Hot rods, Harleys and Hi-speed bikes were all revving their engines as TGO hosted their annual ride to raise funds for The SickKids Foundation this past Sunday, August 17th. With the sun shining and a slight breeze in the air, it was a great day for a motorcycle ride! The riders left the TGO main office in Markham and made their way all the way to Caledon before returning in just over 3 hours.

The ride concluded with a complimentary BBQ for all the participants, including hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled-chicken and a variety of salad choices. The participants gathered at the TGO main office to replenish calories, share experiences and enjoy a few laughs as TGO mascot and resident Cavashon Moxie raced around the office with his best hi-speed motorcycle impression.

In the end, the TGO team reached their goal of donations with all proceeds going to the SickKids Foundation.


Look out for the next charitable event in the near future.
We would like to thank all the riders who came out and for the donations!

Before hiring more people to manage busy distribution operations, consider whether your operations software needs an update. Multiple specialty software programs, spreadsheets, and other manual processes rob your employees of valuable time, create bottlenecks, and can lead to mistakes. Make common daily tasks easier for your employees by implementing better technology.

There never seems to be enough time in the day to accomplish everything on the ‘to do’ list. It may not be because you are understaffed, it could be because your technology is holding you back. The more manual processes you have, the more time it takes to get tasks done. In addition, using disparate, specialty software programs can lead to a big time-waster: redundant data entry. Employees lose valuable time entering data from one solution into another and increase the risk for typos and data errors. As a result, data can be delayed in addition to unreliable or prone to errors, which can lead to poor decision-making.

Instead of hiring more people, consider whether it’s time to upgrade your business technology. You can start add time-saving automation and simplify data-entry and data-sharing by using an integrated business management solution instead of disparate solutions.

Your employees can enter data once, find data faster, and you can be confident that you are working with real-time, accurate data.

Adding automation through a single, more powerful business management solution can make common daily tasks easier.
