At SDIA we value the amazing things that technology can bring us. Wikipedia, Google, Youtube, an amazing array of information laid out at our fingertips. We can also input our own information with Facebook, Instagram and the like. At SDIA we’re introducing paperless and online enrollments for all our programs. Anyone can see that everything is gradually turning digital, just like at the San Diego Ice Arena, and there is a good reason for doing so.
It’s efficient. And in every way so: efficient in time, efficient in resources, efficient in funds, and efficient in space. By utilizing frontline and computers to store all our customer information, enrollments, reservations, and more, anything can be found by simply searching up a name or organization. With such ease and efficiency, why would anyone choose to store piles and piles of papers into unorganized, overflowing filing cabinets ever again? And by storing all our information digitally, nothing will ever be lost. Need a refund? It’s right there on the computer. Need to know what skating school class you signed up for in 2010? It will take a quick minute to search it up. On top of that, written mistakes will be gone, mathematical errors will disappear because the computer can calculate it with ease, and illegible handwriting will never be a problem again.
It’s environmentally friendly. One tree makes about 8,000 pieces of paper, and the average U.S. office worker uses 10,000 pieces of paper per year. Considering how many office workers there are in the United States, that’s a lot of paper being used per year, and a lot of trees being used to produce that paper. By converting to digital databases and systems, the San Diego Ice Arena itself can be saving many trees, just one of the many limited resources left on our natural planet. On top of that, we are preventing more pollution from entering the environment that is caused by the pulp and paper industry releasing harmful gases into the atmosphere. On top of that, we cease the use of ink which is also produced in factories and any resources used to make, print, and store all those 10,000 pieces of paper per year per worker.
Digital conversion is clearly the way to go for the San Diego Ice Arena, and provides many benefits for everyone. So please go online to our website and take a moment to learn how it works. By taking a couple minutes out of your day you can learn to enroll for programs from the comfort of your home. No need to come into the rink to pay for programs and our online signup is always open. Help us take the next step and bring SDIA into the 21st century.
