  • Seek help on any matter for which IntelliVen may have relevant content but that you are unable to find so we can point you to it or prepare a new post.
  • Provide feedback or suggestions for improvement.

Please like and share content you find particularly helpful.


Enter words or phrases recalled from prior posts in the Search box at  the top-right of every page to search the site for what you seek.

For example, if you have an upset client and remember a post on how to handle a disgruntled client, enter the word “disgruntled” into  the search box and press enter.  The post you are looking for, possibly among others, will likely appear.

Another way to search the site is to go to the Index page and then use your browser search function to look for a key word that might be in the title of the post you seek.
