Envysion Inc., a provider of managed video as a service (MVaaS), announced it was selected by Einstein Noah Restaurant Group Inc. as the exclusive video services provider for its company-owned restaurants. Envysion will deploy its Envysion Insight MVaaS offering to approximately 425 of Einstein Noah Restaurant Group’s locations by the end of Q1 of 2010.

“After reviewing other advanced video alternatives, we found Envysion not only demonstrated an excellent return on investment but also provided unparalleled scalability and ease of use,” says Mike Froelich, senior director of audit services of Einstein Noah Restaurant Group. “With Envysion, we have rapidly expanded the use of video in our business, migrating from a handful of video users to equipping our company-owned stores with a powerful business tool for improving operations, customer experience, and store level profitability.”

With Envysion’s managed video service, an operator can view live and recorded video through a simple Web interface and provide an unfiltered view of actual operations and the customer experience. Envysion connects video to point-of-sale and creates actionable reports and alerting so a store manager can reduce exceptions, such as employee theft, and quickly improve their bottom line. With minimal additional administrative overhead, a customer can add new services, new users, and share video through Envysion’s service.

“We are excited to partner with Einstein Noah Restaurant Group as their video services provider,” says Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion. “Einstein’s commitment to continually improving operations and profitability fits perfectly with the powerful business insight our services deliver. By putting easy to use video in the hands of their entire enterprise, we can dramatically increase the impact they have on their business.”
