"We aim to conserve energy and minimise and manage waste. With these efficiencies and productivity gains, we are well on the way to achieving these green agenda goals".

Guy Wakely, CEO, Morrison

Mobile technology from 1st Touch, based on Microsoft Windows Embedded technology, is helping Morrison plc meet their corporate environmental goals, whilst delivering wider business benefits. Morrison is one of the largest service suppliers to UK Social Housing organisations. It specializes in responsive repairs for over 500,000 properties, making 2 million visits annually.
