NACUFS Show Feedback

This week's NACUFS show was marked by steady traffic of operators visiting Sponsors' booths asking "what's new"?

Even without much FSR signage at sponsors' booths (exceptions being Kraft, Basic American and Barber foods) awareness of and participation in Foodservice Rewards was very high and bonus point gift cards where a hit.

Opinions of operators echoed those of Corey Wilkinson, Dining Services Cash Operations Manager at Haverford College, who pulled me aside to say how he liked the new website - especially the ease of navigation and the new rewards selection which he had trouble accessing before the redesign.

When asked "what can we be doing to improve the program?" C&U operators' number one request was for reward code scanners. (Here's a fact sheet describing how to order them. BI fulfills scanners directly to operators with your supplied inserts so we can track activity and avoid sending duplicates.)

The second most common request was for more program sponsors. Yeah, we're working on that!

Event-based communications - now easier!

With the introduction of print-on-demand, it's easier than ever to recognize operator milestones and encourage new ones.

Simply provide art and set the trigger event(s) and your Coalition Manager will handle the rest. Once the rules are defined, it's "fire & forget" - whether you are communicating with a handful of operators (or thousands!) who achieve the milestone during the specified time frame.

This fact sheet details pricing.
