I don’t know about you guys, but this right up my street (and may actually save me a few hours a month where I inevitably end up giving tech support to friends / family).
It’s a first world problem, but one that has touched and frustrated us all at one time or another – the dreaded blank or cracked screen on a smart phone, tablet or laptop. To the rescue comes FIXIY.ie, a new Irish business that launched today with the simple promise of saving consumers time and money on smartphone and broken technology device repair. The company’s new Mobile FIXIY Tech’s can come to your home or office and repair most broken devices within 30 minutes. According to FIXIY, on average customers can save up to three hours commute and wait time by choosing the local FIXIY Tech repair option.
FIXIY, which is the brainchild of Dublin born entrepreneur Shane Fay, offers quality tech repair services at a competitive price, backed up by a first class 12 Month warranty and after sales support. The company provides a low cost, mobile repair service, a drop-in service, do-it-yourself repair kits from as little as €19, as well as a franchise programme that teaches participants how to repair technology devices and effectively start their own FIXIY repair business for their area.
FIXIY Franchise Model
FIXIY is currently recruiting for technicians across the country to expand its service network and has plans to expand the service to the UK later this year. FIXIY expect to have over 300 Techs in the UK and Irish market within the next 3 years. FIXIY Franchisees are provided with everything they need to quickly become The Local Expert on iPhone, Galaxy, iPod, iPad, PC and MacBook repairs. The “business-in-a-box” model allows participants to immediately begin earning money, and provides full training, ongoing support, and a customised marketing plan that enables them to maximise the return on their investment. FIXIY franchises cost €1,000, with a monthly support fee of €120.
According to Shane,
“Outside of Dublin there has been no reliable, speedy repair service for technology devices. Typically, the solution on offer has been a centrally located drop in repair service or ‘collect and return’ repair service which usually takes three to five days. The FIXIY franchise programme changes that, and takes advantage of the gap in the market with a soon to be established national network of top class locally based repair technicians.
“The franchise programme is all about empowering people to start their own business, and become the ‘go to tech repair person’ in their local area. The programme is ideally suited to anyone who is looking to start their own business, generate extra income, or anyone currently unemployed with a background in repair, engineering, tradesmen or customer support. Once somebody is mechanically minded, good with people and motivated we can teach them”
Shane’s innovative business model is already launching Start Up businesses up and down the country, with FIXIY Techs recruited in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Meath, Kerry and Leitrim. With over 2 Million Smartphones, 1.2 Million Tablets and 1 Million computers in Ireland, business is booming and the franchise option offers great potential to anyone looking to earn additional income.
