" Creating a stand-out direct mail piece is one thing. Satisfying our rigorous brand standards is something else entirely. Orange Door Direct (a subsidiary of West Canadian) delivered an innovative product that connected quite powerfully with our audiences. We were very impressed with their ability to adhere to our brand guidelines while delivering a superb direct mail piece."


" West Canadian maintains the same level of service that they come to the table with. Dependable and reliable – West Canadian is virtually an extension of our own business."


" We only print what we need, when we need it, making it easy to manage marketing materials and customizable collateral. Our investment in the WebConnect print-on-demand solution has proven to be worth every penny. It’s been of tremendous value to ATB."


" Our past vendor didn’t like the idea of quarterly meetings. When we made the transition to West Canadian it opened a door to new ideas and a different way of doing business. Now we meet quarterly to discuss reports and have open lines of communications with all West Canadian employees. Everyone is quick to respond to questions and able to deliver results."

How The Joyful Life Co. Creates Canadian-Made Keepsakes

CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY How The Joyful Life Co. Creates Canadian-Made Keepsakes for Life's Meaningful Moments In 2017, friends and coworkers Melanie Beaudin and Melissa McIntosh had an idea that blossomed into a passion project. Inspired by those special moments that are ever so fleeting when you have young children, they wanted to create a way for families to capture meaningful memories that could be handed down through generations. "As moms, we're so busy that it's hard to be intentional about slowing down to enjoy the little moments you want to remember," says co-founder Melanie. Today, The Joyful Life Co. creates personalized books that provide writing prompts to record meaningful moments – from baby’s first steps to grandma’s favourite recipe – creating a valued keepsake that lasts a lifetime. Finding the way as a Canadian small business With personalized goods on an upward trend, the business had no trouble hitting the ground running when it came to finding customers who were interested in their products. However, finding an efficient way to produce and ship their books was a steeper hill to climb. "There are lots of companies that will print 100 copies of the same book," says Melanie. But since each of their books is uniquely personalized, they needed to be printed individually. "Finding a partner that could print one book at a time, at a reasonable price point, with great quality and with a quick turnaround was a difficult challenge." Melanie and Melissa eventually found a U.S.-based supplier to fulfill their orders, but the trouble didn't stop there. Cross-border shipping created costly delays, and when the orders did arrive, they were often misprinted or damaged from their long journey and needed to be reproduced. "From a management perspective, it was just too much to have to deal with those quality issues," says Melanie. The co-founders began to question if it was worth continuing on with the business. Overcoming hurdles with a supportive fulfillment partner One day, Melanie stumbled across a Facebook post that would change the trajectory of their business. After discovering West Canadian could fulfill their book printing more locally, they decided to take a chance. "We always wanted to work with suppliers local to Canada, but just hadn't found anyone who could provide these services for us until we found West Canadian," says Melanie. Prior to making the switch, Melanie and Melissa would receive their U.S. shipment before individually packaging and shipping the books themselves — a daunting and time-consuming task for a growing business. Today, West Canadian produces, packages and ships The Joyful Life Co.'s books directly to the customer. "Our customers are getting their books way quicker, they're packaged well and we haven't had any quality issues." "Working with West Canadian has really helped streamline things and make the business so much more manageable for us," says Melanie. "We wouldn't have been able to scale if all of this was on us." Creating an exceptional customer experience For The Joyful Life Co., customer experience is a top priority. Since working with West Canadian, they've seen a measurable improvement in customer satisfaction. Because the books are all made to order, the team now has the flexibility to add in customized content based on requests from their customers (such as altering baby book content for single or adoptive parents). What used to be a 2-3 week shipping estimate has now been reduced to 1-2 weeks, ensuring customers who are ordering a last-minute gift receive their package on time. And finally, customer reviews have dramatically improved. Melanie and Melissa are happy to see customers raving about the quality of the books on their Etsy storefront. "West Canadian made this business manageable and enjoyable again. You've brought the fun back into it, and I'm grateful for that." — Melanie Beaudin, Co-Founder Shop with The Joyful Life Co. Find meaningful gifts for the special people in your life by shopping their collection of personalized keepsake books. Visit their Etsy storefront to shop now.

HR Teams: Spend More Time on People, Less on Paper

HR Teams: Spend More Time on People, Less on Paper Human Resources is changing. Today, many business leaders have an increasing expectation for HR to be strategic, forward-thinking and to run like a well-oiled machine – but in reality, HR professionals are consumed by administrative tasks. As gatekeepers to valuable business information like personnel files, payroll information and recruitment data, HR is one of the most information-intensive departments in the business. Challenges in managing corporate information Managing HR paperwork costs an average $300 per employee annually. It's the manual, paper-based processes that consume time, money and resources – not to mention they expose organizations to compliance risks related to security and privacy. Fortunately, there's a solution. HR departments who embrace digital transformation can simplify the way they work, save money, and eliminate distractions so they can focus on strategic priorities that help drive business performance. Information management solutions like M-Files enable HR departments to scan and convert paper records into searchable digital formats, apply workflows to those documents that automate manual tasks, and securely manage employee data no matter where it's stored – whether it's in network folders, email, ERP systems or elsewhere. Why you should make your HR files accessible online 1) Greater control Digitizing paper records and overlaying an intelligent information management solution will save your HR department time and money. With centralized digital access to employee and corporate information, it's easy to find the information you need regardless of where you're working from. No more searching through filing cabinets or network folders. 2) Stronger security and compliance Paper files are prone to risks like theft, fires and floods, leaving organizations exposed to privacy and security risks. In a secure digital environment, HR can manage who accesses sensitive information using advanced security controls and ensure valuable information is retained in compliance with corporate regulations. 3) Easier access for a remote workforce Is your organization's paper-based information stored away in filing cabinets? Is your staff struggling to access critical information easily and efficiently because they're not always at the office? With remote work on the rise, you can enable your HR team by making company records accessible from any device, anywhere. Not only will it make their jobs easier, but it will save the company time and money. Explore M-Files, a content management solution for your HR department > Spend time caring for people, not paper With the right information management solution, you'll gain easy access to information in a central location, improve security and compliance, and increase collaboration across the business. As a result, your HR team can stay focused on doing what they love: caring for people, not paper. Join us for a virtual event On Wednesday, May 19 at 11 am MST, we'll explore: Common challenges facing HR departments today10+ benefits of improving the way you manage HR informationHow to ditch cumbersome (and risky!) paper-based processesHow your team can leverage M-Files in a short, practical demo
