Advanced Business Solutions scoops Green IT Award
Advanced’s cutting edge Carbon Accounting system wins top award
20 April 2012 - Advanced Business Solutions (Advanced), a market leading business applications and services provider has won the ‘Environmental Accounting & Management Software of the Year’ category of the Green IT Awards 2012. Document management subsidiary, Version One, also scooped the ‘Environmental Project of the Year’ award in partnership with Virgin Trains.
Advanced was presented with the Green IT Award at a ceremony on 19 April held at London Zoo.
Now in their third year, the Green IT Awards showcase and reward the technology, as well as the companies and organisations that have made significant contributions to improving the IT industry's environmental performance.
Advanced fought off tough competition from five shortlisted businesses to scoop the award for its Carbon Accounting system, which is a comprehensive and sophisticated carbon tracking solution.
The Carbon Accounting system, which is integrated with Advanced’s financial management system (OpenAccounts), enables businesses to measure carbon emissions quickly and easily and to more effectively budget for emissions thanks to the solution’s tight integration with OpenAccounts’ budgeting system.
Using Carbon Accounting, the captured carbon emissions data is automatically recorded in the general ledger and relevant project ledgers, providing instant transparency while cutting time-consuming manual processing.
Simon Fowler, Managing Director of Advanced Business Solutions (Commercial Division) says, “We are proud to have won a Green IT Award. This achievement puts the spotlight on the quality of our Carbon Accounting system, which is already proving popular with customers. It also highlights our dedication to helping businesses to measure and reduce their carbon emissions, while improving business performance."
