Get the full picture

The process isn’t a quick gimmick – we will spend several days spread over a month to talk to your staff, review your systems and measure current energy efficiency. We use our PowerMON software to benchmark your systems and combine this with other data to give you a complete picture of where you currently stand. At the conclusion you will have all the figures you need to make informed IT energy management decisions.

Some IT energy audits only look at a cross section of computers – if possible we like to monitor all systems and gather data over several weeks to give you the full picture.

A typical audit includes:

Time Action
Week One Meet with your IT staff and map out your existing systems
Meet your IT purchasing team and review existing purchasing criteria
Review existing energy mitigation strategies
Install monitoring software to benchmark live systems
Week Two Further discussion with IT staff - review deployment and update policies
Sample existing PC energy requirements

Week Three Remove monitoring software
Week Four Deliver independent report
