Clovis, California - March 20, 2017: MultiSight announces today a new partnership with sweetFrog, a chain of frozen yogurt retail stores where customers create their own soft-serve frozen yogurt with numerous flavors and toppings from which to choose. Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, sweetFrog is owned and operated by sweetFrog Enterprises, LLC and has over 340 stores operating in 26 states, with international locations in the United Kingdom, Egypt, and the Dominican Republic.

MultiSight is now the exclusive video surveillance vendor for sweetFrog's corporate locations and the preferred vendor for franchisees. Since installing the MultiSight system in all 65 corporate stores, the company has taken full advantage of the cloud-based IP video service to save and share clips relating to customer service, operational, and liability-related issues. "Installing MultiSight cameras has been beneficial on multiple levels,” said Patrick Galleher, sweetFrog CEO. “While our initial intent was to use them for security purposes; after putting them to use, we realized they were helping us run shops more efficiently.”

The company is also seeing an impact on their bottom line. “We started using MultiSight in a one-store test and were ecstatic when we saw a 15% increase in revenue shortly after the system was installed,” says Brandon Price, a district manager for sweetFrog.  “We’ve been able to better supervise employees and use the system to help in training.  What’s more, the cameras have given us confidence in eliminating employee theft."

“After testing, we decided to install MultiSight in all stores,” Galleher said. "Because MultiSight is so easy to use and easy to connect to all locations, our managers are using it daily to gain insight into what’s happening in the stores.”

The company is also leveraging MultiSight’s analytics to measure customer traffic in real time to better manage staffing and monitor conversion ratios.

“We are very proud to be associated with a company like sweetFrog, with such forward-thinking values” states Herve Fages, Managing Director of MultiSight. “It is rewarding to see the positive impact from our team’s focus on customer service and operational efficiency. We look forward to a very long term partnership.”
