MALMO, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - Chainformation, a leading provider of franchise software and franchise intranets, today announced that ABC-Ställningar, a Scandinavian Scaffolding Services Company, has implemented the CCM franchise software platform. A case study of the software implementation can be found here.
ABC-Ställningar, which is rapidly expanding and servicing companies such as Skanska and PEAB, will use the CCM platform to provide franchisees with:
- Faster, role-based communication
- Real-time access to operations manuals
- Franchisee Training
"We sought to partner with someone that had technical expertise and also a deep understanding of the franchise industry. When we learnt about Chainformation and saw their CCM franchise software in action, we knew that they could help our organization get ready to franchise quickly," says Björn Bjelkenstedt, CEO at ABC-Ställningar.
ABC-Ställningar operates in an industry where safety is paramount. As a franchise, this places emphasis on training franchisees how to prevent accidents and preserve the health and safety of all employees, sub-contractors, and visitors.
To capture these safety-critical work processes, Chainformation developed an online operations manual using WorkMap™, a proprietary methodology that results in better operations manuals that require less administration at lower cost. By using WorkMap™, a franchisor is typically able to reduce the volume of an existing manual by between 35-45%.
The implementation of the CCM platform, which included integration with an ERP-system, took under two weeks. In a next step, ABC-Ställningar intends to implement a media asset module to provide franchisees with marketing support.
"Working with ABC Ställningar is extremely exciting. Not only does it show that our franchise software is an excellent fit also in industries that are not franchise-typical, but also that we can help organizations who are on the verge of franchising their business, or have very few franchise processes in place. Our franchise software and methodology gets you ready to franchise at scale, and pace," says Anders Hall.
