Vaillant launch smartphone app

Vaillant has unveiled a new smartphone app designed for installers working with the company’s ecoTEC boilers.

The Vaillant masterTEC app – which recently launched – is designed to benefit installers by providing instant and easy access to a range of tools, documents and registration forms.

In the first instance, the masterTEC app is available – free of charge – for Apple iPhone users. Versions for the iPad and Android devices will follow. The app is available to all installers, but Vaillant Advance members will benefit from additional functionality, including the ability to register an install for its guarantee and Advance loyalty points by simply scanning the boiler’s barcode.

Mark Derbyshire, Vaillant commercial director, said: “This new app is effectively a technical, administration and sales tool that puts Vaillant’s vast resources into the installer’s pocket. I think it will quickly become an essential part of the installers’ toolkit.

“Smartphones have fast become commonplace amongst installers and, as we have seen elsewhere in other markets, this proliferation brings with it an opportunity to improve the way we do things. So, in developing the Vaillant app, we have aimed to create far more than a passive information store. In addition to digital versions of our full suite of sales and technical literature, the app features a savings calculator for installers to use when guiding customers through the purchase decision, and – for Advance installers – the ability to automate much of the registration process. It therefore stands to not simply be a useful tool, but a time-saving one too.”
