The rate of technological innovation in our world is astounding and it seems like every second news headline these days is covering such stories.
In the restaurant industry, this ingenuity and innovation have been limited to rather short spurts in comparison. Such examples include multi-tool thermometers and wireless data loggers. They have certainly had an advantageous impact on the restaurants that have adopted these technologies, but are still only a small piece in the puzzle when it comes to fully embracing technological innovation in the restaurant sector.
The Testo Saveris Restaurant Solution aims to change that.
Hallmarks of Innovation
By now you’ll have come across the phrase “big data”. Companies in finance, manufacturing, and every sector in-between are using metrics to analyse how they can improve their business while simultaneously avoiding risks. This is done by integrating various parts of operations on a central platform to facilitate automated reporting.
The restaurant industry shares many similarities to these fields - kitchens are able to use digital tools to ensure accuracy when it comes to analysing the quality of foods and products. It also can be used to stay compliant with local food codes. But there have not been many solutions geared towards combining this data to create powerful insights.
Taking the Next Step in Food Safety
Many restaurants still use pen and paper to document their quality management process. This antiquated method presents a slew of challenges. The first challenge is that employees spend more time than is necessary reviewing limit values because the process simply is conducive to inefficiency.
Second, the lack of communication between the tool (a food thermometer in this instance) and a central database that can collect this data leaves management without the ability to analyse past performances or make adjustments on the fly to optimise their processes.
The Testo Saveris Restaurant Solution provides a streamlined digital ecosystem for quality management. The system is built around software that enables restaurants to digitize their handbook and deliver them through a tablet. This is used to guide kitchen staff through food safety procedures, storing limit values along the way. The Testo Saveris Restaurant Solution accomplishes this through a multifunction thermometer that can transmit data to the system.
To add to this, quality management administrators can quickly update the digital handbook across multiple locations should it be required. The system can also provide immediate feedback to chefs that have reached a limit value warning, allowing them to easily remedy the situation.
The restaurant industry isn’t waiting for technological innovation to reserve a table - the Testo Saveris Restaurant Solution is already being adopted.
