Innovative Solutions to Critical Restaurant Industry Challenges

In the fast-moving restaurant industry, innovation and optimization are table stakes. Rapidly changing consumer behavior and intense competition demand a new level of quality, value, and convenience across the industry, from the restaurants themselves to the goods and services companies that support them.

At the same time, the restaurant industry faces daunting pressures like labor shortages, rapidly evolving technology, rising costs, low margins, and supply chain disruptions.

Confronting these challenges can create opportunities for companies that know how to harness them. And forward-thinking restaurant companies are realizing that staying ahead of the pack requires driving efficiency by evaluating new solutions and business models.

Auxis restaurant industry solutions can help. Leading restaurant brands rely on our innovative, customized services to optimize operations, inspire customer loyalty, and increase their bottom lines.

Our unique offering merges next-generation digital innovation, optimized processes, and the advantages of nearshoring to deliver best-in-class services that span customer care; point of sale (POS) operations; one-of-a-kind remote compliance audits and coaching; IT store support for franchisors, franchisees, and corporate locations; dynamic analytics; and back-office support.

Unprecedented disruption is causing the restaurant industry to pivot its business models, operations, and technology. Partnering with Auxis delivers the unrivaled solutions, best-in-breed talent, and cutting-edge technology to help you elevate customer experiences, boost profitability, and unlock appetizing results.

Restaurant operators obviously have to look for creative solutions in this environment because the traditional restaurant model, from a cost standpoint, was not designed to endure the depth and breadth of this sustained period of much, much higher food and labor cost.

The Auxis Difference

Why Auxis is Different from Other Restaurant Services Providers

Our cost-effective, world-class, virtual Auditing & Brand Protection Services leverage advanced technology and a nearshore Center of Excellence to ensure store locations adhere to brand standards – delivering consistent, positive experiences and product quality to customers wherever they go. This eliminates the headache and expense of pricey and inefficient in-person store audits in a way that has never been done before in the restaurant industry. While most brands touch their stores only once or twice per year, our clients can conduct store contact and reviews every quarter or more: increasing revenue, optimizing customer experiences, and operating their businesses more effectively.  

Leading restaurant brands and Fortune 1000 companies have relied on our innovative, customized solutions to optimize operations, inspire customer loyalty, and increase their bottom lines since 1997. Besides extensive experience with traditional restaurants and food service companies, our proven track record in the quick-service restaurant industry (QSR) helps us craft solutions that create the right value for the franchise model. Our offerings drive return on investment (ROI) and scalability for franchise companies and corporate locations while also targeting what makes brands attractive to franchisees, like strong back-office support for their stores   

We take a business-led approach to technology innovation, strategically layering the right technology that aligns to your business goals. Our cutting-edge solutions are tailored to your needs; for instance, driving efficiency in back-office processes with automation, using analytics as a competitive advantage, or applying generative AI to elevate your online reputation by quickly responding to customer reviews.

We don’t just come in to advise, we can become your operational partners, providing you with the people, tools, and best practices needed to successfully bring you step-by-step through your business transformation journey. Our white-glove consulting teams deliver specific recommendations and an implementation roadmap to improve, innovate, and create value in your operations. Our customized nearshore BPO and ITO solutions can empower your success by providing effective implementation, operational excellence, and fast access to the latest digital capabilities and top talent. 

Our location in top nearshore markets ensures outsourcing doesn’t sacrifice performance. Partnering with Auxis delivers a deep bench of highly educated BPO and ITO talent, helping you beat labor shortages with subject matter expertise and certifications across critical business functions. Our higher-level talent also provides the critical-thinking skills needed as organizations start to outsource more complex, judgment-intensive processes. We further enhance your operations with instant access to high-quality resources with specialized skillsets like analytics, automation, and cybersecurity that can be difficult or expensive to hire at home.

We are nearshore outsourcing pioneers, recognized annually on IAOP’s Outsourcing Global 100 list, and continue to stand out as one of the only market leaders with a robust nearshore model. Our global delivery platform in top Latin American hubs like Costa Rica and Colombia combines significant labor arbitrage with highly educated talent, cultural alignment, outstanding English proficiency, and time zone compatibility – driving the real-time communication, collaboration, and critical-thinking skills essential to supporting processes across your value chain. 

Your success is our success. We tailor our nearshore outsourcing services to match the challenges and opportunities unique to your business. Through our high-touch delivery model and flexible, results-driven approach, we become an extension of your team – optimizing processes, elevating operational visibility, and holding ourselves accountable for value realization.
