EVOLUTION OF TECHNOLOGY IN REFRIGERATYION TEMPERATURE MONITORING
Temperature Measurement, Recording and Data Storage
Manual entry utilizing staff & management time costs approximately $600 - $800 per year, per refrigerator or freezer. Managers continue to report challenges with maintaining staff compliance and accuracy. Archiving, storage and retrieval of data is cumbersome, time consuming and costly. The hard copy of temperature logs take up storage space, and can be inadvertently damaged or misplaced.
Sensors provide accurate and granular data which is stored in the cloud for compliant, reliable and cost-effective retrieval, analysis and reporting providing significant cost savings.
