Is Your Service Provider Picking Up Their Phone? The Importance of Reliable Support for Critical UPS Systems


The Importance of Reliable Support for UPS Systems

You understand the crucial role of an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system for your business. But what if you encounter an issue with your UPS system? Can you rely on your service provider to be there when you need them the most, providing you with the peace of mind that your critical operations are in safe hands?

UPS systems are the backbone of many industries, providing vital power backup during outages. If these systems fail, it can lead to serious consequences such as downtime, data loss, and even safety hazards. This makes it vital to have a service provider who can offer timely and effective support whenever issues arise.


Evaluating Your Service Provider’s Responsiveness

How can you tell if your service provider is up to the task? Here are some key points to consider:

  • Accessibility: Can you reach them 24/7? Do they offer various contact options like phone, email, and chat?
  • Response Time: How quickly do they respond to your calls and service requests?
  • Technical Expertise: Are their support staff knowledgeable and capable of quickly diagnosing and fixing issues?
  • Communication: Do they keep you updated throughout the service process?

Signs Your Service Provider Might Not Be Reliable

Watch out for these red flags:

  • Lacks to provide information regarding replacement consumables (batteries, capacitors, fans) or replacement of units once they reach end of service life.
  • Not providing contact renewals in a timely manner
  • Difficulty reaching them during critical times.
  • Delays in responding to emergency calls.
  • Lack of transparency or poor communication about the status of your service.
  • Failing to scheduled required services
  • Needing to follow up repeatedly because issues remain unresolved.

How to Choose a Reliable Service Provider

To ensure you have the right support, look for providers who:

  • Reputation: Have a strong reputation and positive client reviews.
  • Service Level Agreements (SLAs): Offer clear SLAs with guaranteed response times, and coverage levels stated clearly
  • Proactive Maintenance: Provide regular maintenance and system checks.
  • Training and Certification: Employ certified and well-trained technicians.

UPS Service Case Studies

When the City of Fond Du Lac experienced a critical UPS failure.  With Quality Power Solution, the critical support team was able to determine that the unit was not able to be salvaged.  Our solution was to pull a new UPS, and maintenance bypass from our in house stock, deliver the unit to site, work with local electricians to get it installed and complete startup within 24 hours of experiencing failure.

We had experienced a catastrophic failure of one of our UPS’s in  our main data center.  We were able to migrate all of the critical applications over to our secondary data center until a tech could arrive to assess the damage. A single call to QPS took care of everything, from dispatching a tech, to coordination and replacement.  Our unit went down at about 9:00 am on a weekday  and we had a new unit staged and Online by 10:00 pm that same  day.  I can’t say enough about how helpful and accommodating the  staff at QPS was.  They did everything they could to get us operational with as little downtime as possible.
