Liebert Case Study - NetSource One


NetSource One

Andy Skrzypczak, co-founder of Saginaw, Michigan-based NetSource One, and partner Tony Hages had grown the consulting firm, systems integrator and application service provider to the point where larger quarters were needed to house the growing number of employees.

“We don’t worry about power since we installed Liebert’s Nfinity online UPS,” said Skrzypczak. “The uninterruptible power units give us multiple paths of redundancy. Before, we had multiple points of failure,” a reference to the discarded standby and line-interactive units that used to support servers and individual workstations.

“The performance of our Liebert UPS system has been awesome. We’ve had no downtime. With the units from our previous supplier, we’d sometimes lose everything. The Liebert Nfinity is not only redundant, it’s smart. We had one battery module fail. The system took it off line and notified the network manager of the problem. The Liebert Nfinity is conditioning power all the time. It doesn’t care where the power comes from — the utility, the batteries, or the generator — and switching back and forth between sources is seamless and automatic.”

Skrzypczak also has good things to say about Liebert service and support. “A field engineer came out and got our UPS system up and integrated into our network in a day. An application expert from Liebert conducted a lunch-and-learn session with our people so they can now explain UPS technologies and what that means in terms of capability to our customers. And the replacement battery module for our Nfinity arrived within 24 hours of our call to Liebert. All we had to do was slide it into place.”

Skrzypczak and his partner were sufficiently impressed by the Liebert products, service, and support that NetSource One signed up as a Liebert solutions provider. Today they are a top performer, as well as a three-phase UPS product reseller.
