SmartProbe

SmartProbe is a Bluetooth temperature probe designed to enable fast food outlets conform to food safety standards.

The problem

All food outlets must ensure that food is kept at the correct temperature. To do this they check and record temperatures regularly.

This can become time consuming when all recording is done manually.

  • Temperature checks can be inconsistently performed.
  • Staff adherence to procedures can be poor - tasks may be skipped.
  • No clear record keeping to show that checks have been completed correctly.
  • Poor compliance puts customers, the brand and the business at risk.
  • Paper records can be lost.
