Catch Mistakes and Cut Costs with Reporting Software for Franchises

Catch Mistakes and Cut Costs with Reporting Software for Franchises

Mistakes are part of life and part of business. They’re often catalysts for personal growth and lessons learned. But excessive mistakes can be costly–indeed, they can potentially destroy your business.

As current and former franchise owners ourselves, we know all about how devastating simple errors can be for you business. That’s why we designed our reporting software for franchises to catch mistakes and cut costs automatically.

Why not learn from our mistakes and leverage our solutions?

As Warren Buffet says, “It’s good to learn from your mistakes. It’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.”

Here’s a glimpse of how our reporting software for franchises can help you do just that:

Automatically generate crucial franchise reports

Our reporting software for franchises automatically generates full financial reports and franchise performance reviews. These reports are powerful and intuitive, highlighting key performance indicators (KPIs) that draw your attention to the most critical aspects of your business.

Monitor employee training for better onboarding outcomes

Some of the most costly mistakes occur when training new employees. If your onboarding program lacks proper structure and reporting capacities to catch training problems early, errors can manifest as expenses in a number of ways:

First, assuming the franchisor is lucky enough to spot the training mistake before releasing the employee into the workforce, they’ll need to cover the costs of retraining. This isn’t ideal, as you basically pay double the price of training, both for the trainee and the trainer, but it’s better than letting mistakes slide.

In many cases, improper training can force business owners to pay double the cost of labor, as more experienced workers must be brought in to correct the mistakes of new employees. Suddenly, a job that should have cost 4 hours of labor requires 8 or more–sometimes, correcting mistakes can take even longer than starting the job from scratch.

Sometimes training errors can even cost you sales and client referrals entirely. And once the mistake is made, it’s too late to do anything about it.

But you can cut the costs of these errors and improve onboarding outcomes with better training reporting software for franchises. FranchiseSoft automatically monitors employee training, giving franchisors hard data on how long it takes trainees to complete assigned tasks, as well as when and if they were finished. In this way, you can identify sticking points early and keep both trainees and trainers accountable at all times. Additionally, our reporting software for franchises can pinpoint performance issues at the single unit or executive level that may be linked to training errors. You can also monitor performance in real-time using various tools, such as the field service management module, which can be set up so that workers must upload pictures of their job-well-done for franchisor approval.

Eliminate human error with FranchiseSoft task automation

The cost of typos, oversights, and calculation errors quickly adds up.

But our reporting software for franchises automates and optimizes important tasks to eliminate human error and save you time and money.

For example, our enterprise resource planning (ERP) software simplifies franchise management and reduces errors by automatically controlling inventory levels and optimizing the supply chain. Our reporting software for franchises gives you corporate-level inventory visibility and allows you to place orders automatically based on min/max inventory levels. The automatic stock replenishment tool can be used all across the franchise chain, giving individual franchisees historical data and seasonal trends to inform their orders.

Our solution also integrates seamlessly with third party financial software, including PayPal, Authorize.Net, DocuSign and QuickBooks, which cuts down the risks of typos and miscalculations as you port data from one platform to another.

Close More Sales with Franchise Lead Management Software

Close More Sales with Franchise Lead Management Software

Is your franchise lead management software helping you close more sales?

Your answer should be a resounding yes–and you ought to have the stats to prove it. If that’s not the case, you’re 100% leaving money on the table.

Our franchise lead management software can help. Today’s post highlights 3 ways our solution ups your closing rate.

Pinpoint prospects that are ripe for conversion

FranchiseSoft’s robust lead profiles make it easy to pinpoint which prospects are ripe for conversion, placing crucial sales and franchise development information at your fingertips.

From the Directory, you can take in all your leads’ net worth, goals, cash available for investment, inquiry date/time, and projected closing month at a glance. In this way, you can focus on leads whose investment capital and vision fits your opportunity. You can also create a “queue” for your conversion that prioritizes leads whose inquiry date/time came first so that you never leave a prospect feeling neglected.

Best of all, our franchise lead management software monitors your workflow for all leads, so you always know exactly how far they’ve progressed in your conversion process and can pick up precisely where you left off. You can also set up auto-assigned sales tasks for franchisors every time a new lead enters into the system.

Clear your schedule for high-level sales calls

Do you ever stop and think about how your closing rate would look if you could focus on sales all day? Unfortunately, there are often countless other back-office administration and franchisor duties competing for your attention. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

By automatically archiving correspondence, porting relevant data from module to module, and streamlining lead profile creation, our franchise lead management software eliminates administrative busywork and dull data entry tasks, which effectively adds more hours to the day. Our Support module also automates low-level support tasks by directing franchisees to FAQs and support materials, so you can free up your faculties for more important work, whether that’s closing more sales or troubleshooting serious franchisee problems.

Implement a seamless “tag team” sales strategy

Are there any pro wrestling fans reading right now?

If so, you’re probably familiar with the “tag team” match, in which a team of two or more wrestlers takes turns competing against one of the wrestlers on another team, with the idle teammates waiting outside the ring until one of them is tagged by their competing teammate.

The tag team approach is great in competition because you can “tag in” your partner anytime you get tired. Similarly, the tag team sales approach is great for business because it ensures that the client is always talking to somebody who is energetic and engaged.

But the tag team strategy can fall flat when poorly implemented. For example, if you “tag in” another sales representative, who then proceeds to ask the client all the same questions you just did, the customer gets irritated. They may even feel a little neglected.

Didn’t I just explain all this? Are they even listening to me?

Franchise lead management software ensures a seamless tag team experience. By automatically archiving all correspondence, the sales rep you “tag in” can quickly get up to speed on the situation, and pick up precisely where you left off. And since our solution is usable from any internet-enabled mobile device, you can call in backup from anyone, anywhere, anytime–whoever you need to close the sale is only a few clicks away.
