Austin, TX (Vocus) December 11, 2009
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) recently assigned a rating of A- on the Reliability Report for Zilker Ventures, which owns review websites FaxCompare.com, Email-Marketing-Options.com and Tax-Compare.com. According to the BBB, the rating means that Zilker has met BBB Accreditation standards, “which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints.”
“We’re thrilled that we’ve been accredited by the Better Business Bureau,” says Zilker Ventures CEO Gaines Kilpatrick. “We’re committed to providing quality information through our websites that serve consumers, many of whom are also small business owners and entrepreneurs.”
FaxCompare.com, which helps over 20,000 per month select a fax service, reviews internet fax services from companies, such as eFax, MyFax and RingCentral, and features side-by-side comparison chart of the top services. The chart lists the number of pages included in each plan, the number of users allowed, availability of customer support, and pricing, along with several other comparison points. It also reveals any “hidden fees” that might be overlooked by consumers during the sign-up process.
Kilpatrick says that including the hidden fees information on the site shows Zilker’s commitment to the best interests of consumers who use the site. “[Consumers] usually don’t have time to read the fine print,” he says, “but our reviewers do. We simply want to share that information to make sure you get a product or service you’re satisfied with.”
