Verdiem Surveyor has enabled King County's agencies in Washington state to reduce energy consumption by an average of 38%, eliminating more than 3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
"Networked PCs definitely consume the majority of our office energy requirements. By implementing simple policies – such as turning off our monitors after 15 minutes of inactivity, and suspending PCs after one hour -- we were able to generate a surprising amount of savings. In addition to the benefits of the visibility that the Surveyor reporting function provides on our overall carbon, energy, and dollar savings, the best part about Surveyor is its 'Wake on WAN' functionality that allows our employees to wake their machines remotely when they are working from home. This countywide effort has yielded tremendous benefits that will ultimately help us better serve our residents."
— Bob Neddo, King County's Central Information Technology Enterprise Services Manager
