Epwin Window Systems launched its Excellence as Standard installer programme at FIT 2017 and the impressive sign up rate reflects the value it will give to member businesses. Over 100 businesses took the pledge before and at the show and the number has continued to increase in the time since.
Sharn Samra, Epwin Window Systems’ Marketing Director, said: “Excellence as Standard is so much more than a conventional registered installer programme and the reaction from both installers and fabricators shows that it is just what the industry needs.”
The programme encompasses Epwin Window Systems’ leading systems brands Spectus, Profile 22 and Swish and advocates excellence at every stage of the project from manufacturing through to installation in a consumer’s home.
In order to obtain and preserve EAS Chartered Installer status, installers will need to demonstrate that they adhere to a 12 point charter that shows they are committed to raising standards across the industry and delivering an outstanding customer experience.
In return, they will have access to a wealth of support and tangible benefits designed to drive quality and sales. These can be divided into six areas: effective lead generation, quality products, the EAS Academy, marketing support, partner benefits and the support team.
The programme is being run in partnership with FENSA and members will receive a card branded with both FENSA and Excellence as Standard that demonstrates the connection.
Sharn concludes: “We believe Excellence as Standard will re-define the benchmark in the home improvement industry and the sign up rate to date proves there’s a real appetite for quality. I would urge any installer who shares our commitment to driving standards and success to take the pledge and join us today for the start of a very exciting journey.”
