30 Aug Zen’s Plans for Nationwide Operations
We are pleased to announce that in the month of September, Zen Technologies, Inc. (“Zen”) will be operational in 16 states, where we will be able to market and sell our Smart Home products and services to residential customers as part of the Company’s vision to bring smart home technology across the country.
These 16 states represent the first phase of our strategic mass operations campaign, which includes filing as a foreign entity in all states outside of Texas where we intend to do business. Starting in September, Zen will be offering our home automation packages to homeowners and apartment dwellers in: Texas, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Currently, 32 of the 50 states in the Continental U.S. require alarm and security related companies to obtain a security license to conduct installations in their states. We have begun our nationwide licensing effort, starting with those states we have identified as our priority markets. As you may recall from our most recent press release, Zen first became operational in Texas, where we initiated our soft launch in August.
Over the past 30 days of our soft launch, we have been making necessary tweaks to the e-commerce site – www.livewithzen.com – toward perfecting our systems and processes. We have also been working diligently to ensure that the Zen customer service experience is second to none and befitting of the world class company we are committed to building. With this upcoming nationwide roll-out, we look forward to servicing customers across the country.
In addition to our ongoing mass licensing effort, we are also methodically building a nationwide installer network state by state. These installers will be part of our DFY (Do-it-For-You) Concierge Services, where Zen schedules the installations of our systems in customers’ homes.
With regard to our ongoing mass licensing effort, we have submitted applications in several states, and are pending approval. We anticipate that by the end of the year, we will be selling our systems in at least 21 states.
On behalf of the Zen operational team and the greater CHRON family, I wish to offer our gratitude to all of you shareholders who have been keeping up with and supporting us throughout. Soon Alex Rodriguez, our CEO, will be making an announcement regarding special discount promotions for all CHRON shareholders toward purchasing a Zen smart system for your home.
P.S. In the picture above, you’ll see me with our fearless and “beardfull” visionary, AROD.
