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. We typically announce the winner at GPUG Summit but since this event went virtual we had to do things a little differently.
This year we are thrilled to give out not 1 but 2 awards.
Congrats to Autism Services of Saskatoon and Grace Lutheran Communities.
After all the submissions were reviewed, we felt these two service organizations go above and beyond for their community and they both deserved to get their requested product.
Autism Services of Saskatoon Submission
I would like to nominate Autism Services to receive the Dynamics GP Toolbox solution. We have been in operation for just over 40 years in the Saskatoon community and on an annual basis have approximately 130-145 new families every year coming to us for services. The existing families still need support so our demand for services has been increasing dramatically in the past 5 years. In all of this, I feel having the right tools in our hands to do our administrative processing as efficiently as possible is a good way for us to save a few dollars that can then be used to support our clients.
Grace Lutheran Communities
I’m writing this nomination for the free Rockton product that you are looking to reward to a non-profit organization. We are a non-profit organization that specializes in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Livings, Low-Income Apartments, Adult Day Services, and Child Care. Our organization uses Microsoft Dynamics GP for our Accounts Payable and Finance reporting.
Being a nonprofit organization, we use our budget to the best of our ability to service our residents and clients and most times go without the technology items that would help us with our day-to-day operations in the office. If I could have one product introduced to my Finance Team, I would like to get SmartFill. I feel as though the functionality of this product would greatly help us when we are dealing with information for 20-plus facilities and over 300 vendors that we do business with.
With a small team of seven people doing so much any little time saving tool would greatly help and impact the amount of time spent looking for something within the Dynamics system. I also find that this product would allow us to find mistakes before they happen and really impact our organization. I know that using this product previously it can help elevate double payment to vendors and such issues that arise. With an organization that does so much for so many facilities with a small number of employees this product would definitely be beneficial to us.
Congratulations to both and we are so excited to help be a part of your mission!
