RFMA 2018 Preview: How to Make Things Better When You Are Too Busy  

Whether managing hundreds of locations or a couple of restaurants, employing data has become a dominant trend for facility managers. In this session, learn how Panda Restaurant Group and RPM Pizza are utilizing CMMS solutions, business intelligence, and machine learning in a way that hides complexity but powers big results. As part of the discussion, Panda will address how they keep a de-centralized team - across 2,000 locations - working efficiently and on the same page, while RPM will discuss how a local franchisee is able to gain new and invaluable insight into their storefront by using these various technologies.
