Wilson Electronics Amasses 600 Certified Installers in Just 7 Months
Wilson Electronics reports that custom installation is now the fastest growing portion of its business.
The popularity of the new category of cellular signal boosters certainly seems to be proven by the rapid success of the Wilson Certified Installer (WCI) program.
St. George, Utah-based Wilson Electronics has certified more than 600 custom installers since CEDIA Expo 2012, making it the company’s fastest growing source of new business.
“Residential and commercial installers have quickly embraced cell signal boosters as a way to help their new and existing customers meet the challenges of weak cell signals and dropped calls,” says Blake Seese, manager of CI business development. “And they also understand that being WCI certified increases their credibility and marketability.”
WCI training and certification gives installers a thorough understanding of Wilson’s signal boosting equipment and technologies. Wilson boosters deliver a strong, reliable cellular signal inside buildings that improve voice and data communications, reduce or eliminate dropped calls and “dead zones,” increase data transfer rates, and improve battery life for cellular devices.
Wilson established the WCI program with two goals in mind: Meet a growing consumer demand for qualified booster installation services, and create new business opportunities for contractors, integrators, and custom installers. According to Seese, “The program has definitely proven to be successful on both counts.”
