That may sound like a lot to swallow, but looking at long-term needs and implementing solutions now will allow companies to remain competitive in the next economy and beyond.

The company's UPI-based solutions can help customer's reduce the carbon footprint of their data centers and intelligent buildings and optimize energy use and maximize resource efficiency across all operations.

"Panduit has conducted numerous global road shows, seminars and webinars to explain to customers and partners the benefits of a UPI approach. We are enabling our partners through training to show how they can offer more value to the end customer and differentiation through UPI-based solution approach.
