Lawrenceville, Georgia, UNITED STATES

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., May 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of Distribution, 3PL and 4PL solutions for a diverse range of finished goods and replacement parts, today announced its 5-year partnership with ServicePower is enhancing focus to jointly support home warranty underwriters that increasingly are expanding coverage to electronic devices.

Today, the standard home warranty typically covers major appliances and systems such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical. Underwriters are now trending toward extending coverage to all appliances, televisions, mobile devices and other products that more commonly are protected by separate extended warranties.

As the home warranty industry continues to evolve its offerings, Encompass and ServicePower – a market leader in mobile workforce management software – have augmented their service solutions to aid underwriters in meeting expanded contract obligations. ServicePower’s robust platform helps control and schedule the work of field service resources supporting 27 diverse industries, while Encompass supplies repair parts for everything from appliances and consumer electronics to pool and spa and lawn and garden products.

Encompass and ServicePower first entered into an agreement in 2012 to jointly market both companies’ comprehensive aftermarket services. Like Encompass, ServicePower seeks to add value to the aftermarket supply chain by leveraging strategic partnerships and innovative technology. Together, they presently support numerous entities throughout the warranty and extended warranty repair cycle.

Encompass is integrated with the ServicePower platform to simplify access to its comprehensive database of factory original service parts, providing one-stop sourcing. Technicians servicing an array of products who receive work through the ServicePower applications can easily search for and order replacement parts through Encompass. Encompass then delivers data back to ServicePower to assist in warranty claims validation and returns notification.

“One of the reasons our partnership has been so successful is that we are able to offer a wealth of valuable services to multiple diverse vertical markets from one combined source,” said Encompass President and CEO Robert Coolidge. “While our current focus is on supporting the major appliance industry, our innovative business model enables us to serve many different vertical markets.
