BandyWorks was founded by database zealots experienced in extracting key performance facts from company data banks. We know empirically that precise measurements and smart analysis makes hard decisions objective – not opinions but fact-based reasoning. Even better, changes can also be measured to ensure they have the desired impact.
Decades spent building and managing enterprise data-driven systems across the globe provide the foundation for the current Quik Data System that is being used to create store performance accountability. The BandyWorks team took an architecture created to solve complex computer system automation and applied our experience gleaned from working inside some of the best C-Store operations innovators. The result is a high-tech approach proven in the world’s most demanding global companies, but custom built to provide C-Store specific intelligence to your operations. It’s high-tech intelligence wrapped inside an intuitive common-sense accountability system. Owners, DMs, store managers and cashiers use Quik Data to make fast and friendly service just a little simpler and a bit more profitable.
Many of the top 100 C-Store companies and numerous high-growth operators use Quik Data to focus and simplify their business processes. These clients receive daily insights to increase sales and save their staff hours of work each week. It collects, analyzes, scores and communicates the information needed to save time, resolve issues and measure success.
Tom Bandy, the founder uses his entrepreneurial approach with client’s, team-mates and partners. His designs always involve technology to simplify work and save time. As a self-taught techie, Tom has traveled the world to work with companies that use information technology to increase productivity. Today, his C-Store work involves direct interaction with leading companies – watching and listening to challenges to find processes that take too much time. He has assembled a team of like-minded data geeks that love making time from data to help their users get home a little sooner and have just a little less worry.
Deep Technology Experience Ensures Quik Data’s Robust Reliability
Our extensive experience driving large data based systems that are distributed commercially has ensured a solid architecture with simple access to your information. Quik Data is scalable to grow with our clients as they add more stores, and extensible to add all the functionality that we envision will help our clients grow their businesses.
The system includes a role-based security system that enables you to empower those staff members that need information, without overloading them with information that is not necessary for their jobs. The security model supports the mission to provide the trends, grades and recommendations to maximize each person’s work.
