Digital Transformation Pro-vided Real-Time Insight Into 1000 Stores Amid Pandemic

“Data is the Transformative Energy of the Modern Enterprise. When organizations tap the power of their data, they innovate, collaborate and grow.”

If you are looking for a way to weather the pandemic storm, survive and thrive during these uncertain times, check out how A&W morphed and pivoted successfully with their own data with the help of Cadeon, TIBCO’s 2020 High-Velocity Partner of the Year. During this webinar, we unpack how A&W realized how they had outgrown their systems and processes and how this was hindering their growth and sustainability. Without finding efficient ways of reporting or analysis and throwing more resources and increasing overhead to solve problems only proved to worsen the situation and resulted in diminishing returns.

"Business Transformation Should Always Be About the People" - Tariq Chaudhry, A&W

A&W found a much better way for their colleagues to do more fulfilling work, by removing the mundane, repetitive, administrative burden, and freeing up reporting time from 24 different sources to discover where the company stood at any given time. By freeing up time from the Operations department, their team could then focus more on providing value to their franchisees, and help them run better businesses. A&W also gained a serious competitive advantage by making the most of their data and technology and using this data to recession-proof the unanticipated COVID-19 pandemic. All this was made possible by fast-tracking their journey to digital transformation through Cadeon’s $10K RISK-FREE Challenge.

A&W Handed Over the Task to Cadeon And TIBCO

We started the process back in March 2020 with a needs analysis, and thoroughly reviewing A&W’s data. Through the use of Spotfire’s software, we demonstrated streamlined opportunities found with their internal data systems including menu analyzers, and discovered methods to create working tasks more enjoyable for A&W employees. While empowering data analysts to create dashboards that provided for self-serving data, to allow other businesses to access said data at any given time, to provide to businesses to manage their business performance. Then the magic happened. Although the COVID-19 pandemic was not the initial driving factor for this initiative, the setup and training were conducted virtually, and the data we facilitated successfully helped A&W recognize the new buying patterns and allow for quick strategies and business decisions that gave A&W the ability to fight the pandemic head-on.

Top Three Wins
