GetHuman

One of the ways that companies try cut costs is by making it hard to reach a customer support representatives. Some of the tricks they use include hard to find support numbers, forcing callers into obtuse automated help systems and long hold times. 

If you have ever been frustrated trying to get support for a product or service, GetHuman is the site for you.

Created in 2006 by Kayak.com co-founder Paul English, GetHuman is a crowd sourced directory listing the best customer service numbers for thousands of companies around the world. In many cases GetHuman is able to provide a number that bypasses self service and takes you straight to a live representative. Where that's not possible, GetHuman tells you which buttons to push or phrases to say cut quickly through the interactive voice response (IVR) system and reach a human. The site also lists company's email support addresses and live chat URLs.

GetHuman's mobile webapp works well in smartphone browsers and with proxy browsers like Opera Mini. The heavy page weight may be an issue with legacy mobile browsers or for users on metered data plans.

CAT Scale Mobile

CAT Scale Mobile results pageI don't know how many truckers read Wap Review but I bet there are at least a few. So here's a dedicated trucking industry mobile site. It's a mobile web based truck scale locator from CAT Scale, a company that manufactures and operates automatic truck scales. The URL is catscale.mobi

CAT Scale claims to be the largest truck scale network in the world, with over 1,200 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. It's important for truckers to know the weight of their rigs as load limits vary from highway to highway and operating an overweight truck can result in a substantial fine. CAT Scale offers a guarantee that if a driver receives an overweight fine after weighing legal on a CAT brand scale, the company will either pay the fine or appear in court with the driver as an expert witness in order to get the fine dismissed

The Cat Scale mobile site is quite easy to use. You enter a postal code or a city and US state or Canadian province and get a listing of the three nearest CAT Scales with address and click-to-call phone number. There is also a Google mobile map highlighting the scale locations with the option to get driving directions to any of them. The search interface also offers some advanced options to change the search radius and number of results although the defaults should be fine in most cases.
