Nobody likes to lose anything - especially if it is irreplaceable like information on a laptop, memories on a camera, or for that matter a pet
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 16, 2011
Infinite Values, Inc. announced the launch of the new ImHONEST® Intelligent Lost and Found Service. After its initial introduction in 2004, ImHONEST has reinvented itself with a free service that addresses the lost and found problem in a creative, social and interactive way. Whereas traditional online services require looking through endless lists, ImHONEST eliminates the tedious process by searching for and displaying only relevant matches. The innovative service is based on the premise that when given the opportunity, people will do the right thing, as the name ImHONEST implies.
“Nobody likes to lose anything - especially if it is irreplaceable like information on a laptop, memories on a camera, or for that matter a pet,” said Joël A. Núñez, president and founder of ImHONEST.com. Almost everyone has either lost a valuable or knows someone that has. A Pointsec study indicated that more than 85,000 phones and 21,000 Smartphones have been lost in Chicago taxis alone. As staggering as these numbers may seem, they did not include articles such as keys, sunglasses, wallets, purses, memory sticks, etc. Because of the vast quantity of items that are lost, people have resorted to using online listings, community bulletin boards, flyers and posters on telephone poles. "We are excited to serve more people with this free community resource that encourages people to post what they have lost and for Good Samaritans to list what they have found,” continued Joël.
The free ImHONEST service is simple, private and anonymous. Visitors enter information regarding what they lost or found. The site then searches for compatible matches and instantly displays them, or triggers an email at a later time when a match is found. For valuables that have an ImHONEST ID label, the matching process is even easier and gives owners peace-of-mind. Finders can use the unique code on each label to report the item online or by calling a toll free number 24/7. Convenient drop off locations are available nationwide at The UPS Store® at no cost to the finder, or public lost and found locations may be used as well. Owners are happily reunited with their valuables, and finders have the reward of doing a good deed. In addition, finders receive a tangible gift worth $30 of ImHONEST ID labels.
