Service Offers Automatic Monitoring and Reporting to Enhance Food Quality
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 21, 2011 – Today, Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), is introducing Food Quality Reports (FQR) as a new service designed to help retailers ensure fresh, high quality food for customers. Part of Emerson’s ProAct® service portfolio, Food Quality Reports automatically captures temperature averages for selected monitoring points such as cases and product probes.
Reports highlighting deviations from the established acceptable limits are posted daily, enabling retailers to quickly identify areas needing attention. The reports also indicate defrost events based on either schedules or actual measured temperatures to provide an accurate understanding of conditions that cause increased case temperatures which impact food quality.
Food Quality Reports addresses many challenges posed by manual monitoring methodologies, such as potential for human error in the consistency and accuracy of recording temperatures. The reporting system averages temperatures each hour and provides a value that reflects a complete sample of conditions over time rather than a narrow snapshot. Additionally, automating the monitoring procedure increases labor efficiencies by enabling store employees to dedicate more time to other aspects of their job.
Food Quality Reporting is the latest addition to Emerson’s portfolio of services offered through its ProAct® Service Center, a state-of-the-art facility staffed 24/7 with trained technicians and facility experts. To request more information on Emerson’s Food Quality Reports service or any of the ProAct service offerings, email RetailSolutionsMarketing@Emerson.com.
