ECi Announces New Green Partnership
Fort Worth, TX (May 21, 2009) – ECi Software Solutions, a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, is excited to announce a new corporate partnership. ECi is launching a green initiative with the help of Trees, Water & People, a nonprofit organization that plants trees around the world to help individuals and companies offset their carbon footprint.
This new partnership is part of a larger “Going Green” initiative that includes ECi’s delivery management solutions, RoutePerfect and RouteTrak. These products help companies with delivery operations reduce their carbon footprint through paperless invoicing, route optimization, reduced fuel usage, and reduced vehicle maintenance. And with this new green initiative, ECi will plant 10 trees through TWP for every $1,000 of new business on its RoutePerfect and RouteTrak products. Five of the trees will be in the new customer’s company name, which will help them offset their own carbon footprint.
“As an organization committed to developing sustainable community-based conservation solutions, Trees, Water & People is excited to partner with ECi to help businesses save the planet and their bottom line. By working together, we can make a world of difference,” says Heather Herrell, Director of Development for TWP.
ECi’s SVP of Global Sales and Marketing, Mike Gibson, says, “We at ECi are really excited about this initiative. It seems like everyone is always talking about how to ‘go green,’ but ECi understands that business owners still have to survive in today’s slowed economy. We hope to really make a positive difference for the environment, while helping our customers save time and money with our delivery solutions.”
Implementing environmentally-friendly practices can actually save money for dealers and distributors. ECi can provide interested companies with a personalized ROI evaluation to show them that they can go green without sacrificing profits.
