Franchise & Royalty Assurance

The challenges of running a profitable franchise organization are many.  To assure compliance with franchise agreements and accurate reporting of sales, independent audits of franchisees must be done on a consistent basis.  Everyone has heard of cases involving franchisees who setup ghost P.O.S. systems, sell company-branded products in unauthorized and undocumented ways, costing companies into the millions of dollars in lost royalties.  IntelliShop’s services will identify if such issues exist in your organization, stop them quickly, and help you claw-back the under-reported payments due.
