Protect Your Business From The Damaging Effects Of A Power Outage

Power outages are one of the leading causes of unplanned downtime for businesses, and that translates directly into lost revenue. For some businesses, the average cost of downtime can be up to $300,000 per hour. A power outage can have many different causes- extreme weather, human error, equipment failure, or supply and demand issues.
Home owners and businesses need to prepare for and mitigate power outages as part of their business continuity planning. This should include a reliable power backup solution, data backup & recovery, as well as a plan of how to resume operations. Common technology applications for personal and professional use require a high level of power quality to work properly. Surge protection or an uninterruptible power supply, can shield these electronics and their data from these common power events.

APC by Schneider Electric has a wide variety of solutions to help you prepare for and protect you from the damaging effects of a power outage.
