MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – May 17 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Visionsoft, a U.K.-based software company announces the launch of a new software product – PowerOut – with a specially-enhanced feature that allows companies to automatically switch off multiple computers at a specified time.

(c) Send2PressVisionsoft estimates that as many as 60 percent of all users never switch off their PC. This practice can be costly and may exceed $200 per PC, per year. When multiplied by numerous computers, the numbers really add up.

“And, with summertime at our doorstep and people taking more vacations,” Richard Ward, CEO of Visionsoft, explained, “companies will risk their computers being powered on for weeks at a time without any usage.”

This excessive power usage not only wastes money, but also contributes to harming the environment. People who choose to use PowerOut will benefit in an array of ways that include: cost savings; a greener footprint; fire-risk reduction; increased PC security; and minimization of equipment burn out.

Users can choose to place a PC on standby or hibernate within a certain time span, or at any given time of day. Alternatively, the PC can be switched off completely.

“Investing in PowerOut is not only investing in the financial well being of a company, but also investing in the environment,” Ward explained. “Millions of PCs are left turned on around the globe and waste a massive amount of energy; now is the time to take action.”

PowerOut (www.visionsoft.com/product.asp?prod) is a simple, easy-to-use network interface for power-management options. Within minutes of installing PowerOut, an effective power-management policy will be in place. Low-cost, multi-site licenses are also available.

“With a global client base that ranges from small businesses to multi-nationals, we are uniquely placed to discover, develop and support leading-edge solutions,” Ward said.

Visionsoft has been helping companies manage their IT assets since 1989; headquartered in the U.K., they also have offices in the U.S., Australia, and France. For more information about the company, visit: www.visionsoft.com.
