Energy Management Savings Not Just for Large Enterprises

December 7, 2015 - 1 Comment

In all my years as an IT professional, I’ve witnessed a lot of deals and collaborations between companies. But, it wasn’t until I joined Cisco Energy Management that I saw a partnership with a hippo.

Did that get your attention? I hope so.

The truth is Cisco Energy Management did partner with a hippo – Planet Hippo, the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the UK to offer cloud Energy Management capabilities to its customer base of small- and mid-sized enterprises.

What I like about the cloud-based model is that it does not require additional hardware or operational costs associated with on-premises software deployments, which removes the financial barriers that many smaller enterprises have to overcome. Today, the Planet Hippo and Cisco Energy Management partnership works together to:

  • Help bring innovation to customers in new markets
  • Work with any ICT device connected to the network, regardless of device type or vendor
  • Cut energy consumption for savings costs of up to 35 percent
  • Deliver a return on investment within a few months
  • Satisfy the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organizations in the UK

We are excited about our partnership with Planet Hippo and I encourage you to watch the video below to learn more about how this solution is helping businesses thrive.
