What Industry Is Click IT In?

As a franchise owner, it will be necessary from time to time to state what Industry your Click IT Store is in. The easiest and most direct answer is that you are in the "Computer Services" industry. But this covers a whole lot. Below is an overview of how the U.S. government breaks down this broad description.

The U.S. government has cataloged a list of industries using two systems: 1) NAICS and 2) SIC. (To see all NAICS & SIC codes, click here.)

As stated above, since Click IT provides a myriad of technical services, the business fits into several descriptions relating to the products, solutions, and services provided on a day-in and day-out basis.

Just enter the word "Computer" into the search bar at NAICS.com to get a listing of many categories Click IT fits into.

Below is a list of some of the categories Click IT fits into, segmented into the two catalogs:


  1.  The technical services sector is part of the professional and business services supersector of Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services: NAICS 54.
  2. 541990 - All Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services.
  3. 518210 - Data Processing, Hosting, and Related Services.
    1. .5415 - Computer Systems Design and Related Services.
      1. In this category, the services are further broken down.
  4. 5418 - Advertising, Public Relations, and Related Services.
  5. Repair and Maintenance: NAICS 811
  6. Industry: 5734—Computer and Computer Software Stores.

While Click IT uniquely provides computer services in a retail-store-setting, we don't consider Click IT store to be a "retailer" in the general sense, where products on display are bought for X and sold for Y. Click IT stores display all products and services offered on TV screens, and typically have very little in stock or displayed on shelves or peg hooks. Additionally, every Click IT store has some unique characteristics where the focus and concentration may vary, but generally speaking, NAICS 54 covers what work is performed and the industry it's in.
