Technology Innovation Transforming Customer Experience

Watsco continues to lead and innovate through the introduction of new customer-focused technology designed to transform its customer experience and reshape how our industry operates. In light of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Watsco’s innovations have become ever more critical in the daily life of an HVAC/R contractor. As a result, the Company believes it is uniquely positioned to separate itself from its competition with many of these innovations setting the standard for serving HVAC/R contractors.

New innovations added in 2020 include:

 

   

Dockside/curbside pickup to facilitate contactless order fulfillment

 

   

Digital customer outreach and training and rapid customer onboarding process for e-commerce

 

   

Aggressive promotion of OnCall Air®, a proprietary digital sales platform that enables contractors to remotely generate proposals for homeowners

 

   

Expanded consumer financing through CreditForComfort®

Customer use of Watsco’s innovative mobile apps expanded with average weekly users growing 34% compared to a year ago to over 22,000. E-commerce sales continued to grow at a faster pace than overall growth. The current annual run-rate for e-commerce sales is approximately $1.5 billion and, as a percentage of sales was 33% at June 30, 2020 versus 29% at December 31, 2019.

OnCall Air®, Watsco’s digital sales platform for HVAC/R contractors, and CreditForComfort®, its companion financing platform, have also gained traction. During the second quarter, OnCall Air® presented quotes to more than 36,000 households and generated $107 million in gross merchandise value for our customers, a 66% increase over last year. CreditForComfort® processed nearly 2,000 retail financing transactions, a 170% increase over last year.

These capabilities provide for a differentiated customer experience that make it possible for HVAC/R contractors to engage digitally with Watsco at every stage in their daily routine. Taken as a whole, Watsco’s technology offering is unique to the industry and enabled our entrepreneurial leaders to serve customers effectively and with minimal disruption in the current COVID-19 operating environment.

AJ Nahmad, Watsco’s President, commented: “We are encouraged by the accelerated adoption of our technology and the new innovations recently launched. More customers are using our tools as the backbone of their business, allowing them to operate safely and more efficiently as well as providing modern-day tools to interact with homeowners and other end-users. We are energized and committed to doing more to help our customers grow and thrive in this environment.”
