Public Relations Activities Raise Awareness of Verdiem, a Leader in IT Energy Management

05.17.2013 | Anne Lindberg

Verdiem, one of our Seattle-based clients, delivers IT energy efficiency solutions for mid-sized to enterprise customers across vertical industries. One of the reasons we love working with Verdiem is because they have compelling and timely stories to tell.

For example, Verdiem’s Surveyor allows customers to lower their operating expenses, sometimes significantly, by reducing energy waste using Verdiem software. Verdiem can point proudly to its many customer success stories, including Partners HealthCare, which is saving over $1.2 million per year on its energy bills using Verdiem.

And that fits nicely into the growing concern of environmental sustainability in the business world. Even the federal government has now mandated that U.S. commercial and government buildings must significantly reduce energy consumption. Verdiem is contributing to the reduction in energy consumption, such as that seen by Partners, by continuing to deliver new, innovative solutions to market and offering stellar support to its customer base – all of which are excellent fodder for PR.

Through announcements, contributed content and creative story pitches, Communiqué PR was able to generate 21 articles since spring 2012 to raise awareness about the growing need for IT energy management and Verdiem’s successful solutions.

Below is a list of those 21 publications, along with links to the articles.

  1. Environmental Leader, “Verdiem adds international energy rate coverage to IT management software”
