Green Commute Initiative is a Social Enterprise with a vision to get commuters out of cars and onto any kind of bike, with the dual purpose of improving both the individual’s health and wellbeing, as well as reducing the environmental impact of pollution and congestion from cars.
As the UK’s industry-leading Cycle-to-Work (C2W) provider, Green Commute Initiative offers a scheme operated on the basis of salary sacrifice, saving employees the tax and NI payments on the payments made to the cycle scheme. Employees who get a new bike through the scheme save between 32-42% on the cost of owning a bike.
Since 2018, PMC has exclusively supported all of Green Commute Initiative’s web applications. As a result of PMC web application development and management services, GCI’s websites now offer their customers many new features, which have been instrumental in the organisation’s growth.
PMC was engaged to deliver a transition away from the existing WordPress Portal to a new ‘Instant GCI’ portal, to handle customer orders. For GCI, the change request delivered by PMC to ‘Instant GCI’ transformed a 25 minute, manual admin process into a simple button-click to complete an order, representing a significant time saving and process efficiency improvement
