Alphabet Inc.'s (GOOG) Google said it agreed to acquire Pointy, an online inventory company based in Dublin, Ireland.
With Pointy, merchants plug a small box into their barcode scanner or install the Pointy app on their point-of-sale system, which uploads the products directly into the "See what's in store" section of their business profile on Google Search.
"Since we introduced this functionality a few years ago, Pointy has been one of our key partners, helping thousands of local merchants display this data within Google," said a blog post from Peter Chane, Google senior director, Local SMB Products.
Pointy said in a blog post that the deal is expected to close in the coming weeks.
