All-New HACCP-Compliant AccuSpot™ Temperature Monitoring Solution Set Digitizes Critical Component of Food Safety Management in Restaurants and Foodservice Operations
HAMDEN, Conn., May 21, 2018--TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, announced today the expansion of its restaurant solutions product lineup with the debut of AccuSpot, a new array of temperature monitoring solutions for restaurant and foodservice operators, at the National Restaurant Association ("NRA") Show 2018, May 19-22, 2018 at McCormick Place (Booth #6057) in Chicago, IL. Featuring a pair of new hardware devices – the AccuSpot IR Thermometer and AccuSpot Probe – and a companion app designed for handheld devices, AccuSpot will dramatically enhance HACCP compliance, quality standards and food safety in back-of-house kitchen environments by digitizing complex temperature monitoring functions and leveraging the power of artificial intelligence and neural networks to verify that foodservice workers complete the key steps needed to properly monitor food temperatures throughout kitchen processes.
Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “As we look to further expand our lineup of restaurant management solutions, TransAct’s ongoing interactions with customers across the industry have demonstrated the critical importance of temperature monitoring among the many tasks restaurants and foodservice operators complete to ensure that customer food is safe. Despite its critical importance, many customers today use manual processes to monitor and log food temperature. With the debut of the AccuSpot suite of products, we are again meeting our customers’ ever-evolving needs and bringing to market a state-of-the-art temperature monitoring solution that digitizes this key task by marrying best-of-breed hardware and innovative software. In addition, we are working with customers to ensure that they have a customized solution that fits neatly into their complex workflows. Importantly, the addition of our powerful mobile app ties the solution to the cloud and allows us to leverage the power of artificial intelligence to dramatically improve the accuracy of our solution and ensure that employees complete these critical tasks on time and to the satisfaction of brand quality teams.
“The growing prevalence of the Internet of Things has made it possible for connected and cloud-based solutions like AccuSpot to enter the marketplace and dramatically change the way restaurant and foodservice operators conduct their business every day. As with our growing lineup of AccuDate restaurant terminal solutions including the all-new AccuDate XL2e, AccuSpot represents a new and exciting opportunity for TransAct, one that should allow us to build our recurring revenue base and further expand our software-based solution set over time. We are delighted to work with our customers at NRA Show 2018 in Chicago where we will clearly demonstrate that our team has their ever expanding and ever evolving needs in mind.”
The new AccuSpot IR Thermometer and AccuSpot Probe debuting at NRA Show 2018 in connection with a dedicated companion app that runs on a handheld device are designed to revolutionize temperature monitoring and task completion verification. These simple, HAACP-compliant devices snap on the back of the handheld device and use infrared sensing (for taking the surface temperature of items) or a temperature probe (for taking the internal temperature of items, like meats) to take and log food temperatures throughout the day. The AccuSpot solution also leverages the handheld device’s existing camera to send images to the cloud where food items are identified and to verify that temperatures have been taken properly. The cloud also stores daily activity logs that can be used by restaurant operations teams to monitor brand quality and by local health inspectors who come to restaurant locations to view existing conditions.
