Fintech and IMI Working Together to Provide Beverage Alcohol Management Solutions
TAMPA, Fla. — Financial Information Technologies, LLC (“Fintech”), the leading B2B solutions provider for the beverage alcohol industry, in collaboration with IMI, an agency dedicated to helping hospitality clients with marketing programs and promotions, merchandising, and operational tools, offer a solution providing automated beverage program management to the hospitality industry.
This program supports restaurants, bars, and hotels by monitoring established approved product list compliance across all locations nationwide. Businesses can use the automated dashboard to review the purchases of approved products at each location, their spending with each alcohol supplier, and track lapses in product case equivalents for the beverage program brand selections.
Fintech’s beverage program management tool also provides on-premise retailers with actionable purchase data insights that help maximize their buying strategy based on the products that have the highest consumer demand.
“Partnering with industry leaders like IMI helps us further our mission of continually improving our customers’ operations and bottom line. In just a few short months of this program, we already have had thousands of sites improve their alcohol spend, manage their rebates, and improve their menu consistency across their respective chains. We look forward to continuing to develop innovations with IMI in the future,” said Tad Phelps, Fintech CEO.
“Fintech’s innovative Data Solutions platform has brought beverage excellence to the forefront with our mutual clients,” says Larry McGinn, President of IMI. “IMI and our clients now enjoy line-of-sight to actionable data on product purchasing, program adoption, national average acquisition costs, and purchasing lifts on promotional activations. Our collaboration with the Fintech Team is outstanding.”
