UENI is a Hammersmith, London based limited company which was founded in 2014 with the goal of providing an easy, low cost solution for small businesses to get online and get new customers through digital advertising. Time, cost, and complexity are the key barriers which prevent many small businesses in Europe from going online. To solve this challenge, UENI sends people to small businesses across Europe to capture information about them including images, location, contact information, opening hours, services offered and prices. UENI structures this information and creates a website for them. So far, UENI has visited 515,000 small businesses across 9 countries and 40 cities in Europe and created a digital presence for these businesses.
UENI focuses on businesses offering services, with broad coverage from beauty to health, pet care to automotive. UENI's solution is to deliver a comprehensible, ready-made solution, where UENI does all the work and the small businesses get the benefits without having to put any effort, or spending any time on it. Small businesses can sign-up or upgrade to an advanced UENI website, which has booking capability and enables consumers to book services directly from the website. Business owners get notifications for new bookings through text and email.
