May 14, 2019 – Compeat, the most comprehensive all-in-one integrated restaurant accounting, back office, workforce, and intelligence management software announced today that they have partnered with Vitaligent, for a tech talk at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) trade show in Chicago.  The session pairs Paul Dodd, SVP of Sales for Compeat and Raul Celorio, VP of IT for Vitaligent, LLC to discuss how Jamba Juice was able to reduce their Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) through the use of business Intelligence.

National Restaurant AssociationThe session, titled Juiced Up on Data – Why BI is the Secret Ingredient to Jamba Juice’s Success, will discuss how Jamba Juice was able to turn the vast amount of data they collected through their POS and turn it into something actionable to improve operations, streamline communications among their departments, and reduce costs. All attendees are encouraged to attend the session on Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 11:30 AM CST in the Innovation Theater: North Hall – Booth 5575.

A report published by Small Business Trends revealed that 63% of restaurant owners and managers say they would invest in technology if it made their day-to-day operations more efficient and 58% said they’d invest in technology if it helped them reduce costs and overhead. This session is the chance for operators to hear from a peer how the right technology can do both.

“Our new customer base is growing quickly while existing customers continue to purchase additional modules at an amazing rate,” states Jeff Stone, CEO of Compeat. “From our conversations with customers the growth is driven by the ever-increasing complexity of running a restaurant. As operators face the daily challenges of ever-changing labor laws, high employee turnover, and slim margins, technology is becoming an essential component of success for any restaurant.”

NRA is the largest annual food service show in the country and is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.  The event brings together more than 43,000 industry professional and has an amazing history of educating, inspiring, and shaping the restaurant industry.  While the issues that created the need for NRA might have been prohibition, fair wages, and segregation, the association is now guiding modern-day operators on how to harness technology to increase profitability, manage their workforce, and drive efficiency.

“We are thrilled to be exhibiting at the NRA show again this year,” continues Stone.  “The timing could not be better for our company as Compeat just announced the release of Advantage 2.0 with an improved user experience and enhanced reporting. We look forward to sharing these improvements with everyone at the show.”
