11/2015 - Interfacing Donates over $100K in Services to Moisson Montréal to Improve Distribution Quality and EfficiencyCategory: Announcements
Montreal, QC, November 5th, 2015 – Interfacing Technologies, a leading provider of Business Process Management solutions and proponent of improving businesses’ quality and efficiency, gave back to the community with a donation of $115,290 worth of software and services this year to Moisson Montréal, Canada’s largest food bank.
“We are looking to expand and diversify our operations, and considering the size of our facilities and multitude of responsibilities, there is no doubt we will benefit from Interfacing’s Gartner-recognized business process management software,” said Charles Roy, Director of Finance and IT, Moisson Montréal. “By managing our entire end-to-end process as well as our governance and compliance requirements using Interfacing’s Enterprise Process Center®, we can better streamline distribution and standardize operating procedures to safeguard food security and supply”.
Moisson Montréal, has the task of distributing donated and recovered foods from supermarkets and suppliers to benefit close to 250 community organizations, serving over 140,760 people in need every month, of which 38,345 are children. Thanks to their multiplier effect, a donation of $5 enables them to distribute $90 worth of food and basic products that can last a child a two weeks. Last year, close to 13 000 tons of foodstuffs and products were collected, sorted and distributed in Moisson Montréal’s facility. In order to increase the quantity, quality, and diversity of their shipments, Moisson Montréal reached out to Interfacing Technologies for business process analysis solutions to reduce time and cost, with the end goal of maximizing the value brought to the community.
“Non-profits face the same challenges as other organizations but with the added obstacles of limited budgets and managing volunteers. Moisson Montréal’s operations are extremely complex because of the sheer amount of food they collect, sort, store and distribute on a daily basis. Moreover, this complexity is compounded by the fact that they are working with perishables whereby efficiency and control are critical to ensure proper health and hygiene standards are maintained”, says Scott Armstrong, Managing Partner at Interfacing Technologies. “We are delighted to partner with Moisson Montréal on their improvement program this year and for many years to come with the ongoing goal of widening the reach of people that can depend on Moisson Montréal for meals.”
