The most recent high-level rolling blackouts in South Africa are having an adverse effect on a number of the economy’s foundational industries. With loadshedding affecting business sectors and entire industries, in addition to food security and mobile networks, the nation’s economy is facing an unprecedented situation.
But in addition to the harm done to the economy as a whole, certain industries are increasingly raising concerns about the impact brought on by Eskom’s loadshedding. There are costs associated with downtime and business disruption – sometimes up to three times per day. Many companies also face significant equipment risk, which drives up maintenance costs.
This can have an adverse effect on your time and attendance monitoring as biometric terminals and other access control devices rely on electricity in order to operate. The result can be missed punches and gaps in your monitoring which not only impacts your business productivity, but also your profitability.
