Some businesses are very environmentally conscious. Others are not. But every business wants to know if there’s a chance to save money – don’t they?

So here’s the question: do you know how much your business could save on energy costs?

The average business will know how much it spends each month or quarter on power, but will have very little idea how much of that total is wasted on devices and systems being left powered on but unused.

Here’s where NetSupport DNA can help you get ahead. Its Energy Monitor checks whether your computers are powered on or off  – and its local monitoring component keeps an accurate record of each time a computer is powered on, off or hibernates.

Once it has recorded the times of day each computer was being used, it uses an average "power consumption per device" calculation to work out a baseline rate of energy use for all of the computers across your organisation.

Armed with this information, you can then use the Power Management feature to set policies to power on or shut down PCs at specific times of the day. There are also rules you can apply to sleep/log out/power off systems if they’ve been inactive for a specified length of time. And you can apply different policies to different departments. Good, eh!

So many businesses could begin to make savings like this, if they were aware of their energy use patterns. Even smaller savings mount up over time. And after all, the money is better in your pocket than in those of the utilities companies.

You can be one step ahead with NetSupport DNA’s help. And you’ll earn your green points to boot!
