TOA Technologies Helps Companies Help the Environment

Leading SaaS Company Reduces Enterprise Carbon Footprint While Saving Companies Money

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Apr 21, 2011) - On Earth Day, TOA Technologies, the only on-demand provider of enterprise class mobile workforce management software solutions, salutes our customers whose green initiatives have been good for the environment as well as their bottom line. In embracing TOA's ETAdirect cloud-based software solution, companies with employees who do work in the field have drastically reduced their carbon footprints, while saving operational expenses and enhancing the customer experience.

TOA's web-based routing and scheduling module, the fastest routing engine in the world, optimizes more than 50 million appointments around the globe annually. ETAdirect helps companies cut drive times, reduce expenditures on fuel, improve productivity and reduce paper usage. TOA's customers typically save an average of $18,000 per mobile employee annually using TOA's ETAdirect.

Some of the ways TOA's ETAdirect benefits the environment:

  • 40% reduction in miles driven per appointment
  • 20% reduction in dispatched trucks
  • 8.3 million sheets of paper not used to print out daily schedules -- the equivalent of about 1,000 trees globally (conservatree.org reports one tree makes 8,333 sheets of copy paper)
  • ETAdirect is a zero-footprint application

Arhaus Furniture, a TOA customer that is focused on reducing its environmental impact, uses TOA's industry-leading iPad mobile app to make operations paperless. This effort has resulted in an annual cost reduction of $100,000 while conserving thousands of sheets of paper.

"TOA's innovative solution promotes environmentally focused operational efficiencies that help companies run greener," said Yuval Brisker, President & CEO of TOA Technologies. "Earth Day is an excellent reminder that companies can make a big environmental impact by embracing cloud-based technologies, like ETAdirect. Going green is about making the right choices, with the comfort of knowing that these can ultimately also save companies money."
