How can I get a company or website I visit to use Infotriever?
Infotriever is a customer service enhancement that most people would say makes their lives easier (our user surveys have shown that 90% of users have a very high or high level of overall satisfaction, and 96% prefer to use a service that uses Infotriever). In fact, we like to think of Infotriever as a standard of excellence in Internet customer service. However, as compelling as these results may be, we have found that companies really respond best to their own (existing) customers. If you want to see a website or company using Infotriever, our best recommendation is to contact them (typically through an email address such as email@example.com) and let them know. Feel free to let us know as well, and we will do whatever we can to help them see the light.
