OpSense and Machfu have entered a technology partnership to provide an application and a connectivity solution for foodservice operations monitoring.

Machfu is an industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) innovator and OpSense is a real-time continuous monitoring software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform.

The strategic collaboration, through an improved technology platform, aims to provide a solution to improve food safety, manage regulatory compliance, and reduce cost of labour.

OpSense CEO Stu Gavurin said: “Machfu is known for their robust platform that is served in the gateway appliance.

“The partnership provides the right combination of infrastructure for our clients and a single point of management and control as we deploy OpSense across many locations. I see this partnership as critical to the scalability and growth of OpSense and ultimately its longer term value to our clients.”

Lebanese-American restaurant and bakery chain Seasoned Brands has already selected OpSense with Machfu to supervise environmental conditions in their bakery and restaurants.

OpSense provides insights by bringing together real-time continuous monitoring with task management checklists, customisable alerts, and enterprise reports.

The insights can then be easily implemented into actions, thus simplifying food safety compliance for firms.

Machfu CEO Prakash Chakravarthi said: “Our devices are engineered for machines like a smart phone. We provide connectivity from the full spectrum of physical and wireless interfaces, including fibre, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, and LoRa.

“Our architecture supports edge computing and protocol translation while also supporting OpSense’s cloud-based platform allowing for sophisticated features including machine learning on-board. Our collaboration with OpSense delivers a powerful vertical industry solution.”
