...for creating greener business processes
For the second year in a row, eBuilder has garnered a Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Green Supply Chain Award” for creating greener business processes in the cloud. eBuilder Travel and Expense Management received the award for the environmental benefits we provide to our customers’ business travel management.
Every year, Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine honors companies and suppliers with Green Supply Chain Awards for their green innovations and strategies. Last year, eBuilder After Sales received a prize, and this year, eBuilder Travel and Expense Management is a winner.
eBuilder Travel and Expense Management is a cloud service for business travel process management. The cloud service streamlines an organization's entire travel process - from profile management and travel booking, to expense management and payment.
The automated service reduces administration costs, simplifies travel management for users, and gives users access to environmental statistics, which provide insight and control over the environmental impact their business travel generates. This facilitates compliance with company environmental policies and regulations.
"It is gratifying to be rewarded for the second year in a row for the green benefits our cloud services provide. The basis of our green thinking is that it is difficult for a business to influence its environmental impact if it does not know the extent of the impact. And if you want to understand and influence the impact, you must have the right tools and methods. Our cloud processes are a green alternative, as they help customers to visualize the environmental impact of their travel processes, which gives customers the information they need to choose greener options for their business trips," says Päivi Dahl Vidarsson, eBuilder vice president for Travel Management Solutions.
With eBuilder Travel and Expense Management, customers' business processes become greener because of the following:
• The solution guides business travelers to greener travel alternatives
• Reduced CO2 emissions
• Minimized paper usage
• Reduced costs and environmental impact of mail, logistics, and transport
• Simplified monitoring of environmental policies
• Simplified environmental reporting
eBuilder helps companies and organizations to streamline all or part of their business processes for travel, purchasing and logistics. eBuilder Cloud Processes* complement existing ERP systems, which control internal processes, by providing control over processes outside the organization - in our customers’ global network of business partners.
