API access denied for our company. Alternate solutions?

So access to the API was denied for my client's company.  Leaves me without a solution.   All we want to do is to read data from the client My Business profile and use it to display an interactive google map (with location data) 

 

Has anyone had a similar issue - were you able to find an alternate solution?

 

-thanks

Hi @Sean K,

 

We suggest you use the Google Places API instead to retrieve read-only comprehensive information about the indicated place such as its complete address, phone number, user rating and reviews.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!

 

Thanks,

Shalini, Google My Business API team

The problem with the places API is that it requires either a search or for the application to know the place id beforehand. The goal here was for the organization to manage all their location data inside the my business portal.  Having to export (csv) or paste place IDs into their application is starting to smack of double entry.
