Is your organization wasting significant energy powering PCs when not in use? You are not alone. Studies show that up to 64% of computers are left on at full power at the end of the workday. This unproductive energy usage may account for up to 15% of your organization's total energy consumption. PwrSmart Software eliminates this waste — saving significant dollars for your organization.

PwrSmart Software gives you immediate energy savings by automatically powering down computers when not in use. PwrSmart Software maximizes your energy efficiency by automatically and centrally controlling your PC's behavior when inactive. With a quick ROI of typically less than three months, you can have an immediate impact on your budget and accelerate your organization's sustainability initiatives.

PwrSmart Software offers you a simple way to reduce your PC related energy costs by as much as 60% through centrally controlling and automating PC power behaviors. Powering PCs is the third largest energy consumer within most organizations.

With energy costs rising, it is even more imperative to start today in cutting your energy usage and reducing waste. Organizations implementing PwrSmart Software will typically save between $25 and $75 per PC annually. On average, this means an organization with 1,000 PCs can reduce their annual energy costs by $70,000. How much can you save?

 

Executing sustainability efforts can be daunting and complex. With all the possible programs out there, where do you start? Cutting your carbon footprint with PwrSmart Software is simple. PwrSmart Software offers an easy, yet high impact sustainability initiative. Better yet - PwrSmart Software is one of the few sustainability initiatives that produces substantial, hard savings to help fund your other green initiatives.

Impact

In three years, an organization with 1,000 PCs can prevent approximately 1,800 tons of excess CO2 from being emitted. This is equivalent to planting greater than 350 acres of trees or removing roughly 300 cars from the highway. No matter the size of your organization, you can make a difference.

PwrSmart Software creates a self-monitoring, self-maintaining PC power environment that provides you direct control over your energy usage. Utilizing patented technology, PwrSmart Software makes it simple to dramatically reduce your energy costs and carbon emissions without impacting user productivity.
