Lower PC Energy Costs

Faronics Power Save dramatically reduces an organizations operating costs by eliminating unnecessary computer energy consumption. In fact, for every 1,000 computers Faronics Power save is deployed on, organizations will save up to $50,000 per year. Faronics Power Save keeps computers running when users need them, power them down when they are inactive and can prove its rapid return-on-investment through energy savings reports. Power Save is also non-disruptive – it analyzes CPU, disk, network, keyboard, mouse and application status before taking power management actions.

Escalating Energy Costs
Despite the evolution of operating systems, PCs continue to be significant energy wasters, especially during periods of inactivity. Since PC energy costs are not separated in utility bills, many organizations are unaware of the high costs of powering their PC networks. As electricity consumption and the price of energy continues to rise, organizations are finding their profits reduced due to higher operating costs.
