Background
Wireless Advocates, founded in 2004, is a private partnership between Amerivon and Car Toys, one of the nation’s largest mobile electronic retailers. The company provides wireless telephones and accessories to Costco members from a manned, in-building kiosk in all of Costco’s warehouses in the United States, offering subscriptions and devices from partners Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and AT&T.

Challenges
Wireless Advocates sought to create, staff, and implement a nationwide roll-out of staffed wireless kiosks within Costco warehouses nationwide.

Amerivon Contribution
Amerivon helped create, prepare, and introduce Wireless Advocates to key decision makers within Costco and provides ongoing support leveraging Amerivon’s retail consulting expertise and key headquarter relationships.

Results
Wireless Advocates kiosks are currently operating in every Costco store throughout the country. The success of Wireless Advocates is recognized by utilizing Wireless Advocates employees in a consultative sales approach and by having best in class agent agreements with multiple carriers.
