Cargill and PROS to present strategies and technology that operators can leverage to easily, profitably manage menus
HOUSTON, Feb. 22, 2017 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO) – the revenue and profit realization company – today announced plans to showcase its cloud-based modern commerce solutions at the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) Chain Operators EXchange (COEX). The event, which attracts more than 400 senior decision makers and leaders – and planned expressly for operators – is scheduled for March 5-7 at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa.
At COEX, chain operators are able to take advantage of business-building insights and to create personal connections with leading manufacturers. With opportunities to engage during organized one-on-one meetings, entertaining events or roundtable discussions, COEX offers one-of-a-kind network opportunities.
Co-presenting at this year’s conference will be John Dillon, Cargill Strategic Pricing Leader for its Global Edible Oils and Solutions business unit, and PROS Strategic Consultant Matt Bennett. Their presentation – Managing Menu Prices in the Face of Volatility: How Chain Operators Can Serve Customers More Efficiently – will offer insights into how food chain operators can manage unprecedented volatility, while looking for simpler practices and using dynamic pricing solutions to meet the changing palates of their customers. Dillon and Bennett will also cover how technologies that are available today can help operators in their quest for better, more predictable pricing models that enable them to profitably grow their businesses.
“Participants at IFMA COEX are senior leaders and decision-makers who represent some the country’s largest, most high-profile national and regional chains,” said Chris Jones, PROS Senior Vice President of Sales. “They’re looking for opportunities to profitably serve customers amidst the requirement for new offerings on their menus. We look forward to showcasing how PROS is helping some of the world’s leading food companies shift to a modern commerce strategy.”

Developed by operators for operators, there’s no better opportunity for learning than at IFMA COEX.
