LONDON, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Full return-on-investment expected within a single year
Verdiem [http://www.verdiem.com ], a leader in IT energy management and efficiency software, has successfully deployed its Surveyor solution at Staffordshire University [http://www.staffs.ac.uk ]. In an effort to control rising electricity costs, and as part of its ongoing Green Initiative drive, Staffordshire University selected Verdiem Surveyor to help reduce power wastage across its estate of over 4,000 PCs deployed across multiple sites for staff and student use.
"Verdiem's Surveyor solution has enabled us to quickly and easily save energy across the University's PC estate," said Jay Burke, Senior IT Officer (Client Tech & App) Information Services, Staffordshire University. "Using Surveyor, we saw an immediate saving of 60 percent on student PC power usage and 25 percent on staff PCs. We're now on course to achieve a full return on our Verdiem investment within a single year."
"More importantly, Surveyor is proving a highly flexible solution - allowing us to design 'policies' for each different set of PCs according to usage - whether it's for staff, students, or specific faculties such as our Media Department that needs to run PCs continuously for high performance video or rendering applications," adds Jay. "With Verdiem, we're able to save power without getting in the way of the needs of our staff and students."
Steve Bignell, Technical Director for Verdiem, explains: "When you're a large organisation such as Staffordshire University with thousands of PCs spread out across multiple locations and campuses, thousands of pounds worth of wasted power consumption are generated when PCs are left on but not used. With power costs continuing to rise, the opportunity to make savings through more efficient energy usage is an attractive bottom-line gain."
Verdiem helped define the PC power management market and has now extended its leadership into IT energy management and efficiency software. Verdiem Surveyor enables customers to centrally control and reduce the energy used by PCs, Macs, and network devices running Cisco EnergyWise without impacting end users. Nearly 700 corporations, government agencies and universities have deployed Surveyor on 2 million devices. Based in Seattle, Wash., Verdiem is backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
