With more than 1 million desktops now using its power management software technology, Verdiem is adding another major customer this week -- chocolate giant Cadbury -- as well as as major technology partner -- security software developer McAfee. The company also has earned Windows 7 logo certification as a Microsoft Gold Certified partner.

Here are the details:

  • Verdiem is now part of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. What this means is that its Surveyor 5.2 Power Management Solution is compatible with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator platform. More simply put, Surveyor can be integrated more closely into McAfee's broader security, patch and systems management applications.
  • Verdiem's latest enterprise account win (at least publicly) is Cadbury, which is using the Surveyor software on 1,500 computers within it's U.S. and Canadian divisions. The company reports a savings of about 30 percent in energy costs EVEN THOUGH close to 90 percent of Cadbury's corporate clients are notebook computers and not desktops. Cadbury plans to deploy Surveyor across all 15,000 of its PCs globally by the end of 2009. This is all part of Cadbury's "Purple Goes Green" program, under which the company is pledging to cut absolute net carbon emissions by 50 percent by the year 2020.
