We’ve got a lot to talk about as we have made some simple changes in our Apple One to One School Repair program – if you didn’t already know, we offer repairs to schools around the country to assist in their efforts to maintain student devices.
Not only is this something that we have been doing for over 8 years (even before the One to One Program was released) and we’re happy to report that we are providing services for even some “Apple-Distinguished Schools” as time has progressed.
Why? It’s a matter of economics. There are scenarios that Mission Repair is a far better fit for some school districts than AppleCare. Apple has done a good job of selling units and service programs, but they don’t do something that Mission Repair does, and that’s offer a better price on a service for a unit that has already been repaired once before.
It’s called our Got Repair program, and it’s the shining light that schools are looking for.
The best part about it is that even if you use our services as an “end user”, you get the Got Repair benefit automatically on our screen repairs. Just check it out on our site, and you may know why Mission Repair stands above the rest.
It’s that time of year again, and at Mission Repair we’re getting the sense that school is starting up again. It’s not because my wife is a teacher 😉 it’s because we are getting calls from IT departments all over the country ready to spin up their repair programs.
Since a lot of schools are now Apple 1 to 1 (meaning that every student is “issued” an Apple device like an iPad or MacBook Air) it’s becoming more common for schools to send their devices into Mission Repair for service than using AppleCare. In fact, we’ve successfully saved schools hundreds of thousands of dollars by helping them understand that purchasing AppleCare on on those devices just doesn’t add up. While most districts do buy the extended warranties, at the end of the day it’s not “natural failures” (that AppleCare covers) that are the issue. It’s kids dropping the devices and cracking them.
Yes, a lot of our business comes from schools around the nation. Today, we signed up a new school from the State of Washington that has mountains of iPads that they want to begin repairing the first week of school next month. If you’re a school IT director, are looking for the best repair center in the country (in my opinion!) and need to use Net 30 Purchase orders for your repair program…click here for more information. We’ll be glad to help you out.
Thanks, have a good afternoon and don’t forget to get those school supplies purchased soon!
