Electrical contractors and specifiers play an extremely valuable role in both commercial and industrial building construction and renovation. This is because the electrical infrastructure utilises technologies that propel different machinery, IT appliances and so many other elements that are the backbone of any business. Based on the same notion, power protection systems such as industrial UPSs (uninterruptible power supplies) play a vital role in ensuring electrical equipment remains operational throughout. Picking the right industrial UPS supplier can reflect on contractors and specifiers for long periods after the job is done – for better or worse.

The criteria to evaluate before selecting an UPS battery supplier that will meet your backup power needs through the lifecycle of any project can be explained as follows -

Evaluating The Contractors Needs

First things first, the UPS battery backup supplier must be able to meet the expectations that apply to any supplier with whom a contractor or specifier may partner with. That includes getting reliable information about delivery updates, getting swift delivery in case of a contingency, and being able to quickly get in touch with the respective help when needed.

Easy Selection of Equipment

The process of selecting equipment should be simple which means that suppliers should be able to provide pricing information clearly and quickly. Similarly, systematic order management system is equally valuable, including the process of following up on order status.

Partnering For Value & Utility

When it comes to UPSs for commercial and industrial applications, suppliers should make sure they continually relay information to contractors/specifiers regarding the latest offers and technologies. Contractors should choose a UPS supplier with a good reputation in the market, such that they can reap benefits from it.

Payment Plans

UPS suppliers or their distributors should also be flexible n terms of payment optionsi, keeping in mind the end customer’s terms. If the customer is on 90-day payment terms, then that’s what the contractor/supplier will need to account for as well, for example.

Wide Variety & Choice

The supplier should have an extensive range of UPS models that cover a wide variety applications, such as data centers or even commercial and industrial buildings of different sizes. A hospital, for example, will have critical applications such as surgery rooms and slightly less important ones such as access control.

End to End Services

The ideal UPS supplier should have a comprehensive infrastructure and team in place, which would include a diverse network of partners who would support contractors through the project lifecycle, from initial product picking to getting a price, placing the order, delivery, and installation. The supplier should also be able to assist with timely UPS maintenance and upgrades and even the final product replacement.
