Business briefs for Saturday, Dec. 2

Qwest Communications announced the addition of enhanced category searches for wireless customers to its directory assistance services. These enhanced services give wireless customers the ease of accessing important and useful information over-the-phone. Enhanced services are available to wireless customers in Qwest’s 14-state service region. Services include: driving directions, horoscopes, movie listings, ski conditions and weather.

Wireless callers who are interested in receiving enhanced information will hear a voice prompt offering these new features and after hearing the name and location prompt for directory assistance will be immediately transferred to a Qwest agent who can instantly access the information they need. In addition to these enhanced services, Qwest directory assistance callers can now find nationwide business listings based on the type of business and location rather than requesting a specific business listing. This new service is available to landline and wireless customers in Qwest’s 14-state service region and to Qwest customers nationwide. There is no additional cost to customers for both the category search and the enhanced services other than the standard directory assistance charge.
