Barzilai and Assaf Harofeh, two of Israel’s largest medical centers, have chosen PowerPlug Pro for PC energy savings, reducing their organizations’ personal computers power consumption. Barzilai and Assaf Harofeh selected PowerPlug Pro to manage the electricity consumption of their PC environment. From the get-go, following a successful extensive pilot that demonstrated the product’s ability to save power without affecting the end-user productivity or the needs of the IT department on several hundreds of computers, PowerPlug Pro’s flexibility and adaptability emerged as the key success factor for their targets. PowerPlug cooperated with Barzilai and Assaf Harofeh to optimize savings plans for the maximal achievable savings without interrupting users. Critical PCs were identified and excluded from power savings, and dynamic exclusions were also put in place – a PC running certain medical software, for example, would be excluded from power savings until that software would be exited. With tailored power plans configured, savings on a mass scale began.
