Factual is above all else a data platform. While developers can contribute to Factual through our API, we ask all business- and brand-owners to submit data to Factual via a Trusted Data Contributor of their choice. This allows us to focus on the data, while the organizations above can address the wider range of listing management needs.

While the majority of contributions are processed in real-time, it can take longer for certain submissions to be reflected in our data. Our Trusted Data Contributors are however helping us manage the SMBs and brands behind the data, and we’ll continue to improve our workflow and timeliness.
