Logicalis Expands Its Green ICT Portfolio

Logicalis announces that it has expanded its green ICT portfolio by partnering with Verdiem. Under the terms of the agreement, Logicalis will promote, sell and implement Verdiem software to its existing and new clients as part of the Logicalis Green ICT programme in the UK, Responsibility. In addition to the formal unveiling of their alliance, Logicalis and United Access have started working to deliver part of the Green ICT message to organisations, by the deployment of the Verdiem "SURVEYOR" software which eliminates PC power waste and generates significant and demonstrable savings on energy bills, with the lowering of carbon emissions.

The SURVERYOR solution looks to reduce the electrical consumption of PC fleets by 30% plus, and on average is saving over 200 kWh per year, per computer. With Return On Investment (ROI) of around 12 to 18 months, and combining a verifiable and auditable reporting process, organisations can be confident in starting to address the need to reduce carbon emissions, and publicly promoting social and environmental responsibilities and green credentials to customers, employees, management, shareholders and investors alike.

Studies show that PCs and monitors use as much as 14 percent of all power consumed in office environments. By using Verdiem's SURVEYOR, organisations can centrally manage the sleep, shut down and wake cycles, to eliminate PC power waste and reduce spending on energy. Based on its existing customer base, annual use of Verdiem technology reduces greenhouse gas emissions, at a rate equal to taking more than 9,800 passenger cars off the road for an entire year, or conserving 5, 181, 586 gallons of petrol.
