Risk-Free PC Power Management Now Available from New Boundary Technologies



Web-based PwrSmart Service requires no up-front investment or long-term contract,
instantly delivers energy savings and carbon reductions

MINNEAPOLIS, - New Boundary Technologies® today launched PwrSmart(TM) Service, a risk-free PC power management solution that instantly delivers energy savings and reduces carbon emissions to meet tightening facility budgets and increased corporate sustainability requirements.

Built for facility managers, finance directors and corporate sustainability officers, PwrSmart Service is delivered through a web browser. The service is free for the first 30 days. PwrSmart Service requires no up-front infrastructure investment, software maintenance, support contract or lengthy subscription agreement. Subscribing to PwrSmart Service costs a fraction of the monthly energy savings organizations will generate by deploying PC power management.

Companies implementing PC power management on 5,000 PCs can save $350,000 in energy costs annually and prevent nearly 9,000 tons of CO2 emissions - the equivalent of planting 1,845 acres of trees or taking 1,490 cars off the road - according to government estimates. Industry estimates cite that PC power management can reduce an organization's overall annual energy consumption up to 15 percent.

"PwrSmart Service is one of the few products, IT or otherwise, that reduces hard costs immediately without requiring any up-front investment or long-term contract," Tom Diamond, president of New Boundary Technologies. "Organizations can pay-as-they-go with PwrSmart Service and start centrally controlling hundreds to thousands of PCs from a simple browser-based application that generates energy savings from day one. The enormous savings generated through PwrSmart Service can easily fund other green initiatives within organizations."

"The solution is so simple and powerful, we've had a number of partners, including utility companies, approach us about distributing PwrSmart Service to their business clients," added Diamond.

Key PwrSmart Service Features

Interactive interface provides real-time PC energy savings; user dashboard is accessible from any web browser with a Silverlight plug-in.

Built-in energy auditing capability enables quick energy savings insight, ongoing optimization of energy usage and comprehensive reporting for energy rebate and sustainability programs.

Analysis engine presents data in visually appealing graphs and charts, with the ability to click and drill-down for additional energy/cost savings details.

Patented technology automatically applies power management settings without manual intervention and enforces settings even if end-users try to disable or change them.

Web-based service delivers real-time updates with the latest features and enhancements without the hassle of traditional software upgrades.

PwrSmart Service is the industry's first centralized PC power management solution designed specifically as a web-based service.

"We are excited to distribute PwrSmart Service; it's re-seller friendly," said Thorir Eggertsson, founder and chief executive officer for Inuit AB. "As a browser-based solution, PwrSmart Service's low barrier-to-entry makes it an extremely viable option for companies considering PC power management to reduce energy consumption, extend the life of IT assets and support green IT initiatives. The service's graphical interface, 'hands-off' administration and comprehensive reporting functions stand out compared to other 'clunky' and overpriced centralized PC power management solutions currently available on the market."
