Franchise operations have been forced to quickly adapt to a new remote world. Other than essential frontline workers, everyone is now expected to work from home–or else not at all. To keep franchise businesses running, technology stacks have been put to the test, with mass adoption of enterprise cloud and SaaS applications and new collaboration tools. But this new way of work isn’t just temporary.
As new efficiencies are uncovered, many of these changes will be here to stay. In a recent article for Newsweek, Kate Lister, president of consulting firm Global Workplace Analytics said, “This may be the tipping point for remote work. I don’t think the office is going away, but more people will be spending at least part of the week at home.”
To prepare your franchise for a post-coronavirus world, now is the time to revamp your franchise tech stack. Not only will you need to continue supporting remote employees during a potentially long and very gradual return to ‘business as usual,’ but you will need to compete with franchises who have found new efficiencies and reemerged stronger than ever. Will that be you? Make sure you have the right franchise technology stack in place to help franchisees thrive during and after the time of coronavirus.
