PATS is an Ohio corporation founded and owned by Sam Brougham.
PATS' start-up costs will include all the equipment needed for the home-based office, legal fees, website creation, and start-up advertising.
The office equipment will be the largest chunk of the start-up expenses. This equipment includes a computer system, fax machine, office supplies. The computer should have at least a 500 megahertz Celeron/ Pentium processor, 64 megabytes of RAM (preferably 128), 6 gigabyte hard drive, and a rewritable CD- ROM for backing up the system. A DSL line will need to be set up as well. PATS will also need some Nextel phones. The advantage of the Nextel phones is it allows two way communication from the base to the cars over cellular frequencies but at a drastically reduced rate.
The office will need some furniture such as a desk, file cabinets. The legal fees are used for the formation of the business as well as for reviewing/generating standard client contracts.
