Why Nearmap Doesn’t Compare To PVsell

Nearmap is a great satellite tool, but can’t do a fraction of what PVsell does – when it comes to selling solar systems, PVsell trumps the lot.

While nearmap gives you an image of the customer’s roof, PVsell completes a full financial analysis with high accuracy, clearly demonstrates the financial benefits of your proposed system, does battery analysis, gives you new marketing prospects and helps solar businesses sell solar systems BOTH small and large!

Here’s some things PVsell will do, which nearmap cannot:

  • Accurate financial returns calculation
  • Battery systems
  • Consumption profile analysis
  • Hourly analysis of financial benefits
  • Demand reduction benefit analysis
  • Time of Use calculation adjustments
  • Full cashflow analysis and energy flows
  • Complete proposal for your customer in less than 5 minutes

PVsell clients want to keep it to themselves, but we want you to see what a difference it can make towards ANY solar business.

The difference between Lay’d and Nearmap really boils down to:

Do you want a Pretty picture of a solar layout on a high definition image that looks exactly the same as your competitor?

Or do you need a Professional proposal that has you stand above the competition (with a pretty picture of a solar layout too)… (which also includes accurate financial calculations and system size recommendation)
