NABCEP Partners with SolarNexus to Support Solar Industry Best Practices
Software improves quality of sales and operations management for solar contractors
Clifton Park, NY, June 12, 2012 – The North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) and SolarNexus, the leading supplier of web-based solar business management software, have announced a new partnership to help solar contractors improve quality throughout their organizations.
NABCEP’s top objectives include the promotion of solar contractors’ quality and skills, and to increase consumer confidence. SolarNexus helps solar contractors profitably manage projects, organize client data, and collaborate with team members, accelerating the process of selling, installing and maintaining solar systems. With features like milestone tracking and the ability to document and archive critical information, SolarNexus supports best practices throughout the entire project – from the sale, to installation, and over the entire life of the system.
Ezra Auerbach, Executive Director at NABCEP, expressed his enthusiasm about the relationship. “We’re excited to work with SolarNexus. NABCEP is about improving quality throughout the entire solar value chain – not just technical disciplines, but business management as well. SolarNexus helps solar contractors streamline and organize their sales and operations processes, meaning the quality of their operations is vastly improved.”
As part of the agreement between the organizations, NABCEP Certified Installers and NABCEP Certified Technical Sales representatives are eligible for a special discount on SolarNexus licenses. SolarNexus also helps provide a streamlined system that allows contractors that are interested in pursuing the new NABCEP Company Accreditation a more efficient way of organizing much of the information required.
“We’ve found that contractors that pursue NABCEP certification tend to be particularly focused on running their operations well. That’s why SolarNexus is the software solution that so many NABCEP Certified professionals use to manage their businesses,” said Eric Alderman, SolarNexus President/CEO. “This partnership allows us to provide even more value to NABCEP Certified professionals, and will make it easier for them to prepare for NABCEP Company Accreditation.”
