To give repair centers and repair customers a more "localized" user experience on The 145, we will be implementing a new platform that provides repair search results, and advertising opportunities, based on region. We will begin with our European customers since they are the second largest region of users after North America.
Here's how it will work:
When a user searches a repair capability on The 145, repair centers that are located within the same region (Europe for example) will appear first in the search results. Companies outside of Europe will appear below in the same search results. We will also open advertising slots for repair centers within the same region, to help give repair customers a more localized user experience.
Once The 145 Europe platform is operational, and functioning properly, we will follow-up with regional platforms for Asia, Africa, and Central / South America.
