Saint Louis Park, Minn. — Delaget, LLC, the only data analytics and business process outsourcing experts focused on the QSR industry, has formed a new client relationship with Bell American Group, LLC, the third largest Taco Bell franchise group in the U.S. with over $300 million in sales.
Bell American will be using 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.
“There’s a lot of opportunity for theft in the QSR industry. It’s one of those things you know is happening, but you don’t necessarily know how it’s specifically happening,” says Sarat Koneru, senior vice president of operations at Bell American.
“We wanted to take the guesswork out of identifying and investigating employee theft and error. And, we wanted a solution that would save time for our above store leaders and general managers. That’s why we chose to use Delaget GUARD,” says Koneru.
Delaget GUARD is an analytics solution that takes the detective work out of loss to employee theft and error. Instead of searching through stacks of exception reports, restaurant managers can quickly and proactively address issues using the system’s daily “top 4” checklist of action items. Since the checklist is prioritized based on potential monetary impact, managers only spend time on issues that will yield the best financial results.
“I was spending one to 2 hours a day using our previous tool. With Delaget GUARD, it takes me 15 minutes at most,” says Nick Rader, manager of restaurant reporting and analysis.
Bell American Group, LLC, a division of Flynn Restaurant Group, the largest U.S. restaurant franchise group in America with over 850 units and $1.9 billion in sales, owns and operates 269 Taco Bell and associated YUM! Brands restaurants, making it the third largest Taco Bell franchise group in America. Bell American Group operates across eight states.
For more than 15 years, Delaget, LLC has helped multi-unit operators run smarter, more profitable restaurants by serving up actionable guidance each day to increase profits and reduce loss.
