FEDA Tech Committee Takes Deep Dive Into Data Initiatives

FEDA’s Industry Technology Committee, composed of distributors and dealers, manufacturers, service reps, and sales rep partners, met last month to discuss data initiatives recommendations proposed in a new FEDA member assessment report.

The committee discussed data standardization between the groups and agreed to look at how various types of data might be addressed through a standardization process, how ERP systems would be considered, what the short and long-term cost to companies would be, and whether using a pilot group to test initial steps might be helpful. The group will work with AutoQuotes and DATAgility to review this information in the next several months to develop recommendations for FEDA. The committee is co-chaired by Brad Pierce, Restaurant Equipment World, and Eric Ellingson, Bargreen-Ellingson. Its members include:

Dealer/Distributors Jameel Burkett, Burkett; Mason Greene, Hotel & Restaurant Supply; Ryan McPhail, Curtis Restaurant Equipment; Jacob Morgan, TriMark Strategic; Eric Schmitt, Rapids Wholesale Equipment

Manufacturers Paul Bartelt, Vollrath; Rick Caron, Welbilt; Joe Carlson, Lakeside; Erik Koenig, Heritage Foodservice Equipment Group; Ted Macksam, Hatco; Cindy Zbytniewski, Alto-Shaam

Service Rep Emanuela Delgado, Parts Town

Sales Rep Alison Cody, MAFSI

Consultants Jim Contardi and Radek Stypulkowski, AutoQuotes
