January 15, 2012 – ROAMWORKS COLD STORAGE AND REEFER MONITORING SOLUTION SET TO ENHANCE THE FOOD INDUSTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST
DUBAI, UAE – Jan. 15, 2012 – The frozen/chilled food industry plays an important role in feeding nations. Transporting and storing frozen/chilled food products is both capital intensive and constantly under threat by the elements; in the Middle East, usually from extremely high temperatures. As a result of this, health departments across the Middle East have put in place varying regulatory regimes to ensure food quality and safety standards are in place in order to protect their citizens. Frozen/chilled food industry players are also actively trying to monitor and maintain quality standards for their products.
While health departments perform various health inspections at food outlets, storage and logistics hubs, it is very challenging for operators to keep a minute by minute tab on the quality of the food they sell or transport due to the technical complexities involved. The food supply chain goes through several processes which start from the manufacturing/production, transportation, storage, until it reaches the end consumer via sales outlets. ROAMWORKS, after meticulous research and development, have developed with a solution to provide updated cold storage and reefer monitoring throughout this supply chain. This provides the operators with full control of all their temperature-sensitive products.
Our cold storage and reefer monitoring solution combines the latest hardware terminals powered by the ROAM application to provide flexibility, user-friendliness and an all-in-one solution for the food industry in the Middle East and beyond. Now, operations/logistics managers can sit back and relax while ROAM keeps an eye on their temperature-sensitive assets. With automatic alarm notification via different communications portals, the operator is notified instantly whenever the temperature fluctuates beyond the allowed threshold. Also, the solution is equipped with automation and control features to execute an action or procedure in case of temperature fluctuation. The action could range from switching on a backup freezer to sounding a buzzer alarm to notify staff on duty, or as specified by the operator.
The highlight of the cold storage and reefer monitoring solution is that it not only saves our clients millions of dollars in potential loss of revenue due to food spoilage or food quality loss, but also keeps the operation of the operator up to international standard of food storage and transportation. ROAMWORKS’ cold storage and reefer monitoring provides user-friendly data recording and analysis in form of charts, graphs that are displayed in an easy to understand GUI. The solution is also equipped with automated report generation features that send periodic reports to the operators’ management or the warehouse/logistics manager to ensure no data or information is unaccounted for. Another key feature of the solution is the accuracy of the data provided to enable quality analysis at all times. The system not only monitors stationary temperature-sensitive products, but also monitors temperature-sensitive products in transit from one place to another.
