ANAHEIM, Calif. – Nov. 15, 2023 – Targus®, the number one laptop bag brand in the US1 and a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced that its MiraLogic® Workspace Intelligence System has been named a CES® 2024 Innovation Award Honoree in the Sustainability, Eco-Design & Smart Energy category. CES’ elite panel of judges recognized MiraLogic as one of the most innovative products being introduced at CES 2024 which demonstrates key features and benefits that contribute to a more sustainable planet.
MiraLogic is a unique workspace intelligence system that combines both patented and patent-pending enterprise-grade hardware and proprietary cloud software to give technical and management teams full remote control and visibility over their modular IT ecosystems across the enterprise. This allows organizations to efficiently analyze, control, and manage their workspace assets anywhere (e.g., power consumption, workspace utilization, and real-time occupancy). By providing valuable, real-time insights to make data-driven decisions about running costs of power, energy, equipment, and desk usage, organizations can achieve their sustainability goals more effectively while empowering employees to work productively from anywhere.
“Today’s organizations need to support a distributed workforce efficiently and sustainably,” explains Ron DeCamp, Vice President, Global Product Management & Development, Targus. “Enterprise decisionmakers are concerned about the impact of lower office attendance and occupancy on wasted office space, inefficient asset support, and wasted energy costs. MiraLogic helps organizations solve these challenges by enabling them to reassess their working practices, aligning future decision-making around those priorities.”
MiraLogic fuses support capabilities with utilization and energy consumption monitoring analytics to create a secure, cloud-based workstation solution, offering businesses:
Its cloud-based software features an AWS-hosted user interface and dashboards, compatibility with all OS and browsers, no ‘Smart Dock’ agent software required to be installed on host devices, and a robust API capability for integration into third-party platforms (Managed Software, ERP, and SCCM), or similar.
The hardware comprises a universal USB-C dock (installed via the desktop, tray or VESA® mount), smart BT sensor (installed on or under the desk), smart retrofit adapter/smart gateway for legacy Targus docks, and smart power strip (installed under the desk).
Consumers and media can get a firsthand look and technical demonstration of MiraLogic, including its exciting, new software enhancements, at CES 2024, the most powerful tech event in the world happening in Las Vegas, Jan. 9th-12th. Targus’ booth #15945 will be located in the Central Hall within the Las Vegas Convention Center. Additionally, this revolutionary workspace management system will be on display in the CES Innovation Awards Showcase and at CES Unveiled, CES’ premier media preview event taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the evening of January 7th.
