Trox Launches New SHIELD Protection Program for Chromebooks and Other Mobile Devices

The Program is Part of Trox’s Lifecycle Management Services

Trox, a leading North American provider of education technology and collaboration solutions, today announced the launch of its new proprietary Trox SHIELDSM Protection Program for Chromebooks and other mobile devices.

Trox SHIELD helps educators protect their technology investment by ensuring that mobile devices and remain in circulation. Offering a zero cost of ownership guarantee for devices, Trox SHIELD extends the original manufacturer’s warranty and covers accidental damage. Trox certified technicians repair damaged devices, which allows IT teams to focus on supporting students and teachers.

“Demand for Chromebooks and laptops is at an all-time high for schools. Devices that are damaged in transit puts significant strain on limited budgets and IT resources,” said Sarah Kydd, Chief Operating Officer, Trox. “With many schools offering remote or blended learning, ensuring that students have working devices is more important than ever. That’s why we added Trox SHIELD to our robust lifecycle management services.”

Trox recently opened an 80,000-square-foot facility in Dallas where most of the repairs and shipping for U.S. customers will take place. The facility also serves as the company’s lifecycle management hub for white glove, repair, maintenance and asset disposition.

“A school’s investment in technology is only the start. Trox is uniquely positioned to offer the full spectrum of lifecycle management services schools need to feel assured that their assets are tracked through their entire lifespan for improved accountability and reduced costs,” Kydd added.
