Benefits and features of free franchise CRM subscription

Managing a large franchise business is impossible without implementing franchise software. BrandWide’s cloud franchise systems enable the user to manage a large business network. The CRM is very similar to a retail software that contains a complete set of retail features but supports multiple franchise holders while allowing smooth evaluation of a large amount of data. Hence, it gives you an option to select the type of data you want to send and receive from the franchisees. The boons of such an integrated system are endless, but let’s point out some important features.

Optimized inventory and supply chain

A franchise management system provides the franchise owners with a corporate view on the inventory level. By doing so, you can easily place orders based on the minimum and maximum levels of inventory and connect directly to the supply chain. In addition to that, the
automatic stock renewal tool can be utilized across all the franchise chains, giving you details on the historical data and recent trends. In a whole, this means that franchise owners become fully aware of what’s happening where and the franchisees at the same time have the
complete whereabouts of their supply. It helps everyone to be aware of the amount of product they have so that they can utilize it when they encounter any shortages or blowouts during this crisis.

Multiplied sales for outlets

To make your customers choose you repeatedly, it is important to provide them with quality customer service and build a good customer relationship. That means, the more a franchise outlet sells, the more revenue you will earn. Our franchise software system provides customer loyalty and sales generation features to drive more customers to your outlets. Of course, the final in-store customer communication depends on the franchisee, but an efficient CRM software can help to boost your sales.

Enhanced marketing results

Sometimes, the problem with a franchise marketing plan can be due to simple adherence to traditional tools. Franchise owners spend numbers of working consultants and market researchers to build a multi-level strategy, but all goes to vain, but they can’t get the entire
the team on board.

So how do you make things work for improving your franchise marketing strategy? The answer is simple! An effective franchise management system can be utilized to carry out limited marketing activities. BrandWide’s franchise management software automatically
captures on necessary details about your target demographics through the auto-updated pipeline, based on the prior dealings. You’ll also be benefitted from the intuitive reports and marketing analytics, that come with the franchise software. Thus, you can easily find out the
avenues you are paying dividends for and keep a check on the cash drain from your pocket.

Conflict free benefits

easily pinpoint the areas of concern and finalize your management goals without any hassles. Apart from these, through the software, you can easily monitor important reports, such as revenue, profit, cash flow, and expenses. All of this is done without any need for daily
reporting.
