Rockton retreats are anything but dull and boring, especially when you are in Vegas.

This year we kicked off our first day meeting in small groups to discuss and understand what was working well and what could be improved. Stress levels are always important to evaluate and compare to previous retreats.

With all the changes and tremendous growth over the past year, strategizing was key. We brainstormed our plans and processes so we can best utilize our team to help us go even further in the future.

Thursday morning, we boarded the  Zappos shuttles for a tour of their amazing facility and to learn more about their culture. Wow, this place had great ambiance and it was fun to see so many cultural similarities.  They kicked off the tour with videos and talking about the core values of the company, which they proudly display so everyone understands what it means to be part of the Zappos Family.

Top Notch Customer Service

One thing that really stood out is their huge focus on customer service.  They go above and beyond and will do everything they can to make a customer happy.

They even display records set by employees, such as a call with a customer that lasted 10 hours! Believe it or not, they aren’t spending that 10 hours calming the customer. Instead, they focus on creating and building that relationship on a personal level.

And to give that great customer service, they make sure to take care of their employees. They focus on hiring the right people and want employees to love their job and want to be there. The atmosphere is fun, the energy is infectious and all the employees we met were engaging.  They talked about earning Zollars to spend in the company store and being encouraged to give back to the community and to each other.  They provide massage chairs, a workout room, drinks and snacks, game rooms and a one-of-a-kind state of the art aquarium nap room. For all you pet lovers…they can bring their dogs to work!

We ended the tour in true Rockton Style having a little fun ourselves by jumping into the ball pit!

Work Hard, Play Hard

While we did spend a lot of time brainstorming, staying caffeinated, and getting a lot of work done, you can’t go to Vegas without doing a little gambling and site seeing.

In the evening, we went down to historic Freemont Street and then Pink Taco at the Hard Rock casino. Some of us successfully walked away with big winnings and some of us donated $ to the casino.

We ended the amazing week with some Beatles LOVE. This Cirque du Soleil celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles through their timeless, original recordings. Using the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios, Sir George Martin and his son Giles Martin have created a unique soundscape of The Beatles music for the show.

This is definitely a show you should see the next time you plan a trip to Vegas.

In case you haven’t heard, we are expanding our solutions into the cloud space.

We can’t make work simpler and easier®  just for Dynamics GP anymore. With the launch of Rockton Pricing Management came the launch of expansion. This product is built outside with an API so it can work with any ERP solution.

Rockton Pricing Management

Pricing calculations in many ERP systems are limited and restrictive. Many customers need help in this area. This is where Rockton Pricing Management comes into play because it isn’t any ordinary pricing tool. It’s only the most flexible, powerful, multi-platform (yes, it works with any ERP!) pricing solution ever available. Why? Because you know here at Rockton, we don’t do ordinary.

Here’s how RPM makes pricing simpler, easier and faster.

  • Connect RPM with ANY ERP system
  • Automate even the most complex and obscure pricing scenarios and calculations
  • Enable date-driven pricing with all historical pricing tracked and archived
  • Always get the right pricing for the right customer at the right time
  • Easily set up and track all pricing changes, even daily

Why Acumatica?

It is a robust, affordable, and user-friendly ERP system for growing businesses. They are partner-friendly and Rockton Pricing Management is a great addition to their solution. It fits their customer profile and demographic.

We are taking pricing to the next level by automating pricing calculations for any scenario or adjustment. You create your base price list and exceptions and the tool automatically calculates and creates any price list you need. You will have automated workflows and triggers so you get a much-needed break from daily tasks.

You can integrate rebate management, pricing management, financial management, customer and supplier management and overall business management. And it is all done with RPM and Acumatica.

Diving into the community

We are diving right in by being a Gold Sponsor at Acumatica Summit and by being a founding member of acu-connect. It is important for us to get face to face time with partners and customers. It’s an exciting time to be a member of the Acumatica community. With vast amounts of new technology being added to every release, both by Acumatica and their development partners, there is no shortage of learning to be done.

Acumatica Summit Passport

Since 2006, Omni Price has been the most robust pricing solution for Microsoft Dynamics GP. Over the years, we have improved its functionality based on our customers’ needs.

We also noticed that pricing was not only an issue within Dynamics GP but many other ERPs as well. So with that knowledge, Rockton Pricing Management (RPM) was born.

Whatever your pricing needs are, we’ve got you covered. No matter how simple or complex, Rockton has the right pricing tool for you! Learn more about the key differences in our latest Infographic.

It’s that time of a year again, the Rockton annual summer/fall retreat.  This retreat found us packing our flip flops and sunscreen to head down to beautiful Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, with our families in tow!

If anyone ever tells you that early October is the end of the rainy season in Puerto Vallarta, they are probably trying to sell you a time share.  We arrived right in the midst of Tropical Storm Narda.  Don’t think for one second this stopped our team from having an amazing time enjoying all that Mexico has to offer!

