2. Instant visibility over your facilities

There are many steps in the food preparation process that can cause food to become dangerous. Before the food even reaches the restaurant to be prepared, the harm can already be done. Every food business has incoming goods and you can’t make a good product from bad ingredients. Performing regular inspections gives you valuable data into your operations. By visualising the data, staff can easily analyze what’s good, what’s bad, and can focus on constant improvements.
