Certass says that it can offer a full ‘value-added package’ to installers who are looking to get more from their Competent Person Scheme (CPS) and that making the switch from an existing CPS is ‘really simple’.
Certass CPS benefits include free membership of Certass Trade Association, the glazing industry’s largest trade body, which gives installers access to extra technical and business support. Low-cost public-liability and business insurance and access to finance is also included. There is also the option to add on workmanship certification for other building fabric trades and free access to dispute resolution services. On top of all this, installers can get leads direct from homeowners through Certass’ online ‘Find an Installer’ service.
Jason Clemmit, managing director at Certass, said: “Competent Person Schemes are an essential part of any installer’s remit, so it makes sense to give them a whole package of extras that adds real value for their business. As well as cost-savings on things like insurance, members get access to exclusive member discounts and offers.
“Installers can also get leads from homeowners through our digital support initiatives. We know that most homeowners are checking out companies online before they buy, and our new digital support package helps members get noticed and rated by previous customers.”
The Certass digital support package gives members a unique business profile on the Certass website that homeowners can access through the ‘search for an installer’ function. There is also an online ratings section, where existing customers can score their installers’ service, workmanship and reliability. Plus, every Certass member receives their own Certass member logo.
Jason added: “Whilst we are adding lots of extra benefits for installers, we also know that the priority should always be common-sense, low-cost certification. That’s why Certass schemes are designed by tradespeople for tradespeople, and membership starts at just £23.95 +VAT per month.”
