Siemon is developing and enhancing its Digital Lighting Partner (DLP) programme that aims to add value to its global network of installers and contractors.
The programme is designed to deliver business opportunities to a network of Siemon installers by leveraging key industry partnerships and growth in the development of intelligent buildings.
Siemon’s Digital Lighting Partner programme is specifically designed for network and low-voltage (LV) cabling contractors to help them leverage and further expand their knowledge of IP network deployment and become a go-to expert in the PoE lighting space – a market that according to a new market research report by MarketsandMarkes is estimated to grow from $8bn in 2018 to $20bn by 2023.
Subsequently, customers looking to deploy IP-based intelligent building and PoE lighting technologies will be able to connect with low-voltage experts for new projects.
Installers and contractors joining Siemon’s DLP programme will benefit from specialised training with remote or onsite sessions and access to a vast pool of educational resources including webinars, white papers and technical guides. Additionally, members of the programme will have access to Siemon’s intelligent building experts and Technical Services Group who are readily available to support at every phase of the project cycle providing help in solution selling, design assistance, vendor alignment and sales support.
According to Siemon, eligible contractors will benefit from the company’s ecosystem of partners who are market leaders in provisioning services for intelligent buildings. Today, the company is globally aligned with some of the world’s leading PoE equipment manufacturers, lighting vendors, systems integrators, software application developers, managed services providers as well as experienced intelligent building consultants and developers.
Prem Rodrigues, Siemon’s director of sales and marketing for the Middle East, India and the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), said: “We take great pride in our partnerships and we feel this approach creates most value for customers by leveraging the innovative offerings from the ecosystem of partners that we can pool together to offer truly unique solutions for sustainable smart buildings now and in the future. Our digital lighting partners also benefit from joint marketing and branding opportunities which help expand their reach and exposure to PoE lighting and intelligent building projects.”
