Power House online platform a key facilitator of community support throughout the pandemic
UK independent dealer platform Office Power has been awarded a BOSS Industry Community Heroes Award 2020 for opening up their online social learning and community platform, the Power House, to support all dealers throughout the pandemic.
The Power House platform was originally designed for Office Power to share training and learning plans with existing dealer partners, to enable them to make the most of the award-winning technology and services. However, during the COVID-19 crisis, Office Power recognised the need for all dealers to come together and share their thoughts and feelings, access valuable resources as well as collaborate with and learn from each other. By opening up the Power House to all dealers in the industry, the entire dealer community benefits from access to numerous resources like articles, videos, webinars and user-generated content. They also have a space to share, collaborate and support each other. The Power House has been a vital instrument in facilitating this community feel.
Office Power CEO Simon Drakeford said: “This has been one of the hardest periods our industry has had to endure in our lifetime, and we’ve all needed extra support and community spirit at this time. By opening up the Power House online community to all dealers, we believe we’ve created that valuable space and facilitated a collaborative environment, not only to help dealers feel supported, but to ensure they have access to the resources and information to make the best decisions for the longevity of their businesses at this time.”
