Energy management specialist firm Schneider Electric has won two Frost & Sullivan awards -- 'UPS Vendor of the Year' and 'Service Provider of the Year' -- for the Southeast Asia 2012 cycle.
Speaking on 16 October 2012, Schneider Electric vice president for ASEAN IT business TS Khoo said the company's focus on the end-to-end services was a critical success factor for data centre customers in Malaysia and throughout ASEAN.
Schneider Electric is increasingly acknowledged for customer focus and IT product offerings, and has singled out ASEAN as a market in the coming years, said Khoo.
"We continue to focus on delivering integrated and innovative end-to-end data centre solutions that are business-wise and future-driven. Our customer insights across ASEAN reveal availability, efficiency and scalability to be the main challenges in IT today," he said. "As a Trusted Data Centre Advisor, Schneider Electric has been assisting customers with these challenges by educating them on DCIM processes, guiding them through the important workflows, using the correct tools and embracing software such as StruxureWare."
Schneider Electric senior vice president for APJ [Asia Pacific & Japan] IT business unit, Philippe Arsonneau, said: "As an accredited industry consultant, Schneider Electric has been working with customers across APJ to highlight the importance of energy management. By implementing integrated energy management solutions in industrial, commercial, or data centre sectors, we save a significant portion of the world's final energy consumption. This is our focus and an area we pride ourselves on."
"The recognition from Frost & Sullivan with these two awards is a great fillip to our company and we look forward to the exciting times ahead. Our commitment to excellence goes beyond receiving our awards this evening - it is about ensuring our customers' IT 'health', growth and success in the region," said Arsonneau.

The 'UPS Vendor of the Year' award is presented to an organisation that has demonstrated the highest level of achievement in its respective market.
