FINDING A PROVEN AND RELIABLE SOLUTION TOGETHER
Lobster Place has a wholesale business that serves customers in the restaurant and hospitality industries from a 30,000-square-foot facility in the Bronx. About six years ago, the retail side of the business renovated its Chelsea Market storefront in downtown Manhattan. Project engineers undersized the HVAC system, which resulted in managers and team members checking thermometers regularly.
Based on a referral from the wholesale business, Lobster Place installed Cooltrax sensors in HVAC ducts at the storefront. Data insights identied problem areas to update the volume of the HVAC system, and the sensors placed in storage units immediately alert managers and employees at the counters via a shared email address if any temperatures fall out of range.
In addition, the company uses the technology to monitor ambient temperatures at its Chelsea Market restaurant to alert if conditions get too warm or cool for customers. Lobster Place likes to keep its doors open when the weather is nice.
IMMEDIATE RESULTS LEADING TO BETTER OUTCOMES
By using the Cooltrax Fresh InStore system, the owners and manager of Lobster Place were able to automate their food safety compliance, remove manual processes and have peace of mind knowing that any exceptions are immediately detected and acted upon to ensure food safety and prevent loss. Reports can be run for any date range on temperatures for any storage unit. If there was a spike, the record shows what was done to resolve the problem and provides an audit trail for federal and state agencies.
