How Woven Supports Responsible Franchising

June 5, 2024

By integrating all the operational tools that a franchise business needs into a single platform, Woven enhances efficiency, accountability, and growth in multi-unit businesses.

Coined by the IFA, Responsible Franchising means protecting the integrity of the franchise model itself and the community of small business owners and workers it supports. The Responsible Franchising mission is to protect, enhance and promote franchising…not franchisors, and not franchisees. 

“Franchising only works when everyone succeeds together. That success requires an alignment of interests. When the franchisor isn’t adequately profitable, the whole system suffers, as there’s no money for innovation or marketing. When the franchisees aren’t adequately profitable, the whole system suffers; franchisees won’t validate their investment to new franchisee prospects to support franchise sales.”

David Humphrey, IFA Chairman

Here’s how Woven supports Responsible Franchising for both Zors and Zees:

Benefits for Franchisors

  1. Centralized Operations:
    Woven consolidates multiple operational functions into one interface, allowing franchisors to oversee and manage all their franchise units efficiently. This includes compliance, employee management, and operations.
  2. Compliance and Liability Controls:
    Franchisors can ensure all units adhere to industry standards and regulations through Woven’s Compliance Suite. This reduces legal risks and maintains brand integrity across all locations.
  3. Learning and Development:
    With Woven’s integrated Learning Management System (LMS), franchisors can provide consistent training and development programs. This ensures all employees are up to date with the latest procedures and standards.

Benefits for Franchisees

  1. Operational Efficiency:
    Woven helps franchisees optimize labor, manage facility and equipment maintenance, and streamline day-to-day operations. This reduces managerial overhead and allows focus on customer service and growth.
  2. Improved Communication:
    The platform’s team communication tools, including chat and announcements, ensure that all staff are informed and aligned. This fosters a cohesive and productive work environment.
  3. Accountability and Performance Tracking:
    Woven enables franchisees to track employee performance and accountability through a single interface. This helps identify and address issues promptly, improving overall operational efficiency.