But before we get to the fun, lets talk about the work.  Our dedicated team woke up with the sun each day and descended upon a windowless conference room where we consumed countless cups of coffee and protein bars while we strategized and planned for the year to come.

We found that we had a lot of things to celebrate during this retreat.  First and foremost, it is Rockton’s 20 year anniversary this year! We reminisced about our humble beginnings and dreamed about the many places we hope to go in the years to come.  We strategized excitedly about upcoming new products (have you checked out RPM yet?) and ventures (stay tuned!).  The selection of the recipient of our annual charitable software giveaway was an important agenda item (Congratulations Donor Network of Arizona!).  We welcomed several new employees into our midst.  And we talked about HR while sitting in a circle on the beach with our feet buried in the sand, the way all HR conversations should happen.

Tropical Storm Narda was a literal wet blanket on the beginning of our work-ation. That didn’t stop our lively crew from playing on the beach or in the pool during the balmy rainstorms, or willingly trudging through the flooded streets of downtown Puerta Vallarta in pursuit of an authentic cultural experience. During the daytime our families enjoyed fishing in the bay, zip-lining, massages, and visiting the local zoo.  Our evenings were filled with delicious shared meals, nightly shows, karaoke, and bottomless tequila.

By mid-week the storm had passed just in time for our special group excursion to Rhythms of the Night – SAVIA.  This evening started with a sunset cruise across Bandera Bay.  We docked in a tropical rainforest at Las Caletas, near a crumbling pyramid. Hundreds of flickering tiki torches lit our way to a breathtaking show about the Aztec creation story.  This stunningly beautiful show was followed by a delicious meal and a late night cruise back to our resort.

By the end of the week we left with a renewed spirit of community, feeling more relaxed and more excited for what is to come for all things Rockton!

One final note: As a part of our retreat we picked one local charity to give back to.  Rockton matched all donations made by staff to Familias de la Esperanza.  If you would like to read more about this charity or contribute to their cause, please read below:

Familias de la Esperanza (formerly called Children of the Dump)
In 2006, it was found that many families were living and working at the base of the city dump in Puerto Vallarta. This charity organization was created to help those families with the basic needs of food, water and clothing. It also named the road at the base Hope Road. Giving these people an actual address, they could now get birth certificates and register for school.  Over the years, housing has been built, childcare and schooling has been coordinated and provided. You can find more information about the organization here:  www.familiasdelaesperanza.org

A few years ago, Rockton enacted a 1-1-1 rule. This means we dedicate 1% of our team’s time, 1% of company profits, and 1% of our product is given to charities in our communities. Employees enthusiastically jumped at the chance to engage with their chosen charities. It is such a great part of our company culture. We support a wide and interesting range of nonprofits in the communities where Rockton Software employees reside.

Going along with this rule we have recently incorporated something new. Each year we ask for nominations from nonprofits that would like to receive one of our products at no charge.

This year we are thrilled to award the Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) with a free copy of SmartFill to help them fulfill their mission to save more lives!

We selected DNA as the recipients of this year’s award during our company retreat. Our entire team read through each submission and discussed which nonprofit we felt would most benefit from our products. After reading the letter we received from DNA(see below) it was pretty clear who we felt had the greatest need and widest reach in their mission. Anyone who has been touched by organ donation knows just how vital the work of the Donate Life America Network is.

Rockton Software Application

Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) is the federally designated, not-for-profit organ procurement organization for the state of Arizona. We facilitate the transplantation of organs and tissues for transplantation in pursuit of our mission to make the most of life through the gift of organ and tissue donation.

Like all organizations, Donor Network of Arizona has challenges with finding information in Dynamics GP when we don’t know the right word to search for. This is time and money spent that could be directed elsewhere. In addition to the challenges to find information, I can’t tell you how many duplicate vendors have been setup throughout the years when the accounts payable person searches for a vendor, but doesn’t use the “right” search. Rockton’s SmartFill would be just the tool we need to solve these challenges.

As the Director of Finance for Donor Network of Arizona, it is my job to ensure that we are utilizing our resources in the best way possible to advance our mission and to achieve our vision to realize Arizona’s potential to save and improve lives. By using Rockton’s SmartFill product to enhance our productivity, we can direct resources spent on time-consuming searches and duplicate entries to other areas and ultimately, SAVE MORE LIVES!

Our organization only exists because of the generosity of our organ and tissue donors and their gifts. As an organization that embraces a culture of generosity, we appreciate Rockton’s generosity in awarding one of their products to a not-for-profit organization. Regardless of whether DNA receives this award or if it is awarded to another deserving not-for-profit organization, we celebrate your spirit of generosity. Thank you for considering us for your software award.

Congratulations, Donor Network of Arizona! We are honored to contribute to your life saving mission! Check out their website to learn more: www.dnaz.org
