Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
The restaurants, coffee shops, clubs and hotels visiting this year’s National Restaurant Association show in Chicago are going to be challenged by a premier technology company. AppSuite (mobileappsuite.com), the leading provider of iPhone and Android application development for the Food and Beverage industry, is asking show attendees ‘What Would You Do for a $10,000 Customer?’
The technology company’s restaurant app and content management system (CMS) is sure to make a major mark on the 2013 NRA Show in May. The CMS is a convenient and powerful loyalty tool restaurants can rapidly deploy on iPhone or an Android without the high cost of developing their own app. AppSuite’s CMS platform allows the restaurateur to build, brand and expand their business to the growing population of mobile users . “Our current customers report, and we guarantee, that Appsuite users will see results in the first six months, over five years, a restaurant can expect to dramatically expand the number of $10,000 customers they have,” says Chairman Jim Daleen. The loyalty application has an easy-to-use campaign module that allows for the creation of programs that will provide offers and incentives to users based upon their individual behavior. The simplicity and efficiency of the new technology is a game changer for the restaurant industry.
Daleen, knows how to build and back successful technology concepts. Daleen was the Founder and CEO of Daleen Technologies, a global provider of high performance billing and customer care software solutions. In three years, revenue grew from zero to $43.5 million; he raised $130 million in public and private institutional capital and built a global workforce to 535 employees before selling the company. The entrepreneur was most recently the CEO of CPG Solutions which saw 500% sales growth and profits and was sold to an international buyer. Before that, he was the CEO of Affinity Express where he increased revenue by 400% and led a successful turnaround and sale of the company from 2003-2006.
Daleen says with Appsuite’s creative one-stop-digital-shop phone app, restaurateurs have full control of their loyalty program and have access to valuable performances reports to maximize any campaign. ‘Many restaurants spend much of their marketing budget on finding the new customer, we believe engaging the current customer is essential to maximizing your revenue opportunities in this hyper competitive marketplace’ says Daleen.
The Center for Retail Management at Northwestern University revealed that about 12-15% of a company’s most loyal customers contribute 55-70% of the company’s total sales. More than 33 million US consumers use their mobile phones for shopping and reward programs. “It is numbers like these which inspired us to develop the Appsuite Customer Loyalty System. Take care of your current customers and the new ones will follow” says Daleen. He adds,"the food and beverage industry has been behind the times , the days of the customer loyalty card are over and I’m proud to say AppSuite is leading the technology charge’
