CM Systems, LLC, known for its industry-leading ComplianceMate temperature-tracking and food safety technology, is proud to have been selected as a 2019 Kitchen Innovations® (KI) Award recipient. The KI Awards from the National Restaurant Association Show define the gold standard of foodservice equipment innovations, honoring equipment that increases efficiency and productivity.
“Forward-thinking and cutting-edge, this is the equipment that generates industry growth,” says Scott Redler, COO and co-founder of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and Co-Chair for the 2019 National Restaurant Association Show.
Selected by an independent panel of judges comprised of industry leaders and internationally recognized food facility consultants, multi-unit executives, and design experts for the award, the ComplianceMate Smart Kitchens system combines a digital checklist with wireless temperature sensors based on the state-of-the-art LoRa communication protocol. Lower-cost LoRa outperforms Bluetooth when using rugged equipment like stainless steel deep freezers, as its 915 MHz radio signals can successfully penetrate the rugged materials present in a commercial kitchen with no remediation required. Simultaneously, the smart digital checklist enables users to complete more checklist items in less time, while providing cloud-based, above-unit visibility to identify trends across multiple locations.
Altogether, the Sensor Smart Kitchens system enables users to continuously monitor and record temperatures inside any cold holding units or other temperature-controlled equipment, while also adhering to HACCP and brand requirements. The system generates user alerts automatically any time temperatures go out of specification, so that users can prevent food waste and reduce the risk of food-borne illnesses.
“Our team is incredibly proud to have been selected for Kitchen Innovations award,” says Steve Getraer, President of CM Systems. “It’s thanks to the vision and hard work of our employees and development partners like Laird Technologies that our Sensor Smart Kitchens system has been so successful at advancing food safety for our customers and industry.”
ComplianceMate food safety solutions are already working at thousands of restaurant locations across the US, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East with a rapidly growing install base.
ComplianceMate will join the other award recipients and product honorees in a showcase in the interactive Kitchen Innovations Showroom at the 2019 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®, to be held May 18-21, 2019, in Chicago at McCormick Place. Visit booths 9422 and 2440 for an opportunity to see the ComplianceMate Sensor Smart Kitchens first-hand.
