Hobart Warewash has launched a new app allowing users to control the running of multiple machines from their phone or tablet.
WashSmart, which is available to download now and compliant with all new Hobart purchases, lets operators control the integral functionality of multiple machines at the touch of a button.
The new app makes it simple to monitor levels of detergent and water in real time and determine overall operating costs. Users can download an instant hygiene report, request a quote and order necessary consumables, and review error reports relating to machine breakdowns.
Hobart claims WashSmart is available to users at a “fraction of the price” of existing competitor apps meaning operators who owns a Hobart Warewasher can benefit from its efficient and practical features.
Tim Bender, sales director at Hobart Warewashing UK, said: “The launch of our WashSmart app is a fantastic milestone for Hobart and a benchmark for warewashing standards across the industry. Significantly cheaper than our competitors, moving forward it is set to revolutionise how operators manage and maintain the essential pieces of Hobart kit in their armoury – connecting users to their machines remotely allowing for ultimate economy and control.”
Mr Bender said that as well as giving users a straightforward overview of all the machines they have running, it delves into far more detail, meaning users can rest assured that they will always have a handle on outgoing costs, can deal effectively with potentially problematic errors and uphold operating standards.
Catering equipment apps are poised to become more widely used over the next 12 months as manufacturers look to support the increasing digitisation of kitchens.
Earlier this week FEJ revealed how Rational is close to launching an app that will provide video-based content and advice to chefs using its combi ovens.
