When it comes to managing lifecycles, your customer’s car and their uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) are a lot alike.
After all, properly operating vehicles, like properly operating UPSs, minimize downtime and ensure reliability. Think of it this way: UPSs require some acceptable level of reliability—often five 9s. What if your customer required 99.999% reliability of their car?
With that kind of reliability, they could confidently drive back and forth to work, run errands, pick up the kids from school, and take weekend trips—without fearing a breakdown on the side of the road.
So how can you help them ensure a properly operating UPS? Maintenance. Show them how both their car and their UPS require battery replacement, tuning, and other regularly scheduled maintenance to protect their investment, ensure uptime and reliability, increase energy efficiency, and ensure productivity.
Once their car reaches the point where frequent downtime wreaks havoc with their lifestyle, they’ll consider replacement. Same with their UPS.
