Research firm Technomic launched its new Foodservice Technology Navigator Program during Winsight’s annual technology conference, FSTEC, which took place from September 8-11.
The program offers technology suppliers ongoing intelligence and sales strategy support to capitalize on the growth opportunities currently available within the foodservice industry.
Powering this new resource are Technomic foodservice experts Melissa Wilson, principal, and Will Notini, director of consumer insights.
Wilson specializes in the operator practice arena and directs the off-premise practice, while Notini designs and executes custom research to address a wide variety of food and beverage business interests.
Included with membership is access to a variety of advisory services, ranging from presentations to strategy support, from these subject matter experts.
Technomic says the program can be used to answer questions like:
- What restaurant chains are the right partners for our business?
- Which factors are either accelerating or hindering technology integration in restaurant operations?
- Who are the leading technology providers as ranked by restaurant operators and what is their awareness of emerging players?
- How do consumers rate their visits to leading restaurant chains based on convenience and technology attributes?
Patrick Noone, executive vice president of business development at Technomic, said: “Over the years at FSTEC, we have seen a strong need from technology companies seeking foodservice data but not necessarily knowing where to turn
“This program makes it easy for these companies to gain access to all the tools they need to enter the foodservice industry with confidence.”
