Navitas has launched a kitchen ‘Smartprobe’, which it claims is a game-changer in the foodservice industry.
The device has been designed to streamline the key processes involved with foodservice from one-man deli counters up to a multi-location airport lounge set-up.
The Smartprobe was developed in association with the De Montfort University Design Unit, led by Professor Peter Ford, with the brief ‘to create a gun-esque device, driven by Android, which will link to a cloud-based software platform’. Following three years in the making, the device is now being operated in Blue Chip locations.
Through tapping the touchscreen, the Smartprobe records the supplier, goods delivered, temperature, condition of the packaging and then requests a signature. The process for cooking, reheating, and chilling are equally as simple.
The probe can be placed on its side to idle when not in use but once picked up is ready for instant use.
For enterprise clients, the probe’s functionality can be remapped to suit the business need, with an innovate API enabling the remapped probe to integrate with the Navitas platform.
The Navitas Smartprobe, which costs £410, is the key enabler for the Navitas Digital Food Safety system, developed in association with The European Safety Bureau.
