CHICAGO, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Lite, a world leader of manufacturing power protection equipment, announces its SmartPro(R) 2200 NET and Internet Office(TM) 500 were chosen as Recommended Products by VARBusiness Labs. VARBusiness, a bi-weekly magazine that provides in-depth information on IS technology and its effects on the value-added reseller market, evaluated UPSs from various vendors to determine the UPS model exhibiting the highest quality and best reseller marketing program. VARBusiness recommends products that rank high in the categories of hardware, software and reseller programs. Tripp Lite's SmartPro 2200 NET and Internet Office 500 UPS Systems were chosen based on their features and long runtimes. Tripp Lite's PowerAlert(R) software was noted for its ability to manage every brand of UPS system, from every vendor, which VARBusiness felt was "a very important attribute for VARs, who will likely be dealing in heterogeneous environments at their client's sites." Finally, Tripp Lite was recognized for its attention to the needs of resellers. In addition to Tripp Lite, APC, Best Power, Exide Electronics Group Inc., and International Power Technologies (IPT) supplied UPS systems for evaluation. "Not only do our UPS systems meet the diverse needs of workstation- and server-based applications, but our UPS systems feature the lowest prices in the industry, thereby boosting our resellers' margins," said Keelin Wyman, Tripp Lite's Executive Vice President. "In addition, we've tailored our programs and services to meet the resellers' specific needs, such as providing discounts, sales and technical support, distributing sales leads and more."
