Digital Transformation of Restaurants and Hospitality Facilities

The digitization of tasks supported by wireless sensors and low-power wide-area networkss is a cost-saver, increases daily productivity, and provides more visibility and transparency for restaurants and hospitality industry suppliers. Highly scalable and secure networks, like those deployed by Senet, can be built in private or public configurations and support a massive number of sensors. And sensors are now available to monitor and track just about any environmental condition using the same standards-based network.

Food Safety – Wireless sensors generate real-time insights into food temperature, reducing spoilage and automating time consuming daily tasks.

Asset/Inventory Management – Using wireless sensors to track food service assets used by restaurants and hospitality industry suppliers makes it easy to locate items and equipment in transit, in kitchen environments, and across both indoor and outdoor locations.

Infrastructure & Environmental Monitoring – Monitor utility services, environmental conditions (air quality, CO2, VOCs, etc.) and physical state (door/window open and close) to provide a safe working environment.

Customer Satisfaction – Ensure consistency and safety of food preparation, reduce wait times, and build customer loyalty.

By using our product suite, supported by Senet’s LoRaWAN network, several major U.S. based restaurant chains have been able to improve food safety procedures, reducing daily temperature checks by 30 minutes to an hour and saving tens of thousands of dollars of inventory
