BlogThe Importance of Temperature Monitoring in Supermarkets and Restaurants

Each month, the average American household spends over $600 on food, most of which is fresh and frozen foods from supermarkets, and the rest is purchased out of the home. For this reason, monitoring freezer and refrigerator temperatures in retail food chains is extremely important. Temperature inconsistencies in any of the freezer and refrigerator equipment that stores food in these stores can case foodborne illness, but at the same time it is hard to monitor these units manually with so much else going on within the store. That's where temperature monitoring comes in.

Avoided Waste & Higher Food Cost

Temperature data can be collected everyday, 24 hours a day, and with no interruptions. This allows stores to see their data over time, and know when equipment is slowly starting to fail. Temperature thresholds are set by the customer, and if crossed our system automatically sends an alert to those responsible.

Cut Labor & Resources

Employees no longer have to manually take, input and analyze temperature data from what is sometimes hundreds of units in the supermarket or restaurant. This frees up employees time to do what they were trained to do, while also avoiding human error.
