How to Hire Process Servers or Private Investigators
by ServeNow.com Staff

When you hire a new employee, you are entrusting that employee with the future of your company. A good employee can make your customers happy and can bring more leads and more enthusiasm into your workplace. However, the wrong employee can literally cost you your business. According to U.S. Department of Commerce statistics, employee dishonesty alone causes 30 percent of all business failures. Worse, once an employee commits crimes against company property, employees and/or clients, this rate jumps to more than 60 percent.

"ServeNow.com has been absolutely fantastic for our business. Since joining, we have seen a huge increase in business and continue to grow each day. We are very happy with Mike MacDonald and the rest of the staff, they are top notch."

 Bob Joiner
 Legal Investigative Group LLC
 Wetumpka, AL

"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."
