V1 toasts Green IT Awards success for second year running
Version One, in partnership with Blenheim Palace, wins ‘Environmental Project of the Year’ category at prestigious Green IT Awards ceremony
Document management and imaging software author, V1, in partnership with Blenheim Palace, has won the ‘Environmental Project of the Year’ category of the Green IT Awards 2011. This is the second successive year that V1 has been declared a Green IT Awards winner after its tree planting scheme won the ‘Best Carbon Offsetting Scheme of the Year’ category in 2010. This year’s winners were announced at an awards ceremony on 19 May 2011 held at London Zoo.
The Green IT Awards (www.greenITawards.co.uk) recognise the outstanding environmental products, suppliers and projects of 2010 and highlight the companies and teams that have made significant contributions to improving the IT industry’s environmental performance.
Blenheim Palace is the ancestral home of the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. As a prestigious World Heritage Site, Blenheim Palace wanted to reduce its impact on the environment and selected V1’s solutions to electronically store and process the 20,000 financial documents it handles each year.
V1’s systems have significantly streamlined Blenheim Palace’s financial processes, drastically reducing its environmental impact. The 20,000 purchase invoices Blenheim Palace receives each year are now being scanned, tagged to the appropriate record in the Palace’s Sage Line 500 accounting system and electronically stored. The original paper copies can then be destroyed. Purchase invoices are now retrieved electronically by authorised users, eliminating the need to photocopy, file and post paper documents.
Julian Buck, V1’s Managing Director, comments, “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award in partnership with Blenheim Palace, building on our previous success at last year’s Green IT Awards. Our innovative solutions help organisations to transform their efficiency levels and significantly reduce their environmental impact by eliminating the need to store, process and distribute large volumes of paper. We are therefore very proud to be recognised as an environmental leader within the IT industry once again.”
Frank Warn, Head of Finance at Blenheim Palace, says, “As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we’re passionate about doing as much as we can to reduce our impact on the environment. V1’s systems are helping us immensely with this task and winning this award is testimony to our continued commitment to becoming more environmentally conscious.”
V1’s portfolio of document management and imaging solutions enable the electronic creation, storage, retrieval, management, delivery and authorisation of business documents. By implementing V1’s systems, businesses significantly reduce their paper consumption, cutting costs and improving process efficiencies whilst supporting their environmental agendas.
