Foodservice monitoring system manufacturer, Monika, has introduced TaskMinder, which monitors the routine tasks of a kitchen.
Recording essential functions such as cleaning, maintenance, stock rotation and temperature probing, TaskMinder allows operators to carry out regular duties in a paperless format.
Capable of omitting audible and visual reminders and alerts at pre-set intervals, the system records completion data including time, location and the individual responsible, to provide fully traceable, accurate logs.
Data records can be downloaded to provide fully compliant HACCP reports, as well as serving to protect a business from public liability claims.
With the option to log data and results onto a cloud based computer dashboard, business managers can regularly check task completion data and drill down to identify the efficiency and accuracies of individuals within their team.
Optimised for multi-site businesses and large chains, the TaskMinder system allows regional management and head office teams to view results by area, by outlet or by individual between two predefined dates.
Monika’s MD, Simon Frost, commented: “Food safety and hygiene is paramount within any catering business and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly; this doesn’t mean to say it needs to be stressful however.
“By using the latest technology, caterers can deliver ongoing efficiencies, saving time, paper, stock and ultimately money when it comes to undertaking essential routine tasks.”
