Delaget selected as a “Top 100 Most Promising Big Data Solution Provider of 2017”

SAINT LOUIS PARK, Minn.Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Delaget, a QSR leader in helping franchises run more effective operations with data management, loss prevention, analytics, reporting, and payroll and accounting solutions, is proud to announce its selection as one of the “Top 100 Most Promising Big Data Solution Providers of 2017” by CIOReview.

According to the publication, “data generation and utilization continues to grow by leaps and bounds and with it the investments in big data analytics solutions and services.”

The guide serves as a resource for companies striving to excel in operational productivity and benefit from enhanced decision making. The selection was made by the publication’s panel comprised of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts along with its editorial board. The solutions honored “are at the vanguard fulfilling the urgent demands of the industry.”

Delaget is the only vendor selected that’s focused solely on the QSR industry. Delaget solutions gather data from isolated systems and clean, normalize, and transform that data into digestible knowledge. The data can also be shared with an operator’s other systems. CIOReview points out that Delaget is unique in that, unlike other technology providers that restrict the output of data into specific products, it enables restaurant operators to choose whichever technology works best for their business.

“As we see it, restaurants today are data rich, but intelligence poor. We’re on a mission to make it nearly-effortless for restaurant franchisees and their teams to find, understand, and act on key business intelligence, without ever worrying about technology and data issues again,” said Jason Tober, Delaget CEO. “We’re honored to be selected as one of the most promising big data solution providers – and to be among such great solutions,” he added.

Diversified Restaurant Group picks Delaget for payroll and accounting services

SAINT LOUIS PARK, Minn., June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Diversified Restaurant Group, LLC, a restaurant group that manages 150 Taco Bell restaurants in Northern California and Nevada, today announced a new payroll and accounting partnership with Delaget, LLC, a QSR leader in helping franchises run more effective operations with loss prevention, analytics, reporting, and payroll solutions.

“We reached the 150 store mark through acquisitions of larger franchise groups, and we want to continue to grow our restaurant portfolio. You can’t run – or grow – a company effectively with multiple different systems and processes. After an analysis, we determined that we needed to outsource our payroll and accounting to eliminate redundancies, make us more effective in running our current portfolio of stores, and help make us nimbler and more competitive for future acquisitions,” said Erich Moxley, SVP and Franchisee at Diversified Restaurant Group, LLC.

Diversified Restaurant Group is leveraging Delaget Books, a time-saving payroll and accounting service focused on multi-unit operators. Delaget’s streamlined processes improve profitability in the multi-unit space. With Delaget Books, franchise owners save time by having Delaget experts process accounts payable and receivable, daily cash reports, P&Ls, payroll, and expense reports, and handle other accounting tasks.

“We looked at several other competitors, and we found that Delaget was the right partner for us. We already trust Delaget for our restaurant reporting, their team has a deep understanding of the industry, and other outsourcing services didn’t have all the bells and whistles we were looking for. These reasons made it a much easier decision to outsource,” said Erich.

Outsourcing will also allow Erich and the team at Diversified to focus what really matters to their business.

“Instead of spending time managing numerous vendors, invoices, and other payroll and accounting functions, outsourcing will allow us to focus on developing our business, acquiring and building stores, and working with our middle and store level management teams to run a more efficient operation,” said Erich. “I didn’t become a franchisee to run a payroll company or CPA firm. I became a franchisee because I want to run restaurants,” he added.

“At Delaget, our mission is to help restauranteurs run smarter, more profitable restaurants. By outsourcing payroll and accounting, the team at Diversified will have more time to focus on strategic initiatives and growing their business. We’re excited to partner with them and help them make their growth easier,” said Jason Tober, Delaget CEO.

19 KFC franchisees choose Delaget Guard to reduce loss to employee theft and error

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Delaget, LLC, the only data analytics and business process outsourcing experts focused on the QSR industry, today announced the signing of 19 new KFC franchise customers who have licensed Delaget Guard, its loss prevention software focused on reducing employee theft and error. The new signings come on the heels of the KFC Technology Committee’s successful completion of a 120-day pilot of Delaget Guard (read the press release).

The Hodges Management Group, a 30-unit KFC, Taco Bell, and Dairy Queen franchise, is one of these new customers.

“Delaget Guard gives me an easy way to see what’s happening at our restaurants. Using the software, I found managers who were doing refunds that weren’t legitimate – they were just pocketing money. In fact, one of the employees we caught stole to the tune of around $4,000,” said Bobby Bange, an Above Store Leader at The Hodges Management Company.

Jason Zakaras, owner of Zak Foods, a 27-unit KFC franchise, decided to partner with Delaget because of how easy the software is to use.

“We wanted to go with Delaget because I know how robust their tools have become. It was a no brainer for me because I know Delaget is a world-class resource for our teams and they provide a very intuitive solution,” Jason said.

“Because Delaget Guard has been tested and proven by KFC corporate, franchisees can be confident that it’s going to work in their business and help them improve margins. We’ve seen a tremendous response so far, which is exciting to see because it means that the software is really making a difference,” said Dave Sandhoefner, Delaget’s Chief Revenue Officer.

