Quality Production Manager
Ensure food is always hot, fresh and available.
The simple fact: You sell more when your products are always hot, fresh and available. Quality Product Manager (QPM) guides employees to improve efficiency, ensuring 100% product availability, while increasing transactions and sales.
QPM monitors real-time sales, historical data and hold times to determine what, when and how much to cook, and when to discard expired product.
Sell them while they’re hot.
- Increase transaction size and reduce dissatisfaction
- Monitor product batch and hold times
- Advise when food should no longer be sold
- Provide a freshness measure by product and by shift
- Reduce waste, lower overhead costs and drive efficiency
Product availability is the #1 factor in increasing sales.
Food Safety Manager
FSM Sensor enables single and multi-unit location managers to remotely monitor temperature and humidity in critical spaces, including coolers, freezers and food storage areas. When a sensor detects an out-of-range reading, an alert is sent via text or email 24/7/365 to registered recipients, who can take immediate action to mitigate the risks associated with food spoilage.
FSM Sensor includes a gateway and a series of IoT sensors that can be placed anywhere monitoring is required. The system uses LoRaWAN networking, which provides long-range connectivity and extended sensor battery life. Relevant data is delivered via the cloud to the FSM Sensor dashboard, which is accessible on a cell phone, handheld device or personal computer.
Keep track of food temperatures everywhere from anywhere.
- Ensure that food is maintained at correct temperatures
- Eliminate manual recording
- Know if there is equipment failure before it makes food unsafe
- Save money by not having to throw away unsafe food
Set Point Manager
Monitor and control your recipes and configurations from anywhere.
In the past, your valuable, proprietary recipes and configurations were managed and controlled on site. Save time, energy and money using Set Point Manager (SPM) anywhere at any time. By accessing recipes and set points from a single source in the cloud, SPM enhances food safety, ensures compliance, provides exceptional auditing and record keeping and reduces the cost of LTO deployments.
With SPM, you can monitor recipes and validate that every site is producing product based on exact standards. Adjust and add new recipes instantly in any number of locations for faster, more consistent product rollouts.
