Following the success of its German e-academy, the Baumann Group has launched a new version aimed at its English-speaking customers.
As a result of the COVID pandemic halting factory visits and face-to-face presentations, the parent company of Bauformat and Burger brands decided to launch an e-academy for its UK retailers.
The e-academy provides informative modules 24/7, allowing retailers to improve their product knowledge at a convenient time and place to suit them.
These modules are in addition to live training seminars which take place on fixed dates and times.
Adam Presch, sales manager, North UK and Ireland explained: “We have launched the Baumann Academy portal for all our dealers to interact with.
“The portal not only gives our clients dedicated access to our product’s features via real-time live webinar training, but from mid-2021 ‘on demand’ learning modules will also be available to complete at a time to suit the customer.
“‘Credits’ will be awarded for each seminar completed, and when a specific number of credits have been attained, a certificate will be awarded to confirm their expertise in Bauformat & burger products, which can be displayed in their showroom.
“From this our dealers will be fully equipped to design their client’s dream kitchen.”
The Baumann Group has also set the buying rate for a year to protect its UK retailers from price fluctuations.
