In a cost conscious world where everyone aspires to be “Green” Power Manager lowers power costs and reduces CO2 emissions across the enterprise

Reading, UK – September 23rd 2009 – Maple5 Limited announce the introduction of Power Manager from Verismic. Power Manager is a solution for monitoring PC activity and enforcing changes to power settings across the enterprise. Typical savings range from £20.00 to £60.00 per computer per year with reduction in Co2 emissions of up to 60%.

“Power Manager is a new breed of Power Management solution”, said Daniel Power, Sales Director at Maple5. “Customers need to understand which users are using which computers, and at what time of day, to take an intelligent approach to aggressively manage power settings without impacting users’ productivity.”

“The problem for IT in the enterprise is understanding just how much power is being used and how much it is costing the organisation. IT Managers normally do not see the electricity bill so it is a case of out of site out of mind”, says Mark McGinn, Managing Director of Verismic. “Power Manager delivers visibility of power consumption, the associated costs and CO2 emissions, and then allows them to impose power down schedules.”

Power Manager retails for £15.00 per machine before quantity discounts and the cost will typically be paid back in a period of 4 to 6 months with significant ongoing savings over the following years.

* Calculations for CO2 analysis.
A typical computer and monitor consumes 84 watts an hour.1
This equates to 2016 Watts per day and 504 Kwh over the course of a year based on a 5 day week.
0.537 kgs of Carbon are released per 1Kwh of power.2
This equates to approximate 270 kgs of Carbon a year per computer.
A tree planted and grown for 10 years sequesters 10.5 kgs of carbon.3
To recover the 270 kgs of Carbon used by a computer in a year would require 25 trees.
