Panel: Learning to Love Supply Chain Analytics

At last month’s inaugural Restaurant Franchising & Innovation Summit in Dallas, Texas, attendees learned that supply chains — traditionally seen as thorns in the side of franchisors as well as franchisees — need not be a source of pain and frustration. Why not? The answer lies in analytics.

As reported by Fast Casual magazine, GoodData Vice President of Product Bill Creekbaum (pictured, left) moderated the panel discussion “How to Create A Franchise-Friendly Supply Chain,” which also featured (left to right) Jeff Linville, president and CEO, Taco John's International; Chris McNutt, VP, Brand Programs, CSCS (Applebee's); and Jason Valentine, VP, Operations, Cousins Subs.

Panelists shared several insights on the importance of data and analytics in enabling transparency among franchisors, franchisees, and vendors, including:

  • The right technology can simplify distribution, reduce human error, and facilitate pricing decisions.
  • Analytics helps improve safety by enabling managers to quickly trace sources of food-borne illnesses and shut them down.
  • Supply-chain technology provides valuable data that can help restaurant operators launch new products.

To learn more, read the full recap at the Fast Casual website.
