ESP/SurgeX today announced a partnership with Verdiem to address the plug load energy waste problem plaguing commercial buildings. This partnership combines Verdiem’s Surveyor software, that can reduce an organization’s energy and print-related operational costs by up to 30 percent, with ESP/SurgeX’s power protection and diagnostic technology, which has been proven to lower service costs.
The partnership gives dealers an intelligent energy management tool to drive tangible savings for their customers, differentiate themselves from competitors, and bridge the gap to more comprehensive IT management services. The software will be bundled with the ESP Next Gen Power Conditioning System (PCS), Digital QC power filter and future power protection products. It complements ESP/SurgeX’s other energy management offerings to provide customers with the most comprehensive solution in the industry.
Surveyor supposedly drives cost out of desktop computing environments by giving organizations the ability to centrally enforce energy efficiency polices and manage the power states of distributed PC fleets. The software identifies and tracks the usage and energy consumption of every desktop PC and allows IT to control PC power consumption by department, location, device type, employee and more. Surveyor also extends enterprise quality wake functionality to allow IT to gracefully wake up powered off devices to better manage system wide software updates, patches, and routine maintenance. In addition, Surveyor uniquely monitors end user print activity across an entire printer fleet, compiling actionable data that highlights inefficiencies directly related to how end users interact with their print environment. It provides visibility into print volumes and costs, across all equipment-networked and non-networked.
