What prompted the partnership with Schneider Electric?
The right partners are important, but they are also crucial to our long-term success. They play an important role in developing the products and solutions that we deploy for our clients.
When we founded Triton Concepts, Schneider Electric was the obvious choice as our partner. Not only were they looking to expand their install base in Southern California, but they were also focused on growing the markets in which we intended to build our business. Together, we have a shared vision in our geographic and vertical market focus.
How have you sustained growth over the last 2.5 years?
We focus on building a great team and then trust them to deliver. It’s easy to select the best products but assembling a team that is capable of executing the work and supporting clients is a tougher task. We empower our people by investing in training and providing opportunities for them to gain experience outside their comfort zone. We have found that if our team is constantly developing, then our business continues to evolve at a rapid pace.
What differentiates you from the competition?
Many of our competitors have failed to adapt to the speed of our industry, and we see them working within the confines of systems and processes that are no longer fit for purpose. Technology continues to advance, and clients expect us to react quickly, so we avoid implementing processes that add little value and slow us down.
How has Schneider Electric’s product portfolio helped you achieve success?
We addressed this earlier, but one of the most challenging aspects of our business is building the right team. Schneider Electric’s products lead the industry in terms of functionality and ease-of-use for new users. This has enabled us to quickly train new hires on the EcoStruxure™ platform. Whether we hire a seasoned engineer or industry outsider with no experience, we have utilized the classes within EcoXpert University to develop our team. This is great for productivity, as the ramp-up time for new hires is considerably less than we have experienced with other manufacturers.
We are excited for the future and look forward to our continued partnership with Schneider Electric. There is no doubt Schneider Electric’s EcoXpert Partner Program assisted our launch and helped us make an immediate impact in Southern California.
