DayMark launches cloud-based solutions for foodservice industry

US-based food safety systems provider DayMark Safety Systems has unveiled cloud-based and app-driven platforms to automate food labeling for restaurants, retail foodservice and non-commercial kitchens.

US-based food safety systems provider DayMark Safety Systems has unveiled cloud-based and app-driven platforms to automate food labeling for restaurants, retail foodservice and non-commercial kitchens.

The company has developed the new solutions in collaboration with global technology company Sonata Software.

The two platforms, MenuCommand web portal and MenuPilot mobile app, are designed to assist kitchen staff to reduce error-prone manual management of menu data and food labels.

The MenuCommand system helps foodservice operators to upload menu updates which can then be downloaded in their kitchens using the MenuPilot app.

“Through kitchen automation, we’ll be able to build solutions that help our businesses run better, safer, more efficiently and through a common dashboard.”

Sonata has developed the backend solution of MenuCommand on Microsoft’s Azure platform and the MenuPilot app through its Sonata’s Halosys platform.

Leveraging these solutions, foodservice operators can streamline menu updates, shelf life, nutritional facts, allergen information, preparation information, recipes and training information – located in a virtually cloud-based application.

DayMark kitchen automation category manager Jill Carte said: “It’s difficult to ask a prep cook in a fast-paced foodservice environment to consistently recall the correct hold times and shelf life of food items required to create a multitude of changing menu selections.”

DayMark product development and marketing EVP Jeff Gayer said: “We feel that, through kitchen automation, we’ll be able to build solutions that help our businesses run better, safer, more efficiently and through a common dashboard.”

In addition, the company will combine these two solutions with its Matt85 hardware system through bluetooth integration to manage labeling information with access-controlled distribution and audit trails for printing.

Matt85 hardware system contains a direct thermal printer and a customised Android tablet to run the MenuPilot app.

Restaurant operators can also integrate the two solutions with third-party systems such as Nutritics to build and manage recipe data using a database of ingredients.
