iPads + School in session = Cracked Glass

Good morning!

There’s a reason that both teachers and students love the iPad. It enables endless opportunities to create hands-on, customizable learning experiences. I’ve seen it first hand after visiting several schools in the area and watching children in the classroom use the iPad like it was always a part of their life. And now it is.

We’ve found many schools with a need for quick and professional service on cracked iPad screens; most institutions implement a fee on the parents for damages; others do not. While many schools are moving to the Apple “1 to 1” program starting as early as elementary school, the repair prospect is an expensive one for both the students and the schools.

This is where Mission Repair steps in. We offer customized programs for schools in the Kansas City area and across the nation. We don’t have restrictions or “deductibles”, and you don’t need to buy a service plan. When you’re in need, simply give us a call or set up a repair online. We will have your iPad up and running and back into your hands in no time. Have you ever seen a 7 year old with an iPad? I have…and I’ve also seen what can happen with a simple “slip, drop or oops!”.

Mission Repair is on hand and standing by.

To Schools: We accept Educational Purchase Orders, and we have been for almost 8 years. We are here for you!

Take care, Ryan

Is the iPad “MEGA” on it’s way?

Hi there,

I’m not sure if you follow the rumor mill or not when it comes to Apple products, but there’s a buzz about a 12.9″ iPad that may hit this year. Apple’s iPad kickstarted the tablet craze and recent rumors suggest the world’s most valuable company has an even bigger one on the way.

According to an online report from Taiwanese blog “DigiTimes”, components for a 12.9″ iPad are being readied for Apple to take delivery in September.

However, because demand for tablets is slowing, the technology giant has lowered its initial supply order.

So while a larger iPad could be available by the end of the year, you might not necessarily be able to get hold of one – Apple had a similar delay for the launch of the Apple Watch, although that was due to not being able to get hold of enough components in the first place.

Apple’s current iPads are either 9.7-inches (iPad Air and iPad Air 2) or 7.9-inches (iPad mini 3 and iPad mini 2).

It’s exciting to think that the electronics giant will be adding a new form factor to the lineup, which means that we here at Mission Repair will be adding it to our iPad repair lineup as well.

I remember thinking that no one would want a huge iPhone like the iPhone 6 Plus; but clearly I was wrong. So I’m going to take a new approach to the new “iPad Mega” (that’s what I’m calling it anyway) and say that I’m POSITIVE that consumers will love it. I’d suggest just keeping it out of the hands of your 3-year old. . .it’s going to take two GROWN UP hands to handle this one! We’ll see…

Happy Tuesday, Ryan

Welcome our newest employee, Ian.

Good afternoon- if you’ve called into the Mission Repair toll-free number lately, you may have reached Ian; our newest superstar here at our Olathe location.

Ian comes from a customer service background, and I’m not kidding, he’s hit the ground running. The first day he was answering calls and jumping right in. I’m impressed.

You can email him here:

ian@missionrepair.com

Or the next time you call into the Mission Repair main line, you might get him on the phone. Ian has plans to move into the tech department at some point which I am truly looking forward to.

Thanks Ian, welcome to the team. It’s great to have you.

Take care, Ryan

I just realized that October is half way through.

Good morning again.

I don’t want to be a “glass is half empty” kind of guy. But we are at the mid-point of October and the gears are really spinning up here at Mission Repair. This is the very beginning of our “busy season” which lasts through the end of January so we are doing everything we can to prepare the business for this holiday season.

But it’s already October 15th. Yikes.

All of the big holidays are approaching quickly: Halloween is right around the corner. Then Thanksgiving. Then Christmas. Next would be New Years. Then most importantly it’ll be my birthday. Alright, that’s not a big holiday to some of you, I can understand that. In fact, once I hit the big “4-0” I’ve not been looking forward to my birthdays as much myself!

We’ve got big plans at Mission Repair this year to take care of business. In fact, we’ve sold a record number of iPad glass repairs this month and we’re not even half way through the month. That’s because if you didn’t notice, we lowered our price on the iPad 2 screen repairs to an all-time low. Stock in hand and right now at a 14% savings (no coupon needed) we are completing iPad screen repairs as fast as they are coming in.

Tidbit: Did you know that 32% of all iPads in consumers hands right now are iPad 2?

It’s ok if you still not in the market for an iPad repair. If you’re waiting for other specials from Mission Repair, hang in there. We’ve got a long list of services and specials coming down from the top (that’s me) over the next several weeks and months.

Give us a call if we can help 866-638-8402.

Take care, Ryan

Looking for a coupon?

Hello everyone- we sent out a newsletter yesterday to our local region, and if you missed it, we’ve got the special right here for you.

mission

We are offering 20% off on any repair now through Friday at closing time (which is 7:00 pm, CST) if you visit our location in Mission, Kansas. The address is 5604 Johnson Drive, Mission Kansas 66202, and you can get directions here.

Please note that this is NOT valid on mail-in orders; don’t worry for all of our customers in other areas of the country we will make sure to offer you a special shortly. Rather, this is valid on new walk-in repairs at our newest store. Why? We are celebrating the “near” completion of the downtown district redesign and if you remember the “old down town”, you’ll see that the streets have been improved, the sidewalks are wider and well designed, and the parking is much better. This store of ours is downtown in a great location and now you don’t need to walk through a construction zone to get to it 😉

It’s a customer appreciation sale and all you need to do to get this special pricing is print out a copy of this blog (or the newsletter if you’re a subscriber), walk in to our Mission Repair Express location now through tomorrow evening at 7:00pm, show your customer service representative this special and place your repair order to receive the 20% discount.

Thank you.

Ryan
