Don’t let power surges jeopardize your work in TOTAL.
Written by Emilee O'Hair on July 5, 2016
Unfortunately, in the world we live in, power surges are possible. And it’s also possible for you to lose all of your work on an appraisal report if you don’t have the proper protection during a surge. All the time we hear customers say that they lost hours of work on a report in TOTAL because the power went out in their home or office building.
An Uninterruptable Power Source (UPS) is a small piece of equipment (about the size of a shoebox) that will protect your work during a power surge. A UPS works by storing energy via batteries and flywheels, and using this energy in the event of a utility failure. When your power goes out, your UPS will take effect and prevent your computer from shutting down, which means that all your reports and other work in TOTAL or WinTOTAL will be completely safe.
UPS apparatuses easily integrate with your PC through USB and Serial ports, and they won’t change the way TOTAL or WinTOTAL function on your computer. With a UPS, you can rest assured that power surges will no longer be a threat to your appraisal work.
