Verdiem Surveyor

Power management for PCs, Macs, network and print devices

Verdiem Surveyor

Verdiem Surveyor from Aptean helps accurately measure PC and Mac energy consumption, enforce policies for greater energy efficiency, and optimize savings.

WHO IT'S FOR

For organizations with large PC/Mac fleets, a volume of print jobs and consistent, enterprise-wide software updates and patches.

HOW IT'S DIFFERENT

Verdiem Surveyor delivers the most accurate data on IT device utilization. The patented solution combines keyboard, mouse, CPU, print network and disk activity to build a highly accurate model of device utilization that is the only independently verified and validated solution. This reliable information can be shared throughout the company via dashboard reports that provide easy-to-understand quantitative results for dollars saved, energy consumption reduced, and CO2 emissions lowered.

WHY YOU NEED IT

IT equipment consumes a massive amount of energy, taking steps to monitor and organize energy efficiency will save money for the bottom line, make the IT network more effective and provide a longer equipment lifecycle.

PC POWER MANAGEMENT

Surveyor is a highly scalable platform supporting hundreds to hundreds of thousands of devices. The solution overcomes deficiencies in the PC operating system that cause sleep disorders, resulting in higher output and limited savings. The flexible power management policies from Surveyor support distributed workforces with policies by role, location, or department.

ENTERPRISE PC WAKE

Surveyor reliably wakes the PC fleet for security updates and patch management. Typical Wake on LAN implementations are only 60-70% effective, leaving your PC fleet exposed to vulnerabilities. Surveyor Wake on WAN delivers 90%+ wake effectiveness.

Surveyor wakes computers through a Wake on WAN proxy computer, which is autoelected on each subnet. The proxy is kept awake and works with the Surveyor server to receive wake requests and forwards them to the other computers on the same subnet.

END USER PRINT ANALYTICS

Surveyor monitors all print jobs and PC-connected printers, deliver valuable insights into the print activity of local vs. networked printers. With Surveyor, IT can flag the most used local printers and shift volume toward less expensive networked printers. The insight delivered includes 30+ reports identifying the top 10 most active end users, largest documents printed, and most used printers.
