Why Computer Troubleshooters

Large Potential Client Base

The pool of potential clients is vast given that virtually all small and medium sized businesses and home offices use technology in a variety of ways including computers, tablets, and networks and depend on them to be working properly. These business owners typically do not possess the skills, the time, or the desire to handle their own computer service, repair, and upgrades and they don't generally have the expertise to implement emerging new technologies such as VoIP, Secure Wireless networking, Mobile Devices, or Telecommunication solutions. This positions Computer Troubleshooters franchises to be an integral piece in one of the fastest growing industries.

Training and Support

We provide training on best practices, business plans, operations management, vendor relationships, continued technical training, marketing & sales training, and other essential pieces as you start your new Computer Troubleshooters franchise. The training does not stop there though, we have made additional training available throughout the year as new technology and vendor relationships emerge. We also hold national conferences so that franchisees can spend time together learning from one another and also from the National Head Quarters on new initiatives that are franchisee driven.
