TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Saskatchewan residents now have access to phone, cable TV and Internet electronic bills from Access Communications through epost, Canada Post's digital mailbox. Access Communications is yet another local telecommunications bill to join the recently revamped epost.
"Now with more local mailers in Saskatchewan along with the range of national ones, epost is a convenient, one-stop destination to manage the bulk of major household bills," says Kerry Munro, Group President, Digital Delivery Network at Canada Post.
epost digital mailbox users in Saskatchewan have grown 26 per cent over the last two years. Among Canadians living in the Prairies, only three in 10 get all their bills by mail. For those who have switched to online billing, nearly half (48 per cent) complain that they have to keep track of too many online passwords on too many sites. Forty-three per cent want a one-stop electronic bill presentment solution.
"Offering our communities more convenience and choice is important, especially when many of our customers prefer managing bills online," says Carmela Haines, Vice-President of Finance and Administration at Access Communications. "epost is an easy and secure way to consolidate your household business online."
epost offers one place with one login and password to view and manage household bills or statements. It also links directly to the major banks enabling seamless online banking for payment. Unlike email that can have privacy concerns, epost offers a high level of security that keeps personal and sensitive information safe.
epost is the largest bill consolidation solution in Canada. With more than 7.7 million Canadians having registered with epost, and more than 100 participating businesses, epost has a robust, safe and secure foundation that allows Canada Post to continue enhancing the scope of services available.
epost is the free digital mailbox that helps busy Canadians simplify their lives by offering one place, one login, one password to manage their household bills and essential documents. Fully integrated with your bank, epost makes it easier than ever before to consolidate and pay your bills. Bank-grade security protects sensitive information while reminders help avoid late fees. It also stores all bills and statements for up to seven years. epost allows Canadians to stay better organized, and save time and money.
