Dublin, Ohio, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safeware, a leading provider of product protection and extended warranty solutions, has expanded the coverage options available to college students by launching an all-new protection plan for laptops and tablets. This new product offering protects devices that are up to four years old, are not currently covered by Safeware’s product protection, and have already experienced some form of damage or failure.
Over twenty-five percent of all claims reported to Safeware by college students are second, third, or even fourth instances of damage to the same device. The cost of repairs can add up quickly when students or their parents are forced to pay out of pocket for common occurrences like cracked screens or malfunctioning touchpads. Now, Safeware’s Post Repair Program will protect against these instances by offering coverage for additional damage that occurs up to one year after a repair. These plans allow students to have added peace of mind knowing their technology is fully protected.
“The launch of our all-new Post Repair Program has allowed Safeware to expand the availability of product protection to a wider audience of students,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “Nearly half of all claims filed by college students are a result of accidental damages like drops, falls, or liquid spills. These repair costs can be an unexpected ‘crisis moment’ for students on already tight budgets.”
Safeware’s traditional protection plans are utilized on over eight hundred college campuses, demonstrating the vast need for device protection for students. The standard plans protect against mechanical and electrical failure, manufacturer’s defects, and accidental damage from handling on mobile devices. The company’s new Post Repair Program will begin to offer this same type of coverage, but now for devices that have already undergone a repair.
This program highlights Safeware’s commitment to finding new and innovative ways to provide product protection to a larger audience, no matter their financial or educational background. The Post Repair Program allows students who did not purchase any form of product protection when they initially purchased their device the opportunity to protect their technology and their wallets against future incidents.
Having pioneered the technology insurance industry in 1982, Safeware is now one of the most recognized names in product protection. Safeware’s innovative approach to insurance and extended warranty solutions has propelled the company into multiple industries including education, corporate technology, fitness, furniture and appliances. By allowing partners to customize coverage based on their unique needs, Safeware provides best-in-class programs allowing customers to own their products with confidence.
