WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — Tibersoft, the leading provider of trading partner intelligence solutions for the foodservice industry, announced that Perkins Restaurants will rollout the Tibersoft IQ solution across all their 480 locations. The Restaurant Company, Operator and Franchisor of Perkins Restaurants, recently acquired Marie Callender’s Pie Shops, Inc. and will expand that already successful Tibersoft rollout thus creating one enterprise view into the total company’s spending and supplier contracts. In August the Restaurant company changed its name to Perkins and Marie Callender’s Inc.(“PMCI”).
PMCI chose Tibersoft because of the measurable ROI and ease of use as demonstrated at Marie Callender’s over the last year. The combined visibility to all procurement activities in less than 48 hours will help maximize operational efficiencies across their growing multi-concept organization.
PMCI Executive Vice President of Foodservice, James F. Barrasso explained that “the combined companies now represent $1.2 Billion in sales and over $300 million in procurement. The Tibersoft solution will allow us to understand our business better.”
Tibersoft CEO Keith Enstice attributes this decision as another vote of confidence in Tibersoft’s solid service to its clients. “We look forward to further enhancing our relationship with Perkins and Marie Callender’s Inc. as an operational strategic partner.”
