Award recognizes GoodData customer for third consecutive year

San Francisco, June 15, 2017 – National sandwich chain, Firehouse Subs, is one of 10 organizations to receive the 2017 Nucleus Research Technology ROI Award, for its implementation of the GoodData Enterprise Insights platform with return on investment of 683 percent. Previous recipients of the award include GoodData customers MediGain in 2016 and Raise in 2015.

“This recognition is a true honor, a credit to our partnership and a testament of the value this platform provides to our franchise community,” said Firehouse Subs Director of Reporting & Analytics, Danny Walsh. “GoodData not only delivered a program that equips our franchisees with the data-driven insights they need to improve their business, but also partnered with us to ensure its successful implementation, making such an outstanding ROI possible.”

“This is the third year in a row that a GoodData customer has ranked among the ROI Award winners,” noted GoodData CEO and founder, Roman Stanek. “We’re humbled to see another testimony to the bottom-line benefits that a well-implemented system of insights can deliver.”

The ROI Awards recognize end-user organizations that have conducted the most successful technology implementations as measured by financial and business results. Nucleus Research assesses the cost and benefit of each applicant’s deployments to quantify each project’s ROI over a three-year period. Awards are given to the top 10 implementations showing the highest value per dollar spent.

“ROI is one of the most powerful tools for business, providing clear-cut insight on value. It’s that cold-hard number that drives good tech decisions. Firehouse Subs’ deployment of GoodData’s Enterprise Insights platform delivered tremendous ROI, setting an example for the industry and earning an award this year,” said Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research. “Firehouse Subs is an example of how IT investments closely aligned to business goals can deliver significant ROI and take full advantage of the GoodData solution.”
