'Just Brakes' Selects Demandforce

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Just Brakes, a total car care service provider specializing in brake service, has chosen Demandforce, Inc. to provide its marketing and communications solution for its 135 locations across North America.

Just Brakes will also benefit from Demandforce's customer satisfaction surveys, which will help Just Brakes ensure a consistent and quality experience across their large network of shops.
