Our procurement process

Our rigorous procurement process is designed to make switching to a hot water heat pump as easy as possible. 

1. Find Suppliers

Before commencing the selection process, we proactively research and contact industry-leading suppliers encouraging them to apply.

2. Select Suppliers

Interested suppliers fill in assessment forms and provide supporting documentation about their product offering, warranties, customer service, financial situation. We then conduct a selection process based on product quality, price, safety, customer service, values, track record, credit history, installation capability. We conduct in-person interviews and site visits.

2. Contract Suppliers

We then negotiate a supplier agreement for the top suppliers that pass the selection process. Our legal agreements with suppliers define product specifications, price and minimum performance standards ensuring they offer you only their best offer.

4. Monitor suppliers

We meet regularly with our suppliers to ensure compliance with supplier agreements. We run quarterly spot-checks of quotes and if something goes wrong we have a dedicated customer service team who acts on your behalf and works with the supplier to resolve the issue.​
