In today’s world of constantly evolving technology, things can get pretty confusing. We’re going to take a look at how you can drive down your Business Costs, using new technologies – specifically with your Monitors.
If your company’s keen to lower energy bills, your monitors are a great place to start. The great thing about Monitors is you can see some real results, quickly. Take Philips, they don’t expect you to compromise your workforce health, or encounter hot desk issues just to be greener and save a few quid. Computer use accounts for 2% of global carbon emissions1. That’s roughly equal to the emissions produced by the aviation industry, think about that for a moment. How many of your staff leave their monitors turned on overnight? How much are you spending to power your monitors?
What technology can help?
One way to combat is using a PowerSensor. This is pretty much a built-in ‘People Sensor’ that Philips have developed. Located at the front of the monitor, it senses your presence and automatically reduces energy consumption and with that your energy bill, by up to 80%2 when you’re away. It enables you to effortlessly reduce your energy consumption and achieve easy operational savings without you putting the onus on you or your people. The PowerSensor works based on infra-red technology (Not so new, I know). Each time you step away from your monitor, it dims and reduces your consumption, as soon as you return, the monitor restores to normal brightness, and operates as normal.
All-in-one USB-C Dock
When we talk about reducing costs, we’re not just talking about operational costs. Philips also have a USB-C monitor. This probably doesn’t mean a lot to you right now, but I can assure you it can help. Is your office open planned? Do you have issues hot desking? USB-C means all-in-one connection, so you can simply turn up, plug your laptop in using one cable (not to mention that you can transfer a 4k movie in just 60 seconds using this very same cable). You will then be powering the monitor and connected to the monitor, all by plugging in one cable. Imagine that, you can supply your staff with laptops, and kit your office out with monitors, and the rest is done for you! This could save you a headache with your field staff or home workers! Just think about the savings on cables, adaptors, time, and people – not to mention the ease of stress for your workforce!
