WA Breakfast: Technology Changing the Future of Franchising 22/02/2018



How Technology is Changing the Future of Franchising

Technology is a powerful business enabler and used to its full potential can streamline and improve all aspects of business activity from marketing and sales to rostering and payroll, accounting and fulfilment and more.

But as the rate of technological change continues to increase, it can be difficult to cut through the noise and work out the most critical priorities for how technology could assist your business to grow and prosper.

You only need to look at the impact of Uber's technology on the taxi industry, how Airbnb has disrupted the travel and accommodation sector or how music streaming services like Spotify have changed the way we all consume music to know that one thing is certain doing nothing is never the best option.

This session will feature an outstanding panel:

  • Mike Stringer, Franchisor, Car Care/Housework Heroes
  • Simon Dennis, Head of Partnerships, MYOB
  • Lawrence Pelletier, Sales & Marketing Director, Redcat
  • Mimma Battista, Chief Executive Officer, Chicken Treat


 

Why you should also attend this session

This seminar will look at a wide range of technological impacts on the franchise sector and how you can use technology to benefit your business.

Expert panellists will provide a wide range of perspectives and practical insights that will help you to discover more about:

  • The rate of technological change and how to apply technology and adapt your business in this ever-changing environment
  • The different types of technological change that are impacting franchising, including marketing, ordering, fulfilment, administration and accounting technologies 
  • How to work through the cost versus benefit question when implementing new technology

Audience feedback and Q&A will be invited to encourage a well-rounded discussion.
