Demand IQ announced the launch of Hero, a canvassing app designed to help solar sales reps sell more projects. Hero generates personalized shade reports and qualification insights to deliver a better at-the-door experience.
“Hero gives sales reps the ability to increase homeowner interest in solar panels while making a lasting impression,” says Austin Rosenbaum, Demand IQ CEO. “We’re thrilled to put the transparency of our online solar shopping tools in the hands of sales reps across America.”
Much of the solar industry still uses the outdated clipboard approach to door-to-door solar sales. Shortcomings of this approach include fragmented data collection, inconsistent experiences, and shoddy internal handoffs between setters and closers.
In contrast, Hero, available on iOS and Android in late April, gives solar sales reps the ability to generate a personalized Solar Preview at the homeowner’s door and includes capabilities for data tracking.
“The key with canvassing is to catch their attention and stand out. If you give the same pitch as everyone else, homeowners are going to tell you to leave. This gives us something unique,” said Myles Vincent, a representative from Fuzion Energy.
