Cloud Franchise Intranet

  • A cloud-based franchise intranet is a centralized digital workspace that helps both parties communicate and work together to be successful.

  • It gives digital access to suppliers, training, processions, and more. Most franchise businesses prefer cloud computing because it is convenient, affordable, and efficient.

  • Additionally, you won’t need to worry about security, maintenance, server costs, and updates. That being said, you will be able to focus more on growing your business.

  1. Ensures Franchise Compliance

Despite different ownerships, franchises follow a common trademark and process. Franchise compliance prevents putting the franchise operator at risk.

Consistency in using the brand messaging, image, and workflows should be aligned with the original franchise agreement. A Google-based intranet will help your franchise business needs be met.

2. Franchise Engagement

Just like any business, opinions are vital to help the business grow. With a Google-based intranet, you can easily provide tools like polls and forums to increase franchisee engagement and help you gain insights about specific topics.

3. Secured Communication

To have a successful partnership between the franchisor and franchisee, they should have better two-way communication. Cloud-based intranets like Google Site and Microsoft SharePoint can provide a secured platform where you can control the communication within your franchise business.

With Springboard Intranet, you can easily and quickly publish announcements, news, and information.

4. Saves Time and Money

The majority of franchise companies still send out hard copies of operational and product manuals to their franchisees. While this practice has been proven to be effective, this can be expensive and time-consuming in the long run. Additional expenses like these can be eliminated by having a centralized intranet platform where franchisors can effectively communicate with the franchisees.

5. Employee and Franchise Training

Most cloud-based intranets are able to provide online training for the convenience of the franchisee and employees. In-classroom training is outdated and expensive. Online training on a cloud-based intranet can be taken at the most convenient time for the employees.

6. Effective Document Management

Effective document management will help a business manage and organize important documents in a centralized location in the franchise intranet. Sophisticated document management systems like Google are collaborative and people can track who made the changes on a specific document.

7. Increases Collaboration and Productivity

A franchise intranet contains important information related to franchise operations. A cloud-based intranet like Springboard will help build a collaborative community where employees can read company news, share feedback, answer surveys, and ask questions.

8. Company Culture

Not putting importance on company culture can be stressful to the employees and can affect productivity. A franchise intranet can help develop a company culture that is aligned to the original franchise. Additionally, it can increase employee engagement. For instance, you can use your franchise directory (Steegle People) to help franchisees support one another on larger jobs.

9. Keep Information Updated

An outdated document or branding can harm your franchise business. A franchise intranet should have a fresh and updated operational manual, corporate logo, or company image. Having a centralized platform will keep everyone on the same page and prevent legal issues.

10. Accessibility

A cloud-based franchise intranet can be accessed using any device no matter where you are, as long as you have an internet connection. This will make it easier for you to communicate, support, and train your franchisees.
