As of July 1st a paper fee will be charged for print/mail documents, the fee will be charged quarterly on your Holstein Canada invoice. The first billing of $5 will be in October for July, August and September.
As the world continues to move towards more and more online and digital ways of doing business, Holstein Canada, like many other associations, can benefit greatly from moving towards paper-free processes. By adopting digital processes, we can reduce our environmental impact, save costs, and improve efficiency and accuracy. There are many key benefits of going paper-free!
Why you should make The Switch
One of the most significant benefits of going paper-free is the positive impact on the environment. Holstein Canada can reduce our carbon footprint, and conserve natural resources by reducing paper usage. Going paper-free can help reduce negative impacts, promote sustainability and environmental responsibility, which as we know, is among the top priorities in the dairy industry right now.
Going paper-free can also benefit our members in several ways. By adopting digital processes, Holstein Canada can provide faster, accurate, and transparent service to our members. Digital data is just as accurate and reliable, providing members with information that is correct and up-to-date. Digital processes allow members to track their registrations, awards, genomic tests, invoices and more, through their Holstein Canada Web Account, and access other relevant data in real-time. A new feature that we have added is that all of your data is now available forever!
Going paper-free can also help Holstein Canada and our membership save money on printing, paper, and storage costs. This can free up resources that can be used to invest in other areas of our business.
As the world becomes increasingly more digital, the choice for Holstein Canada to move towards paper-free processes has many benefits. If you have more questions about the transition of Holstein Canada’s switch to paper free, or how to update your preferences, please reach out to our Customer Service Team at email@example.com.
