Johnson Controls unveils product finder
The GreenOhm Rebate and Incentive Finder is designed to help distributors and dealers identify rebates and incentives on York, Coleman and Luxaire brands of HVAC components and systems. The new tool is available free to Liberties dealers who participate in the Liberties website program.
“The GreenOhm Rebate and Incentive Finder gives these dealers the opportunity to highlight a good, better, best product offering on their websites and show the rebates and incentives by ZIP code tied to these products,” said Brenda Keith, Johnson Controls Unitary Products marketing project manager.
Keith said the tool enables dealers to customize their webpages to show the selected models that are described as “good,” “better” or “best” based on local distributor stock. Or the dealer can choose to default to a selection made by the distributor.
“The freedom to create their own good, better, best options gives dealers the opportunity to feature systems that they are promoting or systems that are tied to a local rebate,” Keith said.
The GreenOhm tool also allows both distributors and dealers to search for rebates and incentives, again by ZIP codes, associated with other systems and components not featured as part of the “good,” “better” or “best” option.
“Being able to easily search and gather all of the rebates available for a potential model or system gives the dealer a great advantage in the sales process,” Keith said. “At the same time, consumers have the ability to search dealer websites for rebates and incentives, which helps drive sales to the dealer.”
The webpage also links consumers to an energy savings calculator, providing homeowners with a more complete savings picture that includes energy savings associated with the equipment as well as the available rebates and incentives.
“Our aim is to create easy-to-use tools and interfaces that help take the complexity out of the rebate and incentive process, ultimately saving consumers and companies money,” said Andrew Taitz, chairman of GreenOhm.com. “The program with Johnson Controls is especially exciting because it represents the first time that a manufacturer has provided all of their eligible dealers with a powerful tool that historically was reserved for the corporate websites of much larger companies.”
