Elektron Tech Unveils New "Checkit" Food Safety Solution

Xively, a subsidiary of LogMeIn and creator of the first public cloud platform for the commercial Internet of Things, announced that Elektron Technology has unveiled its next-generation Checkit food safety solution powered by Xively Cloud Services to enable real-time, remote monitoring of food storage and preparation areas. The new solution from Elektron will make it easier for multi-site restaurants, supermarkets, hotels and other businesses to enforce process compliance and reduce the cost of food safety management.

Checkit is a paperless system that uses smart wireless sensors and hand-held units to monitor and record the temperature, humidity and door status of cold storage, hot holding and food preparation areas, as well as ensure hygiene checks have been completed.

"We wanted to connect Checkit to the Internet of Things so that businesses have instant visibility into food safety status and processes across all their sites from anywhere. Xively provided exactly what we needed to quickly develop this solution: a proven and highly scalable cloud infrastructure with robust storage, analytics and security, plus the ability to easily interface with other data and enterprise systems such as Salesforce.com," said David Davies, Group Head of Instrumentation, Monitoring & Control at Elektron Technology said in the release. 

"Elektron's new solution exemplifies what is possible when enterprises develop connected commercial offerings that generate the intelligence needed to enhance customer relationships and boost revenue," said Mario Finocchiaro, Director of Business Development, Xively. To read more, click HERE.
