January 30, 2017 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Painting with a Twist, headquartered out of Mandeville, Louisiana, has chosen Naranga, a franchise management software provider, headquartered out of Atlanta, Georgia, to assist them with optimizing their lead management, onboarding of new franchisees and central operations in the cloud.
Painting with a Twist was very thorough in their research of franchise management software options.
“Our operations team loved how simple and intuitive the interface of Naranga's central operations software flowed. They were also impressed at how configurable the software is, as opposed to the system we currently work with where we are locked down with a demand for extremely high fees for customization and support. We feel an alignment with Naranga where we are important and everyone's success is the first priority,” said Renee Maloney co-owner and CFO of Painting with a Twist. “We spoke to multiple Naranga clients who explained why they left other larger providers and how happy they are with Naranga’s flexible software and support.”
Naranga was created by a franchisor for franchisors, and of great importance to Painting with a Twist was feeling like they had a partner, who understood their industry and would support them across multiple departments.
“We are beyond excited to partner with such a prestigious brand and look forward to a long and successful relationship as Painting with a Twist continues to grow at an impressive pace,” said George Duffield, VP of Business Development at Naranga. “If you want to get to know more about their brand and character, just dial up their recent episode of Undercover Boss. They are a great concept and a class organization.”
Both companies look forward to attending the International Franchise Association’s annual conference in Las Vegas, Nevada the week of January 29th.
