Royal Visit

As we approach the end of another year, I wanted to look back and draw on our achievements from the last 12 months, in particular our involvement in the XX Commonwealth Games between July and August 2014. Toshiba TEC completed a major deployment in support of The Games, by providing essential office automation across three […]

I wanted to bring to your attention a recent development that allows you to experience our wide range of solutions for the retail, transport & logistics, healthcare, and education sectors. The Toshiba TEC Virtual Village provides a birds-eye view on how our products work in-situ within these sectors.

This blog marks something of a departure from my previous entries, due to the fact that this month sees the start of the biggest and most significant sporting event to happen in Scotland in the last decade – the XX Commonwealth Games, which take place from 23rd July to 3rd August.

This month I am handing over to Carl Day, sales director at Toshiba TEC UK Imaging Systems, who is leading an exciting initiative that clearly demonstrates why Toshiba really is ‘Leading Innovation’.

The end of the year always offers a welcome opportunity to take stock, reflect, and look forward to what’s ahead. On the whole we are finishing 2013 in a much more positive frame of mind than we entered it and, after what seems to be many years of doom and gloom, this newfound optimism is extremely refreshing.

The environment should be a concern for everybody. If further proof was required of the need for human beings to address their behaviour it came in a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which stated that scientists are 95 per cent certain that we are the ‘dominant cause’ of global warming since the 1950s. It also warned that continued emissions of greenhouse gases will lead to further changes to all aspects of the climate system.

Back in 2008 Envirowise – which has since become part of WRAP – said bad waste practices were costing UK industry at least £15bn each year. I can’t imagine much has changed. Business people are still printing vast amounts of material and it is estimated that 70 per cent of office waste is made up of paper. Moreover, the average office worker gets through up to 50 sheets of paper a day, a lot of which comprises unnecessary printing that could be avoided by the smarter use of electronic document workflows.

The Internet has revolutionised every facet of modern life and today’s working environment is no exception, with employees now taking their offices with them wherever they go.
