Managing our Operational Footprint

As we grow, we are looking to manage our offices and branches in an efficient and sustainable manner. We are focusing on reducing our energy use and paper wastage by using renewable energy to manage and limit our carbon footprint.
Through Oracle Cloud, a self-service requisitioning application that controls spending, we create, manage, and track orders digitally to replace manual paper-based requests. This has also slashed procurement costs by cutting transaction overhead, controlling spending, and realizing the full value of the preferred supplier agreement.