KFC Corporation Selects Delaget and Envysion as its Preferred Loss Prevention Suite

LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Kentucky Fried Chicken® announced today the selection of Delaget Guard and Envysion as KFC’s preferred and fully-supported loss prevention suite for the company’s more than 4,100 outlets nationwide.

The announcement comes after a 120-day pilot spearheaded by KFC’s Technology Committee to determine best-in-class loss prevention solutions and to enhance support for franchisees. During the pilot, users experienced Delaget’s new integration with Envysion, KFC’s DVR system vendor, as part of a loss prevention suite.

The Delaget and Envysion partnership is the new best practice for loss prevention, as it helps franchisees leverage advanced analytics to quickly find substantive theft, use video surveillance to validate and fully understand the context of those suspicious activities, and help guide restaurant managers on the immediate actions to take with prescriptive intelligence.
“Choosing our preferred loss prevention suite was not something we took lightly,” said Chris Caldwell, chief information officer for KFC U.S. “We selected Delaget for their extensive experience in the quick service restaurant industry, ability to handle the security demands of a large operation, and because their solution, Delaget Guard, is exceptional at identifying loss and prescribing action. With the combined capabilities of Delaget and Envysion, KFC franchisees will have access to powerful loss prevention tools, saving them time and helping them run more efficient operations. We saw excellent results with the pilot and are excited to roll it out to our franchisees.”

Franchisees around the country have already started using Delaget Guard, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that reduces loss from theft and error by using proprietary algorithms to find exceptions in restaurant data, prioritizing those exceptions by monetary impact, and recommending specific actions restaurant managers can take to reduce loss. When operators use Delaget and Envysion together, they can easily compare side-by-side views of the transactional data with the corresponding video.

“Having ticket-level details side-by-side with video footage is a game-changer for my team. Instead of
spending hours reviewing footage or analyzing reports, they’re now able to easily isolate and identify issues and make quick responses. With a combined solution, it’s easier to determine if a situation is theft or a training issue,” said Jason Zakaras, owner of Zak Foods, a 27-unit KFC franchise.

“Instead of losing money to theft, those dollars are re-invested in our business for new technology and equipment, raises, and bonuses,” said Heath Harrison, director of loss prevention at JRN Inc., a 154-unit KFC franchise. “That money is so beneficial when it goes to our bottom line.”

“We’re extremely proud to partner with an innovative QSR like KFC. Their expertise leveraging technology to focus on continuous improvement, employee training, and operational efficiencies aligns with our mission to help restauranteurs run smarter, more profitable restaurants,” said Jason Tober, Delaget CEO.

I’m looking forward to helping our customers overcome these obstacles and see real improvements in their efficiencies and margins through the business intelligence and resources Delaget offers,” said Sandhoefner.

Prior to Delaget, Sandhoefner served as Vice President of Sales at Minneapolis-based Great Bay Software, where he led a sales organization dedicated to providing network security software.

Biscuitville FRESH SOUTHERN partners with Delaget to reduce QSR loss, better train staff

SAINT LOUIS PARK, Minn., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Delaget, LLC, the only data analytics and business process outsourcing experts focused on the QSR industry, announces a new client relationship with Biscuitville FRESH SOUTHERN®, a 54-unit family-owned quick service restaurant based in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“In the past, we couldn’t easily identify and address employee theft and inefficiencies. We had some systems in place, but it wasn’t as streamlined or as transparent as we would have liked,” said Todd Berry, Special Project Manager at Biscuitville.

Biscuitville implemented Delaget Guard, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that reduces loss to employee theft and error by using proprietary algorithms to find exceptions in restaurant data, prioritizing those exceptions by monetary impact, and recommending specific actions restaurant managers can take to reduce loss and better train employees.

“Now that we’re using Delaget Guard, we don’t have to spend time compiling and reviewing paper reports or receipts. Delaget wraps up all of our data and helps shine a light on what’s really going on in our restaurants. We can easily see the data that’s most important to track – such as employee meals, refunds, discounts, and cancelled orders – and take action right away,” Berry added.

Delaget Guard helps operators and managers like Todd reclaim lost revenue and save time. Delaget Guard:

  • Recommends actions for highest-impact areas of theft, loss, and training opportunities
  • Monetizes losses, showing the impact to the bottom line and return on loss prevention investments
  • Grades employees and ranks stores and areas based on performance
  • Provides details down to the transaction level and integrates with your video surveillance systems

And it only takes around 5 minutes a day to use.

“What excites us the most about Delaget Guard is that it will not only help us find employee theft, but it will also help us identify the biggest opportunities for operational and training improvements – and will help Biscuitville create better employee policies,” said Berry.

“We know how busy QSR operators and staff are. That’s why we built our solutions to be as user-friendly and intuitive as possible. In just minutes a day, our customers can dramatically improve operations and reduce loss. And, they can spend more time helping their guests and providing a better customer experience. We’re proud to partner with an emerging brand like Biscuitville and look forward to their continued growth and success,” said Jason Tober, Delaget CEO.
