Schneider Electric, global specialist in energy management, software and automation unveiled a new range of cable management systems customised for new and modern buildings, during a grand Retail Partners event in Lagos recently.
The engineering design of the products enhances architectural finishing of structures and buildings while facilitating access to electronic devices and appliances.
Aesthetics are improved upon by this range of desktop and flooring units, power poles and perimeter trunking which seamlessly blend into the décor in a sleek and sophisticated way.
With its range of connected products in building automation, UPS, switch gear, as well as motion and presence detectors, Schneider Electric has shown its willingness to drive innovation in energy management.
“In the West African market where the building construction sector is booming, our range of sophisticated products has elicited sizeable inquiries from the hospitality and banking sectors, just to mention a few”, Mr Mojola Ola, the Head of Partner Projects said at the close of the event.
Retail partners of Schneider Electric welcomed the presentation of the iReward program for its APC resellers, which rewards high performance through the issuing of points that are convertible to monetary value for use globally.
Top performing partners were also rewarded for their performance with choice gifts including washing machines, television sets, UPS units and a power bike.
Marketing and Communications Manager, Mrs Viviane Mike-Eze, also used the opportunity to re-introduce the Schneider Electricians Club which was launched earlier in the year at Alaba international market.
“The club is unique in its approach to encourage electricians, fight counterfeit products and promote retail partners as it awards points and gifts to electricians and contractors who buy products from Schneider Electric accredited channels”, she said.
The event was attended by over 300 retail partners including Schneider Electric and APC by Schneider Electric distributors Bolamark, Mikano, Technology Distributions, Multipower, Arihant, Kon-X, Coscharis and Stag Engineering, in a bid to drive synergies between Schneider Electric’s electrical and I.T channels.
