Certsure

Terry Bedeau, Programme Manager, Certsure LLP
The portal has allowed us to keep our customers up-to-date with downloadable documents which help them to prepare for assessment visits and industry news articles. Its mobile friendly design enables contractors to access valuable technical information while on site, at the touch of a button. Feedback has been extremely positive both from our customers and staff. We have been able to modernise the way in which we work as an organisation. We can now allow our customers to self-serve at a time that is convenient for them. In our industry this is a great benefit as our contractors are out on site during core business hours and catch up on administrative tasks in the evenings.

Certsure provides professional services and certification to over 36,000 contractors across the building services sector. Founded in 2013, it grew from a partnership between the Electrical Safety Council (ESC) and Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA). It operates the NICEIC and ELECSA brands. NICEIC is the UK’s leading voluntary regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry and has been assessing the competence of electricians for over 60 years.

Creating an intuitive portal to improve Certsure’s customer interactions with it.mx customer portal

itelligence delivered a tailored solution based on its flagship SAP certified it.mx product suite. Seamlessly implemented within Certsure’s existing SAP system and incorporating all the relevant master data, the it.mx customer portal provided Certsure with a real-time, online platform.

Improving Customer Interactions

We had previously provided Certsure with ecommerce solutions that enabled the purchase of test equipment, technical publications and work wear from their NICEIC and ELECSA online shops. We were subsequently invited to develop a branded B2B customer portal that would simplify and streamline the management of account details, assessment visits, supporting documentation and other services.

The way Certsure interacted with its customers was an entirely manual process involving high volumes of phone calls and paperwork. Contractors seeking to organise assessment visits and manage account details were devoting time away from their core business to make arrangements with Certsure’s main bodies, NICEIC and ELECSA. This equally placed pressure on Certsure’s own staff who faced high demand for the processing and updating of contractor account details and documentation.

Certsure was seeking a more efficient means by which to manage customer interactions. The aim was to improve responsiveness, modernise the flow of information, keep customers better informed, reduce strain on internal resources and raise the overall standard of customer service.
