Print/Mail Consultants Announces The PMC Green Assessment
Press release from the issuing company
(ARLINGTON, TX – Tue. Dec 2, 2008) Print/Mail Consultants, a consulting firm that serves organizations that produce high volume documents has announced the PMC Green Assessment – a comprehensive analysis of a document processing operation's procedures and products as they relate to the environment.
"We kept hearing from clients that one of their top challenges was bringing their document operation into compliance with corporate environmental sustainability directives", says company President Mike Porter, "The managers didn't feel that they had the time or the resources to do this kind of analysis on their own. They have too many other things on their plates right now."
In response to this gap between the need to make documents operations departments greener and the resources to identify the best opportunities for making improvements, Print/Mail Consultants developed the PMC Green Assessment.
The PMC Green Assessment starts with the gathering of information about the document operation, the jobs that are run, and the documents that are produced. Because much of this research is done remotely, Print/Mail Consultants is able to provide this valuable service at a very reasonable price.
"We wanted to keep the price at a point where it was affordable for any size shop to kick-start their environmental sustainability efforts right away. We didn't want price to be a barrier", says Porter, "Often, changes that are eco-friendly also result in lower costs, so the program can easily pay for itself."
The collected data is loaded into a proprietary database that scores the organization on areas that affect the environmental footprint of the documents and the processes that create them. Several dozen individual items are measured and compiled. An overall score is computed.
When the assessment is complete, the document operations manager receives a complete report that explains the strengths and weaknesses that were discovered. This report becomes a planning document for implementing the most desirable environmental improvements. Also provided as part of the PMC Green Assessment are PowerPoint slides that can be used to present the findings to internal and external stakeholders.
