Bantham Technologies scoops prize at the the SME Awards

Combination of digital data focus and positive sustainable impact saw the business take home the Environmental Impact Award 2020

London, December 2020: Bantham Technologies, a company that specialises in digital data capture and information sharing, was recently recognised as one of the most innovative businesses in the UK when it comes to sustainability.

The accolade was secured at this year’s SME Awards, where Bantham Technologies was announced the winner in the Environmental Impact category. The SME Awards celebrate the success stories of the sector often considered the backbone of the UK economy.

Bantham Technologies secured the award after showcasing its ability to help its clients capture remote data securely and simply and with a positive impact on sustainability challenges – such as mitigating excess resource use, reducing travel and waste.

“At a time when the world is becoming increasingly online, the necessity for digital data and working environments has become more apparent than ever before”, said Edward Belgeonne, founder, Bantham Technologies. “Our cloud-based platform is capable of getting information from anywhere to anywhere, both securely and in real time which not only improves working practices but delivers huge environmental benefits in the process – it’s a win-win scenario.”

Bantham Technologies works with businesses such as; AGA Rangemaster, BP, Interserve, Certsure and the NHS to provide remote working and virtual workspace solutions, building on the wave of current working practices that the world is moving towards and protecting the environment whilst it does so. Working remotely and in virtual workspaces enables organisations to work securely in real time, on any device.

Belgeonne continued, “Our ongoing mission has always been to maximise positive environmental impact by delivering digital technology that has a direct impact on the business community’s carbon footprint whilst saving time, increasing efficiency, and reducing costs. Environments all over the world are suffering because of human activity, and Bantham Technologies is leading the charge to help make businesses more sustainable from an environmental standpoint.”

One of the ways in which Bantham Technologies is helping businesses reduce their environmental impact is through its Environomics reporting tool. Its platform produces reports based on actual utilisation and gives out information that includes paper, CO2, water, time, and money savings that a client’s business is making, or could be making.

In 2019, Bantham customers reduced their travel by over 14 million miles – the equivalent to driving around the world over 600 hundred times, reduced carbon emissions by over 6,000 tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent weight of 60 blue whales, and saved over £2m in fuel bills. They also saved over five million pages of A4 and around 50 million litres of water.

Belgeonne concluded, “Our focus is on digital sustainability made simple – Save time, save money, save the planet. This award win is recognition that it’s a vision that is not only working, but one that businesses around the world are focussed on too.”

One of the examples highlighted in the winning submission was a case study with the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. It worked with Bantham to introduce an integrated Patient Information Database through the application of in-the-field operational forms. This innovative data capture solution seamlessly integrated with its existing patient record system and automatically pre-populated patient information into live e-Form documents. A move which enables district nurses to spend less time on administrative duties and creating more time to care for patients. In addition to creating operational efficiency for staff and better outcomes for patients, the use of the Bantham Technologies solution also saved RWT over a million pages of A4 paper, which conserved ten million litres of water, enough to meet the annual recommended drinking water requirement for some 8,500 people.
