Virgin Trains and V1 steam ahead with Green IT Awards success

Virgin Trains, in partnership with document management and imaging software author, V1, fought off stiff competition to win the ‘Environmental project of the year’ category in this year’s Green IT Awards. The award was presented during a prestigious ceremony held at London Zoo on 19 April 2012.

This is the third consecutive year that V1’s software has been honoured at the Green IT Awards.

The Green IT Awards recognise the outstanding environmental products, suppliers and projects of 2012 and highlight the companies and teams that have made significant contributions to improving the IT industry’s environmental performance.

Virgin Trains and V1 won ‘Environmental project of the year’ in recognition of Virgin Trains’ document imaging project. Using V1’s document imaging solution, DbArchive, Virgin Trains has streamlined its financial processes, considerably reducing its environmental impact. Since the implementation of DbArchive, the production of 150,000 A4 sheets of paper per annum has been eliminated, equating to approximately 600 trees. Virgin Trains has also saved approximately 149 tonnes of CO2 by cutting the printing, photocopying and posting of financial documents.

Andy Cross, Business Support Director for Virgin Trains, says, “At Virgin Trains, we firmly believe that rail has a clear role to play in sustainable transport and we’re keen to lead the charge throughout our business operations to minimise our negative environmental impact. The use of V1’s software supports this sustainable drive and highlights the importance of a green approach off as well as on the tracks.”

Greg Ford, V1’s Managing Director, says, “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award in partnership with Virgin Trains. To be honoured for a third time in these highly sought-after awards demonstrates how our innovative solutions are helping organisations to significantly reduce their impact on the environment.”

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.
