Customer Satisfaction Survey: Fronius – Friendly, Reliable and Service-Orientated

The Fronius Quality Manager for Germany recently conducted an online survey to assess customer satisfaction. The results speak for themselves: The customers surveyed clearly feel that they have a very good relationship with Fronius.

They gave plenty of positive feedback, as well as making some valuable suggestions for improvement.



The majority of those surveyed described the Austrian-based inverter manufacturer as friendly, reliable and service-orientated. "We are delighted with the positive results from the survey. They show that we're on the right track and that our customers feel they can put their trust in us," said Division Head Martin Hackl.

Fronius Offers the Best Technical Hotline in the Market

More than 57 percent of those surveyed said that Fronius offers the best technical hotline in the market. The next best market competitor was far behind with 24 percent. The survey participants particularly valued the friendly manner and expertise of Fronius' employees. The technical hotline is available for all subsidiaries worldwide1 in the language spoken in each particular country. The international scope of the service has a number of major advantages.

"If, for instance, an installer in France has a problem, it is important that he or she can speak to someone in their native language as quickly as possible. The technical hotline is generally available from Monday to Friday and from 8:00 to 18:00, although these times may vary slightly depending on the requirements in different countries. Our customers have been very positive about the system," explains Ernst Prötsch, Head of International Technical Support.

PC Board Replacement – the Key Advantage of the Fronius Service Partner Program

The Fronius Service Partner program has been established in Europe since 2001 and was launched in the USA at the start of 2011. It provides technical training for PV installers so that they are qualified to service Fronius inverters independently.

For the installers surveyed, this training is the key advantage of the Fronius Service Partner program. Thanks to the program, which is the only one of its kind worldwide, they are able to provide the most rapid servicing in the market. Almost 90% of those questioned said that servicing formed part of their everyday work. The second most important aspects of the program were the immediate access to the latest technical information and standards, and the high quality of the training provided.

Further Improvements in Service Quality

Fronius is constantly looking to improve and optimize its outstanding service quality. The survey results were really encouraging and showed that the current improvement process is on the right track.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
