Schneider Electric is continuing its commitment to electricians with the expansion of its enhanced and newly titled Electrician Partner Programme.
Formerly known as Ultimate Installer, Schneider Electric’s Partner Programme is dedicated to supporting electricians and is free for professionals working in the residential and light commercial sectors and installers who can demonstrate one of the entry criteria.
With its continuous development of Partner benefits, promotions and digital business tools, the programme helps Partners solve challenges such as striking a balance between time on the tools vs administration in the office, to maintaining skills and knowledge for emerging technology trends as well as the evolving marketing needs of starting a new business through to maintaining an established one.
Benefits for Partners include a welcome pack with complimentary branded workwear, a business listing on Schneider Electric’s Partner locator for end users, training opportunities special promotions and events. In addition, Partners will receive exclusive access to the My Rewards Loyalty Scheme where they can make their spend on thousands of everyday materials go that bit further and reap a reward for choosing Schneider Electric.
Underpinning the Programme and helping electricians save time online is the launch of the new mySchneider Electrician portal. The free portal provides a one-stop shop for product information, pricing, stockist locator, online training and quick links to customer and technical support. Partners also get further access to the loyalty scheme facilities and client support tools at Partner rates.
“We believe the cornerstone of our Partner Programme is to identify and support the needs of electricians and to truly understand the challenges they face day-to-day,” said May Lee, Electrician Programme Manager at Schneider Electric. “Our vision is to be the electrician’s business partner of choice by making their life and the running of their business easier; ensuring we continuously invest, innovate and provide the value and support they really need in the field and online.”
To support the launch of the portal, Partners have the chance to enter the Business Booster prize draw and win up to £5,000 to spend on their business simply by registering and activating their mySchneider Electrician portal. One lucky winner will have the chance to spend the prize money on anything from a new website, to branded workwear, company video, van wrap or van insurance and trade membership fees paid for one year.
“I’ve been really happy with the quality of Schneider Electric products and the Partner scheme benefits are useful extras that set it apart from other manufacturers,” said Jon Darby from Oldland Electrical. “Schneider Electric understands the challenges that many electricians face as small or growing business owners in an increasingly demanding and competitive climate. I have no hesitation in recommending the scheme – there’s no risk and plenty of reward.”
