We believe employing AI will be key to gaining or even maintaining a competitive advantage in an increasing informed and sophisticated marketplace. – Mike Bidwell, Neighborly President and CEO

Qubo Technologies and Systems (Qubo) has announced an agreement to provide its Qbot artificial intelligence (AI) solution to Neighborly, the Waco, Texas-based holding company of 22 iconic franchise brands. The pilot agreement involves deploying the Qbot AI platform to assist its network of franchise owners, helping to analyze data and business KPIs, drive performance, increase profitability, streamline operations and improve the overall customer experience.

“Neighborly has been in business for almost 40 years because it’s ability to win the hearts and minds of our franchisees and customers,” said Mike Bidwell, President and CEO of Neighborly, formerly known as Dwyer Group. “Looking to the future, staying ahead of competitors will likely require more. We believe employing AI will be key to gaining or even maintaining a competitive advantage in an increasing informed and sophisticated marketplace,” he continued.

“We are enthusiastically pursuing predictive analytics as a tool to optimize our opportunities to enhance our franchisees’ growth and success. We are excited to leverage Qbot’s intellectual capabilities to realize this emerging opportunity,” Bidwell added.

“We are extremely pleased that Neighborly has chosen the Qbot to deploy within its franchise network,” said Gustavo “Gus” Guimarães, Global CEO of Qubo Technologies. “We look forward to supporting Neighborly franchise owners in their efforts to drive results. We’re going to give them the same type of decision-making platform used by organizations like Microsoft,” he continued.

“The rise of AI has given businesses large and small new tools to obtain actionable information from their data. AI is now available for franchise businesses,” Guimarães explained. “The Qbot will help the average person navigate the finance and decision-making process. You can spend more time looking at the road ahead instead of the rearview mirror,” he added.
