SAN JOSE, CA, Feb. 8, 2012 - Proven Match has teamed up with Franchise Update Media Group (FUMG) to give results-driven franchisors a cost-saving profiling service that delivers pre-qualified candidates. Proven Match has received interest from additional franchise portals to provide this initial candidate pre-matching service. Designed for franchise seekers to "self-profile," candidates and are given the ability to discover their business-building personality and find the franchise opportunities for which they are best suited. Franchisors receive matches based on the comprehensive 7-point Proven Match system that gives both parties a view of compatibility in the earliest stage of the discovery process.
"One of the biggest challenges franchisors face is spending time and money developing a franchisee that isn't a good fit for either party," says Gary Gardner, Chairman of FUMG. "We believe giving franchisors a proven and scientific tool to evaluate a candidate in the beginning of the process gives them the best chance of long-term compatibility and success while increasing their number of qualified leads."
Franchise seekers are given the opportunity to take the Proven Match assessment directly from Franchising.com. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Seven behavioral dimensions are integrated into the tool giving the franchisor the ability to accurately predict compatibility and behavior with 90%-95% accuracy. Candidates select from the top 3 of 21 business categories they are interested. A maximum of 63 franchisors may participate. Once completed the report is delivered instantly via email to the candidate. At the same time the qualified lead and report with demographics is delivered to the franchisor.
Shelly Sun, Co-Founder and CEO of BrightStar Care agrees, "Proven Match has provided us with a competitive advantage in the sales and selection of franchisees. Most profile tools merely assess personality or work style. Proven Match is actually seven assessments in one thorough test that takes the guesswork and emotion out of the selection process."
"Participating franchisors will receive the highest quality candidate that is scientifically possible," reports Mike Herrera, CFE and VP of Sales & Strategic Development for Proven Match. "The more franchisors know about the candidate's business-building style, skills and needs, the better they are in securing a long-term partnership."
Proven Match assessment tools were developed exclusively for franchise companies. They determine compatibility and predict franchisee and key employee performance. Assessments are internet-enabled, available in multiple languages and have 93.6% validated accuracy for franchisors to select, sell and support franchisees with this proven system.
