Create a baseline for energy savings
The first step is to establish energy consumption measurements across your fleet of PCs and Macs prior to enforcing any power saving policies. We’ll work closely with you to verify these initial energy measurements. Next, we’ll help you devise appropriate policies to start lowering your energy costs. With our highly accurate measurement and verification approach, you’ll have a high degree of confidence in your energy savings results to share with your executive team and employees. In fact, we’re the only solution that has been independently validated and verified.
Automatically detect and organize devices
As new IT devices are added to your network, our flexible rules engine allows automatic grouping based on Active Directory attributes, IP/subnet, operating system, and more. This reduces the management overhead and leverages your investment in Active Directory.
Create policies based on actual user activity and schedules
Verdiem Surveyor captures the most accurate device activity information through detection of mouse clicks and keyboard strokes. With this detailed information on user activity, you can create profiles of different types of workers in your organization. Based on their profile, you can establish an appropriate energy management policy that balances their work patterns with energy savings.

Align unlimited policies with workforce activity patterns, schedules, and locations
Patterns of work and work hours vary in most organizations, especially by department and location. Surveyor gives you the flexibility to create policies that accommodate specific needs rather than a one-size-fits all approach. For example, a customer support team may need longer time intervals before moving their monitors and PCs to a lower power state so they can stay responsive to customers; whereas, a finance group may be in more meetings and therefore a shorter time period is appropriate.
Predict accurate savings using device-specific energy consumption
We include a pre-populated database of device specific watt draw information. We also give you the flexibility to add your own measurement results. This information flows directly into savings calculations and reports.
Accurately track usage across multiple energy rates, currencies, and locations
Energy costs vary in different locations, of course, but also from season-to-season or even hour-to-hour. In some locations, time-of-use (TOU) energy rates can change up to 15 times daily! Surveyor allows customers to capture energy costs through time and across multiple currencies to accurately reflect energy expenditures and savings in each location. In addition, an organization’s global energy consumption can be analyzed, translated and reported in a single currency, streamlining the process of tracking cost savings and energy expenditures throughout the enterprise.
