San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2007
AVOLENT, a leading provider of self-service eBilling and eSettlement software, today released recent survey results illustrating the environmental impact business organizations have by offering electronic billing and payment software in partnership with their customers who embrace a paperless business relationship. Current AVOLENT customers included in this study include DELL, HP, Xerox, OfficeDepot, Highmark, Do It Best, and more.
Implementing AVOLENT software proves to have a domino effect of benefits to the environment. The need for paper products is eliminated in the billing and payment processes for customers who have adopted online invoicing and payment. Using calculations supplied by the Environmental Defense Fund (http://www.papercalculator.org) over 1,000,000 trees every year are saved due to this adoption. The preservation of these trees ensures that over 300 million pounds of green house gases are not released into our atmosphere, over 1 billion gallons of wastewater is saved, and over 100 million pounds of solid waste generated by paper manufacturing and landfill additions is eliminated.
AVOLENT customers say:
"The advantages of paperless billing and payment are overwhelming. Not only does electronic invoice delivery and online payment help preserve many aspects of the environment, but our customers are demanding more and more of our business relationship be completed over the web."
"Over 80% of our customers have adopted paperless billing and payment with us which translates into real and sustaining customer loyalty and an enormous reduction in operational cost and environmental waste."
"In environmental terms, AVOLENT paperless billing and payment effectively saves enough trees each year to populate the entire state of Rhode Island, and saves enough of our precious natural resources to power a small city," said Mike Seashols, Chairman and CEO of AVOLENT. "AVOLENT is proud that this is a 'convenient truth' to be shared with everyone. Each individual and each organization can have a direct impact on our environment by electing to be part of paperless electronic billing and payment manifesto."
