Food preparation and presentation equipment specialist, Fri-Jado, has announced a new partnership with foodservice equipment software provider, Specifi. The deal will see the company’s display equipment rolled out across the platform over the coming months.
Kick-starting the rollout, the Fri-Jado Modular Convenience Counter (MCC) range was the first to be added to the platform. Later this month, the company’s newest series, the Multi-Deck Display (MDD) will be added before the rest of the portfolio is then uploaded.
Content creation, design, quoting and project management platform Specifi has partnered with more than 300 foodservice equipment manufacturers and features more than 500,000 products. Encompassing CAD drawings, BIM files, catalogues and price lists, Specifi’s suite of software programmes aims to offer a one-stop solution to those throughout the sector.
Being the first time that Fri-Jado has partnered with the Specifi team, the move reinforces the brand’s commitment to supporting dealers, distributors, design houses, specifiers, consultants and project managers throughout the foodservice sector.
On the launch of the MCC range onto the Specifi Studio platform, Gary Thacker, director of national accounts at Fri-Jado UK commented: “We are delighted to be working with Specifi to ensure the Fri-Jado equipment portfolio is accessible and available to all.
“Working with Nic and the team, we have been able to create accurate 2D CAD, 3D CAD and Revit libraries of our products, starting with the MCC units – the most popular products in our range. Moving forward, we will be adding the innovative new MDD cabinets next, before rolling out the rest of Fri-Jado’s equipment throughout 2022.”
He added: “We must ensure we’re supporting our customers wherever possible. This partnership means that our equipment is even more accessible than ever before.”
On working with Fri-Jado, Nic Banner, VP of sales at Specifi said: “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Fri-Jado, not just in the UK but around the world. The company’s reputation for manufacturing and supplying quality display equipment is unrivalled and innovation is at the very heart of their business.
“We’ve started by rolling out the company’s most popular models and will continue to add to this over the coming months. Ultimately, it’s with the support of companies such as Fri-Jado that means we can get updated product information into the hands of dealers, consultants and designers – just when they need it the most.”
