Selling opportunities for installers

With Kubu, there’s a full range of promotional materials and a free showroom set up programme for installers eager to start up-selling doors to smart-sensor technology today, Avantis Hardware has reported.

Thousands of doors are manufactured every week with a Kubu multi-point lock, and it’s been designed with an integrated slot for a Kubu smart-sensor. Installers can now upsell doors to ones that are Kubu equipped as part of a smart package for no additional cost and it’s a means to close more sales to tech savvy consumers, the company said.

To activate the Kubu hub consumers must download the Kubu app, plug in the Kubu hub, insert the sensor (much in the same way as inserting a SIM card into a mobile phone) and then follow the activation process through the app. There’s no requirement from installers at the point of installation: just point the consumer to the website to buy the Kubu Kit and then all queries are handled directly by Kubu.

First-time activations for Kubu are already high, and with increasing numbers of consumers going ‘smart’, it’s an opportunity for installers to get ahead as the industry is already becoming increasingly smart-led, the company said.

Lauren Bromley, head of brand for Kubu, said: “There’s never been a better time to start selling smart-sensor technology with Kubu. The product is now proven in the field with an ongoing development programme and it’s backed with considerable marketing resource, so it provides trouble-free upselling opportunities.

“Several of the industry’s most trusted and respected PVCU frame manufacturers are Kubu partners and they and their respective customers are thrilled with it.”
