Warp-It is a completely new way to reduce purchase costs, reduce waste, clear buildings, refit offices and collaborate between teams, departments and even organisations. Our customers keep picking up awards and recognition for their work embedding our service in a variety of ways.

Society Of Procurement Officers Award

Northumberland County Council were recognised by the Society Of Procurement Officers for excellence in procurement. This was for their initiative creating an internal sharing network. The network employed a Social Enterprise to move surplus furniture and equipment around the large rural County.

Dundee City Council

Dundee City Council and in particular Bryan Harris have received numerous accolades for the way they have redistributed assets internally and into the community using Warp It.

There is a great article here in LAWR in which Bryan explains how the project was and is being delivered.

The Council were awarded:

  1. Scottish and Green Apple Awards - Waste Management GOLD award

  2. UK Green Apple Awards - Waste Management GOLD award

  3. CIWM Scottish Resource Awards - Scottish Excellence in Resource Management (Large Organisation)

  4. Zero Waste Awards - Bronze award

Sustainable Labs Awards

University College London were recognised by Good Campus for the innovative way they used the system to share electrical lab equipment across a large city campus saving £100,000s in the process. This was a UK first as other lab sharing systems are more like asset databases - whereas Warp-It is transactional.

The Sunderland Partnership played a massive role in bringing together all the major players in the city to share surplus assets across organisational boundaries as well as getting schools and charities involved. For this work they were recognised by Compact Voice.

Excellence in Procurement

The Winners and Highly Commended entrants for the National Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2014/15 were announced at a prestigious black tie ceremony in Birmingham on 19 March 2014. This time Northumberland County Council were highly commended for the method in which they reduced procurement demand. Using Warp It they were able to block procurement of new items and steer staff to the portal to share items already available.

What our customers are saying

I hate waste and I can also save some money so what's not to like!

Anon, King's College London

I think its fab that this service is offered and that goods are being reused.

Myself and my manager have used this quick and easy service several times.

Anon, North Bristol NHS Trust

I am so pleased that this has been set up!

I have been with the Trust for some years now within a range of departments and have observed files being emptied and binned by some members of staff.

Having worked in a part of the Trust where funding issues meant stationery was hard to get I knew that I could put the files to good use and filled three sacks full

(carrying them on the bus! Imagine) to take to them there.

I did suggest this to managers but the answers were that it was time-consuming and it needed to be properly set up.

I am so glad that this has been done!
