    Highlights of the FreshLoc Temperature Monitoring System:

    * Web based temperature monitoring system available from everywhere; from within the school district, from home and from the road. The data is monitored from a 24/7, high security monitoring center with full back-up every few hours, geographically dispersed. The system is available 24/7 from any location; in the convenience of the home, work, and while on vacation and on the road.

    * All the important data is constantly automatically updated and presented on the dashboard, and in particular, any active alert and information that needs immediate attention is displayed and can be review in detail through a single click. This data is available 24/7 from any location, in the convenience of the home, work, and while on vacation and on the road.

    * Unlike most systems in the market, requiring a user to go to a computer at the campus in order to review problems, acknowledge alerts and stop escalating alerts, FreshLoc's system is available 24/7 from any Internet connection with no need to have a PC at the monitored kitchen.

    * The sensors read temperatures every 2 minutes, so if the delay time before generating alerts when temperatures get out of range is set to 40 minutes, alerts are generated only after more than 20 consecutive out of range temperature readings rather than after just two or three consecutive out of range temperature readings done by most systems in the market that read temperatures every 15 minutes - avoiding false alerts that are common with these systems.

    * With FreshLoc, sensors serve as back-up devices and log temperature data for at least 83 hours, thus ensuring that no temperature measurement is lost. The system continues logging temperatures when the network is down or on power outages.

    * In order to acknowledge an alert or update its status - one simply replies to the received alert's text message. No need to travel to the office or even log into the system to acknowledge an alert or update its status.

    * The FreshLoc system provides the possibility to program alerts recipients and delay times for alerts per day of the week and hour of day for each sensor separately, per group of sensors or all sensors.

    * FreshLoc has the most advanced reporting system in the industry. One can schedule any report automatically and receive it daily, weekly, monthly or at any other interval. It can show readings every hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, etc.

    * The FreshLoc system constantly analyzes how often equipment malfunctions, and provides alerts with suggestions for preventive maintenance for equipment that is about to fail.

    About the Sure Check hand held PDA Inspection System:

    PAR Tech's Sure Check HACCP PDA Inspection Systems is designed to take the effort and risk out of food quality monitoring.

    Food borne illness puts students and school food services at risk.

    While school food services have Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) programs, most are ineffective and time-consuming. Sure Check is a powerful Web-based tool for managing HACCP and inspection programs for large food services. Combining the best technology in PDAs (handheld computers), temperature data acquisition, and Web-based software, Sure Check™ automates the monitoring of quality risk factors while dramatically lowering the potential for human error.

    Critical information is centralized through web-based reporting, audit trails, and checklist-management tools. Corrective actions are provided when unsafe conditions are detected.


    • Inputs temperature probe data directly into the PDA
    • Ensures checkpoints are actually visited
    • Prompts with corrective actions whenever a critical limit is exceeded
    • Manages multi-step processes such as cooling
    • Makes reports instantly available via Web-browser
    • Ensure critical food handling procedures are followed via automated checklists, action prompts, and audit trails
    • Streamline regulatory reporting with paperless data capture
    • Stay on top of the latest safety procedures with centralized configuration and automatic change distribution
    • Improve awareness of food safety with instant alerts and enterprise reports
    • Eliminates the need to buy expensive servers, as the solution is completely hosted
    • Simplify support with centralized configuration tool and easy-to-use hardware/and software
    • Deploys easily with Web-based architecture
