The concept of online business directory is comparatively new in Dubai. Dubai, undoubtedly the largest commercial hub of Asia and one of the busiest trading hubs of the world is home to a large number of active companies. However, most of the business sectors in Dubai have been unorganized. Many a times, the traders of different sectors had created syndicates which put efforts to organize the business sectors by consolidating information of all the companies operating in each sector. However, no syndicate could succeed in such herculean tasks. Indeed, it is very difficult to organize the business sectors which are marked by rapid changes and heavy dynamism. The scenario started changing since the last decade. With the advent of digital technology and the penetration of internet in the society, a number of online business directories started developing. Today, there are a few full-fledged online business directories operating in Dubai.
The function of these online business directories is to classify different companies according to their sectors and display them on a single platform. If you access any UAE business directory, you would be able to view different companies in each sector. If you are interested in any company of any sector for investments or any other business concern, you can ask for the contact details of that particular company from the online business directory. They would ask you to become a premium user of the directory in order to access the contact details. Becoming a premium user is a very easy process. All you have to do is to create a personalized account in the business directory. To activate your account, you might need to pay a small amount. Once you become a premium user, the online business directory will provide you with all the contact details of the company you are interested in.
Initially, when the online business directories were launched, they were accessible through browsers only. However, in the last few years, almost all the online business directories of Dubai have launched mobile applications. If you install a mobile application, you job of finding the list of companies in UAE becomes easier. The mobile applications are very fast and extremely user friendly. Another excellent aspect of the online business directories is that they keep updating the details of each company listed in their database on real time. The information index of each listing is linked with the website of the particular company. So, if any change is announced by the company, it gets reflected in the online business directory.
The best thing about the online business directories is that you can filter your range of search. For example, if you want details of any automobile company, all you have to do is to filter the search results under automobile companies in Dubai.
