Targeted at senior finance personnel, IT Directors and individuals tasked with reducing their organisationâs carbon emissions, these solutions replace paper-based processes with the electronic creation, delivery, storage, retrieval and authorisation of business documents (invoices, statements, contracts etc.).
Public and private sector organisations are being increasingly pressurised to cut their carbon emissions. The âGreening Government ICTâ plan recently published by the Minister for Transformational Government Tom Watson highlights key areas public sector departments need to address to achieve carbon neutrality by 2012. These include cutting the number of printers across the organisation and reducing the amount being printed. The carbon reduction strategy for the NHS across England has also set the NHS a target of 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. Document management is key to achieving these goals.
Lynne Munns, General Manager from Version One says, âCarbon is emitted during the manufacture of toner cartridges and when producing, printing, transporting and storing paper. By replacing paper processes with electronic document management solutions, carbon is cut and trees are saved from destruction. Organisations can also enjoy more streamlined purchase-to-pay and order-to-cash processes and a swift return on their investment.â
