Offer 24/7 Backup Power with Easy UPS

How you can offer 24/7 backup power reliability to commercial customers

Clipsal UPSs are designed to keep you going

Imagine you own a small business, maybe a bakery or a retail shop, and you come to work in the morning to find the power is out. You can’t turn on the lights, and security systems as well as HVAC systems are down.

Even worse, the point-of-sale (POS) system, which is the operational backbone of your business, won’t work. Once the POS system is offline, you not only can’t conduct sales transactions, but you also lose the ability to process critical data including inventory, reservations, accounting, customer loyalty programs and more.

You simply can’t conduct business under these conditions, unless of course, you had the help of your expert electrician who prepared you for such an event with proper backup power using uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units. These UPSs are designed to keep you going when your main power fails and save you $$$’s.

Electricians as Trusted Advisor

As this example illustrates, many small businesses are not set up with backup generators especially if they are operated from stand-alone offices or housed in smaller buildings without infrastructure, and power protection is an afterthought.

Electricians and electrical contractors are in a position to act as trusted advisors, making businesses aware of the threats to business continuity they face from electrical failures, and how UPSs offer protection more easily and for a fraction of the cost.

Examples of small buildings that can benefit from UPS protection include restaurants, cafés, grocery stores, hotels, boutique retail stores, dry cleaners and laundromats, small professional consulting offices, to name a few.

Whatever the business, there’s no shortage of applications that may require UPS protection.

Educate your Customers about UPSs for Business Continuity

Start a conversation with your customer around the applications and tools they need to keep their business functioning every day. For any sort of retail facility, that will include the POS systems, which are essentially small computers.

POS is critical in this environment to capture sales, and track inventory needs; it even aids in workforce management. Of course, bakeries and restaurants need to ensure their ovens, stoves and refrigeration are always functioning. If any of these systems go down, that business owner deals with lost revenue and unhappy customers.

Most any business now also has various applications that involve data, whether it’s inventory control systems, or data management tools to promote efficiency or track consumer behavior. They likely have networking equipment providing connectivity both within the building and to the Internet, perhaps to critical cloud-based applications. Some have monitoring systems covering everything from oven and refrigeration temperature to humidity levels. All of these are essential to the normal functioning of the business and therefore require UPS protection.

Safety and Security Systems demand Power Protection

Similarly, safety and security systems are important to any business – in some cases even more so when the power goes out. Burglar alarms and security cameras, for instance, should still function through an outage to prevent anyone from trying to take advantage of the situation, such as in a retail store or restaurant.

Likewise, fire alarms, smoke extraction and emergency lighting systems need to remain alive – that’s especially true in highly populated spaces such as hotels, but really applies in any commercial building.

For many of these systems to function properly and communicate any issues, telecom and Wi-Fi services need to be functioning. All of these systems that provide critical safety and security coverage should be assessed for backup power protection.
