SALT LAKE CITY, May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InvisibleShield®, a ZAGG Inc (ZAGG) brand and the leading global innovator in screen protection, today announced a strategic partnership with CPR Cell Phone Repair, the largest and fastest growing repair franchise in North America. The partnership will align more than 430 CPR franchise locations in the U.S. and Canada with ZAGG franchise locations as premier destinations for same-day cell phone repair and refurbishing services, InvisibleShield screen protection sales, and InvisibleShield warranty replacement services. CPR Cell Phone Repair offers budget-friendly repairs for a variety of gadgets including cell phones, tablets, and laptops, with complimentary repair estimates and limited lifetime warranties.
“InvisibleShield is focused on producing industry-leading device protection and delivering world-class customer support,” said Steve Bain, general manager for InvisibleShield. “As the market leader, we work hard to anticipate our customers’ needs, and our partnership with CPR Cell Phone Repair is another significant step toward ensuring premium screen protection is now more convenient than ever.”
Currently, InvisibleShield customers may visit one of 100 ZAGG franchise locations in the U.S. and Canada, call customer care, or visit InvisibleShield.com to process warranty claims. With the addition of CPR franchise locations as InvisibleShield authorized warranty centers, customers may now process their claims at more than 530 physical locations, which will also sell InvisibleShield screen protection for smartphones, tablets, and watches. CPR franchises will focus their on-shelf InvisibleShield inventory to support the best-selling mobile devices, but will also have the capability to instantly produce a variety of protective films for more than 4,000 mobile devices through the InvisibleShield on Demand (ISOD) system. ISOD screen protectors are virtually indestructible, and are engineered with military grade materials that were originally designed to protect military helicopter blades.
“We are delighted to announce the partnership between InvisibleShield and CPR,” said Josh Sevick, CEO of CPR Cell Phone Repair. “ZAGG’s desire to create a national network of warranty service centers for its InvisibleShield product line is a perfect fit for CPR’s vision of a carrier and OEM agnostic same-day device repair network. We’re excited to help InvisibleShield improve on its position as the clear market leader in the screen protection category, and we look forward to welcoming select ZAGG-branded retail stores to the CPR franchise family.”
Each CPR franchise location will support the ISOD program, offer limited lifetime warranties on all InvisibleShield inventory sold, and will have access to all screen protector inventory available to ZAGG franchisees by the fall of 2018.
