Overview

Legrand is a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructure & a leader in wiring devices category of products. Legrand India is a market leader in premium wiring devices category.In the current scenario, switch and socket products follow the below distribution chain.

Manufacturer --- Stockist --- Retailer --- Electrician / End user 

These products require very basic technical knowledge for installations and hence electricians can easily manage the installation requirement. Also, the after-sales service (Installation)/ maintenance of these products are easy.

IoT based devices are need of the hour due to the Introduction of IoT technologies and its compatibility with the ever increasing connected devices. 

Our products will cater to this need, however technical know-how and installations would require higher skills levels and innovative issue resolution methods.  

Basic requirements 

Existing distribution channel for switches and sockets are already established. However, we need to define methods in order to help them upgrade to accommodate IoT based products.
 
Also, we need to develop alternate distribution channel without conflict to existing distribution channel who can take care of entire product lifecycle (Selection – purchase – installation – maintenance)
The solution needs to be: 

•Scalable (easily replicable across India) 
•Sustainable
•Conflict-free
