NORFOLK, Va., July 1 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Geeks On Call Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GOCH), a premier national provider of professional IT solutions to small business and residential customers through its trade name Geeks On Call, announced today the opening of a Corporate branch office in Arkansas, serving Benton county.
The Arkansas branch will be the fourth Company-owned location established, beginning with the Phoenix office in March of this year. Company-owned territories are not only a way of building out the national footprint; they are also areas where sales and marketing techniques can be tested for future use in franchise locations. Owning Corporate branches in a territory creates market research possibilities for Geeks On Call and will provide measurable results, allowing for a standardization not possible with locations owned by franchise partners. The branch will be staffed by the same level of industry-certified, trained and screened IT professionals as are employed at all Geeks On Call franchises.
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Rich Artese said, "The Arkansas market is key to our strategic expansion plan in that it allows us to strengthen our presence in the South Central United States. We look forward to seeing what new possibilities open up there."
