Princess Alexandra hospital NHS trust saves £27,000 per year with 1E

The SCCM Power Management tool from 1E, NightWatchman, provides the enterprise with total control over the entire PC estate, 24 hours a day, with unparalleled PC Power Management and Patch Management.

The Princess Alexandra NHS Trust, based in Harlow Essex, was established as an NHS Trust in April 1995. It is a District General Hospital providing a range of services including intensive care and neonatal cots, plus community paediatric and midwifery services to the local communities.

The Trust operates from a number of different locations including the main site in Harlow, together with outpatient and diagnostic services throughout the region. The Trust provides care and treatment to a population of nearly 258,000 people, employs 2,887 staff and has a turnover of £143million.

Under constant pressure to cut costs, all departments within the Princess Alexandra Hospital were expected to find ways to save. There were also growing concerns about the Princess Alexandra NHS Trust’s energy consumption, related to the new carbon reduction strategy for the NHS, “Saving Carbon, Improving Health”, which has set targets for the service to reduce its carbon emissions by 10% by 2015.

The ability to benchmark current energy consumption and determine short and long-term savings proved a compelling argument for the Trust, which installed NightWatchman across the entire PC estate, leaving it in passive mode to ensure comprehensive data collection prior to a full deployment. Accident and Emergency, X-ray and some other departments require 24-hour computer access, and this needed to be accounted for both in terms of energy savings and scheduling. NightWatchman offers this flexibility without compromising the savings an organization can make.

The calculations made by NightWatchman during passive mode indicate that after offsetting its costs, the Trust can expect to save in excess of £27,000 per year, equating to an annual reduction of over 420 tonnes of CO2. Don’t let IT cost you the earth.
