Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Enhances ExtranetThursday, June 18, 2009
SUWANEE, Ga., June 18, 2009
- Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division has
upgraded its Member Zone Extranet (V2.0) for its Mitsubishi Diamond
Alliance members. The Member Zone Extranet provides Alliance
members with tools and resources that help them organize,
coordinate, communicate and cultivate a successful business.
Through the extranet, members are able to update account information, view training credits and send changes to their zone administrators. A material order form has been added to assist users to quickly order brochures and other sales tools. By logging in, members have access to electronic versions of the latest sales and technical documentation and a marketing kit section that contains downloadable dealer tag formatted files for local marketing efforts, logo and product image files in various formats. Members also get access to a personal direct mail portal where distributors and contractors can create and manage local direct mail campaigns. This tool has proven to be a successful addition to the site, and has been downloaded more than 1,000 times since its launch in April.
"The Member Zone Extranet provides contractors and distributors with a methodized outlet where organization and communication are easily accessible. With this new technology, Diamond Alliance members can foster their growing businesses and serve Mitsubishi Electric HVAC customers more successfully and efficiently," says Bud Nardello, vice president of sales, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC.
Introduced in 2003, Mitsubishi's Diamond Alliance program provides leading accreditation to distributors, dealers, contractors and engineers who complete various levels of system and factory training. Three separate groups make up the Mitsubishi Diamond Alliance: Diamond Distributors, Diamond Dealers (contractors), and Diamond Designers (engineers). Each individual group has different requirements for priority status. Mitsubishi Diamond Dealers™ are independent contractors that have reached the highest level of accreditation from Mitsubishi Electric HVAC and offer consumers the most reliable environmental comfort available with Mitsubishi Mr. Slim® and CITY MULTI® air-conditioning and heating products.
