Fourth announced enhancements to its advanced data and analytics capabilities through new strategic partnerships with four technology providers. Omnivore, Oracle, Lightspeed and Centegra have joined Fourth’s list of U.S. technology partners.
By seamlessly integrating with every major POS system, finance platform and many industry specific third-party applications, Fourth’s hospitality operations platform enables operators to maximize technology investments, eliminate data siloes and gain the data-driven insights needed to scale profitably.
According to the National Restaurant Association’s “2019 State of the Restaurant Industry Report,” 57% of restaurant operators plan to invest more in back-of-the-house technology systems this year. But with so many disparate systems and information streams coming from multiple sources, the ability to gain a complete understanding of an entire business operation in real time – and understand how things like menu publishing and predictive scheduling impact sales – is becoming increasingly difficult. Fourth’s end-to-end hospitality operations platform solves this problem by providing an open-architecture environment that enables operators to seamlessly integrate data across their technology ecosystem into one robust platform. With single sign-on, operators can access a wealth of analytics and dashboards customized to meet their specific business objectives, leading to quicker and better business decisions.
Fourth’s hospitality operations platform features a fully functioning Application Programming Interface (API) for third-party integrations. In addition to sales forecasting, scheduling, purchase-to-pay & inventory capabilities already built into the platform, operators can access data from many popular U.S.-based third-party applications as well as international technologies through Fourth’s global partnership program.
