Tavistock Restaurant Collection Increases Operational Transparency and Consistency with ServiceChannel

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 01, 2017) - ServiceChannel, the leading SaaS service automation platform for facilities managers and contractors, today announced that Tavistock Restaurant Collection became the newest restaurant portfolio to select ServiceChannel for more visibility and transparency of its facilities management operations such as spending, budgeting, vendor performance and automated invoice processing.

In addition to the need for greater transparency, another key criteria in evaluating service automation solutions for Tavistock was the ability to achieve consistency in its FM operations, an important consideration for a rapidly growing organization comprised of 17 upscale and unique restaurant brands with locations throughout the country including Abe & Louie's, AquaKnox, Atlas, Canvas Restaurant & Market, Napa Valley Grille, California Cafe, Atlantic Fish Co., Coach Grill, ZED451, Joe's American Bar & Grill, Top Catch at Joe's Waterfront, Blackhawk Grille, Timpano, Cafe del Rey, Canonita, Sapporo and the soon-to-open Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen.

"Procedural inconsistency for facility operations at our locations was an issue," said Eric Rainville, Director of Facilities at Tavistock Restaurant Collection. "It was a real challenge to manage such a diverse and highly distributed portfolio with different products, equipment and processes at each location."

In addition to the inconsistency in operations, Tavistock struggled with the ad-hoc nature of managing repair and maintenance work orders. Each location initiated and received approvals for work orders through email using locally sourced service providers. Tracking work order process was done manually through spreadsheets, which significantly limited visibility and created a jumble of disparate data sources. In addition, the on-site restaurant managers were responsible for routine maintenance, often with little or no coordination with the facilities management team.

"Our company's mission is to be guest-obsessed in order to create a unique, memorable dining experience for patrons," Rainville said. "With the introduction of ServiceChannel, we look forward to increasing efficiency and creating an environment that allows our operators to better serve our guests."

Tavistock chose to deploy ServiceChannel service automation with project goals such as:

The company also will be taking advantage of a number of key components of ServiceChannel's facilities software such as a mobile GPS check-in app to better manage its external contractors and Planned Maintenance Manager to automate recurring tasks and take routine maintenance obligations off its managers' plates.

"We expect that the visibility and control of our repair and maintenance processes through ServiceChannel will give us increased transparency of our operations on a daily basis," Rainville said.
