Phase I: Early Opt-In (March 8, 2023): On March 8th, Fleet will launch the much-anticipated Service Opportunities opt-in functionality, providing dealers the opportunity to proactively participate in the leads program. By simply visiting their Fleet account and completing the opt-in process, dealers may opt-in and be officially ready to receive leads when the program launches regionally on April 12th.

Consumers that are visiting the Service and Support Page, that are looking for service, and are located within the coverage area of an opted-in dealer, will be able to complete a web form outlining the desired service. Dealers who have opted in to receive service leads, and are in the same region, may begin seeing leads populate in their Fleet dashboard if a consumer request becomes available.
Phase III: National Launch (May 10, 2023): On May 10th, Generac will launch the program nationally to all consumers.

Service Request Process
When a Generac home standby customer is in need of service or maintenance, they will visit the Generac Service and Support Page and complete a short request form. When completed, Generac will notify the customer that their request has been received. Generac will then evaluate and qualify the lead, and deliver it to a nearby dealer who has opted into this program. If there is more than one dealer located within the serviceable area, Generac will take into account the frequency of leads accepted, and closed, satisfaction scores, leads added to FLEET, and historical lead delivery frequency, to determine which dealer receives the lead.
Service Request Form
Customers can find the form on the Generac Website here: https://www.generac.com/service-support
Why is the generator serial number required?
We use the serial number for the following purposes:
- Ensure the product type with the dealer’s technician certifications to ensure that they have qualified techs to service the equipment.
- Ensure that the generator does not have an existing relationship with a service dealer.
- Verified against Connectivity data to find any Dealer Managed, Unmonitored, or Preferred Dealer relationships
•Upon submission, the service requests will be matched with a qualified Generac Service Dealer who has opted in to participate in the Service Opportunities program based on their distance to the generator location and technician certifications. When multiple dealers are found, a round-robin assignment process will be used to ensure the fair distribution of opportunities.
•Service Opportunities are delivered to dealers in Fleet on the Service Opportunities page.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where is this program available?
At this time program will be available within the United States only.
Who is eligible to receive service opportunities?
In order to participate you must adhere to the following standards:
- You must be a Generac service dealer with GenService login credentials
- You must have at least one qualified Generac Service Technician who has completed service training and purchased necessary service parts kits.
- You must opt-in to receive opportunities, located in your dealer settings within Fleet
How do I maintain my eligibility to continue receiving service leads?
Participating dealers will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Engagement Rate – Opportunities that are rejected or lost will have a negative impact on the dealer’s engagement rate measurement.
- Fleet conversion rate – Accepted service opportunities converted to enrollment in dealer-managed remote monitoring in Fleet.
- Customer Reviews – CSAT will be collected through a survey process and ranking factors will influence core rank.
Keep these numbers high and you will maintain your eligibility.
Is there any evaluation of whether I am qualified to service the opportunity? (LC vs. AC)
The type of unit will be validated against technician qualifications in GenService
Can my leads be taken from me?
Opportunities that are not accepted or rejected within 48 hours will be removed from your new opportunities. We will evaluate accepted opportunities that have not had their status updated and may remove them if there is a lack of activity.
Does my preferred dealer status in Mobile Link have any bearing on whether a customer can be delivered as an opportunity to another dealer? Does this mean the rules for “protecting” a customer from being contacted by Generac change due to this new program?
The lead delivery process will verify if there is a known dealer relationship for the generator, using the generator serial number. When a match is found, the lead will be delivered to the dealer found associated with the generator. A known dealer relationship will be verified with the following criteria:
- Mobile Link - Preferred Dealer
- Fleet Dealer Managed
- Fleet - Unmonitored
We will not associate a customer with a dealer by registering installer data
What if the installation is not code compliant? Does it impact my service rank if I decline?
Dealers can close the lead as “Installation not code compliant”. Leads closed, for this reason, will not negatively impact the close rate.
How do I receive opportunities? Where will I receive leads?
Leads will be delivered through the Fleet application in a new Service Opportunities view.
What kind of information are you going to give me about the opportunity?
When new opportunities are delivered, you will be provided with information about the consumer and the generator, including the location. After accepting an opportunity, you will have access to additional information about the consumer, including their contact information and contact preferences.
Are you going to monitor my purchases of maintenance items?
Generac Service Parts will track sales history and monitor purchases, compared to your lead activity, on an ongoing basis.
Can Mobile Link users request service through the app?
No, this is not currently available. Customers may only submit requests from the Generac Service and Support page.
