Carbon3IT Ltd is a sustainable IT Consultancy. We aim to assist companies in reducing the financial and environmental cost of using IT in business. Companies benefit by reducing their energy bills; reducing their carbon footprint; meeting new and upcoming legislation or guidelines and minimising their impact on the environment.
So how do you do that?
We spend time understanding your business and how it currently uses technology to provide its products and services. We visit your premises and conduct a survey of your current hardware and software, talk to your management team so we understand your business and what you do and how you want to do it moving forward.
From this we produce an in depth report that details the current infrastructure and practices and makes recommendations as to how your business could reduce its costs, on a business case basis, going forward.
We constantly scan the market for products that could benefit our customers and have developed some great working relationships with a number of market leading organisations. We only ever recommend products and services that provide real benefits to our customers and are open about any commissions we receive on product sales.
Our portfolio of products includes PC power management and DCIM (Data Centre Infrastructure Management) tools, Data Centre Optimiser tools, Green PC's, Green storage and green servers, as well as smart meters.
If you engage us for any of our services you'll benefit from our extensive knowledge of the resource efficient, green IT or sustainable IT marketplace and practices throughout the industry.
