In an effort to reduce paper, Cooperative Elevator Company has launched electronic signature capture devices at some of our receiving plants. This was tested during wheat harvest at our Pigeon location and was very successful. We have since deployed the devices to our Color Bean Plant in Pigeon, Elkton Terminal, Ruth Plant, and at the Akron Plant. When driver’s weigh out they are required to sign their name using the new electronic signature device, once we have captured the driver’s signature we print the scale ticket to return to the grower and a copy is saved to our computer system. While we have a long way to go to be completely paper-free by implementing these devices we will reduce our carbon foot print by approximately 26,000 sheets of paper this year! Read More
