Understanding what kind of software franchises are currently using to stay ahead of the game is critical if you plan to outdo them in 2020!

Today, there’s software designed to optimize almost every aspect of your business. But don’t be overwhelmed: this post is designed to help you make sense of it all.

Below, we’ve put together a list of some of the most common franchise software needs, and identified some of the software franchises are using to achieve their goals–and which you can use to surpass them!

  • “I want to sell more franchise units.” If franchise development is your goal, you’re in luck: there’s plenty of great software designed for that very purpose.Take our Franchise Development module for example. You can design custom franchise sales processes that automatically generate leads for you to invest in whenever there’s time. Once a lead expresses interest in learning about your opportunity, you can set event triggers to automatically send introductory information and franchise materials, and tell them that a representative will be with them soon. Meanwhile, you receive an alert for new leads to help expedite contact. And all of this is done without you ever having to take time away from other important tasks that day.Better still, our franchise development software consolidates all recruitment and production activities into a single platform, eliminating the need for any third-party software or add-ons
  • “I want to improve my franchise’s performance.” Monitoring national franchise networks and supporting owners in need isn’t easy, but there’s lots of software franchises can use to manage the workload.Indeed, our Franchise Performance module was designed precisely for that purpose. We help with management of royalty fees, simplify Franchise Counts for Time 20 in the FDD, make it easy to collect P&L, and give you intuitive dashboards that show you how every franchise is doing, in detail and in real-time, so you can spot every upcoming threat and opportunity. Our franchise software also auto-generates dynamic performance reports to help you analyze growth.On the franchisee level, we also offer powerful Employee Management and Field Service Management modules that give you remote customer service and staff management capabilities that will substantially improve your service quality and customer satisfaction levels.
  • “I want better training results.” When it comes to training for new franchise owners and employees is essential, the faster you get it done (with as few “redos” as possible), the better. Ideally, you want to minimize training time without compromising on quality, so you can start making a “return on investment” (in this case, your hiree) as soon as possible.We designed our franchise software to do just that. Improve communication between trainer and trainee; upload all materials to a private digital library so trainees can access manuals anytime, anywhere; automate training scheduling with our powerful calendar tools; analyze back-end metrics on training module dwell time and review consistency to pinpoint problems; and assist trainees with dozens of support features.
