Why Click IT is Better and Different
We Are the ONLY Retail MSP Franchise
Doing Managed Provider Services from a Retail Store Setting
Our unique market position of local recognition sets us apart and earns our franchise owners walk-in business with less work. A Click IT store is your "Local IT Department".
As an emerging franchise business opportunity, Click IT is NOT a "computer repair shop", although we do offer computer repair. Click IT stores thrive because typical computer repair shops only offer a fraction of the solutions badly needed by the targeted market. A Click IT store emphasizes providing managed computer services that also do computer repair, in a concierge-style setting. This is a very distinctive difference. In our stores, our added value is in providing computer IT services, products, and support, including new computer sales, and repair for both residential and commercial customers.
Our company store opened in 2012 and we operated it for 10 years before deciding to share our knowledge with others. Our emphasis now is on providing an amazing recurring revenue model for our franchise owners, offering recurring revenue solutions to both consumers and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with over 12 categories of best-in-class solutions and over 100 menu solutions.
We make technology work better for both home and business owners, with an emphasis on helping them decrease their stress, reduce expenses, and improve the bottom line. We operate on a business model that fulfills the growing need to use an outsourced vendor for computer management, typically outside their internal core competencies. Our hybrid IT management approach makes Click IT more affordable than any competitor while also offering consistent monthly rates. Our subscription rates save customers money and time by allowing them to effectively budget and reduce IT expenses in the long run. No need to be a geek; Click IT will train and empower the right candidate who fits our criteria. An investment in Click IT is a smarter investment in your future.
Low Competition in an Unsaturated Market
Click IT addresses the needs of a huge market with few competitors. We have figured out how to affordably offer small businesses the kind of IT service and support large ones enjoy. Click IT is not just an IT service provider; at our company store we serve as the trusted business advisors and consultants for hundreds of clients, so they never have to go it alone. Now an emerging franchise, Click IT equips new franchise owners with powerful tools developed through strong relationships with our best-in-class technology suppliers.
As markets and technology continue to grow and evolve, at Click IT, we pledge to work hard staying ahead of the technology curve and introducing new revenue streams to our network as it begins to build. Our best-in-class products and services are vetted by a team working behind the scenes to ensure customers receive only the best possible solutions. As a company, Click IT has been operating for 8 years with a recent surge of growth in sales while introducing itself as a new franchise to locations nationwide. As a franchise owner, you can feel confident in knowing we will be around to provide you with support in selling IT products and services for many years to come.
