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:
- Scottish and Green Apple Awards - Waste Management GOLD award
- UK Green Apple Awards - Waste Management GOLD award
- CIWM Scottish Resource Awards - Scottish Excellence in Resource Management (Large Organisation)
- 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.

Compact Voice Awards
