Recycling information technology products offers a path toward sustainability. It helps achieve net-zero goals by reducing waste, conserving resources, and minimizing the environmental impact of technological advancement.
Schneider Electric Trade-UPS for Edge Computing program supports those goals by providing an innovative approach to upgrading Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) units.
This initiative allows customers to exchange any UPS, regardless of brand or condition, for the latest APC Smart-UPS technology. A notable perk is the up to 25 percent discount on the new purchase. The program's flexibility is a key advantage. Customers can upgrade to a UPS with up to four times their current unit's Volt-Ampere (VA) capacity, catering to those needing expanded power backup capacities.
Critically important for recycling and Net Zero goals, APC by Schneider Electric will recycle the products.
Beyond UPS upgrades, the program offers significant discounts on eligible APC accessories, presenting a cost-effective solution for enhancing power backup systems. APC addresses both logistical and environmental concerns in the upgrade process.
The program includes free removal and shipping of old units, simplifying the transition to new technology. For larger units, APC arranges pickup and return in easily accessible areas. Crucially, APC ensures the ecological disposal of returned UPS units and batteries in compliance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and best practices, adding significant value for customers.
The new units come with a warranty of up to three years, providing long-term reliability and peace of mind. Participation in the program requires adherence to specific rules, including options for trading in a single UPS or multiple units, with the combined VA capacity of the traded units determining the size of the new UPS. Additionally, the program offers a cross-sell option, where customers can purchase up to five additional items at discounted prices during the Trade-UPS.
Overall, the APC Trade-UPS for Edge Computing program is a cost-effective solution for technological upgrades and promotes environmental responsibility and customer convenience. It stands as an attractive choice for those looking to enhance their UPS systems.
If your customers need help with replacing or modernizing a larger fleet of UPSs, Schneider Electric’s “Rip, Replace and Recycle” UPS lifecycle services are another approach to support your customers’ overall sustainability strategy.
