Why we feel our industry should be considered:

Operating in a newly created mobile-lifestyle service category,  benefit from the following:

  • A nearly ubiquitous customer base (consumers and businesses)
    • The number of internet-connected devices world-wide currently stands at five billion, but over the next four years that number is expected to quadruple
    • Cisco has estimated that by 2015 there will be 20 billion internet-connected devices
    • According to the United States Census Bureau, the world population is currently estimated to be at 6.92 billion; Cisco’s prediction means that there will be more than 2 internet-connected devices for every person on the planet (7 per person in the US)
  • Dependence on “connected devices” driving the demand for “instant repair”
    • The United States is especially smitten with the iPad, with 2.1% of all Web traffic in America being conducted via the portable device; iPad’s share of Web traffic has grown by roughly 10% each month since March
    • The upward trend illustrates the fast-growing Web usage for mobile devices, which now account for 5% of all worldwide internet traffic, and 8.2% of Web traffic in the United States

You should be considered:

  • Business model with numerous revenue streams
    • Repair services for all types of personal electronics devices
    • Accessories designed to enhance the mobile experience
    • Protection services for the device, its data and the user’s identity
  • Recession resistant business – a struggling economy enhances the attractiveness to services
    • Choosing repair as an alternative to the ever-increasing cost of replacement is not dependent on household income
    • The customer base covers the entire socio-economic spectrum from affluent to lower income consumers and businesses large and small
  •  Lifetime Warranty offered on all repairs (except liquid damage)
  • The concept is predicated on several fundamental operating pillars:
    • Provide a low investment threshold
    • Operate in a low cost retail environment providing a rapid break even while yielding high operating margins
    • Manage a low employee base per unit (usually no more than 4 over time)
