Sick of dealing with automated phone systems? Paul English and Walt Tetschner were. That’s why they created their respective websites Gethuman.com and Get2Human.com. These are databases of secret codes that can be entered during an automated message to get to a real human. But they are more than databases, they represent a movement.
“The GetHuman™ movement was created from the voices of millions of consumers who want to be treated with dignity when they contact an enterprise for customer support. Our goal is to convince enterprises that providing high quality customer service and having satisfied customers costs much less than providing low quality customer service and having unsatisfied customers.” – Get2Human.com
Both sites allow you to search for the company you are interested in and have options that let you sort by country, industry or company name. Thanks to Paul and Walt.
