- New EcoStruxure Service Plans provide tailored service packages that create bedrock business resilience
- Optimises maintenance budgets by up to 40%, and mitigates electrical failure risk by up to 75% on connected equipment
Maynooth (Ireland), 22nd July 2021 – Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced a new service offer, EcoStruxure Service Plans. These enriched packages combine traditional services with powerful digital services that are tailored to pinpoint and address specific customer goals, improving performance of electrical equipment and systems.
Peace of mind for business continuity
60% of organisations are now preparing for the future by beginning their digital transformations, part of which means digitising electrical infrastructure. The goal of this digitisation is to strengthen everyday uptime and minimise risk.
Research found that 56% of electrical fires are due to a lack of maintenance. Workforce challenges are also frequently encountered, especially with respect to remote expertise and skills gaps. The new EcoStruxure Service Plans alleviate these issues by providing, in a single contract, a tailored mix of on-site services, digital services, and consulting. Schneider Electric emphasises the importance of a seamless experience for customers, who can select the EcoStruxure Service Plan best reflecting their individual needs.
“Strengthening operational resilience is a key priority for many businesses as we start to move into the next phase of recovery from the pandemic crisis,” said Rhonda Doyle Director of Operations, Services and Projects at Schneider Electric Ireland. “During the crisis, many businesses had to find ways to monitor electrical equipment health and power quality with less on-the-ground support. In doing so, many embraced digital solutions and discovered their wider benefits to keep track of the performance, identify maintenance problems before they start, and support more resilient and energy-efficient operations. We’ve built the new EcoStruxure Service Plans with the ideal mix of traditional on-site services and powerful new digital services with IoT to provide this extra layer of resilience and peace of mind for our customers.”
