Use Technology To Your Advantage

Use Technology To Your Advantage
by ServeNow.com/PInow.com Staff

When Matt Klein, Vice President of Sunshine Legal Services, began accepting electronic papers in the late 1990s his business increased between 30 and 40 percent. Customer service is just one of the many reasons why most process serving companies are now receiving files electronically. In fact, according to a ServeNow.com Yahoo! Group poll, 89 percent of process servers will accept electronic documents. Klein credits his decision to receive papers electronically to increasing his business' productivity and efficiency.

"You guys rock! There has definitely been an upswing in our business because of ServeNow.com. Other company's customer service pales in comparison to yours. There was another company we were talking to, but we asked for our money back because their customer service was so bad. Mike MacDonald has always been very helpful and never has excuses. Anyone who has the opportunity to advertise with ServeNow.com and doesn't is making a huge business mistake. It's the best advertising money we've spent in seven years. Aside from the additional business, that has brought ServeNow.com to the forefront of our minds, is the invaluable customer service we have received."

 Dell Schilleci
 SCV Legal
 Valencia, CA

"We have been on the site for two years, and before advertising we did a lot of research about how to spend our money. ServeNow.com is so focused that it's great and exactly what we're looking for. We've gotten some really good clients. About three months ago we got a big process serving contract with a company down South. It absolutely pays for itself every month."

"When I ask people how they found me, they are always saying 'PInow.com and ServeNow.com.' Probably half of my calls come from PInow.com."

 Dave Stark
 Aspen Country Surveillance
 Glenwood Springs, CO

"I think PInow.com is one of the greatest sources of investigative clients from all over the world. They offer a tremendous opportunity for PIs to gain targeted market exposure without doing any of the legwork and that certainly makes them one of the best returns on investment I can possibly suggest."

 Jimmie Mesis, Editor-in-Chief
 PI Magazine, Inc.

Government Contracts: RFP's for Investigators and Process Servers

State and government contracts can provide process servers and investigators with steady, recurring revenue. Many ServeNow.com and PInow.com advertisers have been awarded contracts such as these as a result of being listed with us.

Government agencies advertise RFP's (request for proposal) for these contracts. As a free service to you, we provide the details of these contracts as they become available.
