Arrowstream Recent Developments
In June 2021 ArrowStream released a major enhancement to its Contract Management solution that will simplify and accelerate the task of contract and price data management for restaurant chain operators and foodservice suppliers. As a central repository for supplier pricing agreements, ArrowStream's Contract Management solution powers a suite of spend and price analysis tools and exception driven alerts that enables teams to prevent pricing errors and discrepancies, proactively manage expiring pricing, identify opportunities to optimize spending, and automate price collection and communication with partners.
When used in conjunction with its Supplier Price Entry capability, restaurant chain operators can reduce the time they spend managing contract pricing by up to 75%, while supporting far greater accuracy and component-level visibility. New enhancements will allow users to simplify supplier contract and data management through a modern and intuitive interface that includes improved automation of administrative tasks to speed up often redundant and cumbersome processes for supply chain teams and their partners. Key features include a guided interface when adding new contracts, tailored views to see only what you need to see, and multi-level price entry to minimize keystrokes based on the complexity of the given contract.
In March 2020 ArrowStream has launched an online resource center in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, available to all foodservice supply chain professionals. ArrowStream remains committed to helping reduce the potential impact on the restaurant chain industry by continually monitoring and analyzing the environment and providing necessary tools and resources to answer new questions and plan for recovery.
ArrowStream’s product team has released and will continue to release, new features and functionality to the ArrowStream platform to help customers better manage operations during this time. Customers can now access new specialty dashboards and reports that quickly and easily display additional trends in their supply chain inventory and potential financial exposure. Using these new tools, customers have been able to better understand product movement and potential exposure based on current environmental conditions.
