Shred Nations is a platform business model. Similar to Uber, Airbnb and parts of Amazon, we create value by generating the means of connections among shredding customers and our shredding partners.
Shred Nations connects shredding customers across North America with shredding providers operating in more than 1,000 local markets.
Technology, big data, and the internet all drive Shred Nations. This allows us to quickly meet customer demands and deliver responsive, exceptional customer service. Our platform consists of a community of shredding customers and a community of shredding partners and drop-off centers. We receive more than 400,000 inquiries annually and connect approximately 200,000 customers to service providers. This task would not be possible without state-of-the-art technology.
Shred Nations provides its partners with shredding customers at greater than 99% accuracy, replaces any defective referral, and is a service provider’s easiest, lowest cost, and fastest way to grow.
Shred Nations is . . .
- guided by core values and empowered employees
- works continuously to improve the value we offer customers and partners year-after-year
- believes, with the collaboration of employees, in creating the best place to work for the best people
- shares profit with employees and our community – including offering an annual scholarship
In 1999, Shred Nations began using the internet as a tool to enhance business. At this time, the internet was an anomaly. Now it dominates the market for goods and services.
Shred Nations has spent more than twenty years perfecting the way we deliver services to our shredding partners. We help them grow by providing our systems that use algorithms and artificial intelligence. Shred Nations is continually learning the evolving intricacies of the internet in order to provide the highest quality service to our partners.
The platform business model is known as “the most powerful business model” and known to be almost impossible to create.
We feel fortunate to have evolved through trial and error and are delighted that we can help so many customers, shredding companies, drop-off centers, and employees prosper.
