Global Restaurant Chain Saved £1.25M in Food Stock In Three Days with IoT Sensors
Disruptive Technologies tiny sensors coupled with Infogrid's AI platform saved money and food during the UK's first Covid-19 lockdown when nobody else could be there.
Within three days, the chain implemented across all UK sites. The system automatically alerts regional managers when freezers malfunction or their temperature range falls outside of health and safety guidelines so that they can move food to a functioning unit. Not only has real-time data from IoT sensors helped reduce food waste but also has helped the restaurant to perform preventative maintenance. So far, the sensors have identified eight freezers that were not operating within the expected parameters and found unusual temperature incidents in five others. Thanks to the rapid installation and results, measures were taken immediately and both food and money were saved.
"Crisis averted thanks to Infogrid. I was so impressed at the speed and ease at which we were able to install sensors across every site and start collecting data. Not only did it save £1.25m of food stock, but it also helped us to manage our sites remotely during the lockdown, and automatically alerted us about multiple faults with our freezers." - Safety and Risk Manager, Global Restaurant Chain.
"The Infogrid cold storage solution helps restaurants and stores of all sizes securely monitor their food stock remotely," said Bengt Johannes Lundberg, CEO of Disruptive Technologies. "Our easy-to-use, best in class sensors provide immediate benefits in these turbulent times. Sustainability is a core value of DT and being able to fight food waste and save the end customer money is fantastic! "
