Power management is a set of features that provide the ability to control powering on and off  of your computer through intelligent local controls and remote controls from within your network.   Power reduction is enabled through a series of customized policies that are uniquely developed to suit your environment.  For example, at SyAM, we begin the process by performing a power audit across the entire network.  This audit will allow our team to work with administrators by identifying potential savings opportunities and customizing an automated schedule for your network.


Why is power management critical to your network?

There are several benefits that power management provides.  The most significant benefit within the educational space is the reduction of energy usage.  With this reduction of ever-increasing energy costs, your organization will be saving money within the allotted budget.  Opening funding to be used in other areas that may need focus and attention.  Where needed, the software can be scheduled to power up groups of systems enabling them for software updating.  These updates can be ready for immediate use by end users.
