Pittsburgh CFO ’s – A little goldmine your IT department is hiding from you!J Bennett 317-222-1329If
you are like most CFO’s you probably spend a lot of money in your IT
department. Why wouldn’t you? PC’s are always faster and better once
replaced. Servers always hit the wall sooner than later. Obsolescence is
real and costly for sure.But one piece of technology does not become unsuitable for use. These are your backup power units.Uninterpretable
power supplies are pretty dull, reliable surge and power protection
devices and if you are a mid-sized or larger business, you may have
hundreds of these.The good news is you don’t need to replace
them because something flashier has come alone. These products last
major upgrade was to connect them to the network for monitoring. That
was added more than 10 years ago. So if your IT guys have been wise, you
have a fleet of backup power that will meet your needs for a very long
time with proper maintenance.If you get up and go looking you
are very likely to find the stash of abandoned backup power units that
were stacked up and forgotten once the batteries failed.Likewise
you can probably easily determine the money spent on new APC or Tripp
Lite or Liebert backup power units purchased to rep:lace those in the IT
boneyard.If you ask, “why don’t we repair the UPS units in the
bone yard, you might hear “we don’t have time”. We can’t rely on a old
UPS” and similar.I have facilitated restoration of thousands of old UPS backup power units. Here is the results I have seen:1. Exchanging batteries is both fast and easy.2. It rakes about 15 minutes and can be done quicker if restoring a batch of them.3. Batteries can be easily and completely recycled.4. Fresh batteries have a probability of successful restoration of nearly 100%.5.
Proper, legal disposal of the re-powered unit is pushed out
significantly since it will be happily protecting your systems instead
of buried in a landfill.6. System life will be boubled. If the unit
has operated for 5 years, it is likely that it will operate for that
duration again, once restored.7. Cost saving s for a mid sized 1500
watt UPS is $265 per unit re-powered shish. Based on new unit cost $350
and replacement pack and shipping = $85 or so. If you are like many, and
find stacks of these abandoned backup units, you can easily see the
opportunity.So look around… See if you don’t find this is worth poking a stick at.If
the IT group is not interested, let the person who cleans your office
fix them. It’s easy and might make for an interesting staff meeting with
your CIO!!Call me for more information. Jim Bennett
