International Development Services - Yes and no

An IDS Assurance Program representative reached out to Mr. Barbuito on May 24th, 2019 with a welcome letter and instructions for participation in the 2:1 Assurance Program. The email was sent to the same email address that Joseph provided for this review. This email contained an email address, mailing address, phone number and fax number available to the client for contact or concerns regarding the project or Assurance Program. Unfortunately, IDS never heard back from Joseph. The first month for reporting was April 2019, and we’ve yet to receive April or May 2019 reports. Additionally, we start accepting June reports in just one week. Keeping up with report submission allows any potential issues to be caught sooner rather than later.

IDS certainly appreciates reviews and opinions of past and current clients, but feel that this review presents an unfair characterization about the practices of IDS and its personnel. IDS Assurance is sending a reminder letter to Mr. Barbuito in hopes of discussing the program in greater detail. We encourage him to reach out and begin the Assurance Program’s 12-month period of review. We certainly wish our clients nothing but the best, and want them to know we are here for support well beyond the close of the project.

If Mr. Barbuito would rather discuss this matter over the phone, he can certainly reach out to Client Services at 224-676-7565 and ask for Natalie Corrigan.

The question asks if you were happy as their Customer. The answer is both yes and no.

Yes because we obtained a lot of information about our financial structure as well as software set up specifically to our needs. No because they are far to aggressive as to their payment schedule. Their so called 2 to1 return on your investment in them is based on savings which in the least are grossly overstated. We were offered a loan presenetd to us at a rate of 1.018%.

Sounds great ,right? Well it turned out to be 14% paid back weekly. Now, with all this being said, we signed up for it anyway. They seem to capitalize on your fears of losing everything you worked so hard to build seemingly knowing you’ll jump at any opportunity to save your business.

Hindsight is indeed 20/20. Our advise to those considerans these kinds of services, DONT.
