Durham, NC (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
x-span results, inc, a leading provider of real estate trade area analysis technology, is pleased to announce a client partnership with Pinkberry Yogurt. This partnership leverages the Site Decision System’s™ platform as a “hybrid” solution to meet the needs at the corporate and franchise levels of the organization. Together, Pinkberry and its franchisees can now “speak the same language” to maximize profit and avoid costly mistakes as they identify the best market areas to develop and the best store locations.
Pinkberry’s corporate development team will deploy the SDS Standard platform to establish analytical standards and set strategic direction for its development program. Each Pinkberry franchisee will have license to a tailored version of the SDS Basic platform and have instant access to the business intelligence required to identify locations and conform to corporate standards and parameters regarding store location. SDS’s unique, cloud-based, Software as a Service platform allows Pinkberry and its franchisee’s each to be effective in their role and actualize growth for the company.
“We are very excited to be working with a solution as flexible and scalable as SDS. Pinkberry is able to translate our understandings of winning store dynamics into a tangible analytical framework and provide this to the franchisee. It will allow us to continue our rapid development plans with a confidence that each franchisee has access to the right tools to make decisions. The solution is built-in to our franchising program and all will be trained to use SDS to help identify the best possible site options for Pinkberry. We can monitor studies and interact with analyses created by the franchisee seamlessly and virtually and we think this will yield a stronger store network overall,” said Mike Beck, Vice President, Store Development.
“We believe that Pinkberry is leading the trend in terms of how franchisors and franchisees can work more cohesively in terms of how sites are identified and markets are developed. The hybrid Standard/Basic solution allows the franchisor to control the parameters and the franchisee to instantly understand how a potential location measures against these. It saves time, instills confidence and continuity in the decision process and allows for quick, assured decisions. We see this is as a must have for any franchising organization” said Tracy Nagel, President x-span results.
