November 13, 2012 // Franchising.com // Reston, Va. – In order to improve system efficiencies and ultimately boost the bottom line for its franchise owners, Tint World has partnered with FranConnect, the leading provider of franchise management systems. FranConnect’s integrated and comprehensive suite of applications provides the following solutions: franchise development, franchisee performance and royalty management, franchisee collaboration/training, franchise operations, franchise marketing, franchise e-commerce and more.
Tint World started in 1982 with one store as a new concept offering window tinting and soon grew to include a variety of automotive styling services. With 24 locations open and 38 more licenses under development, the franchise began to realize it needed a centralized, integrated system for franchise management and marketing support. FranConnect worked with Tint World to customize its basic module to fit Tint World’s specific needs. Tint World will take advantage of several services within FranConnect’s new marketing platform, Zcubator, as well as those assisting in franchise prospect lead generation.
“When we learned more about the depth of services FranConnect offers, we were excited to see how we could implement their tools to help grow our own franchise,” said Charles Bonfiglio, President/CEO of Tint World. “Through the customized system we have developed together, we can share vital marketing and sales data so that our franchisees have everything they need to be successful. FranConnect’s systems will allow us to operate more efficiently and help our franchisees boost profits.
With a background in technology, CEO Amit Pamecha created FranConnect after realizing that no one offered franchisors a centralized system to manage operations. Working with franchise veterans, Pamecha translated franchisors’ feedback into a user-friendly, comprehensive franchise management platform. FranConnect is the only technology service that gives franchisors the capability to house multiple facets of the organization.
FranConnect is the leading provider for franchise technology and solutions working with more than 450 brands. As a result of this experience, FranConnect has developed four revolutionary products that all integrate into one easy-to-use system while leveraging industry best practices and tactics. The base product, FranConnect®, helps franchisors manage all operations including development, CRM, financials, reporting and analytics, franchisee support/training and more. One of their most successful offerings, Captivate®, a centralized recruitment accelerator has helped franchisors to grow their organic lead generation anywhere from 20-400%. Additionally, for service-based organizations, FranConnect developed Service314 to help unit owners run their business locally while integrating point-of-sales software. To address the increasingly complex local marketing landscape, the company unveiled Zcubator™, a single platform that allows Franchisees to easily launch targeted campaigns and measure their effectiveness, all through a single login.
FranConnect’s recently appointed President of Global Operations, Keith Gerson, has worked for large brands in the franchising industry, bringing extensive experience and an insider’s perspective to the company. Tint World marks FranConnect’s 21st client this year and the beginning of what they hope will be a long relationship.
“Each one of our clients has unique challenges and needs associated with various parts of the business, and we have enjoyed working with Tint World in the early stages thus far to learn the intricacies of the franchise and build the custom solutions to help them grow,” said Gerson. “As we develop and implement management systems for companies like Tint World, we are simultaneously perfecting our services and evolving as a supplier in the franchise industry.”
