Matrix Warehouse Computers
Shaping the future of IT…

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
The Matrix Warehouse Computers concept was founded in answer to the market need for a reliable computer shop and it was in the face of strong competition that the first store opened its doors to the public in 2000. However, the success of the concept was quickly determined with four more stores opening the following year. As the business grew it became clear that the best way to ensure personal involvement in every store was to franchise the concept and today Matrix Warehouse boasts a countrywide network of over 90 stores.

Matrix Warehouse prides itself on its value-for-money offering, its outstanding support and service and keeping abreast of continual developments in the personal computer market.
The concept under the spotlight
As a competitively priced, complete IT solutions provider Matrix Warehouse outlets engages in the wholesale and retail distribution of complete desktops, notebooks, tablets, PC components, peripherals and software.

In addition to computer hardware and software they offer networking, repairs, upgrades and complete IT solutions for home and business. All components used are registered brand name products, ensuring a high standard of quality in the finished product and a below average failure rate on custom-built computers of less than 0.5 percent.
Serving the needs of the ever-growing segment of personal computer users the Matrix Warehouse target market includes all computer users, whether for personal or business use, as well as anyone requiring a custom-built computer.

The ideal location for establishing a Matrix Warehouse outlet is a well-known address in a respectable shopping centre that offers reasonable rentals, ample parking and high visibility.

A typical Matrix Warehouse retail shop will employ three to five staff members to support the franchisee.
Consider your support
The Matrix Warehouse franchise support team employ their extensive franchising and industry experience to guide franchisees in the running of their businesses.

The comprehensive franchisee introductory training conducted over 28 days at the Matrix Warehouse head office covers all aspects related to running a successful Matrix Warehouse outlet, including product training, business management and marketing techniques.

In an industry that lends itself primarily to destination shopping, consistent advertising is a must. The franchisor consistently engages in advertising promotions that highlight its value-for-money offering and raises brand awareness. The franchisor bulk-buys stock from local and international suppliers and passes the benefit of its group purchasing power on to the franchisees.
