The new licence gives the School, College or University an Unlimited licence without the need to account for new or retiring PCs.
In any environment there are always PCs left on outside of working hours but in an education environment its much more likely according to Richard Ward, Partner at PeachWorx “Staff are often far too busy to go round shutting down PCs and students don’t take responsibility for doing it, the outcome is a much larger electricity bill and increased CO2 emissions” said Ward.
According to PeachWorx, often conventional methods like scripts and policies fail due to device drivers getting in the way and automated procedures can be very costly on a per PC basis.
TaskForceCO2 works by allowing power schedules to be applied to networked PCs. This lets the Organisation shut down, standby, hibernate and wake up PCs automatically thereby saving significant sums of money in between.
"Our Unique Site Wide Licence is at a low fixed cost and comes with 2 years support and upgrades. It means any educational body can be saving in just a matter of weeks” said Ward.
All Education establishments that want to take part can visit www.peachworx.com to get a free trial copy and details of how to obtain Educational pricing.
Ward added "TaskForceCO2 is currently installed on tens of thousands of PCs and with a free trial copy that works on up to 250 PCs for 14 days, its easy for any education user to establish what the likely cost savings would be."
