Schneider Electric offers secure power solution
Schneider Electric has developed a solution that aims to help with the management of power consumption and backup power.
The secure power and cooling as a service solution delivers secure power without the need to own, operate or maintain the power and cooling systems. It responds to the growing global trend to more effectively manage consumption rather than own the assets.
This solution has just been implemented for a Queensland-based aged-care service provider with over 40 locations Australia-wide, simplifying its operations, improving capital utilisation and freeing internal resources. The solution, available through the APC by Schneider Electric channel network, enables companies to consume a full suite of digitally enabled uninterrupted power solutions at an agreed monthly rate that includes management and support services.
The number of sites and the secure power capacity required can be scaled up or down as needed over the agreement term, all at a pre-agreed cost. This model allows for significant efficiencies in planning and budget management.
The customer can avoid the ownership and responsibility for all secure power hardware and software. This service includes installation, monitoring, maintenance, support, end-of-life management and a commitment to ensuring uninterrupted power quality for the duration of the client’s agreement.
“We’ve spent eighteen months developing this model as a way to help support the businesses that rely on us,” said Schneider Electric VP, Howard Bowland.
“The delivery of our first EcoStruxure Outcomes – Secure Power and Cooling as a Service for our care home client will help us give them and other customers a greater sense of security. It eliminates the potential for any unexpected costs and interruptions to service that can come with owning the infrastructure. This peace of mind is of great value to them, and I believe many others in care and services industries, particularly at a time when companies are navigating an uncertain economic climate.”
“We are excited to be one of the first businesses to work with Schneider Electric on their new as a service offer within this customer’s aged-care centre network. EcoStruxure Outcomes – Secure Power and Cooling as a Service will ensure that all of our aged-care customer’s future critical power and cooling requirements are met by allowing them to pay for what is consumed instead of owning and servicing their own infrastructure,” said Gary Staples, Director of D&G Solutions Group.
