Bernard Matthews Farms has eliminated energy guzzling fax machines from their organisation. They have switched to electronic fax and now operate just one Multifunction Print Device (MFPs) for every 4 old fax machines.

Bernard Matthews is synonymous with turkeys! The business began in 1950 when the Company’s founder, Bernard Matthews, successfully hatched 12 turkey eggs in a second hand incubator. By 1959 the project had grown into a sustainable business and went on to become the well-known household brand we are all familiar with.

The Company strives to make a real and positive difference to the important issues we all face in preserving our environment for the next generation.

In 1996 Bernard Matthews identified that replacing high energy consuming fax machines with a computer based faxing capability would not only lower energy consumption but would also cut costs and improve efficiency. Avanquest Solutions installed RightFax.

They have recently extended the use of RightFax throughout the business, integrating the software with Konica Minolta MFPs so that all faxing, copying and printing is initiated from the desktop.

• Removing stand-alone fax machines, copiers and printers throughout the organisation has cut costs – electricity, paper etc and reduced carbon footprint.

• Postage costs reduced as Remittance Advices and POs are now electronically faxed.

• Security is enhanced – no peeping at the photocopier or at incoming faxes!

“Integrating RightFax has not only simplified our infrastructure and improved productivity but it has also allowed us to continue with our on-going commitment to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure that all our company processes have the minimum impact on the environment” said Edwin Pearson, Information Systems Director, Bernard Matthews.

* From the Oxford English dictionary: talk turkey “To speak frankly and get down to the basic facts of a matter”
