Software for Franchises

FranchiseBase is a web-based application that helps franchises to connect and grow their franchise network with a range of useful franchise-focused tools.

What does FranchiseBase do?

FranchiseBase was developed in response to our experiences with franchises, both new and well established.

Through our on-going collaboration with franchises, we found that there wasn't a suitable platform available that was truly focused on the needs of franchisors and franchisees.

FranchiseBase offers many features that make life easier for everyone within a franchise network, including:

  • A secure location for all franchise documentation
  • Franchising and Operations manuals made accessible from anywhere and on any device
  • Rich analytics in order for franchisors to see when and how their franchisees are interacting with their documentation
  • A centralised branding resource called 'Brand Bank' to ensure branding is consistent across the network
  • Secure discussion forums to encourage collaboration and communication across franchise networks
  • Notifications and Tasks system for the quick dissemination on information across the network

In addition, Franchise Recruitment tools are industry leading, enabling franchisors to manage their recruitment from all leading franchise portals as well as their own website.

FranchiseBase helps franchises of all sizes to connect and grow their franchise network

Operations Manuals

At the core of FranchiseBase is an easy to use manual system that allows franchises to share, update, search and bookmark your manuals in real-time.

It can be a challenge to make sure your franchise network stays up to date with the latest developments from head office.

The FranchiseBase manuals system provides a simple means of updating and sharing operations and training manuals with the franchise network, as well as giving franchisors full control of which users can access specific documents.

Using the analytics tools built into FranchiseBase, franchisors can see which users have viewed their documents, manuals and files.

All users can search, bookmark and export their manuals with ease too.

Manuals Setup for You

Your large operations manuals can be transferred into the system for you for a small fee.

Access Manuals Anywhere

Update your manuals in realtime

Analytics to Track Engagement

Above all FranchiseBase simplifies the task of managing franchise manuals, so franchisors can keep your network up to date with the latest updates as soon as they happen.

Will a franchise system help my franchise?

For many franchises, it's common to use a range of different systems and services in order to control and manage their network.

The real benefit of a service like FranchiseBase is that it's built specifically for franchises, focusing on the core needs of franchisors to make managing their network on a daily basis easy.

Franchisors by their very nature have to wear many hats, whether it's supporting existing franchisees, managing documentation, training new recruits, overseeing marketing or actively recruiting.

FranchiseBase aims to bring all of these tasks into one single location that's both secure and simple for their network to operate.

It's accessibility on mobile and tablet devices means it's well suited to any kind of franchise, whether office based or mobile such as van-based franchises.
