‘Going green’, ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘sustainability’ are all buzz words in businesses these days. We take advantage of daily conveniences, without always considering the impact it has on the Earth’s resources. Since inception, Green Office has prided itself in prioritising the environment.
With the implementation of carbon tax looming in South Africa, it has become more important than ever for businesses to monitor and ultimately reduce their carbon footprint. Apart from cost-saving benefits, adopting a greener, eco-friendlier attitude will ensure that businesses are environmentally and socially responsible – a major drawcard when attracting new clientele.
Virtulytix has recognised Green Office as a leader in Managed Print Services (MPS). Green Office was one of seven independent channel partners that Virtulytix selected to participate in the 2018 Leaders Index for MPS Channel Partners, based on demonstrated leadership in MPS.
The Leaders Index for MPS Channel Partners is a collection of hand-selected, independent MPS partners from around the world that are regarded as the Gold Standard in Managed Print and Document Services. Virtulytix classifies this index of elite providers from across North America, Africa and Europe as a lens to view the current landscape of MPS.
