REAL-TIME MONITORING SOLUTIONS FOR THE FOODSERVICE INDUSTRY

We supply affordable technology that can remotely monitor any type of kitchen equipment in real time.

 

We specialise in monitoring all parts of high volume drinks dispensing systems – energy consumption, poured drink temperatures, mains water flow & pressures, water filter performance, filter replacement schedules - all of which can be used to monitor quality, deliver major cost-savings & introduce a truly predictive servicing process. 

 

We started off by proving to the Food Standards Agency that temperature sensors in fridges & freezers were more reliable & cheaper than human checks done as part of any HACCP regime, so we have extensive experience in the accurate temperature & power monitoring of fridges, freezers, vendors & chillers.

 

We’re still the only company ever to have subjected their sensors to this level of scrutiny.

 ​

We have some very big customers, but we're small & flexible. If you have problem that you need help with, we’re very happy to help you create a solution.

 

Cost savings & peace of mind

Do you really need it? Like most new technology, you have the right to be sceptical about what it can do & the savings it can deliver. But we’d ask you to consider one thing - Coca-Cola, McDonald’s & Ben&Jerry’s have adopted it after rigorous, long-term testing, so we've done the due diligence.

 

Real time monitoring allows all of our customers to keep a close eye on the performance of their key equipment without having to make unnecessary visits to their sites. Not only is that useful in an uncertain trading environment, it delivers a substantial positive & ongoing environmental benefit through a measurable reduction in the number of engineering visits, vehicle emissions etc.

“The Telemetry system has paid for itself a number of times over & the staff love its simplicity.
It’s a no-brainer for us.”

The Internet of Things (IoT) & You

There’s been a lot written about the IoT, but at its most basic, it’s about connecting ‘dumb’ things, like fridges, to the internet. In truth, that’s only really useful if you’re going to use the data it produces.

Our data collection is pretty clever, but it’s what you do with the data that matters. We specialise in producing simple, actionable reports that highlight the issues that your data throws up.

Here are a few examples of what we do:

Our FSA
Feasibility Study

There are a number of sensors on the market, but only ours have been through the rigour of a Food Standards Agency Feasibility Study. The FSA are the harshest critic out there, so under their scrutiny we tested our sensors in various restaurant & Street Food locations across 3 different Local Authorities and gave the FSA and the local Food Safety Officers access to all of the data. You can read the full study here but the FSA are happy that we have:

 

"..demonstrated the value of using a digital system as an alternative to paper based systems, for the purposes of regulated assurance of food safety."

How does it work?

1

You brief us on items to be monitored, the performance parameters and how often the data is required. 

2

The sensors monitor every few seconds and transmit data at your chosen intervals via the base station. No host WiFi is needed. 

3

The data is sent via a secure cloud server to a central server to which only you have access.

4

The data is displayed via a simple custom dashboard - or sent directly just to your data management system. Specific reports and alerts can be created for different business functions.

 

Our sensors & portal

Our battery-powered LoRaWAN sensors send their data securely to either a SIM-based or WiFi/LAN connected gateway. The sensors can be programmed to transmit temperature, power or flow data as often as you need, as often as once a minute. 

Our data portal is also very simple. Your data is available in graph format or you can download it in raw format. Your estate can be seen on a site by site basis, or collectively.

Temperature sensors in fridges & freezers require no wiring at all. Our power & water sensors require a bit more installation, but our Coca-Cola approved installers (SDMS) have years of expertise in this area. The transmission technology & sensors are exactly the same though.

The Internet of Things can be complicated.

This isn't, but if you have any questions, we're always happy to chat .
