Energy optimization software that’s smart enough to know when it makes sense to wind down
The Simegy system optimizes the energy consumption of printers by dynamically setting timeouts, with minimal user impact and extremely low administrative overhead. The widely used solutions to manage the printers’ timeouts are static: a set of rules is decided and statically set once. Automated statistical analysis of the print activity of the fleet brings dynamic capabilities by individually updating every device timeout, and can help reduce the power consumption by up to 20%.
