4xi Innovation Partner Unisyn picks up award at SHFM

4xi's newest Innovation Partner, Unisyn, wins the award for "Most Innovative or Forward Thinking Product/Service" from the Society For Hospitality and FoodService Management (SHFM).

This year's SHFM Annual Conference was held in Denver, Colorado, with over 600 industry professionals attending - the biggest turnout in recent memory. The event saw the handover of outgoing President Rob Gebhardt of JLL and the incoming Sharon Eliatamby of World Bank Group.

Each year, innovators and supply partners are invited to exhibit, and each year an award for Best in Show Most Innovative Product or Service, with 2022s winner Unisyn, Your Best Team Everywhere.

Co-founded by industry favorite and legend Andrew Main and entrepreneur Joel Onyshuk, Unisyn is a platform that enables team huddles and drives the most important behaviors that positively impact daily operations across dispersed business locations.

"The beauty of Unisyn is it's focus on one of the most important activities of the day - the team huddle. How leaders and managers can reiterate the key organizational messages and specific actions that drive behaviors and deliver real impact to the business."

As Unisyn describes the value proposition of this groundbreaking tool:

70% of the variance in team engagement is determined solely by the manager (Gallup). Unisyn empowers frontline managers to become frontline leaders, digitally transforming daily huddles and enabling the replication of behaviors of your best managers at every location.

This digital transformation unleashes powerful behavioral metric data, enabling the management by exception to coach managers more effectively and easily recognize great performances.
Unisyn unlocks frontline communication and collaboration and unlocks the potent power of your regular huddles.

Here is to your best team everywhere, and congratulations once again to Unisyn on their well-deserved award.


Unisyn, Inc., the Service Industry solution to unlocking frontline leadership consistency and frontline associate engagement, received the award for "Most Innovative or Forward-Thinking Product/Service" from SHFM. Judges were a panel of operators as well as conference attendees who voted on a number of innovations and solutions, including those promoted by PepsiCo, Coca-Cola North America, Ecolab, Impossible Foods, Keurig Dr. Pepper, Panasonic, Red Bull North America, and many other household names.

Based in Tampa, FL., Unisyn's mission is to "Put your best team everywhere" by empowering your frontline teams to bring your mission to life everywhere and every day. According to Gallup, 70% of the variance in team engagement is determined solely by the manager, and Unisyn is the first and only solution to address this unique, global challenge for Service Industry companies with distributed teams.
