Why Compudyne Uses PCs Featuring vPro Technology

  1. 1. Compudyne and Intel® vPro™ technology-based PCs As a leading Managed Services Provider in Minnesota, Compudyne uses PCs featuring Intel vPro technology in conjunction with their existing management console software to reduce PC downtime by 50% and save their customers $97 per year per PC in power cost. Intel® vPro™ technology-based PCs are your standard recommendation. Why? “PCs based on Intel vPro technology allow us to accelerate repairs, especially for customers that are a long distance from us. They allow us to reduce the amount of PC downtime that our customers experience, both through faster repairs and by increasing the amount of maintenance activity that can be done after hours. And finally, vPro allows us to deliver significant power cost savings to our customers by enabling proactive power management. We get all this from a technology that only adds about $30 to the price of the PC and takes, at most, 5 minutes to implement. That’s a win-win for us and our customers.” Todd Sieger, President and COO, Compudyne Reduction in OS repair times “With vPro’s hardware-based KVM Remote Control, we can fix most OS problems without rolling a truck. It’s a big deal when we can fix a customer problem without leaving the office. We cover a large geographic area, and being able to fix a PC remotely can mean avoiding a two-hour service call. You’re looking at a significant savings and a nice increase in efficiency. Overall, I estimate we’re reducing OS repair times by 33%.” Todd Sieger, President and COO, Compudyne

Reduction in PC downtime for customers “Customers don't like being interrupted for PC updates, but those updates are critical. vPro-based PCs allow us to do the updates in the middle of the night without bothering the customer. This is a big part of why vPro-based PCs let us reduce PC downtime by 50% “In addition, as the end of the month approaches and we get ready to prepare patching reports, we usually have a bunch manual updates we have to do to clean up machines that have been missed. vPro lets us avoid this extra work while improving our customers’ security profile.” Todd Sieger, President and COO, Compudyne Saving customers $97 per PC per year in energy cost “vPro allows us to proactively manage our customers’ PC power state through our Kaseya solution, saving our typical customer $97 per year per PC in power cost. This is a significant advantage and a great new value add for our customers. For example, we have school district customers with PC labs; getting all those PCs consistently shut down after hours is difficult for the customer, and our ability to manage that for them is a great offering.” Todd Sieger, President and COO, Compudyne
