The right Technology Strategy transformed the Clipsal brand into a quarter of a billion-dollar business through Custom Software Development

"Clipspec has been a real success. It has empowered our channel consultants to easily showcase Clipsal products to customers. This has resulted in increased upselling and in turn, increased sales through our market channels."

  • The Clipsal brand initially envisioned an innovative online planning tool back in 2008

  • The challenge was to increase Clipsal’s engagement with their customers, to help better inform their lighting and electrical choices

  • Clipsal envisaged a tool that would empower Clipspec consultants to guide customers through the detailed electrical planning process, while ensuring adherence to safety standards and best practice

  • The tool was also identified as the way to enable consultants to up-sell better products to improve customer stickiness, engagement, satisfaction and driving revenue

  • Developed using Microsoft frameworks for desktop & communications with a client-server architecture; this allowed Schneider to benefit from the security & scalability of the Microsoft stack

  • As competition increases and technology evolves, Solentive have continued to work with Schneider Electric to re-imagine the Clipspec solution

  • Schneider Electric’s next challenge is to scale the product to home automation, and encompass the home planning journey, to effectively compete for the total spend of projects

  • The Clipsal brand was first to market with a visual CAD like application, that helps customers to plan their electrical choices on their floor plan

  • Now owned by Schneider Electric, the Clipsal team realised a significant increase to customer satisfaction & engagement

  • Sales increased from $12 million to a quarter of a billion dollars in 5 years

  • The use of innovative technology enabled Schneider Electric to get a competitive advantage that has remained in place for over 10 years
