IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bluon, Inc., a fast-growing company with a mission to increase the capacity, performance and GMV of the HVAC-R industry by empowering its technicians, has received the top software innovation award ahead of the 2022 AHR Expo. The Expo is the HVAC-R industry’s premier event and the award is sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, the global standards for HVAC-R.
Bluon’s support platform is a revolutionary mobile app that makes HVAC technicians in the field more effective, more efficient and more capable. Its members are given access to 24/7 live support, just-in-time training, tools, a powerful database of over 45,000 unique HVAC-R models and soon a method to connect directly to their local distributors to make informed purchases.
“Bluon is more than a mobile app, it’s more than a support platform,” said Peter Capuciati, chairman and CEO at Bluon. “Bluon is 70,000 HVAC-R technicians, soon to be 150,000 or half the industry, who are supported and connected like never before. Bluon is the first scalable solution that is actually making a difference in helping to minimize the skilled labor shortage that continues to plague the HVAC-R industry.”
The Bluon support platform, which more than 70,000 HVAC-R member technicians depend on every day, is set to become the first brand-agnostic, supplier-agnostic marketplace for all of HVAC-R. With a mission fundamentally based on empowering HVAC technicians, Bluon seeks to enhance and expand local relationships between local technicians and their local distributors.
“Bluon has solidified its position as an innovator within the HVAC market, by creating the first mobile app and software solution to be self-adopted by technicians at scale,” Capuciati said. “This award makes it clear to the industry that Bluon has now fully evolved into the largest, brand-agnostic mobile app and software platform in HVAC-R.”
The AHR Expo will be held Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 in Las Vegas. Manufacturers of all sizes and specialties will come together to share ideas and showcase the future of HVAC-R technology. Bluon will be on site at booth C6617.
