Any power supply issues could have a devastating and expensive impact on your business. A UPS, or uninterruptible power supply, can help protect against such an event.

During a power failure your IT systems, process control and telephone systems would not operate, leading to missed calls, sales or transactions and a loss of product data or staff productivity.

A UPS device can enable a computer to keep running for at least a short time when incoming power is interrupted.

Why Should You Invest In A UPS?

There are a number of reasons you may want to invest in a UPS system for your commercial property, but generally, it is to protect your critical systems from the effects of power failures, voltage dips and power anomalies.

With a UPS system, you can have peace of mind that your business won’t be too impacted.

Prevent Income Loss – If employees are unable to work due to a loss of power, you run the risk of losing valuable income. On average, a power outage can cost small businesses in the UK around £800 per hour of downtime.

Beneficial For Productivity – If your company doesn’t use cloud-based platforms that auto-saves work, you could lose unsaved work. A UPS can help you avoid this - employees will be able to save their work and carry on working through the power outage. Furthermore, if work is lost, your employees will lose time redoing tasks they had already completed. A UPS will ensure your employees’ time and hard work is never wasted.

Protect Business Data – Damage to your computer or server as a result of power infrequencies can lead to a loss of important or highly confidential data which could be crucial to your business.

Prevent Data Corruption – If a database becomes corrupted from a power outage, this could mean having to roll the database back to the previous backup. If the corruption isn’t picked up right away, this could result in a significant amount of lost work.

Protect Building Security - If your access control systems stop working as a result of a power outage, your premises could be at risk of security breaches. This could include door access systems and CCTV solutions.

Protect Your Reputation – A UPS ensures that you can continue business without fear of losing data and, ultimately, customers. If customers feel that their data isn’t in safe hands, they may choose to do business with one of your competitors.
