Manufacturers Beware -- Slow Computers Are Damaging Your Bottom Line

Foregoing the Cost of New Equipment, Defragmentation Technology Yields Significant Cost Savings

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - As upper management achieves increased productivity from its headcount by mandating 40-hour-plus workweeks, today's IT managers now stand equally responsible for upping an organization's bottom line by seeking increased efficiency from outdated and slow computer systems.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.

In promoting its Manufacturing in America campaign, the Department of Commerce points out that: The competitive pressure on U.S. manufacturers has forced them to cut costs, to adopt lean manufacturing techniques, and to implement quality assurance programs that guarantee zero defects in production. Innovation in products, processes, and services has become a key determinant for success.

Recent advances by software companies such as Diskeeper® Corporation (www.diskeeper.com) -- a major developer of comprehensive defragmentation software solutions -- allow a broad array of manufacturing and processing plants to profit from greater efficiency without interrupting daily production fitting into the model of lean manufacturing that is proving essential for companies to remain in the market.

As an example, a manufacturer with 100 employees on computers whose hourly computer slows are only 30 seconds per hour would waste more than $28,000 annually, figured at the Department of Labor national manufacturing average of $16.29 per hour.

"In manufacturing, quality and quantity are vital, and often directly proportional to revenue. Fragmentation can be a serious bottleneck that introduces inefficiencies into a product pipeline, resulting in reduced product quantity and 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.

Applications such as Diskeeper 2007 with InvisiTasking™ work on a constant basis to boost performance of slow computer systems and keep programs running at maximum potential.

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.
