Digitalization for the environmental sustainability, the turning point of Nova Systems: The IT company introduces some important green innovations
Digitalization and environmental sustainability are topics that have definitely entered the vocabulary of companies in the world of logistics and transport. Business competitiveness and respect for the environment are at the heart of a new way of thinking about transportation and infrastructure. Nova Systems is interpreting this point of view and thanks to the BeOne management software has innovation and the new green economy as its distinctive feature.
SERVER FARM POWERED BY SUSTAINABLE SOURCES
Nova Systems’ beating heart will soon be powered by renewable sources. “Our server farm runs 24/7, 365 days a year to ensure connections to the entire world. The data center is the hub of our company, this is where most of the energy is concentrated,” says Nova Systems Research & Development Manager Filippo Menditto. “Nova Systems’ commitment is to make its server farm energy independent through the use of renewable sources. In particular, we will soon install a photovoltaic system able to produce 20 kW of energy, so to support the entire requirements of the data center under the banner of environmental sustainability”.
ROAD ROUTES, THANKS TO BEONE THE CALCULATION OF CO2 EMISSIONS AND POLLUTING EMISSIONS
Nova Systems’ Research & Development Centre has enhanced the FTL Full Truck Load Software with some new features that will be released soon and help in optimizing the activities of professionals working in this sector. Transportation is being made more efficient by being able to control and reduce costs, providing greater efficiency in vehicle fleet utilization.
” An increasing number of companies are requesting documents certifying the CO2 emissions of the transport service. A circumstance that makes us understand how much the sensibility on environmental sustainability is growing in the logistics world – continues Menditto -. Thanks to BeOne it will be possible to calculate the emissions produced by the vehicle engaged in a given route, based on its weight and the slope of the various road sections. The data are provided through detailed reports, which put the customer in a position to meet future emissions regulations”.
Thanks to the FTL module, Menditto continues, “the user has a quick view of the localization of every single vehicle in order to reduce empty kilometers travelled as much as possible. Moreover, the cartography helps to identify the best route both in terms of time and kilometers to be covered”.
THANKS TO THE DMS YOU CAN SAY GOODBYE TO PAPER
The Document Management System (DMS) is an integrated functionality of BeOne strategic for companies, because it is a key support for business growth. No more bundles of paper on the desks (printing customer request e-mails, invoices, transport documents, etc.). All this is now a distant memory as documents are managed and stored electronically.
“Thanks to electronic storage, Nova Systems’ Sustainable Cloud helps the environment by reducing the use of paper, at the same time improving production processes and helping to reduce costs. It is the so-called paperless approach, which helps to eliminate geographical restrictions: a paperless office can in fact allow immediate access to documentation, wherever employees are, with a significant increase in productivity,” explains Nova Systems’ Research & Development Manager.
“GREEN CITY”, THE SUSTAINABLE PROJECT OF NOVA SYSTEMS
“The future of the planet is in our hands. We live in a time of great changes and we have a duty about the next generations – says Menditto-. For this reason, as Nova Systems we felt a strong responsibility to contribute to environmental sustainability not only through the benefits of the BeOne Cloud, which helps to drastically reduce energy consumption and the use of hardware components, but also through a new project, called “Green City“, which involves the place where Nova Systems has its headquarter”.
For each new contract signed, the IT company will donate a tree to the City Hall, which will plant it in green areas, inside schools or in other spaces that need to be populated. “A concrete commitment between Nova Systems and the customer in giving a real contribution to an important cause”, concludes Menditto.
