CEOs Beware: Slow Computers Are Damaging Your Bottom Line

Defragmentation Technology Yields Significant Cost Savings for Corporations Thinking Ahead

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 11, 2007) - As senior executives increase productivity from their headcount by slashing down time, increasing productivity demands, and encouraging workweeks that surpass 40 hours, today's IT managers now stand equally responsible for upping a corporation's bottom line by seeking increased efficiency from sometimes outdated and slow computer systems. In a case of "doing more with less," IT departments are increasingly turning to advanced defragmentation software that extracts greater speed out of every machine to raise the bar for efficiency without having to purchase new hardware.

Recent advances by forward thinking software companies such as Diskeeper® Corporation ( allow a broad array of businesses to profit from greater efficiency without interrupting daily production, conforming to a model that is proving essential for companies to remain competitive.

Applications such as Diskeeper 2007 with InvisiTasking™ use advanced technology, to keep drives defragmented without using up precious system resources, in order to boost the performance of slow computer systems and keep applications running at maximum potential.

Recently Renasant Bank in Tupelo, Mississippi, performed an evaluation of defragmentation software solutions and found that servers with Diskeeper were able to handle, on average, five more workstations than servers without. During the reliability test, the servers that were defragmenting files automatically had up to 10% higher uptime than servers that didn't have defragmentation software automatically running.

IDC, a premier global provider of market intelligence, estimates the savings to Renasant Bank is $19,520 per year per 100 servers, with a total return on investment (ROI) of 165%.

"In business today, quality and quantity are vital, and often directly proportional to revenue. Computer slows are a serious bottleneck that result in reduced user productivity. With Diskeeper, you get faster computers and a more efficient staff to maintain high-yield and income," says Michael Materie, Production Manager for Diskeeper.

As an example, a corporation with 250 employees whose hourly computer slows equal only 30 seconds per hour waste more than $76,000 annually, figured at the Department of Labor national average wage of $17.63 per hour.

While this issue has been readily apparent to many IT managers for sometime, CEOs are just now becoming aware of the costs that arise from slow computer systems. Not only is there a cost benefit by having a more productive staff, but IT departments can now lessen the burden of inquires as to why the computers are slow, or even more costly, replacing equipment to solve the problem.

Established in 1981, Diskeeper Corporation develops comprehensive disk defragmentation software designed to help speed up slow computer systems, along with simplifying the workload for IT administrators.
