– Following extensive research to identify the most advanced and cost-efficient point of sales and center management software, FASTSIGNS International, Inc
. has selected the CoreBridge Management System (CoreBridge) as its provider for increased fluidity in workflow and management systems. The worldwide franchisor for more than 590 FASTSIGNS® sign, graphics and visual communications centers has launched the system through more than 50 locations and expects that another 100-plus FASTSIGNS centers in North America will utilize CoreBridge by the end of the year.
CoreBridge is unique in its integration of all necessary management programs into one user-friendly service. With manpower, finances, processes and materials pooled into a single web-based system, CoreBridge significantly reduces data-entry time across multiple areas of business and allows franchisees and their employees to easily access information in the field.
“It’s clear that FASTSIGNS always has the best interest of its franchisees in mind and does everything they can to ensure they are successful,” said Shaun Corbridge, CEO of CoreBridge. “Bringing our service into their centers will allow their franchisees to combine estimating, invoicing, accounting, time and attendance, workflow and more into one platform. This will reduce the hours necessary to input data across multiple programs. We created CoreBridge to be the core system that bridges the flow of information across all systems and locations.”
The streamlined system provides franchisees a full understanding of cost analysis, allowing for consistent customer pricing across the franchise network, regardless of location and employee.
“Bringing CoreBridge into our centers is highly beneficial for all of our franchisees, particularly owners of our Co-Brand franchise opportunity,” said FASTSIGNS International, Inc. EVP of Franchise Support & Development Mark Jameson. “We have Co-Brand franchisees, simultaneously operating an independent business in conjunction with their FASTSIGNS center, who will be able to use one single system for all services across their entire print and signage operation. The integration of their management systems will save them a sizeable amount of time and money.”
The FASTSIGNS Co-Brand opportunity
has been a significant driver of growth for the company, which signed 13 Co-Brand franchisees just in the first half of this year. The FASTSIGNS Co-Brand Franchise allows independent business operators with print-related services to increase service offerings and revenue streams by adding the FASTSIGNS brand and full-suite of solutions, while retaining control of their existing business. Co-Brand franchisees consistently report that the addition of the FASTSIGNS franchise has added value for customers, promoting long-term growth opportunities for their businesses.
FASTSIGNS will be demonstrating the CoreBridge system in their booth at Graph Expo, taking place from September 13-16 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. For franchise information, contact Mark Jameson (firstname.lastname@example.org
