Are you a business that has multiple locations or you own a conglomerate of franchises? Having multiple locations can be overwhelming when it comes to your technology equipment, services, and support. The best way to manage all of your locations or the franchises you own is by consolidating and streamlining your equipment, services, and support.
For example, if you have over 100 retail locations spread throughout the United States it doesn’t make sense to have individual vendors in the state’s that the stores are located in. Could you imagine how many vendors you have to document and pay every single month for services they are providing? This can only be a headache for your accounting department and adds more to their plate as they try and keep track of it all.
When it comes to supporting your locations for any issues that arise, it makes it hard for your onsite managers to understand who they need to contact for services and then keep track of existing vendors. It then becomes a waste of time. Time of which could be utilized elsewhere for productivity.
If you own a franchise, providing a franchise package to your franchise owners helps them get their franchise operating with ease. The franchise package should include the vendor you have in place to provide equipment, services, and support. Taking the extra step of providing this to your new franchise owners allows your franchise to stand out and become more lucrative to other prospects.
There are many equipment and services that a location needs in order to operate. Internet, network equipment, computer equipment, copiers, printers, phones, digital surveillance, alarm, merchant services, and so on. When you consolidate those vendors and streamline your processes you can reduce costs and increase productivity. Each location you have should replicate each other. And all of the locations you have should utilize the same vendor(s) for the things you need.
