CHICAGO — Chicago-based CHD Expert North America, LLC, a world leader in data for the away-from-home global foodservice market, has partnered with Phoenix’s AFS Technologies, a provider of business automation solutions for the food and beverage industry.
The aim of the partnership is to help the foodservice channel in North America and Europe address two major challenges in finance and sales: identification of multi-dip payments and sales void opportunities. “This strategic partnership, along with existing AFS solutions, will help our customers gain insight into sales patterns in the CPG supply chain,” said Kurien Jacob, CEO of AFS. “AFS is focused on connecting manufacturers, brokers, distributors and operators to improve channel visibility for related partners.”
Cathy Kearns, GM, CHD Expert, also explained the value of the partnership. “The combined solution collects and manages disparate data sources from manufacturers, distributors and operators and combines this with the rich metric data from CHD Expert. Additionally, the combination of data and easy-to-use solution provides an incredibly rich and intelligent application, by which sales can begin to segment and target operator opportunities.”
