 Government RFPs and Contracts


Part 1: The Benefits of Securing Government Contracts
Process Server News Item
Government contracts provide your company with an opportunity for ongoing monthly revenue, but be selective when deciding which ones to pursue.

Government contracts can offer many benefits to process serving and investigative firms. Contracts can provide ongoing guaranteed revenue on a monthly basis and can make your firm more attractive when it comes time to sell.

Here's what a few of our advertisers are saying....
quote

Exposure is critical to the success of my company. With ServeNow.com, law firms and other process service companies from across the U.S. can find me. The reach that ServeNow.com provides has proven to be very lucrative for my business.

I am receiving at least 10 to 15 serves just from out of state clients on a weekly basis. The return on my investment becomes even greater when these clients come back to me for repeat business. I now have out-of-state companies that come to me for all their process service in Florida.

Additionally, I have clients that want me to handle their serves all over the United States. I can’t emphasize how important it is for me to know that I can go to ServeNow.com and find qualified and professional process servers to help me and my client.

Above all, I would like to thank the ServeNow.com team for making my money work for me. They are going above and beyond my expectations of a web directory. I have seen them at trade shows in my local area and am impressed at how they portray their brand and all the process serving companies associated with them.
