The acquisition of Arby's Restaurant Group in early July by the Roark Capital Group required the chain's newly formed technology team to establish a computing environment for all technology services that support the brand.
After a detailed search, Arby's selected BIAS Corporation, a Platinum level Oracle hardware, software and service provider headquartered in Atlanta, as its partner to implement all of the needed Oracle applications and infrastructure.
In addition, Arby's selected BIAS as its long-term partner to provide EBS application managed services and support. Arby's and BIAS successfully launched their standalone Oracle EBS environment on Nov. 21, 2011.
"Strategically, my goal was to establish an IT department that is primarily focused on building our brand, enhancing our restaurant operations and assisting our franchisees with their profitability," said John Lukas, CIO and vice president of Arby's Restaurant Group Inc. "Without BIAS as our partner in the EBS space, I would have had to re-focus a portion of my limited IT resources to the back office areas BIAS manages for us. With BIAS as our partner, my team can stay laser focused on brand enhancing strategies."
