Client Story: Reducing Insurance Premiums with Tier Certification

“When talking about lowering costs most engineers only think about lower utility bills and forget about lowering operating costs across the board, even including insurance premiums.

By making your insurance company aware of your Uptime Institute Certification awards, you can receive better terms on your insurance. It means you are mitigating risk and running a highly efficient data center.

In most companies, insurance premiums are only seen by the CFO. Data center operators need to take the opportunity to have a different conversation with their finance teams and up-level the conversation because you positively impacted the bottom line. We have enjoyed an overall premium reduction of over 10% with significant coverage enhancements after sharing our Uptime Institute Tier Certifications with our insurance provider”
