The Yellow Pages app has been downloaded over 1 million times and helps you find people and Canadian businesses by category, name, or location. Starting in October TELUS BlackBerry devices will come preloaded with the Yellow Pages app. In addition, this will also include the ability to complete voice-assisted searches and receive a confirmation texts with the information you searched for. Specifically for TELUS customers there’s an optional “concierge” service that connects you with a TELUS 411 agent who can give you added features beyond search such as driving directions or accommodations.
In a press release today TELUS’ CMO, David Fuller, stated that “Our partnership with Yellow Pages Group will simplify life for TELUS customers by putting a rich and easy-to-use source of information about local businesses in the palm of their hand. Not only will they be able to get a phone number and address in seconds, but they will be able to book a restaurant reservation, get driving directions, or perform any number of handy tasks with the push of a button.”
