"I would go back to them in an instant." - Ann A.
Click IT is an emerging full-format IT franchise whose products and services cut across typical industry distinctions. This is because Click IT is both a retail shop and a managed service provider (MSP). We fix laptops and setup networks, but we also offer a robust suite of enterprise-level IT services, granting individual customers and organizations access to a level of best-in-class solutions that only large corporations can afford. Together, these two sets of services constitute Click IT’s two-door model.
MAIN STREET ETHOS
Importantly, Click IT nestles its storefronts within neighborhoods and communities, townships and city blocks, integrating into the surrounding marketplace, becoming part of the local geography. We have been able to address grossly underserved markets by emphasizing a concierge-style sales approach from these brick-and-mortar, main street locations.
“YOUR LOCAL IT DEPARTMENT”
Since 2012, Click IT’s company store has thrived because of our dedication to developing systems and revenue models that are streamlined, integrated and scalable. Having built an IT services company unlike any other, we decided Click IT had great potential as a nationally-branded franchise opportunity. The know-how, intellectual property and developmental guidance Click IT now offers its franchisees is unrivaled in its depth and competitive value.

WE ARE THE ONLY RETAIL MSP FRANCHISE
Click IT is the only MSP serving customers from a brick-and-mortar retail space. This hybridized, two-door format uniquely positions us to extend diverse IT services to a steady flow of local consumers and organizations in severely underserved markets.
WE OFFER MORE GUIDANCE
Franchisees receive 20 hours of classroom training at our company store and 20 hours of on-the-job, task-by-task training. Our franchisees learn how to plot a course to sustainable growth and profits through the development of a start-up plan. When it comes to the success of our franchisees, our phoneline is always open. A serial entrepreneur, Founder Al Harlow has decades of experience building businesses and leading teams in the technology and IT space.
WE DELIVER BETTER SYSTEMS
Since 2012, Click IT has developed systems and procedures geared to streamline day-to-day operations. These systems and procedures are indispensable to Click IT’s competitive edge. As a company making use of substantial IT infrastructures ourselves, we aim to exemplify what it means to make IT work for a business. For instance, our “pick it and click it” platform allows franchisees to select products and services by moving through a series of menus, all while on the phone or standing across the counter from a customer.
WE GENERATE THE HIGHEST MARGINS
Offering best-in-class solutions at volume-discounted prices is a recipe for profit. In recent years, the Click IT company store has made better-than-average EBITA on growing sales from a continually expanding customer base. Increasing MSP endpoints and seats for customers is easy when you have systems like those at Click IT.
WE ARE A FULL-FORMAT FRANCHISE
It is not always the case that franchisees gain full access to all proprietary brand materials, expertise, vendor relations and business development strategies available to the franchisor, but that is what we’re offering.
WE HELP YOU GET A LOAN
Funding is essential when purchasing a franchise. Our partners have been funding America’s entrepreneurs for over 35 years, offering a suite of funding options spanning nearly every type of business situation.

Website Designing & Development
The web is now where people go to find things and learn more before deciding to go a step further. People want to see first what you are before even considering going the next step. It is just the way this fast-paced world has developed, and the good news is that you can take full advantage of its power at a much lower cost than just a few years ago.
More specifically, because of plugin technologies and advanced platforms Click IT uses, your new website will be able to be just about anything you can imagine. And better yet, building it can be done at a low price compared to just a few years ago, where functional elements that made a website work had to be built using developers writing custom code.

Frequently Asked Questions
As a Managed Services franchise, Click IT also provides repair services. We provide everything our franchise owners need to begin and operate their business. Insurance is an important component to any business, as this article stresses. Much of what's discussed in this article (found at https://www.insureon.com/blog/how-to-start-a-successful-computer-repair-business) we provide to the awardees of our franchise.
I recently read an article in CIO Magazine that discusses how one organization leader was able to redefine his IT department and make it more focused. They came up with 30 titles, down from 183 out of 250 employees.
It made me realize that what we have done at Click IT is closely related, where we took the major disciplines of IT and broke them down into the major categories, we call divisions because each is a specialty in their own right. The key to our franchise owners' success will not be in hiring the skill set necessary to implement and run these divisions, because we have chosen the best-in-class of all these services, and then have created or use web portals (or a series of systems) in order to implement and manage these services for customers. It works and we have proven it in our model store. Our IT staff is trained in managing these systems, so the skill-set and knowledge needed are all built into our back-end. This is why we say that you don't have to be a techie to own a Click IT Franchise.
You can read that article here: https://www.cio.com/article/3446697/restructuring-it-for-growth.html.
Most IT providers don't hear from a customer until something breaks - and at that point, the problem is often critical and is having a huge negative effect on the customer. We will jump into critical situations and help resolve them, but our goal is to build an ongoing relationship with a customer and become an advisor who provides routine maintenance of their systems so that major problems are avoided.
Yes, you and your business partner can come to training. Click IT encourages a collaborative environment and welcomes all stakeholders who want to be trained.
You will receive the Click IT FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) during our Discovery Process. First our Franchise Development Mangers will discuss the business opportunity and collect preliminary information to determine whether you qualify for the franchise investment (By submitting Personality Traits Test). The FDD outlines in detail the partnership between the franchisor and the franchisees.
Upon completion of the Click IT Discovery Process and signing of the Franchise Agreement the franchise will be awarded. Next is a 3-6 week pre-training period followed by a 2 week training onsite. The last day of training is graduation and the official launch of your very own Click IT franchise.
Click IT owners come from a variety of backgrounds. Sales, technical, project management, marketing, and finance experience is helpful when starting up; however, a strong work ethic and entrepreneurial vision is what truly makes the difference. Click IT offers extensive training in all functional areas to help owners from all backgrounds succeed in creating financial independence.
Click IT owners focus on managing the business. They are primarily responsible for acquiring and developing clients and building a team to deliver premium IT support. These responsibilities are streamlined by Click IT's world class sales, service delivery training, and lead generation programs. Click IT owners manage all financial and operational aspects of the business.
According to our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, the total Initial Investment to open a Click IT store is $119,521 to $218,773, which includes the Initial Franchise Fee of $49,996 for a franchise and additional funds of $20,000 to $50,000 for anticipated working capital. Because the service fees and local marketing expenditure costs are based on gross revenues, the dollar amounts will vary from Click IT Store to Click IT Store. Therefore, service fees and local marketing expenditures are not included in the total initial investment. All expenditures listed in Item 7 are non-refundable, out-of-pocket expenses.
