System Design and Sales
When you are bidding on a project or sending out an RFP you need to know how things work and what to budget to make it happen. Our sales team is more than happy to provide you with all the information you need to make sure the monitoring design of your project is a success. Our team is committed to provide responsive, expert guidance for all your PV monitoring questions and concerns. We have designed thousands of monitoring systems of every size and description. You can rely on our expertise.
Installation and Commissioning Support
Every unit we ship comes with easy to follow mounting and installation instructions and a Customer Support Representative on call. We also offer on-site installation support and will train your technicians to install our hardware. With MW-scale applications there are always plenty of kinks to work out. Not only will our software help detect those kinks, but AlsoEnergy will stand behind you to diagnose and resolve them. An AlsoEnergy Field Technician can be on-site to address the hiccups that might come up. We don’t consider a system to be “working” until we have 7 days of consistent communications and data from all the devices we are monitoring.
Support Job Ticketing
When you call our support team for any reason, our team starts a “ticket” for your issue in the AlsoEnergy Support Desk. This ticket helps us share information among our departments as we try to resolve your issue. As long as your issue is outstanding, this ticket will chart our progress on your issue with notes and status updates.
We recommend that all clients register in the AlsoEnergy Support Desk. This web resource provides 24-7 access to your job ticket status information any time you have an outstanding support issue. Registered users will be able to check progress on job tickets any time, day or night. You’ll also be able to leave notes and updates to share with our team.
Every project comes with different software set-up needs. Once your system begins to accept reporting data, our deployment team will Q&A your monitoring to verify data transmission and to set up basic software configurations. We offer a wide range of added configuration services that may suit your project needs, including customized displays, reports, alerts, and performance modeling.
Many customers choose to include on-site training as part of their monitoring packages. This is an opportunity for your team to receive direct hands-on training from AlsoEnergy technicians, along with system commissioning and troubleshooting support. Remote training can also be made available for off-site staff via a webinar. Training will be tailored to the roles and needs of all your software users.
Even healthy monitoring systems can experience occasional interruptions in data transmission for a variety of reasons related to internet access. If your data stops reporting, or if your values seem wrong, help is just a phone call away. Our experienced support technicians will help you troubleshoot your issues to determine the root cause. If you need to fix or replace hardware sourced from AlsoEnergy, our team will take care of all warrantied devices, and we can source most replacement parts with minimal lead time.
