Product News Oct 23, 2018
Checkit, the leading provider of Real-Time Operations Management and Food Safety solutions, announces the launch of its US operations.
Checkit’s technology provides a proven way to address the needs of organizations to ensure that the work of staff is performed consistently, easily and to a high standard. It achieves this by creating intuitive, easy to use mobile applications to replace traditional pen and paper checklists, and by using Internet of Things sensors to replace routine monitoring.
Checkit allows businesses to build solutions rapidly, with no software coding or complex IT projects. It gives managers unprecedented insights out of the box, using operational KPIs and analytics derived from the millions of data points it continually gathers.
Checkit has established a base of clients with global businesses including Compass, Sodexo and the Merlin Group, as well as working with leading UK businesses such as John Lewis Partnership and Center Parcs. With its US operation up and running, its aim will be to bring this experience to food service chains, hotels and contract catering and soft FM, with a focus on helping them to improve
• Revenue – by more consistently delivering intended service experience & freeing up time to focus on customers
• Productivity – by automating repetitive checks and the streamlining of front-line work & improving management efficiency
• Risk – from improved compliance, enforcement and visibility
Checkit USA will operate out of a sales and service base in Santa Fe Springs, California, and will have access to the infrastructure and resources of its corporate parent, Elektron Technology plc, which has a well-established US operation.
According to German Casillas, Vice President of Americas: “We see great potential in the United States market. There is a clear need, with many operations still poorly served by unsuitable or paper-based operational systems. We estimate that US food service market alone has the potential to develop to be worth over $1 billion annually as technology adoption grows.”
