Version One and Virgin Trains on Track for Green IT Award

Document management and imaging software author, Version One, is a finalist in two categories of this year’s Green IT Awards - Environmental Project of the Year (private sector under 100 employees) in partnership with Virgin Trains - and Document Management Product of the Year. One won Green IT Awards in both 2010 and 2011 and the company is hoping to achieve a hat trick by winning in this year’s awards.

Now in their third year, the Green IT Awards showcase and reward the technology, as well as the companies and organisations that have made significant contributions to improving the IT industry's environmental performance. The 2012 winners will be announced at a ceremony on 19 April at London Zoo.

Version One, in partnership with Virgin Trains, has been shortlisted in the Environmental Project of the Year category (private sector under 100 employees). This shortlisted project has seen Virgin Trains eliminate 150,000 A4 sheets of paper per annum, saving approximately half a million A4 sheets of paper since the implementation of Version One’s document imaging system in 2008.

Andy Cross, Business Support Director for Virgin Trains says, “Version One’s document imaging solution has revolutionised our back office processes by eliminating the printing, photocopying, posting and filing of 150,000 sheets of paper each year. We are no longer overburdened with paper in the finance function, streamlining our financial processes whilst supporting our environmental agenda.”

Version One is also a finalist in the Document Management Product of the Year category in recognition of its document management and imaging suite, which delivers a range of business and environmental benefits.

Julian Buck, Version One's Managing Director, says, "Making the final of the Green IT Awards for the third year running is testimony to the impressive environmental benefits of Version One’s software. Companies, like Virgin Trains, are using our solutions integrated into their finance systems to cut paper waste, reduce carbon emissions and deliver a range of cost and efficiency benefits."

Version One's portfolio of document management and imaging solutions enable the electronic creation, storage, retrieval, management, delivery and authorisation of business documents. By implementing Version One's systems, businesses significantly reduce their paper consumption, cutting costs and improving process efficiencies whilst supporting their environmental agendas.
