Diligent ESG was shortlisted as one of the software solutions DWF should consider
After a web search, Diligent ESG was shortlisted as one of the software solutions DWF should consider. During the evaluation process, DWF evaluated all vendors against predefined criteria of capabilities, functionality and reporting flexibility.
As a relatively small organisation, DWF wanted to avoid a long IT implementation, capital outlay, or any plug-ins or software installs which would require time from the internal IT team. A cloud-based solution was preferred and one which is configurable without any software development was the ideal target solution.
5% reduction of paper waste; an increase in teleconference utilisation by 150%
Since starting to use Diligent ESG, DWF have been able to focus on achieving their performance improvement targets instead of data chasing and number crunching on Excel. This led to a 15% reduction of paper waste; an increase in teleconference utilisation by 150%, thereby reducing business travel; and 80% of all waste now being recycled. Key benefits included:
- All data included on a single global platform with complete transparency to all calculations for all offices
- Up-to-date reports and interactive dashboards that are consistent across the board
- Readily available in all of the formats required for both internal and external stakeholders
