D-Tech™ is the only database system in the backup power industry that is accessed by the client, the engineer and account management. The result is a robust database that receives a constant stream of up-to-the-minute information.

It analyzes and presents information intelligently so you can find trends, plan proactively and create bulls-eye budgets. With a few taps you can check service reports, equipment stats, billing, end-of-life parts replacement, site summaries and more. Create custom reports and download everything easily. The full-featured D-Tech™ app also has everything you need for mobile site management.

Second in the PowerTools Suite™ is our new Site Sentry™ software. Standing guard 24/7, Site Sentry™ works like a life support system for your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) equipment. It monitors all aspects of equipment functionality so you can predict issues, and sends an alert to team members when there’s a potential problem. Quickly check load status, input/output voltages, remaining battery capacity and much more. In addition to specifics on each piece of equipment, Site Sentry™ gives you a site-level view so you can check sites and UPS equipment performance at a glance.
