MURTEC – short for the Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Expo and Conference – is such a great networking opportunity. It’s wonderful to meet so many of our customers and hear how they are using our products, get feedback, and say “T_hanks, we really value your business!!_“ We love to hear that we are helping to simplify their lives by passing some control on to the employees. Equally fun is the opportunity to speak with other potential customers and hear about their initiatives for the year. Operations and IT are always so busy. It’s very interesting to hear about their priorities, and why and how these changes will impact their business.

We also had an opportunity to talk about Red Book Connect over and over again – our new holding company combines 5 industry powerhouses to deliver cloud-based solutions for hiring, training, scheduling, back office and standardization. MURTEC attendees light up when we told them why we formed this group of companies – to provide best-of-breed solutions that deliver operational visibility, where you only pay for what you use. And then there’s the ultimate reason – to provide solutions that allow management to be more efficient, so they can spend less time in the back office and more time with employees and guests on the floor.

The days are long, and so was the walk to the convention center room. We joked about starting a shuttle or helicopter service and using HotSchedules to schedule the transportation and drivers. The dinners were equally entertaining as we shared industry stories, plans for the conference sessions and of course, the after parties.

Besides walking away from the MURTEC show with some exciting potential new clients, I walked away with a confirmation on why I work in this industry! It is filled with amazingly kind, fun, high energy and outgoing people. We are all passionate about this industry and want to make improvements in any way we can.
