In our attempt to be a progressive agency and keep costs down for our models we have chosen to use iPads or Tablet as the method of choice to present your books. This keeps printing costs down and enables us to have several books available for individual clients and the ability to update your books with new images and even videos as we receive them.
UU Models have the option to purchase an iPad by simply contacting the UU Accounting Department email@example.com. The iPads are refurbished previously owned and the price ranges depending on price we paid for it. They ranges from $165 to $225.
The model is responsible for the iPad issued to them. The cost to repair or replace an iPad will be added to the models account. iPads must be returned to the agency prior to them leaving the NY market. They are instructed to deliver the iPad to someone at the agency.
