17th November 2004 - The Kingspan Group plc, leading manufacturer of integrated products for the construction industry, will make savings of at least £50,000 per annum by implementing Version One’s paperless office technology, integrated with their existing SAP R/3 software.

This £100K contract includes the full suite of document management and imaging software. Version One’s enterprise-wide electronic fax, e-mail, forms and WebQuery will scan, archive, index and retrieve all outgoing and incoming business documents. Kingspan say this software will boost corporate productivity, improve customer service and significantly reduce costs and will be used initially throughout Kingspan Insulated Panels’ UK and Irish offices and will be rolled out into Holland and Belgium during subsequent months.

Peter Keeling, Divisional Finance Director of Kingspan Insulated Panels, commented, “Having already invested extensively in our SAP software, we’re delighted that Version One’s software easily integrates with SAP whilst allowing users to develop their own forms, which previously had to be done by the IT department. One of our first paperless projects will be the creation of an electronic archive for all proof of delivery notes and customer service project files. We are excited that for the first time in our history we will be able to quickly provide our cladding customers with copies of the proof of delivery, which will give them confidence that our products have all been supplied to them. This process will significantly reduce both their and our administration.”

He continued, “Overall we expect to achieve significant annual savings of at least £50,000 as a direct result of implementing Version One’s latest paperless office technology. In addition to reducing costs, we expect this solution to give us a competitive edge by offering a far superior service than any other company in our sector. We are confident that this will enhance our customer loyalty and improve retention rates.”

€800m turnover Kingspan is a major manufacturer of an integrated range of products for the construction industry, with group companies established around the world and is recognised throughout the construction industry for its commitment to innovation, design, quality and technical expertise. The company has manufacturing and distribution operations throughout Europe, the Far East and the United States.

Tony Bray, Director at Version One, concluded, “An increasing number of multi-national organisations, including many SAP software users, are implementing our sophisticated paperless office technology as part of their global corporate IT structure.”
