About InfoTel Multimedia
Infotel Multimedia is the Thompson-Okanagan’s leading provider of marketing and advertising services. We design and host affordable websites for local businesses.
InfoTel Multimedia is a locally owned and operated directory (both online and print) servicing the North Thompson (Kamloops & area), Shuswap (Salmon Arm, Revelstoke & area), Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, and South Okanagan areas of British Columbia, Canada. InfoTel Multimedia has been in the publishing business since 1989 and has been a member of the Canadian Independent Directory Association since its inception in 1998.
By providing an innovative source of information for businesses and residents, InfoTel Multimedia is a leader. It is the goal of the company to become a standard of excellence in the directory publishing industry by providing quality that has been tailored to the advertiser and the end users.
InfoTel Multimedia, originally known as the leading provider of telephone directories serving nearly a half-million residents in its markets, has in recent years focused on delivering higher sales for area businesses by providing local news coverage for residents via its InfoNews.ca website.
While the company maintains both printed and on-line directories, InfoTel’s core business is designing and hosting affordable websites and local news coverage relevant to area residents and businesses.
InfoTel is an independent company based in the Thompson-Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada. Our online presence includes a business, residential and government listings directory. We offer responsive website design and development, professional copy-writing, and custom e-business services. We also produce printed yellow page directories for the region.
CEO Bonnie Derry graduated from City University, Seattle, Washington with an MBA. Bonnie was recently ranked 27th in the 13th annual PROFIT W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Women Entrepreneurs by PROFIT: Your Guide to Business Success magazine.
InfoTel continues to be a true success story as is evident from the many awards received, including the Canadian Independent Directory Association’s Publisher of the Year for 2002, 2004, 2006 & 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2016.
“ In 1996 I purchased a failing business and held fast to my belief that if you have the best product in the marketplace, you will succeed.” said Bonnie.
InfoTel has carefully considered and researched the market areas in which it publishes its directories. The directories are based on shopping districts, communication zones of residents and commercial dealings of the area’s population rather than following the regions established by the provincial utility. Each residential address receives a directory and businesses are polled to see how many books are required. Hotels, motels and resorts also receive a book for each rental room.
Since 2012, InfoTel News Ltd. has brought local news that truly matters to online readers in our communities. Vernon, Penticton, Kamloops and Kelowna are distinct communities, each with its own perspective, successes and challenges—they can’t be served well through a single page. We have distinct sections for each city and reporters and photographers on the ground bringing you breaking news, weather, trends, local politics, crime and sure, even some fun. Together our reporters and editors have more than 30 years experience and follow the highest standards of journalism.
