· The mobile app will significantly simplify running a solar business
· Freyr has raised INR 10 Cr in the last 18 months from Institutional and Angel Investors
Hyderabad, 19th April 2017: Freyr Energy, a full service solar provider, today launched Freyr SunProTM (SunPro) which is a revolutionary ‘India first’ mobile application that will help individuals and companies run their rooftop solar businesses with ease. Freyr SunProTM, which can be used on both iOS and Android devices, uses complex algorithms and data analytics to streamline the entire process of getting a customer’s solar requirements fulfilled.
With SunPro, the user does not need a solar or electrical background anymore to start their business. The training time to use the SunPro is less than 1 hour. The App’s all-encompassing platform is equivalent to a 5-person team (Design engineer, pricing specialist, customer management, supply chain and project management) supporting you 24x7, 365 days to help close orders. It works both offline and online, has an error free system design that also gives a detailed techno-commercial report and pricing recommendations. The app reduces the sales cycle for users to 1-2 meetings with the customer and the user can start the business without having to hire any additional staff. This ensures that the business is profitable from Year 1 itself.
Mr. Saurabh Marda, Co- Founder and Managing Director, Freyr Energy said, “By launching SunPro we want to enable individuals and small to medium sized companies start and run their solar businesses with minimal investment. We have eliminated all the complexity involved in system design, pricing, proposal generation etc. and made it easier to sell a solar system, while ensuring the customer gets the best product possible. The Government’s ambitious target of achieving 40 GW of rooftop solar installations by 2022 will require tremendous grassroots participation especially on sales front. We believe SunPro can help fill the void.”
