“We know that customers are looking for a professional device repair service, so it was important for us to work with a company that places the consumer at the heart of their business.”
Chris Woolnough, UK Managing Director at Assurant, said: “The Pocket Geek Tech Repair network brings the quality and consistency of a high-quality repair together with the speed and convenience of a high-street service.
“It means the customer is reunited with their device sooner and our franchisees can access the necessary tools to scale their business.”
