Congratulations, someone is interested in buying a franchise! However, any experienced franchisor knows that’s just the beginning of a long journey. There are numerous hurdles, pitfalls, tedious evaluations, checklists and legal maneuvers before you get a signature on the Franchise Agreement. Franchise recruitment is a complex process, and you need to ensure that everything is done correctly, documented and signed-off. Should you ever fall into dispute with a franchisee in the future, you have a complete record of what was said and done in the selling process.
Easily Manage a Complex Sales Funnel
You have a number of candidates at various stages in your recruitment pipeline. Most franchise recruitment processes have between 7 and 21 different stages, i.e steps that a candidate will progress through to reach that signature stage. It’s clear that whoever is in charge of franchise sales needs to be highly organised. It takes time, energy and a brilliantly efficient and process driven person to manage this process.
Build Efficiency and Automation Into Your Process
How do you make this efficient? Start with your recruitment process: map out each stage, document it, explain it, and then systemise it. The Recruitment / Candidates module is designed to assist you in every stage of your franchise recruitment process which is customised to support your unique business workflow.
Have the system track each stage, store notes, create documentation, send template emails, send out notifications and reminders to ensure no-one gets ‘stuck’ at a stage too long, even put your application forms online to stop that stack of papers building up too high. Plus, you get powerful reporting so you can tell that board meeting exactly what’s happening with recruitment.
