Supermarket Perimeter - April 2022 - 61

TECHNOLOGY
" Now, it's about trying to provide
strict instructions about what
to make, when to make it, and
digesting more information from
their POs and kiosk systems to
make it easier. "
With its software upgrades,
Jera is now able to offer
customers the ability to do more
just-in-time prep of their fresh
ingredients for prepared and
other foods, and to better and
more quickly take information
from their kitchen management
systems (KMS) to create better
prep lists and more easily add
or subtract modifiers and other
ingredient substitutes.
Food industry clients were
getting better at adopting new
technologies before COVID,
Barrett said. Since then, the
process has accelerated
exponentially.
" What's helping is the
willingness of our customers to
integrate their systems and to
be more flexible in searching for
answers to their problems, " he
said. " Technology is being better
received. "
Food producers and their retail
and commissary partners are
using technology more to gain
transparency, he added - into
product costing, checklists, storeside
execution, you name it.
For commissaries, Jera will
soon offer a tablet-based system
for employees that provides realtime
recording of when products
are being made, how long it takes
to make them and other crucial
information.
" It provides a real-time, eventbased
analysis, where events can
be interpreted against the plan to
provide updates on how far along
production is, " Barrett said.
One main advantage of the
system, which Jera expects to
roll out at the end of the second
quarter, is that it's paperless. It's
not only more accurate, it also
saves on huge paper bills, Barrett
said. The initial investment of
about $300 per tablet and $40 for
a tablet cover is well worth it. And
Barrett is currently testing a tablet
cover that can be attached to the
rack a commissary employee is
working on.
DayMark brings
MenuPilot to iPads
MenuPilot, the flagship
application of DayMark Safety
Systems' MenuCommand kitchen
automation platform, is now
available on iOS for iPads.
With the MenuPilot app,
operators can now use their
iPad to organize, monitor, and
modify shelf life, nutritional
facts, allergen information, and
prep data virtually anytime
and anywhere, according to
DayMark.
" The really great news is that
many food service operations
already use iPads in their
kitchens, " said Jill Carte, director
of product development for
DayMark. " The availability of
iOS for iPads will allow the use
of MenuPilot without having to
purchase new tablets. "
Data collected from the
application can be managed on
a monitoring web platform using
the iPad - or using an Android
tablet or PC. Operators have
shown a preference for Apple
iPads due to their easy-to-learn
interface, layers of security to
protect against viruses, and
seamless integration between
hardware and software.
The MenuPilot application,
coupled with streamlined
corporate management of menu
data via the MenuCommand
web portal, reduces dependence
on hardware and increases
emphasis on platform,
according to DayMark. Together,
these tools facilitate the
centralized management and
communication of critical menu
data and training materials to
foodservice operations.
" DayMark also delivers
companion hardware with
the Matt85 and Matt77 direct
thermal label printers, facilitating
on-demand production of shelflife,
food rotation and complex
grab & go product labeling, "
Carte said. " With access from
any internet connection, data
changes can be communicated
immediately to staff anywhere. "
The iOS platform for the
iPad provides real-time training
opportunities to directors and
employees through the cloud.
Training materials such as videos
and recipes can be viewed at any
time from any location.
" What makes it even more
appealing is that the user
experience for iOS is intuitive
enough that there is almost no
learning curve, " Carte said.
A lot of ingredients have been unavailable, so they're
having to substitute new ingredients all the time. And at
least theoretically, you're supposed to update labels every
time there's a substitution. "
