EcoXpert partners not only have a deep understanding of the industry trends that are affecting business operations and business performance, but the expertise to tackle them. Megatrends such as IoT, digitization and urbanization are changing the way your customers will do business in the future.
Think about this for a minute.
Do you see these as challenges?
Do you embrace these as opportunities?
For technology providers, these trends are an indicator of just how much business is out there, waiting for the right partner with the right solution. The question is, are you positioned to take advantage of it? How are you leveraging all you can to grow your business? For example, how do you keep up with best-in-class technology? How do you train your teams? How do you meet the different requirements from your customers to bring an older building into the 21st century?
Position yourself for the future
One proven way is to partner with companies who can be a catalyst to your success. But, not just any company – a company with a channel program that boasts a proven track record, tangible benefits, and solid results.
Schneider Electric’s EcoXpert Partner Program was selected as a CRN 5-Star partner program and featured in their 2017 Partner Program Guide. This is no small feat; only the elite can brag of this achievement (don’t miss the EcoXpert Award Showcase). The EcoXpert network consists of more than 3,000 trained and certified member partners spanning 40 countries, all delivering innovative and modernized solutions to their customers while watching their business soar. And, the EcoXpert network is growing rapidly, offering some of the highest competencies in the market today.

- Improve employee talent. The skill set of your employees is one of your greatest assets, and often the hardest to maintain. Schneider Electric trains and certifies your employees on its EcoStruxure™ technology to drive innovation at every level in power management, building automation, light and room control solutions, data connectivity, vertical markets and more.

- Protect customer investments. Building owners are often surprised when they learn that their investment in Schneider Electric systems from a decade ago or more can still be upgraded and integrated with today’s latest technologies. Just read this success story of one EcoXpert partner who has year-over-year upgraded several facilities of Watson Clinic (USA), This kind of future-proofing helps both customers and partners enjoy long-term success.
- Connect expertise. The pressure is on for solution providers to understand a wide range of technologies and theories…and to deliver all-in-one solutions to their customers. This is where the collaboration within the EcoXpert network makes a big difference.
