San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
EMCO Software, a leading provider of PC power management solutions for Windows networks, has announced a special offer available for academic and non-profit organizations. This offer allows academic and non-profit customers to order EMCO Remote Shutdown with a 30% discount off the regular price to achieve energy savings and reduce carbon emissions. Deploying a PC power management solution can reduce the organization’s overall annual energy consumption by up to 15 percent and cut power expenses by up to $50 per PC per year.
EMCO Remote Shutdown is a centralized PC power management solution for Windows that allows network administrators to perform remote shutdown, wake up, reboot and other operations remotely in a local network. Remote operations can be initiated manually by the network administrator or performed automatically. The application works as a Windows service, so it's possible to schedule operations to be executed automatically at a defined time. Using schedules allows network administrators to automate computer power management operations across the entire organization.
EMCO Remote Shutdown can help network administrators to significantly reduce power consumption and carbon emission by powering computers on and off on a schedule. It guarantees that computers will not stay unused but powered on during nights and weekends. Using this simple approach can save thousands of dollars per year even for small organizations. Only in the US, it can save $2.9 billion that is wasted every year for powering 110 million unused PCs.
Using a power management solution can result in huge savings for educational organizations, which usually have a large number of PCs that should be centrally managed. EMCO Remote Shutdown allows network administrators to set up custom power management rules for every computer class depending on its workload, specific requirements and the academic schedule. All required operations can be performed from a single graphic console by just one administrator, who can manage hundreds of computer classes and thousands of PCs remotely.
"The main advantage of EMCO Remote Shutdown is that it's a really simple solution that can be deployed quickly in any network. It requires no up-front infrastructure investment, long-term contract or lengthy subscription agreement. Network administrators can install it on a server and set it up within minutes to get immediate results", Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, says.

EMCO Remote Shutdown can run on a Windows platform starting from Windows XP through the latest Windows x86 and x64 desktop and server platforms.
