Automation of Manual Processes Boosts Efficiencies and Lessens Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Wayne, PA – November 12, 2015 – Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, announces winning the 2015 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The 2015 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Elemica was chosen for helping customers automate manual business processes, resulting in reducing the use of paper and energy, which saves trees and other resources. Automating business processes for sourcing, procurement, order management, inventory, and logistics also streamlines operations and boosts efficiencies.
“Congratulations to the Elemica team for helping clients implement green best practices that drive aggressive sustainability goals,” said John Blyzinskyj, CEO of Elemica. “We’re honored to be recognized for this award for seven consecutive years.”
Manual business processes are costly, time-consuming, and fraught with errors. Electronic purchasing and sourcing, transportation booking, and shipment visibility are many of the green solutions that Elemica provides to help customers lower costs while driving sustainability. Elemica enables customers to collaborate with their trading partners to procure, sell, and distribute their products more efficiently and more reliably.
“By utilizing Elemica’s integrated cloud-based logistics solutions, customers have lowered their carbon footprint and energy usage by increasing collaboration with logistics service providers,” said Cindi Hane, VP of Product Management for Logistics at Elemica. “Better collaboration optimizes loading and unloading times and avoids disruptions and penalties, which saves on fuel and lowers emissions.”
The 2015 Green Supply Chain Awards honor companies taking green initiatives in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain. Hundreds of submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy (30 percent), the extent of the steps being taken (30 percent), the impact of the results to date and projected results (30 percent), and the form and presentation of the information submitted (10 percent).
