Schneider Electric has developed an online portal to connect with electricians and to help electricians manage and grow their businesses.
The company’s Partner Portal for electricians features a host of online tools designed to make projects and jobs easier and, it also serves as a network which provides access to information on the latest products and energy management solutions.
“We are very excited about the impact that this platform will have, not just on the businesses of South African electricians, but on the economy as a whole,” says Zanelle Dalglish, electricians manager at Schneider Electric.
The easy-to-use platform provides detailed resources for the efficient running of an electrician business. It includes sections on business development such as: Promote My Business, Grow My Business, Finance My Business, My Business Partners and I am a new electrician. Additional categories include: Quote & Plan, Finding Products, Electrical Installation Guide and Technical Support.
In addition, specialised features on the portal provide access to practical tools tailored for electricians to grow and manage their businesses. Industry access links are also available on the portal to ensure that partners stay connected and to offer a one-stop service through the online portal that meets all electrican’s needs.
Online training courses are designed for all types of electrical businesses and are continually refreshed to keep up with any industry changes; such as product and regulatory developments.
“The key objective now is to ensure that we work with various electrician stakeholders in South Africa to ensure maximum uptake and ongoing usage of the Schneider Electric Partner Portal for electricians,” Dalglish says.
She concluded by stating that Schneider Electric wants every single electrician from small, medium-sized to large electricians to register and use the portal to gain maximum benefit through the comprehensive electrician’s offer available on the portal.
