Agents and Distributors Training Week 2016

Sep 23, 2016
On Monday 5th September 2016 we welcomed our global network of agents and distributors to our head offices in Manchester, UK, to take part in a week of comprehensive product and technical training.
 
We were keen to provide our partners, many of whom provide local test services, with training through practical demonstrations, workshops and presentations. They received hands-on experience with our latest equipment including HVPD Kronos® Portable and Permanent Monitors, and the PDS Insight™ Machines unit, the only handheld on-line partial discharge test unit capable of testing rotating machines using pre-installed high voltage coupling capacitors.
 
As well as training on all product aspects, the training week gave us an extra opportunity to further educate our agents and distributors on HVPD's best practices for customer support, which we consider crucial to our overseas business success. We take pride in ensuring customer satisfaction in every country we serve.
 
Rachel Stratton, Commercial Director, said:

"It was a pleasure to see so many of our agents and distributors attend another successful training week at our head office in Manchester, UK. As we continue to grow and see the release of more innovative technology, it is important that these training weeks are implemented to keep everyone up to date on our full range of on-line partial discharge products and services. We look forward to the next session and hope to see new faces."
During the week, agents and distributors had one-to-one meetings with their dedicated HVPD Account Managers to discuss business development and customer specific projects from each agent's territory. The week also provided a forum for discussion, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and experience between our partners.
 

HVPD staff took pleasure in entertaining our valued agents and distributors throughout the week in a packed social calendar, concluding with our 10th Anniversary celebrations. We were delighted to share this evening with all of our agents and distributors who have helped HVPD reach all corners of the globe.
