Wallingford, CT, February 14, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Better Business Bureau of Connecticut is making it as easy to find a provider of goods and service as searching on Google or any business portal on the web.
“Consumer education is an important part of our mission,” according to Better Business Bureau Connecticut President Paulette Hotton.
“For nearly a century we have been helping Connecticut consumers find companies and service people whom meet our Standards of Trust, and many businesses in the state,” says Hotton, “are proud to be accredited businesses, and with the shift to online commerce, we play an even greater role for both them and consumers.”
It wasn’t long ago that it took hours, days or weeks to find a reputable company or service provider. Now that takes but a few seconds, at www.bbb.org
While Better Business Bureau does not recommend any particular business during a search, you may read online reports about companies who are accredited, those that meet BBB standards, those who have had their accreditation revoked, and those who may not have a satisfactory record.
Says Hotton, “It is so important to seek out a BBB accredited business, especially if you consider statistics gathered at the end of the year.”
The Satisfaction Index for conflict resolution
Non-accredited businesses 61.83 percent
BBB Accredited Businesses 99.96 percent
“This,” summarized Hotton, “is why it is to the advantage of both business and consumers to use BBB as a resource for finding reliable vendors.”
