INDEPENDENCE, Ohio – Feb. 16, 2016 – PRLog — Computer Troubleshooters is delighted to announce that Geeks On Call will be joining their global franchise family during the first quarter of 2016. These previously independent computer service franchises have been owned by Merrymeeting Group since January 2012.
Kim Weinberger, Director of Operations for Computer Troubleshooters and Geeks on Call, “I have had the pleasure of working with franchise owners in both organizations over the last four years and I am thrilled that they are joining forces as one larger and stronger organization. Both groups are filled with experienced franchise owners and highly skilled technicians who are dedicated to providing clients with the industry’s leading technology solutions and the best possible customer service. This is truly a “win-win” solution for everyone involved.”

By joining the two technology networks under the Computer Troubleshooters’ name, the combined organization will be able to deliver expanded technology solutions and customer service options. The larger organization will also offer enhanced internal support to franchise owners through new programs that will also benefit both brands’ numerous clients.
“The strategic merging of these two technology services franchises will benefit both brands’ clients by increasing the number of Computer Troubleshooter locations by nearly 60%. Existing clients for both networks will continue to receive the highest level of service from technicians they have come to know and trust. New clients will be attracted by the increase in convenient locations and franchisees will receive additional network support through the merging of these two franchise networks,” added Josh Sevick, President of Computer Troubleshooters.
