Let's face it: downtime is expensive. So expensive, in fact, that it costs the average business around $2,000 per hour in lost productivity, lead generation, and even data integrity.
One of the easiest ways to avoid this costly downtime is to install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These powerful systems can keep your business operational while you're waiting on your main power source to kick in again. The problem? There's no such thing as a fail-proof UPS system, which is why regular maintenance is required. Here's our take on why UPS preventative maintenance is so critical to your overall IT strategy, and tips on how to choose the best UPS monitoring software or service for your business needs.
Think of it like servicing your car. Just like you wouldn't run your vehicle without servicing the key parts once in a while, you shouldn't neglect the core components of your UPS. Failing to properly maintain your UPS may lead to:
In short, if you don't prioritise UPS maintenance, you could face steeper costs down the line.
A UPS monitoring service helps avoid costly downtime by:
Most importantly, a UPS monitoring service lets your core IT staff and service personnel focus on staying productive rather than worrying about power issues.
To choose the right UPS monitoring service or software, consider:
Ask as many questions as you need before choosing your provider.
Sure, but it may not be the best strategy. For example, it's all too easy to overlook a routine battery inspection, and you might not know how often to change and clean the critical parts like filters and fans.
On the other hand, with a professional performing your UPS maintenance, you can relax knowing that your power supply is properly maintained. And remember, a predictable bill from a UPS service provider is always less expensive than unexpected downtime!
