Rip-off Report Investigation
Pathfinder Business Strategies joins Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program. ..A long name for a program that does a lot for both consumers and business alike.
Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program, ..A program that benefits the consumer, which assures their complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business.
As a matter of policy, when Rip-off Report is retained by a company to mount an independent investigation and to publish our findings, we examine the truthfulness of the consumer complaints using every bit of information at our disposal. Our process is systematic and highly effective because: 1) It takes place at the consumer level and 2) the company or individual in our Corporate Advocacy Program must commit to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' By working closely with the company or individual, Rip-off Report can track the footprints left behind when their promised level of customer service is actually followed by the solid ground of real behavior. Only then do we publish our findings.
Rip-off Report cannot ever guarantee any product or service, but we can only report what we find, in order to help you get a better understanding of the company or individual we are investigating. That having been said, the conclusion Rip-off Report came to after our investigation, to the best of our knowledge, is that this company is a reputable firm, offering products and services of real value. ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES.

athfinder Business Strategies approached Rip-Off Report last month with the express purpose of resolving consumer concerns posted on Rip-off Report. Pathfinder Business Strategies has had and continues to maintain an in-house customer support team that handles ongoing client inquiries and requests regarding services. Company executives stated to Rip-off Report that Pathfinder has made further improvements in their customer service delivery to ensure complete satisfaction, such as dedicating a portion of their customer service team specifically to issues uncovered by Rip-off Report. Pathfinder Business Strategies CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS
Pathfinder Business Strategies is a Financial Education Consulting Company that works with clients to design and implement corporate strategies that best fit each individual's unique situation so they can reduce their taxes and protect their assets. The primary issue uncovered in the Rip-off Report investigation was that many of the complaints had to do with clients feeling that they had not realized the savings guarantee that Pathfinder offers. Pathfinder Business Strategies' number one priority is customer satisfaction, and each and every customer is a priority, so this issue became their primary focus for improvement.
Drew Miles, CEO and owner of Pathfinder Business Strategies has closely analyzed the services which caused negative feedback and has offered each customer the opportunity to work directly with him, so that they can recognize and implement the strategies recommended. Changes have been made within their system that will prevent the recurrence of similar misconceptions in the future. Such changes include a thorough review of the implementation plan with the client by their team of professionals. Included in this review is ensuring that the client sees the promised value at the conclusion of their program. Additionally, they recommend next steps, such as their maintenance program, a solution which helps to keep client strategies current and up-to-date with changes in applicable laws. STATEMENTS FROM PATHFINDER BUSINESS STRATEGIES
Pathfinder Business Strategies is a Financial Education and Consulting Company which teaches their clients how to protect their assets and save money on their taxes. Founder Drew Miles, a former attorney who after practicing for 13 years realized that most of his clients were unprepared financially for any economic downturn stated, "When the economy takes a turn for the worse, everyone starts tightening their belts, but one place that is often overlooked is the amount of taxes that they pay. We have proven methods to help people save when they need it most."
Pathfinder has advised more than 5,000 small and large businesses, as well as individuals, on how to arrange their assets and income to pay the absolute legal minimum in taxes. Mr. Miles stated, "We have found that the wealthiest people in the country are paying as little as 5% of their income in taxes, while the average person is paying upwards of 30-50% of their income in taxes. We can help everyone maximize their income, regardless of their tax bracket.".. Mr. Miles advises that the best way to prepare for a rocky economic future is to make sure that people are keeping all the money that they are legally entitled to. This is Pathfinder's mission.
As Mr. Miles said, Most importantly, Pathfinder strives to be the best at what it does, and we have a 110% commitment to customer service and support. We want anyone who ever comes in contact with Pathfinder, customer or otherwise, to be more than satisfied with the interaction with our staff and our services.

Pathfinder initially had only four issues that caused some concern as to the value of the programs offered. Drew Miles has taken great strides to offer to work personally with each of these clients to ensure that they become raving fans. Ultimately, Pathfinder strives to be proactive and avoid all potential issues, so they are doing everything in their power to manage any and all issues before they arise. For example, Pathfinder has beefed up their support team and added new processes in the program that allow them to identify and resolve issues more quickly, before they become a problem.
Because of our investigation and the sincere efforts put forth by Pathfinder, Rip-off Report is confident in giving Pathfinder a positive rating. All in all, the company implemented strategic changes to the delivery of their programs and has reached its goal of achieving total customer satisfaction through excellent service. They looked carefully at their systems and processes, sought to find any and all breakdowns, then actively pursued improvement in those areas.
Pathfinder executives understand that the only way to grow as a company is by first recognizing their weaknesses and then committing the resources necessary to fix the problems those weaknesses created. A Pathfinder executive stated, " We've made mistakes just as all businesses do, but we are committed to ensuring a 100% satisfaction rate with our clients. We succeed because they succeed. We will do whatever it takes to create value for our clients.

RESULTS OF MAILING TO ALL THOSE WHO FILED A RIP-OFF REPORT
As a part of the Corporate Advocacy Program - Rip-off Report sent an email to every client who filed a Report on Pathfinder Business Strategies and I would now like to share the results with you.
As usual when Rip-off Report does an emailing Out of the 5 Reports filed, .. 2 clients stated that they appreciated our efforts and related how they had already been taken care of in a satisfactory manner. One customer never responded One customer is in the process of working out their issues.. and one customer asked if they could remove the Report they filed and we explained that unfortunately, it was not possible. It is Rip-off Report's philosophy that it is much more beneficial for the consumer to see how a company like Pathfinder Business Strategies takes care of their mistakes. No company is without its share of problems, however, there are many companies who continually sweep those problems under the rug and never achieve the growth that other companies such as Pathfinder Business Strategies enjoys.
Rip-off Report feels Pathfinder Business Strategies has learned from all those who have complained... and they even seemed to be thankful for those who have brought problems to their attention. Pathfinder shows leadership by joining the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
Keep in mind, Pathfinder Business Strategies has worked with over 5,000 clients over time. What really is amazing that despite Rip-off Report appearing at the top of most search engines right above Pathfinder Business Strategies, .. so where are all the complaints? Pathfinder Business Strategies complaint ratio is a fraction of a percent of their overall clients. Rip-off Report knows that this is significantly below the industry standard for the clientele that they work with. From our perspective, it is quite unusual for a company who has had so few complaints request on their own to be a part of the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
