Get in touch regarding our Enterprise package.

 

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 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.


Do you offer training sessions?

Absolutely, online screen share sessions are available on request. Prefer to meet in person? Pop by our premises in Cambridge for a chat or get in touch to arrange a site visit. A one to one consultation is the perfect way to learn more about Midsummer and discuss your software and product needs. Busy schedule? Out of office and weekend training slots available for a small fee.

 

Does Easy-PV follow the official MCS guidelines?

Easy-PV has been built from the ground up according to MCS guidelines and Building Regulations. Easy-PV reports have stood the test of time when it comes to MCS audits. Everything you need to pass with flying colours in one convenient place.
