Pricing and Cost Advice
"It has been more of a cost of doing business and maintaining our systems. We use it more as an insurance policy to ensure that our medical records stay up and running. The loss of revenue would have a bigger impact to our organization if our systems were not up and operating. An outage over a 24-hour period could easily be in the $300,000 range, which would be pretty substantial. We are a three million square foot hospital with 380 beds, so it would impact us quickly.""The UPSs are saving us approximately $50,000 a year.""They are around $50,000 to $70,000 depending on the options and the modules that we get.""It saves our company money. Because if there is an outage, it is approximately $1 million a minute for an outage. Since we are a very large credit union, outages would be very expensive for us.""I have a maintenance contract with Eaton, which has been very good. The notifications that we receive, we use email to my team, and they work well.""The cost per unit, as a rough estimate, is $300,000 per UPS 750-block.""When you bid them out, they're all within a single-digit percentage point of each other... The cost of Eaton's service is competitive because we bid it out. I bid the service for all my units on campus: APCs, Lieberts, Eatons, because we've got a big hodgepodge of everything. Eaton won on price.""The pricing is far more competitive than APC or Liebert, the other two big players. And Eaton's service is phenomenal."

Top Answer: The pricing was very fair. That was one of the criteria when we did our evaluation and Eaton had the better price at that time. And what's amazing about it is that I found no other costs with Eaton… more »
Top Answer: If they could reduce the footprint even more, that would be great. And they could always make heat dissipation better. But as long as they're reliable and they work, I don't think there is much room… more »
