Foodservice equipment manufacturer Alto-Shaam has launched ChefLinc, a cloud-based, remote oven management system.
ChefLinc provides foodservice operators control of their equipment, menus and business from wherever they are, said to increase efficiency and consistency across multiple locations.
The system is equipped with an intuitive dashboard that allows operators to create, manage and distribute recipes to ovens through the cloud.
Alto-Shaam’s senior director of product management Jeff McMahon said: “One of the biggest challenges that all operators now face is how to ensure the highest consistency and quality throughout their restaurants and foodservice operations.”
Pre-programmed recipes can be pushed to a single oven or designated group of ovens from a centralised recipe library. Operators can utilise ChefLinc to execute limited time offers (LTOs), regional menu variations and daypart menu variety.
McMahon added: “ChefLinc puts operators in total control of their equipment from anywhere they are, with intuitive recipe management and data driven insights that enable streamlined processes and greater consistency.”
The dashboard provides real-time connectivity status and the cooking state for each oven, as well as highlighting any service alerts. The ability to access real-time, detailed service diagnostics should enable operators to minimise oven downtime.
ChefLinc is currently available to use with Alto-Shaam’s Vector H Series Multi-Cook Ovens and will soon be expanded to other products.
