The Beacon Award and its finalists represent excellence and innovation. A panel of IT experts assembled from around the world selected Wyse as a finalist. This honor re-enforces the validity of thin computing as a way to significantly reduce energy use in IT, reducing its impact on the environment, and making a material difference in energy costs to businesses. As a finalist, Wyse will use special IBM emblems highlighting Wyse’s leadership and innovation in Outstanding Energy & Environment (Green) Solutions.

“As our first entry into the IBM Beacon Award program, Wyse is honored to receive this recognition,” says Maryam Alexandrian, Senior VP of Sales and Channels at Wyse. “Finding new sources of energy is a problem we all face, so saving it is the first step. Wyse customers tell us they save over $50 a year in energy for each PC replaced with a Wyse thin client. That doesn’t sound like much, until you realize the thin client has paid for itself by those savings in as few as three years.”

IBM will provide Wyse with a Beacon Award trophy, announced in an IBM press release and promoted on IBM’s PartnerWorld Web site.
