LONDON and PARIS, September 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On target for full ROI within a year of Verdiem deployment, with annual cost savings of approx. €100,000 across TF1 Group PC estate
Verdiem, a leader in IT energy management and efficiency software, has successfully deployed its Surveyor solution at TF1 Group - one of France's leading integrated media and entertainment groups and operator of France's no 1 TV channel for major events.
Surveyor's flexible functionality allows power saving policies to be precisely matched to customer requirements, resulting in dramatic reductions in TF1's PC energy consumption across some 4,000 PCs between 60 and 75 per cent.
TF1 wanted a PC power management solution that was reliable and transparent, and that would be effective while having zero impact on the end-user. Following a successful trial, Verdiem Surveyor was chosen by TF1 for its ability to unlock additional PC power savings of between 15 and 20 percent, in addition to those savings already achieved by its previous generation PC power management software.
M. Thierry Michalak, IT Director for TF1 said: "We trialled several PC power management solutions, and Verdiem's Surveyor solution - proposed by Greenvision - proved to be superior on both the functional and the technical level - generating a further 15 to 20 percent savings compared to rival solutions. The Verdiem software is also robust, and has no impact on TF1's network set-up."
Having compared four solutions in detail, and after several months of tests carried out by TF1's technical department, M. Thierry Michalak, found that Verdiem Surveyor "proved to be superior on both the functional and technical level."
The Verdiem solution deployment is on target for full Return on Investment within a year, with annual cost savings of approximately €100,000 across the TF1 Group's extensive PC estate. Two factors that were critical for TF1 were IT security and making sure that any PC power management solution had no impact on the group's existing network infrastructure.
Surveyor allows organisations such as TF1 to customise and implement specific energy management polices according to different group usage. Once the Verdiem client software is installed on the end-user PC, TF1's IT department can carry out updates or policy adjustments centrally without the need to disrupt users.
