I remember my student days in the late 90's and during the start of the new millenium when innovation was one of those buzz words that just came up everywhere you looked: text books, lectures, you name it. Now it is all about environmental innovation: how to be more environmentally friendly; how can we cut costs and drive efficiences by being more green (yeah I know 'green' is a broad term.) Increasingly we are seeing companies turning to technology to help them be more environmentally friendly or green if you prefer that word. One such company is CMC Group, a provider of specialized printing and packaging solutions.
CMC Group were part of the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 Technology Adoption Program and were a major driving force in our successful launch (thanks again guys.) As part of the AX 2009 implementation they also deployed Bottomline’s document process automation solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX. Since then the CMC Group has been able to dramatically increase the number of invoices sent electronically to customers and eliminate the use of paper packing slips. The reduction of paper used in purchase orders alone has conserved more than one ton of paper and approximately 26,000 gallons of gasoline, and has prevented the discharge of 20,000 gallons of wastewater in just one year.
Congratulations to everybody at the CMC Group (especially my old friend Allan Stiles) and the guys at Bottomline.
Have a great weekend all…
