MARIETTA, Ga., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital learning has infiltrated the classroom and lecture hall with learners and teachers embracing these new educational practices. A recent study by EdTechXGlobal and IBIS Capital, predicts the global education technology market will grow 17 percent to $252 billion by 2020.
Staymobile®, a service company providing electronic repair, accessories and protection for businesses and consumers, has capitalized on the widespread popularity of technology in the classroom and is leading the category with more than a million and a half devices under management and protection in the K-12 and Higher Education spaces.
"We understood long before most companies in our industry that the days of paper and pencil in the classroom were over. The trend toward digital learning is here to stay and we've been able to grow our company by strategically partnering with K-12 and Higher Ed schools," says Chuck Morrison, president and chief marketing officer of Staymobile. "When we sit down with teachers, administrators and education leaders their pain points always come back to technology. We offer service and protection plans that are second to none in the industry and can eliminate these pain points for schools."
The Little Ones with Big Technology Needs
Public schools in the United States now provide at least one computer for every five students. Staymobile has strategically partnered with schools in the communities it serves to offer a range of affordable services including comprehensive, all-in-one protection plans and per repair service contracts. Additionally, the company provides protective cases and screen covers and cleans and wipes devices of previous data for its K-12 partners. These services ease the burden of technology issues for teachers and faculty.
"Staymobile has provided our district with quality service and repairs on a timely basis. The convenience of having devices picked up by a Staymobile rep saves us time and allows us to spend more time on other tasks," says Roman Gaddis, Executive Director of Technology for Dawson County School System in Georgia. "Without a repair services partner, our faculty would spend far too much time fixing and cleaning their technology and not enough time using it as a tool to teach and increase efficiencies in our school."
Technology is King on Campus
According to a recent survey by VitalSource Technology and Wakefield Research, 48 percent of college students say their learning is enhanced by technology that helps them collaborate digitally with students from their classes, or from other schools. Staymobile helps foster this collaboration and universities across the country are taking note. The company opened locations on more than 15 college campuses in 2016 and has the goal of opening an additional 100 locations in the next 2 years.
Staymobile offers students and faculty on-site repair of all mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, game consoles and additional electronic devices. Its certified in-store technicians are highly qualified to repair various issues, including water damage, cracked screens and dead batteries, with same-day turnaround on most services, many within one hour.
"As students increasingly learn on the go, they demand that their colleges and universities offer technology repair services. That's where Staymobile comes in. We have a flexible footprint that allows us to set up a location in virtually any size bookstore or technology zone on campus," says Brian Hutto, CEO of Staymobile. "College students have been incredibly loyal to our brand and we feel we are in position to capture market share in 2017."
In addition to K-12 and Higher Education customers, Staymobile offers consumers and businesses on-site repair of all mobile devices including smartphones, tablets, game consoles and additional electronic devices.
