ShieldX2Plus combines a protective device with a 12-month comprehensive warranty backed by an AM Best "A" rated insurance company covering spills, drops and malfunctions
Spare Backup, Inc. ("Spare Backup")(OTC: SPBU), a provider of data backup and security software for smartphones, tablets and PCs, which is carrier and manufacturer agnostic, announced today that it has officially launched its new ShieldX2Plus comprehensive protection plan for most major smartphones and tablets. ShieldX2Plus combines a sleek, easy to apply protective device with a comprehensive warranty backed by an AM Best "A" rated insurance company. The full offer is now available direct to consumers via its ShieldX2plus.com website.
According to data released by one of the largest insurers of mobile phones in the United States, Americans have spent approximately $7.2 Billion in the last six years on damaged Android phones alone with the most common form of damage coming from drops. Additionally, according to a survey conducted by mobileinsurance.co.uk, approximately 25% of current iPhone users are using a broken or cracked screen for at least six months and many of those claim they can't afford to fix it. With most mobile insurance policies costing close to $100 per year with $99 deductibles or screen replacement services costing between $100 and $200 per screen, fixing a broken screen is a costly undertaking for today's smartphone user.
Spare Backup sees the new ShieldX2plus virtually putting an end to this problem for a fraction of the cost of other bulky and costly solutions on the market today that provide no additional warranty protection. With prices starting at $59.99, users of many of the most popular mobile devices, including iPhones, iPads and Samsung Galaxy 4 will be able to purchase, and easily apply the ShieldX2 to their device making it almost indestructible without the need for a bulky expensive case. In the unlikely event the device is damaged as a result of spills, drops or any other form of damage, it will be replaced for deductibles ranging from only $25 to $50. Each protection plan is backed by an AM Best "A" rated insurance company which handles any claims and fulfillment from start to finish.
Spare Backup is currently in discussions with a number of distribution partners to roll out ShieldX2Plus in Europe and North and South America and anticipates receiving initial orders from several partners in the coming weeks.
Cery Perle, CEO of Spare Backup, Inc., stated: "We are excited to begin the launch of ShieldX2Plus through our new website and look forward to rolling this new 'direct to consumer' model out, and also be able to share this with numerous new and current distribution partners. This product is the perfect solution for a problem that costs consumers and insurance companies billions of dollars per year. We are offering a service and a tangible item at point of sale. This is a big step for Spare Backup as traditionally we have been a 'white label' solution, so we are very excited to use our database and multiple channel partners to market this amazing complete solution. We have seen overwhelming interest from our current partners and we intend to work diligently with them to fully exploit the vast market potential of ShieldX2Plus for the benefit of our company and its stockholders."
