Press release: Greenlight Planet & Solaris Offgrid team up to better support their distributors through PaygOps

Sun King™ is the flagship brand of Greenlight Planet, a global leader of in solar home energy products with more than 10 million products distributed to date in over 65 countries. PaygOps, the pay-as-you-go leasing management software developed by Solaris Offgrid, is now one of the few chosen paygo platforms pre-integrated with the Sun King product line, offering a new kind of last-mile management for its distributors.

While there is a common unsatisfied need for over one billion people to gain energy access, there is an abundance of technical solutions and business/distribution models to address the matter. As a result, some supporting tools may be more appropriate than others for solar product distributors, depending on the specifics of their local contexts or other unique user experience requirements. This desire for a greater diversity of paygo software platform compatible with Sun King products was one of the key reasons to confirm such partnership, as the Senior Vice President at Greenlight Planet, Dhaval Radia, explains: "Sun King products are now compatible with multiple pay-as-you-go software platforms, including Solaris Offgrid’s PaygOps, allowing distributors to choose the PAYG system that best supports their business model.”

PaygOps is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that stands out by its design, putting a strong emphasis on: post-sales experience, tracking every single interaction if need be, allowing distributors to adapt key aspects of their prospects’ onboarding, after-sales ticketing and even to customize their own workflows with several third party best-in-class apps (read more about interoperability). Thibault Lesueur, Chief Marketing Officer at Solaris Offgrid to add “many of us are experiencing the challenge of moving Paygo from a payment collection method to a profitable business model. With PaygOps we are to equip Sun King distributors and others to facilitate further progresses on portfolio health and up-sales strategies”.

PaygOps is available with Sun King™ products from starting May 2019, as field implementation of this Sun King-PaygOps combination is already starting in West Africa.

If you are interested to receive more information and possibly try such technology combination for your operations, you are invited to solicit Solaris Offgrid at enquiries@paygops.com and Greenlight Planet at media@greenlightplanet.com.
