Why work with co op electrical

Why Work with Co-op Electrical?

  • To offer our members a viable alternative to BrightHouse, Perfect Homes and other high cost ways of buying goods.

  • To put more money back in our local economies.

  • Part of an education process that there are alternatives for people who can’t get mainstream credit

  • As an income stream – other members buying goods through your website

  • Local Authorities, Housing Providers and other partners are interested in the scheme, particular product bundles

  • The Co-op is a natural fit for credit unions


The credit union perspective

The Credit Union Perspective

Opportunities

  • Partnership working

  • Save money for members

  • Another marketing tool

  • Income from commission

Threats

  • Category A Licence required

  • Additional paperwork required

  • Ordering the goods for the member takes time and often they order goods no longer available


How to deal with the threats

How to deal with the Threats

  • ABCUL have provided a good set of guidance notes

  • Category A Licence is simple to apply for on line but there can be issues of not understanding credit unions

  • The paperwork is lengthy and not customer friendly – it might not be so onerous if we can get in integrated into our software.

  • Ordering – we would like to look at improving the efficiency on ordering
