“We’ve always stored customer bills using FileNexus® and we’re able to easily offer that information to customers through our existing website. Adding epost optimization was a good fit and the FileNexus® team made sure everything went according to schedule.”-Shannon Brown, Metering IT Manager

In addition to its existing eBilling portal, Innisfil Hydro now gives customers the option of receiving their bills through ePost – a free digital mailbox and online presentment system operated by Canada Post.

With this additional functionality, FileNexus® automatically delivers bills to the epost digital mailbox, enabling registered customers to view their bill at any time, from anywhere, online. Innisfil Hydro is the second utility in Ontario to use their FileNexus® System to automatically serve customers who have signed up for ePost.

“Innisfil Hydro is very pleased to have become an epost mailer, where our customers can view and then pay their bill using Canada Post’s epost service. Our FileNexus® system helped us get there quickly.” – Marj Stewart, Vice President of Corporate Services
