Features: Temperature Check & Electronic Signature
MacromatiX drives operational excellence by prompting users to record fresh and/or frozen food temperature prior to transfer. When a temperature is entered, if it meets acceptable pre-set thresholds that were configured by a brand's Head Office, a transfer can proceed. If food temperatures are out of acceptable range, a visual alert will appear, warning the manager to review the item. They will have the choice to acknowledge and proceed or cancel the transfer of the item.
To ensure improved accountability Macromatix can require a manager to record an electronic signature.
- Enter the temperature of the item/s in the Fresh or Frozen temperature fields (Fig.7) Macromatix will open the appropriate field for temperature data based on the type of item being transferred.
