MINDSHARE TECHNOLOGIES RECEIVES ARBY’S RED HAT SUPPLIER ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 8, 2010 – Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. has named Mindshare Technologies as an Arby’s Red Hat Supplier Achievement Award winner. The award was presented during Arby’s Worldwide Franchise Convention held in Phoenix, Oct. 3-6, 2010.
The Arby’s Red Hat Supplier Achievement Awards recognize Arby’s suppliers who have provided superior levels of service and support to the Arby’s system.
Mindshare Technologies, a leading provider of enterprise feedback solutions, worked with the Arby’s team to develop, test and implement an innovative voice of the customer program, which was rolled out as Arby’s Promise Check (APC) in 2009. APC captures real-time data on customers’ opinions and dining experiences in Arby’s restaurants. Customers provide immediate feedback through surveys, which is then translated into actionable intelligence through powerful and incisive reporting.
“Mindshare arms us with vital information on how we’re performing operationally from the front line in each restaurant,” said Chuck Sliker, Sr. Vice President, Operations Services Group, Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “It also gives us key insights into new products, customer demographics and visit frequency.”
“It is exciting to work with a company that really understands the importance of customer feedback,” said Richard Hanks, President of Mindshare. “The Arby’s family cares about listening to, and providing the best experience for their customers.”
