In 2011 Tom Bandy, a data management expert, was hired by one of the top 10 C-Store chains to help their in-house team solve a data management problem. The project, which required months of work, allowed Tom to gain an understanding of the C-Store industry. He saw the significant advantage that the large chains enjoyed versus their smaller competitors, particularly given their ability to pay for and build sophisticated, proprietary data analytics software to help manage their businesses.
After successfully completing the project, for which he received an award, Tom started BandyWorks. His mission was to create and build innovative data solutions for small and mid-sized C-Store operators. Solutions like the fast setup of tobacco rebates, enforcement of age verification, and the most precise and user-friendly shrinkage detection system.
If you’re looking for innovative solutions that leverage your data to help manage and grow your C-Store business, and successfully compete with the big chains, the team at BandyWorks would like to talk with you.
