Inverter Drive Systems Ltd (IDS to our friends) have worked in partnership with ABB for over 20 years. Previously called the Drives Alliance, the most recent name to this elite partnership is ABB Authorized Value Provider – or to give it its most recent incarnation “Value Provider”. A badge we are very proud to display wherever we can.
That is all well and good but if you have been searching for an ABB Authorized Value Provider, you might not realise the newest name for the partnership is ABB Value Provider. Now we have updated you on the title, you might be wondering what exactly does being an ABB “Value Provider” mean?
ABB describe the partnership as:
“Sales, support, service and engineering partnerships for growth and profit
The ABB Value Provider Program is a global channel partner program for distributors, wholesalers, panel builders, installers, service providers, system integrators, or power product OEMs. Authorized members of this premium program are called ABB Value Providers.
The authorization program is a procedure to guarantee that the services the customer receives from the ABB Value Providers are on the same leading level as the quality of the ABB products, both globally and locally. Once authorized as ABB Value Provider, our partners have in-depth knowledge of local markets and are conversant with the defined ABB products and processes.”
ABB Authorized Value Provider
For IDS it means we have access to world-class products, unrivalled access to technical advice, preferential rates for our customers, support from a dedicated team of experts and continuous training and development.
To be an ABB Value Provider, we are audited by ABB, our engineers and sales team are trained to stringent and exacting standards and need to successfully complete assessments for us to maintain our coveted status.
