Waterco Advance recognised as an industry leading resource platform
Waterco Advance, an online coaching and resource platform launched in November 2015, has won the Training and Education Award at the SPASA 2017 Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner held at Sydney's Luna Park Ballroom.
SPASA NSW ACT CEO Spiros Dassakis says the judging panel was impressed by Waterco Advance's high-quality educational topics and outcomes, information guidance notes, accessible design, and user-friendly features.
"Training is the cornerstone of any successful association, and any successful industry for that matter," says Spiros. "Without education and training, be it industry specific or product related knowledge, industry participants have nowhere to turn.
"Therefore, it is critical that associations like Waterco invest and push education and training on to their customers – because they are not only educating them but allowing them to sell products to a market that is comprised of informed consumers that expect product information to be clearly and intelligently articulated."
With today's modern consumers regularly engaging with comparison sites and conducting their own research, Spiros says Waterco Advance equips its sales team with the information it needs to excel in today's dynamic retail and service landscape.
"The judges unanimously agreed that Waterco Advance is an impressive platform that fosters ongoing professional development and was therefore worthy of the award," he says.
Waterco’s group marketing director, Bryan Goh says the accolade reinforced the group’s reputation for developing high-tech products and platforms that make pool and spa ownership easier and more enjoyable.
"Waterco Advance was designed to help our clients better serve their customers by providing fast, accurate solutions and crucial information that could be accessed remotely via all devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones," he explains.
"It is a real honour to receive such a prestigious award and recognition from the industry for Waterco's Advance training platform. I would like to acknowledge Andy Gale, who was formerly our training manager for his instrumental role in the creation of this platform and creating the bulk of existing material.”
