Version One and Virgin Trains are on track for second joint environmental award of 2012

Version One, in partnership with Virgin Trains, is a finalist in the highly acclaimed ‘Green IT Project of the Year’ category in this year’s prestigious BusinessGreen Leaders Awards. The award winners will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 4 July at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London. This news follows the recent announcement about Virgin Trains and Version One’s joint success in the Green IT Awards 2012.

Now in their second year, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards bring together businesses and individuals from across the UK's green economy, showcasing how new and innovative IT technologies are being used to create more sustainable ways of doing business.

Document management and imaging software author, Version One, in partnership with Virgin Trains, is one of seven finalists in the ‘Green IT Project of the Year’ category. Using Version One’s document imaging solution, DbArchive, Virgin Trains is eliminating 150,000 A4 sheets of paper per annum, saving approximately half a million A4 sheets of paper since the implementation of DbArchive in 2008.

Andy Cross, Business Support Director for Virgin Trains says, “As a leading service driven company, we recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment. Since the project began in 2008, Version One’s document imaging solution has transformed our back office processes. With less paper, our finance department is now operating as efficiently as possible, further supporting our environmental agenda.”

The ‘Green IT Project of the Year’ category will be judged by an expert panel of 17 leading green business executives, commentators and last year’s winners. The panel includes organisations such as the World Wildlife Fund, Renewable Energy Association and Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

Greg Ford, Version One's Managing Director, says, "Becoming a finalist in The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards is a coveted accolade for companies operating in the ever expanding green economy. To be shortlisted amongst such stiff competition is testament to our green initiative as well as the innovative ways in which Version One’s solutions are helping businesses, like Virgin Trains, to improve their effect on the environment."

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 while supporting their environmental policies.
