Leveraging Your Creativity with Modern Franchise Solutions

Leveraging Your Creativity with Modern Franchise Solutions

Today’s post explains how modern franchise solutions like FranchiseSoft help franchisors harness their creativity for better sales, franchise performance, and franchise development.

And don’t worry–these benefits aren’t exclusive to “creative types.”

Create and Problem-Solve Anywhere Inspiration Strikes

Creative types know that inspiration can strike anywhere. And for whatever reason, the muse tends to visit us when we’re away from our desks.

For example, in his top-20 list of places inspiration strikes, Sid Savara includes:

  • Hiking
  • People watching at the mall
  • Running on the treadmill
  • Lying in bed
  • Sitting on an airplane
  • Long night-time freeway drives
  • Watching clouds
  • Overlooking the ocean
  • Looking in the mirror
  • At lunch with a friend
  • Watch the sun rise and set
  • The airport lounge
  • “The throne,” plus 7 other unexpected places you can check out on your own.

But if your creativity isn’t bound to your office desk, why should your work be?

Modern franchise solutions should allow you to manage your entire operation remotely, and that’s exactly how we designed FranchiseSoft.

With FranchiseSoft, you can access your entire business from a web-based dashboard that is entirely mobile-responsive and usable from any device. That means you can analyze and manage all aspects of your marketing, sales, lead generation, franchise development, and much more, all from your mobile device.

So next time inspiration strikes, be it around mile #5 on your weekend hike or hour 5 of your airport layover, you’ll be ready. Now with a few easy clicks, you implement that inspiration, anytime, anywhere.

Get Creative with Your Lead Generation for Faster Franchise Development

In the franchise world, the competition for quality leads is ruthless. Today, attracting the best candidates takes more than stock emails and passive job postings.

With FranchiseSoft, creative types get access to a whole arsenal of cutting-edge lead generation tools that can make their opportunities stand out.

One such tool is our customizable virtual brochure. From the FD Sales section, franchisors can create virtual packages that include introduction videos, testimonials, messages from the president, and anything other converting content you can think up. Franchisors can even create mini-courses and task lists within these brochures so move leads through the sales process, educate them on specific facts, and otherwise monitor their interest in the opportunity. The virtual brochure also has instant messaging built in so that leads can reach you with any questions or concerns without having to navigate back to their email.

Customize Training Courses to Increase Onboarding Efficiency and Accountability

Training isn’t easy, and employee turnover is expensive, so efficient onboarding is critical.

To that end, having the ability to create training courses that hold your employees accountable for their learning is vital.

The best franchise solutions should give you all the tools and resources you need to harness your creativity and expertise, without railroading you with a “paint by numbers” approach. And that was our goal at FranchiseSoft–creating powerful but flexible franchise solutions that work for any industry and empower every member of the franchise family.

Using the templates provided in our training module, the franchisor can easily create custom onboarding materials. Going back to our painting metaphor, we’ve essentially set up the perfect studio–high-quality canvas, easel, premium paints, good lighting, and the best brushes–so that all you have to do is show up and bring your vision to life.

Of course, if you need any help navigating our training module, we can walk you through the process, step-by-step.

We also give franchisors powerful back-end analytics that track employees’ course progression and completion time, so you can distinguish between the star students and slackers in your organization.

Virtualizing Franchise Management Systems for a Richer, Happier Business

Virtualizing Franchise Management Systems for a Richer, Happier Business

Today’s post explains why virtualizing your franchise management systems is superior to the old-school “offline” approach.

Read on to learn how our digital franchise management systems can improve your company morale and boost sales–or just skip the preamble and book a demo for yourself.

Franchise Management Systems Enhance Sales

Virtualizing your franchise management systems can improve customer satisfaction and streamline the sales process.

Using our field service management module, managers can remotely monitor and support on-site workers to guarantee a job well done. Field reps can upload pictures of a finished job for quality assurance, and instantly contact support services or access digital training documents if a problem arises.

Our field service management module also helps you respond faster to customer requests. Our software lets you instantly geo-locate field reps on a central dashboard when taking job orders and check availability at a glance. That way, you can assign the job to the nearest available worker and cut response times.

Better service and faster response times lead to greater client satisfaction, which means better reviews and more referrals for your business at the franchise level.

Virtualizing your franchise management systems also benefits your franchise development. Our software alerts you to new leads to expedite contact, and allows you to create a dynamic sales process that includes automated email campaigns, custom virtual brochures, real-time lead monitoring, and simplified communications. And before you commit to any big-picture sales decisions, review the auto-generated pipeline reports that are sent automatically to your email to ensure you never miss any key metrics, threats, or opportunities.

But boosting sales in this way is only one reason to virtualize your franchise management systems in 2018.

Franchise Management Systems Improve Employee Satisfaction

Two of the most important criteria for employee satisfaction are adequate training/support and open communication.

One of the most common causes of employee burnout is stress, which usually boils down to anxiety about the individual’s ability to complete a given task. If you feel like you lack the training or resources to do your job, yet are still expected to do it, the resulting stress and frustration can be overwhelming. In contrast, employees who feel prepared for work challenges enjoy high levels of job satisfaction. That’s why adequate training and support is so important.

With virtual training courses and the ability to upload entire libraries of reference materials, FranchiseSoft makes onboarding new employees easier than ever. And once the employee is on the job, our powerful franchise management systems let you track their performance (and their clients’ satisfaction) to pinpoint problems early for faster remediation.

But what if the employee encounters something that wasn’t covered in their training or mentioned in the textbook? Nothing to stress about! In addition to FAQs and self-service support options, the entire franchise family is always at their fingertips, so they can reach out via SMS or email with any questions. This ties into our second criterion for employee satisfaction: communication.

FranchiseSoft streamlines all communications by consolidating all messaging into a single app. Now users can send SMS, emails, or system-wide alerts easily to maximize transparency and promoting active internal communications.

Going Digital with your Franchise Management Systems

Though the benefits are undeniable, virtualizing your franchise management systems can be daunting, especially for franchise owners whose careers have taken place largely “offline.”

FranchiseSoft can help! Our team is made up of current and former franchise owners who specialize in helping franchise owners navigate this digital transition.
