    "I joined ServeNow.com and within 48 hours I had obtained multiple requests for process service that paid for my initial joining fees and made a profit. It has also opened possibilities for future investigation assignments."

     Robert Bryant
     Bryant Investigations
     Winston Salem, NC

    "Since late last year, Servenow.com has directed more traffic to our website than any combination of three other internet advertising campaigns. The increased traffic has more than tripled the amount of business actually received for the Process and Court Services division of our PI company. As a result, we now get repeat business from out-of-state clients and have solidified business relationships with dozens of local law firms. The ability to easily locate and forward papers to fellow members has also led to an increase in our bottom line. Servenow.com certainly shines above the rest for increased profitability."

    Government Contracts
    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.

    Would you like to be notified of Government Contract RFP's as they become available? If so, please join the following groups:
