GREENSTONE LAUNCHES NEW CUSTOMER IT SERVICES PROGRAM FOR FARMERSCustomers of GreenStone Farm Credit Services can now take advantage of a new technology service program. The Customer IT Services program includes support for hardware and software as well as technology consulting for the specific needs of farming operations. “The idea for this new service came from feedback we received from our customers,” said Steve Junglas, GreenStone chief information officer. “GreenStone has already built trusted financial relationships with our members. We are excited to offer the same level of support to our customers for their technology needs as well.” GreenStone’s technology team services several other Farm Credit associations in addition to its 500 employees. Offering support to customers in rural areas —where secure and knowledgeable service is often hard to find — is just one more way GreenStone is providing value to its customers. “We understand that technology is critical to conducting business today in agriculture,” said Jim Maratta, GreenStone client support analyst and lead technician for this service. “Our proactive approach will help customers discover potential issues before they become an obstacle to business operations.” At this time, the IT service program is available to GreenStone customers in the Charlotte, Corunna, East Lansing, Ionia, Hastings, Howell, Mason and St. Johns branches.
