photo shoot itself takes around 1-2 hours on average, but the total time depends on the size of your business. Once the photo shoot is complete, the images are processed and uploaded to Google. A more precise timeframe can be given after an initial consultation.
