411-SAVE





WHO: Andre Vanier, GSB2004

Andre started 1-800-411-SAVE when he finished business school a couple of years ago. He just launched the nationwide coverage recently. The idea is simple...never pay for 411 services again, and he will make the problem go away by selling advertising. The vision is to be the 411 for people who want to save on the telephone with special offers and discounts, much in the same way that consumers have become accustomed to on the internet with search.

I think an example is important here. If you want to order flowers, you can call 411 and ask for a florist and you will be happily connected for no ADDITIONAL charges but you will pay somewhere around $1.50. Instead if you use 1-800-411-SAVE then the operator will give you the florist number after a 15 second phonmercial from 1-800-FLOWERS offering you 15% off any order. Simple, easy, everything is the same except the number you dial and the bill
you pay.

He does have some competition - Jingle Networks - but you can bet Andre is going to give them a run for their money. Together they can take on the telco's...

SUPPORT ANDRE - try 1-800-411-SAVE, store it in your cell phone, and tell two friends.

I definitely agree with Mr. Leckie. I don't wanna get stuck talking to a computer! With 1-800-411SAVE, live operators are there to assist you! What a way to enjoy free directory assistance! :-)

This service really works! Undeniably true and is very reliable when it comes to accuracy! I tried it several times and never did they miss to give me what I have requested. I compared all the providers of free directory assistance and I must say that 1-800-411-SAVE stood up far among the rest.. More power.

I’ve experienced several directory assistance services and I just discovered 1-800-411-save. I’ve splurge so much money on getting phone numbers but there are times that I get wrong numbers. Ive just dialled 1-800-411 save a couple of minutes ago and I got a human being on the other end of the line. She got my request very fast and gave me a correct phone number. That is simply amazing, without any charge I will definitely use it again

Yah! me too. I dont want a machine. They just makes me look stupid. Live operators will be my choice. 411SAVE somehow is working for me. I think it will work for others too. No charge for a DA service, nice!!!!
