Geneva Finance

Here at Geneva Finance, we find Desktop Trace to be a fast and an effective way to locate our missing clients. It takes only minutes to get an accurate location and other details, whereas it took several days to get the same information the old-fashioned way. The way Collections operates has changed and using a quality electronic location tool such as Desktop Trace gives us that edge. A bonus of this tool is its competitive pricing.

Protecta Insurance

Time is money and with Desktop Trace, the site is easy to navigate, and the
information is centralised and quick to access. With one click you have a
multitude of information at your fingertips which saves time and money.

Cabal Investigations

I fully recommend Desktop Trace as an efficient and cost-effective ‘one-stop’ service when trying to locate persons, that allows us to easily cross-reference information from several sources without having to maintain different accounts from multiple service providers.
