CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ArrowStream, a leading provider of supply chain solutions for the foodservice industry, announced today an agreement with Einstein Noah Restaurant Group(ENRGI) to enhance supply chain management throughout ENRGI’s operations for its many brands including Einstein Bros.®, Noah’s New York Bagels®, and Manhattan Bagel®.
Driven by the need to achieve greater savings and efficiencies in a tough competitive environment, ENRGI’s selected ArrowStream OnDemand, a supply chain software solution, for its ability to drive significant cost savings and improve the bottom line.
ArrowStream OnDemand will synchronize and aggregate supply chain information from ENRGI restaurants and its distribution network and trading partners providing ENRGI with a centralized supply chain resource that enables more informed and nimble inventory management, efficient and accurate spend rationalization, improved compliance management, increased restaurant automation and promotions management.
ENRGI will be able to quickly take advantage of this solution because 80 percent of its partners currently participate in ArrowStream’s Network of more than 2,300 manufacturers, distributors and chain operators.
“We anticipate a steady rise in efficiencies and cost savings with ArrowStream OnDemand as we gain greater insight into our supply chain management processes. Our goal is to reduce category spend, control price variance, suffer fewer stock outs and rely less on inefficient manual processes, which will help us better control costs and implement improvements,” said Scott Harvey, SVP Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, Inc.
Steven LaVoie, CEO and Chairman of ArrowStream said, “To provide real value to consumers in this competitive environment, chain operators and their partners need solutions that continue to deliver savings and efficiencies.

More than $15 billion of product moves through and is tracked in the ArrowStream Network providing operational efficiencies, economies of scale and financial benefits to all trading partners in it.
