Pro-active 360° Service – Ensuring the Continuity of Operational Processes Today and in the Future
Today, business and operational processes strongly depend on uninterruptible power supplies because even failures lasting only a few seconds might have serious consequences for the productivity, reputation and profitability of a company.
In a study carried out by Forrester Research and Disaster Recovery Journal in 2010, 44 % of the IT managers and CEOs surveyed stated that the biggest damage resulted from operational interruptions due to power failures.
This suggests that energy availability and quality are the most crucial factors with regard to the continuity of operational processes.
Failures or disturbances of the power grids are virtually inevitable. The downtimes resulting from this, however, will not only cost the affected companies time and money, but might also have an impact on the companies' reputation or result in customers being dissatisfied.
Detecting risks and eliminating them pro-actively
In order to prevent such damages, a high-quality preventive service and maintenance concept is required. Among other things, “preventive” or “pro-active” means that your power supply system can be monitored and controlled continuously via remote access.
In case of any anomalies, it might be sufficient to make some system settings via remote access or to install firmware updates.
If an impending potential problem cannot be eliminated, a service technician will be sent automatically and pro-actively on the customer's behalf – without a phone call being necessary – who will carry our corrective maintenance, observing specified response and arrival times to restore system operation on site.

A holistic approach is of process-critical significance
Understandably, companies often try to achieve the highest possible availability with the lowest possible support costs. For this reason, companies tend to train their own staff to carry out simple service work.
Generally, however, these measures and the available technical know-how are not sufficient to ensure completely safe and reliable operation. Moreover, companies often ignore the fact that the assignment of their own staff can also mean a considerable effort with regard to time, personnel and costs.
To minimize or even to completely avoid such failures right from the beginning, companies need a holistic approach including hardware and software support. This is because both pro-active prevention and elimination of failures are of process-critical significance.
For this reason, an effective high-availability strategy must be based on a thorough risk analysis. The classification of risks based on problems that have already occurred, a possible loss of sales or expected damages regarding the company's reputation should result in the prioritization of possible measures to be taken in order to prevent these risks.
For quantitative risk assessment, this prioritization then can be provided with a cost-benefit analysis in order to define the measures to be taken to prevent the risks. This is why BENNING's service strategies combine planning, prevention and corrective maintenance to ensure continuous operation.
