Chicago, IL – August 18, 2015 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), a Software-as-a-Service provider for supply chain organizations, announced today that Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, the nation’s largest operator of bagel bakeries and a leader in the fast casual restaurant industry, will renew its contract with ArrowStream for its OnDemand software, which enables Einstein Noah Restaurant Group to better manage food spend and inventory across its brand portfolio of Einstein Bros. Bagels®, Noah’s New York Bagels® and Manhattan Bagel®.
Prior to partnering with ArrowStream in 2009, the supply chain team at Einstein Noah Restaurant Group was challenged with performing manual processes and limited visibility into supply chain operations. OnDemand provides the capabilities to easily manage purchasing for multiple brands and identify opportunities to bring more spend under contract, ultimately reducing food and beverage costs. The supply chain team at Einstein Noah Restaurant Group will continue to benefit from inventory visibility across its network, preventing stock-outs or obsolescence and ensuring customers receive high-quality products on time.
“Throughout the course of our relationship, ArrowStream has been an extension of our team, helping us to overcome supply chain challenges and to plan for the future,” said Eric Grundmeier, SVP Manufacturing & Supply Chain at Einstein Noah Restaurant Group.
OnDemand connects to disparate data sources and provides customers like Einstein Noah Restaurant Group with the information needed for proactive decision-making related to contract management, distributor inventory and quality management. Supply chain teams are able to take immediate action toward the most pressing challenges and act upon opportunities. OnDemand’s reporting capabilities allow users to analyze information at a high level or drill down to understand root cause of a problem, resulting in the flexibility required to keep up with the changing nature of the supply chain.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Einstein Noah Restaurant Group,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer at ArrowStream. “This is our sixth customer renewal this year, which is a testament to ArrowStream’s dedication to being the market leader with our next generation technology and commitment to our customers’ successes.”
