ArrowStream Introduces First-of-its-Kind Technology ChainConnect to Boost Manufacturers’ Revenue Growth
Chicago, Feb. Jan. 1, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ArrowStream, Inc., the leading cloud platform for supply chain smart foodservice (“ArrowStream”), today announced its first manufacturer-centric solution designed to help manufacturing merchants to increase revenue and build partnerships. After years of leading the market with solutions for chain operators and foodservice distributors, ArrowStream introduces ChainConnect to change the way foodservice manufacturers enter into direct contract agreements with multi-unit restaurant chain sales and expand their indirect distributor business.
Today, most US and Canadian foodservice manufacturers participate in ArrowStream’s collaborative applications, which provide visibility into their vast network of 100,000 operator locations and 1,300 distributor locations. With ChainConnect, ArrowStream extends the visibility that has become the gold standard in other industries to manufacturers. ChainConnect represents an essential new platform for manufacturers’ sales and customer teams.
“We’ve always been a customer-first company,” said Nick Hummer, director of product management at ArrowStream. “Our team set out to understand the biggest challenges facing manufacturing. Through countless conversations, we learned that manufacturers don’t fully understand where their products end up. We built ChainConnect with our partners to ensure it was a products with critical needs and provide manufacturers with solutions unmatched by other products on the market.”
ChainConnect is a manufacturer sales enablement solution that provides the latest market data and insights from operators and distributors. Revenue teams, including sales and marketing, can identify unknown buyers to drive revenue and expand distributor and partner relationships. Manufacturers can also easily monitor contract customers’ purchasing patterns and venture revenues.
“ArrowStream’s ChainConnect truly delivers on the promise of putting high-quality, truly meaningful data at your fingertips,” said Jerad Miller, Director of National Accounts at Handgards. “This is an unrivaled tool in terms of visibility across all of our distribution, and it gives our team a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”

Manufacturers using ChainConnect already understand our requirements. It reduces administrative activities such as extracting data and sending data back and forth. It also makes supply suppliers can drive the compliance of their products in our supply chain,” Gary Nash, Director of Purchasing, Sr. Zaxby’s.
