Taleee's Customer Connect Dashboard makes it simple for businesses to connect with consumers

The best businesses don’t need to offer a daily deal. We bring them new customers who appreciate their great food, service or product…quality versus a mediocre meal or noisy hotel room. Who wants an 80 percent discount at Rotten Joe’s Pizza Shack?

A romantic weekend getaway in Montreal, a relaxing night in London’s hip Chelsea district, a savory breakfast at beautiful Lake Tahoe, all of these are top rated, above average which is what everyone wants to experience…and you just may be able to for free with Taleee’s “Try the Best” gift certificate program.

Taleee sums up world opinion about places and products, cutting through the information overload that a general search engine provides, while also providing global insight versus one website’s or magazine’s limited opinions. Taleee’s technology now boasts over 2 billion consumer opinions about places and products, and shows you the best restaurants and hotels in most major cities worldwide.

“Consumers want to find the best places based on everyone’s opinion, businesses want to find those customers. We connect them through our technology and services,” said Steve Harmon, co-founder and CEO of Taleee (pronounced ‘tally’, as in sum).

Businesses using Taleee’s service are promoted across the Web, with consumers able to connect with them and get free gift certificates to “Try the Best” through Taleee’s platform.

Taleee’s Top Rated Web-Wide® restaurants and hotels all provide a great experience and are rated 4 stars or higher web-wide.

“These are the places that we all want to eat and stay at,” Harmon said.

Taleee’s dialogue with these top business owners showed that the daily deal idea wasn’t attractive to them, that type of advertising isn’t very effective, and they wanted a better way to engage customers and consumers.

“The best businesses don’t need to offer a daily deal,” Harmon said. “We bring them new customers who appreciate their great food, service or product…quality versus a mediocre meal or noisy hotel room. Who wants an 80 percent discount at Rotten Joe’s Pizza Shack?”

Taleee’s unique service lets a business engage customers however they choose, from repeat rewards, free food or stays, discounts, VIP treatment, specials and more.

For example, the Residence Inn By Marriott in Montreal uses Taleee’s new service and has already added several hundred new customer contacts to their email promotion list…these are people that are interested in staying at their hotel. Taleee selects a winner monthly to get a free night stay, among other benefits. The hotel now has a qualified lead list for new customers it can reach out to anytime through Taleee’s social connect service.

“I love it!” said Residence Inn by Marriott – Montreal Downtown manager Sonia Grenier, referring to Taleee’s Customer Connect service and social media promotions. The hotel is Top Rated Web-Wide, rated 4.3 of 5 stars Web-Wide by Taleee’s opinion algorithm.

Top Rated Web-Wide restaurant, Squeeze In, uses Taleee to engage new customers for its locations in Lake Tahoe and Reno. The popular breakfast spot is rated 4.1 of 5 stars Web-Wide by its customers.

Misty Young, owner and founder (with her husband Gary) of Squeeze In, said “We love our guests. We serve excellent food. We focus on a great experience. We love and train our associates. We pay attention to detail. We go the extra mile”.

Consumers looking for the best places to eat and stay can see a list for their city, town or area at taleee.com. Businesses who are rated tops by customers are also qualified to participate in Taleee’s Customer Connect and social media service. Harmon mentioned that Taleee is building a new version of its site to expand its offering…here’s a glimpse of their “Direct Connect mini CRM” online console for restaurants, hotels and businesses…a flexible tool that allows a business to engage customers in many ways:

“We’ve built up our opinion data to over 2 billion opinions and what we call the ‘super site’ web and mobile experience for both consumers and businesses is going to be debuting soon. Harmon, who is a veteran of the web industry and backed the company behind Ad Sense (sold to Google), said he’s excited at the response from businesses and the growth ahead. “We even have hotels in Rinno, Lithuania using our service. This is just the beginning”.
