Don't push that button!
We often focus our effort and energy on our sales pipeline and what is needed to move an opportunity forward to close. Once an opportunity has been becomes history. We forget that we can learn from the past. Where did we find those cool wins that helped grow our business? In this email, and going forward, we will share about opportunities that became COOL Wins. Maybe this will spark some ideas on where to look for more MP opportunities.

Customer request becomes opportunity for a new configuration:

Ever wonder why we developed the Series 17 - 176 model with the recessed button? We received a call from a customer who was using our 175 model in a police vehicle upfit application. The MP circuit breaker was positioned under the vehicle seat and the customer was interested in a means to protect the button from inadvertently being pushed. The customer was concerned that the button would be kicked or bumped which would open the circuit and shut down the equipment.

In a matter of days MP had quickly designed a shorter recessed button and provided samples to the customer for testing. Their response to the sample was "This is exactly what we were looking for".

Thanks to the help from our distribution partner to ensure the samples were delivered and that 176 inventory is available, we hope to enjoy this business for a very long time.

Where can you find 176 opportunities?

Look for vehicle upfitters, fleet management, small compartment spaces, mounting locations that are exposed to possible bumping, and where the customer might want to restrict the disconnect to the service personnel.
