As Minnesotans, we love to enjoy the summer weather and give back to our community. And riteSOFT had the opportunity to do just that on June 14, 2022. riteSOFT helped sponsor the Central Minnesota Manufacturers Association’s 10th Annual Golf Social. This event helped to raise more than $15,000 to support youth programs and scholarships. 

More than 150 people from local manufacturers and businesses participated in the golf social at Wapicada Golf Club. riteSOFT CEO, Bruce Hagberg, and other golfers had fun while networking. At each hole, golfers also learned about sponsors’ productssuch as riteTIME Time Tracking software designed for manufacturers. 

Since robotics are so important to the future of manufacturing, part of the funds raised benefit youth robotics programs. Students involved in local robotics programs were on-site the day of the golf social to display their latest robotics projects. These programs help promote interest in robotics and the manufacturing industry. More than 60% of today’s manufacturers use robots. And according to Gartner Research, investment in robotics is expected to grow 37.6% annually between 2022 and 2030. To support this growth, it is important for the industry to drive interest in robotics with the next generation of workers. 

Thank you to all the event organizers, golfers, and sponsors for helping make this a successful CMMA event.

The riteSOFT team spent the afternoon cleaning up trash on a two-mile strip of Highway 23 in Waite Park, Minnesota last week. Since 2015, riteSOFT has participated in the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Adopt a Highway program. In total, the team collected 51 bags of garbage from the roadway ditches. Moreover, the riteSOFT team had a chance to bond with colleagues outside of the traditional office setting during this time.

riteSOFT is proud to be located in central Minnesota. Therefore, it is our goal to continue to reduce our ecological footprint in the community. We know that each individual action can make a difference because our actions not only impact us, but they also impact others. We received several honks, thumbs up, and even a sweet surprise from The Cookie Lady for our efforts! We hope our actions will inspire others to do the same.

ritesoft is proud to help make our community beautiful

riteSOFT encourages its employees to get involved in the community by providing team members with monthly paid volunteer time off at the organization of their choice. Our employees spend hundreds of hours each year at local food shelves, libraries, respite foster care, and churches.

At riteSOFT, we know that our time spent volunteering not only benefits the community, but it also benefits the company. It helps build stronger teams and enhances leadership and problem-solving skills—all of which transcend into the workplace. There is no time like the present to get involved. Whether it’s picking up trash or volunteering for a local organization, we encourage your organization to do the same.

riteSOFT sponsored a booth and showcased their time tracking and job scheduling software, riteTIME. Payroll providers had the opportunity to not only learn more about riteTIME’s capabilities but also try out the software themselves on a tablet. One lucky visitor even won an Amazon gift card as a token of appreciation for visiting the riteTIME table.

To top it all off, the IPPA hosted general sessions which included topics such as turning the “great resignation” into a great reengagement, leading progress in a world of change, and valuing time. riteSOFT was honored to network and have meaningful conversations with new faces in the payroll industry. Thank you to the IPPA and all the attendees for a successful event! If you are a payroll company and get asked about being able to track and schedule time on jobs, riteSOFT would love to be a resource for you!

Happy Holidays from our team to yours! 

It’s safe to say that 2021 left us with some memorable moments: some good, some bad, and some we’d prefer to just forget. Despite the challenging hurdles of the year, we are proud to say that we have maintained our collaborative culture at riteSOFT. We’re constantly brainstorming creative ways to maintain social interactions through online meetings and virtual social events. Our Monday morning team meetings not only spark insightful conversations but allow us to have a bit of fun with clever team-building games.  

In honor of these memorable moments of 2021we’re sharing our five favorites. We hope you enjoy and learn from them!

5. We Participated in our 6th Annual Ditch Cleanup 

The riteSOFT team participated in the annual ditch cleanup through the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Adopt a Highway program. Since 2015, we have adopted a two-mile strip of Highway 23 in Waite Park, Minnesota. To increase the fun, we competed on who could find the most unusual piece of trash. Several masks, bottles, and cigarette packs were collected; however, the most unusual item was a 1934 $5.00 Silver Certificate. Collectively, 14 riteSOFT employees picked up 62 bags of trash from the roadway ditches during a 3-hour period. Team building through ditch cleanup? You heard that right!

3. We Attended SYSPRO’s PartnerUP Sales Event

2. We Introduced New and Improved Enhancements to riteTIME

riteSOFT’s time tracking solution, riteTIME, added several new development enhancements including visual scheduling, geo tracking, and an Android mobile app. Visual Scheduling allows supervisors to easily schedule employees to jobs in a user-friendly drag-and-drop format. Additionally, supervisors can now see the location of employees when they are performing transactions off-site while using riteTIME’s geo tracking feature. This increased mobility is especially beneficial for companies with employees who work off-site. Stay tuned for the launch of the riteTIME iOS app in 2022! 

Supervisors will have visibility to know how team members' time is being used

Thank you to the CMMA, the sponsors, and the golfers who selflessly participated—despite the 93-degree heat. A bad day of golf is better than a good day in the office. This is especially true when it’s for such a good cause!  

Employee Bonding through Garbage?

Employee Bonding Through Garbage?

Yesterday, the riteSOFT team participated in its 6th annual ditch cleanup through the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Adopt a Highway program. Since 2015, we have adopted a two-mile strip of Highway 23 in Waite Park, Minnesota. To increase the fun, we competed on who could find the most unusual piece of trash. Several masks, bottles, and cigarette packs were collected; however, the most unusual item was a 1934 $5.00 Silver Certificate. Collectively, 14 riteSOFT employees picked up 62 bags of trash from the roadway ditches during a 3-hour period.

riteSOFT originally decided to participate in the Adopt a Highway program six years ago as a way to positively impact the environment. Reducing our ecological footprint in the community is important to us. Our actions not only impact us but also future generations. If we can make a difference and do our part, we hope it will inspire others to do the same. 

Minnesota Adopt a Highway ditch cleanup

In addition to the Adopt a Highway program, riteSOFT provides employees with one hour per month of paid volunteer time off at the non-profit organization of their choice. Some of our employees volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota, Friends of the Library, respite foster care, local churches, and food shelves. We are proud to say that our employees donate hundreds of volunteer hours each year.  

While riteSOFT knows that the time and resources spent volunteering in the community are essential, volunteerism also benefits the company. It helps build stronger teams and enhances leadership and problem-solving skills—all of which transcend into the workplace. Team building through ditch clean up? You bet. We picked up trash and became closer as a team. We encourage others to participate in the Adopt a Highway program or other community initiatives to help keep Minnesota beautiful!
