You may have realized that developing software is not just a very expensive exercise but it also requires extensive technology knowledge to do it right. And then, platforms, versions, architecture and security issues increase the maintenance costs. By using software like FranDesQ®, you can leverage technical expertise of a company focused on technology and take advantage of best practices in franchising and economies of scale. Additionally, if you have specific needs as a franchisor, we can augment our offering to meet your requirements. You can even integrate your existing applications with FranDesQ® by using our REST API framework. Contact us for a live demo of FranDesQ®
You will be pleasantly surprised when you go through the features offered by FranDesQ®. Some of the features are available only in FranDesQ®. We interacted with several franchisors and franchise professionals over the past few years and our product management prioritized features based on most common requirements for the franchise business model. Many franchisors also had some major concerns. They weren’t satisfied with their current vendors in terms of service, support, price and/or the product stability: changing platforms every year, frustration the moment users log in, lack of support, lock-in with long-term contracts, etc. Can you relate to these problems? Sounds familiar? Contact us for a live demo of FranDesQ®

Service Oriented Architecture
Internally, FranDesQ® is implemented using a set of REST services for accessing data.

FranDesQ® service definitions are available to any customer interested in integrating FranDesQ® with other in-house applications, lead funnel applications or contact forms on your website. SOA improves long-term maintainability of the application thereby reducing the software maintenance cost for the franchisors. Powerful architecture working behind the scenes for you.

NoSQL technology is used in today’s highly scalable social media software and shared-economy apps. The highly scalable NoSQL store forms the foundation for integration with advanced features such as predictive analytics in our product roadmap.
