At CLEARVIEW, we believe that companies are like living organisms in that they need to constantly grow and evolve in order to thrive. The last year proved to be a year of profound and exciting change for CLEARVIEW and we are continuing to evolve as we find new and better ways to serve our customers. Whether you are a long-time customer, a new customer, or even a potential customer, you might be interested in learning more about what today’s CLEARVIEW can do for you.

Who we are 

CLEARVIEW is a fully integrated, cloud-based Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) back-office solution company with a track record dating back more than 20 years. During this period, our easy-to-use and adaptable platform has helped such industry giants as McDonald’s, Tim Horton’s, Wendy’s, A&W, and Dairy Queen streamline production, trim labor expenses and reduce food waste losses.

CLEARVIEW’s roots trace back to its founding in 2000 when it started with Windows 95 and a webserver to write an initial web-based application to make the management of multiple quick-service restaurants easier. From those humble beginnings, CLEARVIEW has grown into a global leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) field with more than 10,000 stores within the quick-service industry’s biggest brands. In 2015 CLEARVIEW became part of the Panasonic family of companies which gives us amazing resources to draw from as we continue our shared journey.

Our Values and Mission 

While our industry may be technology based, our primary focus is people and what they need from our products to improve their daily work experience. CLEARVIEW President and CEO Michael Lavigne stresses the importance of how improving the work lives of our customers is central to everything we do.

“Our core purpose is to simplify the complexities of the quick-service business. Our technology puts information and analytics at our customer’s fingertips so they can make better business decisions as a result,” he said. “That’s why we will continue to work directly with all of our customers to make sure we align our product roadmap and our vision with current customer needs as well as where the industry is going.”

Since taking the helm of CLEARVIEW in late 2018, Lavigne has led the company through a transition of core focus from being product driven to more market driven. “We are obsessed with our customers’ success which means being even more service and customer oriented,” he said.
