Contact Channels & Help Center Improvements

While we highly value our customers, aiming to better attend them we have just made several improvements in our contact channels.  Now, through a well-structured and yet concise contact form, customers can reach out to us in a faster and more objective manner and get answers from our team more quickly.

Also, we restructured and increased our Help Center, so that customers can more easily find answers to questions they may have about our offerings.

Methodology Improvements & Data Update Schedule

After weeks reformulating Intratec data gathering/processing routines, we are proud to announce improvements in Intratec methodology!

From now on, Intratec data updates will be sooner: instead of receiving data in the second or third week of any given month, you will now receive data until the end of the first week of each month.

Also, subscribers can now check our new Data Update Schedule - this schedule details, for the upcoming 12 months, when the data will be collected, processed and, most importantly, published.

Two-Factor Authentication: an Extra Security Step

While we at Intratec take security very seriously, we are always improving it by applying the best practices and security standards.  In this context, we are glad to announce a Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) as the most recent security improvement implemented.

This improvement consists in an extra security step on login: now you will be asked a verification code, sent to you via email whenever you try to log in to Intratec website from a new IP address.  This will protect your account from unauthorized logins, even if you accidentally expose your password.
