Suwanee, Georgia (August 15, 2018) – Emerson awarded Control Southern today with the status of Emerson Impact Partner representing the company’s highest level of customer support. Control Southern and associated Emerson Impact Partner Network companies will operate as locally-accessible, singular points of contact for leveraging the full breadth of Emerson integrated solutions and expertise.
The 21 current Emerson Impact Partner companies were awarded this status through a rigorous certification process of their facilities, procedures, engineers and local service professionals, as well as a demonstrated ability to support customer process optimization and performance improvement programs. Each partner was assessed in more than 50 certification paths to verify capabilities and compliance to Emerson standards.
Distinct from traditional manufacturer-to-third-party representative and distributor relationships, Emerson Impact Partners have a tightly integrated culture with Emerson and with each other that ensures consistent engineering practices and services across the Network to provide customers with the broadest, most responsive support organization in the industry. Combining local support with proven processes and technologies from Emerson ensures the appropriate technical resources, methods and best practices are applied to deliver improved and measurable business results for Emerson’s customers.
“Our customers appreciate consistent, high value-added services and support across the multi-site operations they run,” said Frank deJong, president North America for Emerson Automation Solutions. “Many of them cite inconsistent local support as an industry-wide problem that leads to variability in project execution and operations. As the impact of digital technologies expand across the enterprise, Emerson and our Emerson Impact Partners are uniquely positioned through a focused, systematic approach to provide the expertise and solutions that drive peer-leading performance.”
