Fighting climate change
Fighting climate change
ReadyKey/Guidebook has always strived to be as green as possible. In addition to creating a mobile solution to improve communication, dissemination of information, and efficiency for organizations, we’ve also focused on:
Moving forward, for every guide purchased, a portion of the funds will go towards planting trees — with the goal of offsetting carbon emissions and investing in the planet. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted (https://onetreeplanted.org/), a non-profit organization that supports companies who want to help the environment by planting trees to restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world. An announcement of this initiative can be found here: https://guidebook.com/mobile-guides/guidebook-gives-back-with-newest-green-initiative/
In addition, we help companies to go paperless, reduce waste, and improve efficiencies.
ReadyKey/Guidebook supports contactless information delivery, QR code scanning to access critical information, and supports training and onboarding.
Many organisations use ReadyKey’s technology to engage employees, students and members with access to the information they need - when they need it most.
Our apps have been proven to increase engagement, retention and awareness. The majority of people turn to their mobile device when they need support, and we help organisations ensure that they’re ready when that happens.
