American Blue Ribbon Holdings Renews ArrowStream OnDemand for Five Years
Chicago, IL-November 18, 2014 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company for supply chain organizations, announced American Blue Ribbon Holdings (“ABRH”), the eighth largest restaurant holding company in the nation, renewed its ArrowStream OnDemand subscription for five more years.
Prior to partnering with ArrowStream in 2010, ABRH spent more than 100 hours per month on its auditing process. OnDemand identifies contract price variances prior to an agreement’s effective date and allows ABRH’s supply chain team to take a pre-emptive approach to reduce time spent on this process by 90%. OnDemand-driven results surpass expected Key Performance Indicators, and the technology enables customers like ABRH to drive out costs and improve supply chain processes.
“OnDemand, especially the pre-emptive audit capabilities, is not only a huge enhancement to our internal operations, but has also improved relationships with our distributors,” said Mark Hampton, Chief Supply Chain Officer at ABRH. “ArrowStream shares our core belief of embracing change in order to achieve success and through the partnership and innovative technology we continue to challenge the status quo and provide the highest level of service to our customers.”
With OnDemand, ABRH will continue to manage all aspects of the contracts for its customer portfolio of five major restaurant chains in a centralized repository. OnDemand provides the capabilities to easily manage purchasing for multiple brands and identify opportunities to bring more spend under contract. The team at ABRH also benefits by gaining inventory visibility across its network, preventing stock-outs or obsolescence, and ensuring customers receive high-quality products on time.
“We have built OnDemand to overcome the common foodservice supply chain challenges faced by our customers,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer at ArrowStream. “Instead of digging through complicated spreadsheets and managing multiple points of disparate data, OnDemand provides our customers with a single source of truth. By surfacing the important information through our analytics platform, strategic and tactical sourcing, inventory, and quality issues can be addressed in real-time.”
