Logile Food Safety Goes Beyond the Status Quo to Help Retailers Protect Their Customers and Brand While Managing Critical Components of Effective Food Safety Programs
Logile, Inc. announced the immediate availability of its next-generation Logile Food Safety solution, featured in Logile’s Booth 3255 at the National Retail Federation NRF 2020 conference and expo. Moving beyond the standard temperature monitoring, probing and logging data of traditional systems, Logile Food Safety alerts and proactively guides store associates to use retailer best practices and any necessary corrective actions to maintain food safety programs. The solution is applicable to all retail segments with fresh food preparation and handling.
The all-mobile solution delivers the functionality, tracking and transparency retailers need to navigate food safety with confidence and ease—all from a single solution. The solution automates and streamlines documentation, communication, task management, paperless logs, checks and alerts.
Ultimately, retailers are able to properly handle, prepare and store food; systematically implement Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs; and prevent foodborne illness.
Logile worked with retailers to address important food safety components, including food temperature monitoring and audit practices, to deliver an extensive solution for food safety program implementation. The full Logile Food Safety solution has been beta deployed to a large regional supermarket chain of approximately 100 stores with significant food offerings and industry-leading food safety practices.
Logile Food Safety brings solution-driven guidance and automated support for the following components of an effective food safety program:
- Food safety culture: Associate training and hygiene, clear standards, food safety awareness.
- Food production: Cooking and chilling, critical control points, product quality and consistency.
- Food handling on the sales floor: Hot holding, cold holding, critical control points.
- Sanitation and cleaning: Work areas, coolers and cases, production equipment.
The solution automates retail food safety practices and integrates them into department operations. Food safety experts are freed up to focus on program management and addressing stores with greater needs and risks.
Logile Food Safety builds the tasks and processes retail teams use to implement food safety, cleaning and sanitation practices in their operational routines. With the data captured from system interaction, it provides near real-time program oversight and management.
The solution scorecards performance for each store and department, provides visibility into compliance of stores following tasks and routines, and presents critical control point details. Dashboard visibility into KPIs and summarized performance data help manage effective program compliance and targeting resources where they are most needed.
