Why is there a charge?
Representing many years of development time, Easy-PV is not your typical manufacturer designer or wholesale portal. As a comprehensive stand alone tool, our online solution very much rivals design packages such as PV*SOL. Offering industry leading value for money, installers rely on Easy-PV to support their front line sales teams with a feature rich all-in-one solution.
How about custom reports?
For an additional fee, custom report sections can be hosted for use within Easy-PV. These can either be static pages or dynamic sections which may change depending on the details of the project:
Static - £100 Development charge per section - Monthly fee increase of £5 per section
Dynamic - £120 Development charge per section - Monthly fee increase of £5 per section
Pricing excluding VAT and indicative only. 50% monthly discount applies for additional users.
Complex solutions may entail further costs. Get in touch to request a quotation.
Does Easy-PV integrate with Midsummer?
Though existing as a separate entity, Easy-PV designs can be transferred to Midsummer Wholesale by clicking Review and Order from the overview page. At the touch of a button, the Midsummer Wholesale website loads in a new browser tab with the basket auto populated ready for purchase.
Are Midsummer trade discounts reflected within Easy-PV?
Easy-PV and Midsummer Wholesale accounts can be linked for accurate pricing at the point of quotation. Head to the preferences section within Easy-PV and enter the email and password associated with your Midsummer account. Unless a trade link is established, Easy-PV displays retail pricing as standard.
