FreshLoc - A Fresh Look at Temperature and Food Safety Monitoring for Schools

Woodland Hills, CA (PressExposure) June 22, 2009 -- Green Edge Systems presents a fresh look at temperature, food safety and HACCP monitoring for school food services at the School Nutrition Association SNA 2009 annual conference and exhibition, Mandalay Bay Convention Center Las Vegas 30 June - 2 July, 2009, Booth #1122.

On display will be Freshloc's wireless temperature monitoring system and the Temp-Taker handheld HACCP PDA Inspection System.

The systems help improving food safety and increasing efficiency in school food services as targeted by new stimulus money that is provided to school food services thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

School districts with 10 or more schools in their district are encouraged to take advantage of the following special offer: Stimulus temperature monitoring program for School Districts with 10 or more schools in the district - no charge for a temperature monitoring system for the first school in a district (offer valid for 120 days, ask us for the terms and conditions for this offer).

FreshLoc is the market leader in wireless temperature and HACCP monitoring for school food services, food production and delivery, and for hospitals, with over 1,000,000 measurements per day, and growing.

This is what makes FreshLoc the solution that you should select for your refrigeration and food safety monitoring in your schools:

Your data is monitored from a 24/7, high security monitoring center with full back-up every few hours, geographically dispersed. The system is available 24/7 from any location; in the convenience of your home, work, and while on vacation and on the road.

The system requires no IT person for its maintenance, needs no software or servers on site. FreshLoc does it all.

Schools are open less then 180 days per year, and about 9 hours per day. Therefore, for more than 80% of the time, when kitchens are closed, refrigeration problems have to be addressed by an advanced temperature monitoring system that is effectively monitored remotely.

Unlike most of the systems in the market, where you actually need to go to a computer at the school district in order to review problems, acknowledge alerts and stop escalating the alerts, FreshLoc's system is available 24/7 from anywhere. When you get the FreshLoc alert, you are only one click away from a full history of the failed equipment's monitored data, and this is available from anywhere.

FreshLoc provides alerts through e-mails and text messages, as typical in the industry, but can also provide alerts to your home phone, office phone, and any cell phone. There is no need anymore to have an advanced phone to receive alerts and pay for text messages.

With FreshLoc you do not need to wait for temperatures to go out of range as most systems are set for. With FreshLoc we closely monitor the operation of the compressor and refrigeration system and when it stops to operate or malfunctions, we alert you instantaneously, long before the temperatures go out of range.

With FreshLoc , every sensor serves as a back-up device or a data logger, thus ensuring that no measurement is lost. The system continues logging temperatures when the network is down or on power outages. Just put sensors in your trucks or food carts they will be monitored as well.

The same system monitors temperatures, humidity, door openings, dishwasher rinse temperatures, temperature of delivered food on trucks and food carts and temperatures readings while preparing food...

FreshLoc has the most advanced reporting system in the industry. You can schedule any report automatically and get it daily, weekly, monthly or at any other interval or whenever needed from the systems. It can show readings every hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, etc. The report will provide you with full details of alerts, corrective actions and statistical data of problems occurred during the reporting period.

Temperatures and door readings are continuously recorded, eliminating false alarms. No more false alerts on door openings that are based on random readings.

An advanced dashboard allows you to monitor all or any part of the entire district from a single, easily operated screen. The dashboard can be organized by location, type of equipment or both.

The FreshLoc system takes care of food safety, energy efficiency and predictive and preventive maintenance of your food services. With efficiency monitoring, FreshLoc can predict impending failure and recommend maintenance to extend the time before the next problem.

The Temp-Taker HACCP Handheld PDA Inspection Systems is a winner of Foodservice Equipment Reports' 11th Annual Smallwares Competition. The event took place in August 2008 at FER's headquarters in Skokie, Ill.


From the Foodservice Equipment Report: "The Temp-Taker HACCP Food Safety Solution, is a comprehensive system that links to your computer to automatically log and record temperature data. You can use Temp-Taker to automate all areas of your HACCP menu plan. The unit can also track the temperatures of product that's cooking, cooling or being reheated. If a temperature is too high or too low, the unit offers "Action Steps" that help workers get the temperatures back into the safe zone. The data downloads to your computer into a secure database, and you can print or e-mail HACCP food safety reports and graphs"
