Squadle has updated its Digital Checklists to include improved Bluetooth Pyrometer 2.0 temperature checks and temperature capturing and help streamline food safety workflow for operators and staff.
Squadle is a customizable operations platform that restaurants use to eliminate their paper-based manager playbooks, checklists and compliance forms.
Bluetooth Pyrometer 2.0 prioritizes and streamlines bluetooth pyrometer usage, eliminating manual temperature checks and ensuring that restaurants accurately complete and record required food inspections.
The latest updates are improving store-level compliance and efficiency scores by over 10 per cent, the company said in a press release.
Squadle Digital Checklist recently upgraded three features:
Bluetooth Pyrometer 2.0 – Eliminating manual temperature checks, Bluetooth Pyrometer 2.0 defaults to a digital only temperature capture. The Squadle software now requires temperatures to be recorded from a handheld pyrometer or a remote temperature monitoring device. This provides operators with real-time performance updates on store operations.
Workflow enhancements – The temperature keyboard guides users through the temperature taking process when using a bluetooth pyrometer. New audio plays each time the system is ready to take another product temperature and prompts indicate when the pyrometer has started, stabilized, and completed each reading.
Squadle QR codes – The latest QR code functionality allows shift managers to quickly scan codes that are strategically placed across the store premises, and speeds up the regular inspection process that operators implement.
“The latest Squadle updates, including Bluetooth Pyrometer 2.0, have made a positive impact to our franchise operations,” said Stacy Vorhees, McDonald’s owner-operator, in the release. “As an operator, I have full transparency into each daily shift, and Squadle helps maintain our organization’s high level of integrity and standards.”
The company will explain the software in a webinar on Jan. 28.
