Wipro crosses the 100,000 UPS mark

BANGALORE: The Bangalore-based WeP Peripherals Ltd (new name of Wipro ePeripherals Ltd), the leading IT peripherals solutions and services enterprise has achieved yet another milestone by crossing the 100,000 uploading to server (UPS ) mark.

WeP, which entered the UPS market in April 2001 with its emerge brand has claimed to be the "fastest Indian company" to have reached this landmark in this market segment.

WeP had commenced manufacturing of UPS at the Hyderabad unit last year and the company has made significant investments in terms of manpower, R&D and material resources in this direction.

According to a press release, WeP has taken the initiative to provide customers' stable and reliable power protection equipment - which protect their investments on sensitive equipment's like PC even at the lower segment. WeP claims to be the front runner on this initiative since the last two years by providing affordable branded UPS for segments like SOHO/Home.

Talking about the 100,000 UPS milestone, WeP channel and UPS business manager K Chandrasekhar was quoted as saying, "We are the only Indian company to have achieved this mark of 100,000 UPS in such a short span of time. And we were able to do so because of our widespread channel strength."

Chandrasekhar further added, "WeP has continuously understood customer needs and during the last six months has come out with new innovative products such as Emerge 600VA for 2 PC applications and Emerge 550G, the Only UPS to protect PC even with a generator."

During this period, customers from 272 locations across the country have bought E-Merge UPS which has been accredited to be the Number One 'Bhoomi Brand' as per a recent survey held by 360 Magazine (a channel magazine).

The brand has also been continuously rated by IDC as the Number One Indian UPS brand. Out of these total sales of 100,000 units, about 80 per cent would constitute Emerge 500 VA category, while the remaining unit sales would be of Emerge 600 VA, 650 VA and 1 KVA categories.
