The Benefits of Remote Monitoring with Eco-Smart

Posted by RDT on Jun 8, 2020 4:40:37 PM

 

In a world where foodservice hours are limited and operations are adjusting to meet new regulations, finding a way to reduce spending while still serving can be difficult. We understand that changes in the industry are inevitable and making them a little less stressful is important.

One of the many ways to follow these new guidelines, operate safely, and maintain the quality of your foodservice products is through remote monitoring. This allows you to use technology to your benefit and ensure your product doesn't go bad. It also allows you to troubleshoot and service equipment without having to replace it as often. Through systems like the Eco-Smart Conroller, refrigeration control is made easy.

Schools switched from in-person learning to an online platform literally overnight. At RDT, our FSCI seminars for the foreseeable future have been postponed, and many trade shows cancelled. Restaurants have had to adapt their business models, and, in turn, we have had to switch to a virtual learning mindset.

Restaurant Energy Consumption Statistics and the High Cost of Energy

Posted by RDT on Apr 10, 2020 12:33:00 PM

 

Energy costs are always a major concern in the restaurant industry. The ongoing, robust use of energy-intensive, commercial kitchen appliances is hard on the electric bill. In fact, restaurants consume three times more energy per square foot than other commercial enterprises according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Specialized equipment and extensive hours of operation, as well as high demand, cause excessive energy usage and sometimes even wasteful practices.
