Smart Scale Co. Unveils World’s First IoT Smart Scale Container, “Stashaweigh™”, at New West Summit

Oakland, California, USA, 2018-Oct-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Smart Scale Co. announced today its October 11th launch at New West Summit of the world’s first IoT smart scale container for the cannabis industry. The patent pending “Stashaweigh™” is an industry-forward weighing device that utilizes the ease of Bluetooth connectivity via a smartphone app to make tracking and saving your cannabis history seamless.

Stashaweigh™ is the brainchild of inventor and entrepreneur Josh Lee, Founder and CEO of Smart Scale Co., which he created in 2017. Lee, in conjunction with a team of technology engineers, has a vision for smart data-sharing, powered by machine learning and advanced AI, that he hopes will shake up the cannabis market.

Lee recalls, “As a technology inventor I saw a lack of technology being built for the cannabis market that matched what was out in the mainstream marketplace. I chose to build the most technologically advanced stash container, the Stashaweigh™, a patent-pending IoT device that integrates a smart scale, connected smartphone app, and water and smell-proof container to manage your usage history by weight, day, time and strain.”

Stashaweigh™ allows its users to track and manage usage history through their smartphones, and gives accurate weight, date, and time feedback while storing precise dosage history during each session. The company will use machine learning and AI to track and predict user habits from around the country that give dispensaries, growers, scientists, and medical professionals tools to more accurately respond to consumer needs and trends.

“Our goal is not only to give consumers a secure device to store their cannabis, but to help them learn more about their usage habits, while giving them tools to manage their cannabis like never before. We are thrilled to launch our product at New West Summit, the industry-leading cannabis technology conference.”

Stashaweigh™ is the first container in a line of expected smart scale devices that make using, selling, prescribing, and growing cannabis smarter and more effective.

uBreakiFix Hits Major Growth Milestone with 500 Stores Sold

ORLANDO, FL, USA, 2016-Nov-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — uBreakiFix has officially sold more than 500 units across the United States and Canada, confirming its status as one of the largest and fastest-growing tech repair brands on the market. More than half of the 500 stores sold are already in operation, and the brand expects to have 425 in operation by the end of 2017.

“This is a huge milestone for our company, and one we could not have achieved without our committed team of franchisees, dedicated corporate office and loyal customers,” said Justin Wetherill, president and CEO of uBreakiFix. “We believe that everyone should have access to reliable, affordable tech repair, and we’re excited for the opportunity to bring our services to new and underserved markets across the U.S. and Canada.”

uBreakiFix has a competitive advantage in the tech repair industry due to its scale, its uncompromising commitment to customer service, its reputation for high quality repairs and its advanced internal systems and processes. uBreakiFix uses a sophisticated portal training system that allows technicians to train in-store and conveniently review techniques as needed, rather than spending time and money to train at the company’s Orlando headquarters.

“Serving our customers starts with thoroughly equipping our team,” Wetherill said. “Every level of the business operates with the customer experience top of mind. Whether it’s a technician, manager or franchisee, if they need something to better serve a customer, our corporate team is always available as a resource.”

“If I have an issue, there are at least five people at the home office at any given moment waiting to help me,” said franchisee Sedrick Bruno, who joined uBreakiFix in the summer of 2010. “The idea is for every customer to leave as a new spokesperson for uBreakiFix.”

Investing in its franchisees has been a top priority for uBreakiFix since the beginning, and all of its original franchisees have grown alongside the brand, with multiple units across markets.

“Justin and the corporate team understand that the key to the company’s success starts at the store level,” said Carlos Marmo, who joined uBreakiFix back in 2008 when it was just a side gig out of Wetherill’s bedroom. “That being said, they treat everyone like family. They truly move mountains to make our lives at the store level as easy as possible. Our supply chain, customer service and internal systems are unmatched, and the corporate team is constantly working to keep it that way.”

The brand’s seamless expansion throughout the continent reflects its commitment to safeguarding both the customer and franchisee experiences.

“As a growing company, Justin and the corporate team have a lot on their plates, yet they never overlook their franchisees or employees,” said Brenda Johnston, a new franchisee whose first location in Fair Lakes, Va. is slated to open in late November. “They always make sure we’re staying well informed on the latest company and industry developments, and they frequently check in with us to see how we are doing. As a new franchisee, the open-door policy is definitely appreciated.”

With 500 stores sold, the brand is more focused than ever on maintaining high standards for repair and customer service across all locations.

“The incredible amount of growth that UBIF has experienced in such a short amount of time is a testament to the brand’s prestige as a whole,” said franchisee Justin Murphy, who has been with uBreakiFix since 2010. “The systems in place create an enjoyable environment for both customers and employees.”
