Dyzle's new app-based hand held solution enables automatic registration of incoming goods and manual measurements as part of its cloud-based cold chain monitoring platform, replacing more costly and difficult to use industrial handheld devices
May 11, 2014 (Newswire) - Dyzle BV, the global leader in measuring and analyzing business process data for the cold chain in real-time, has launched a new low cost sensor and app for smartphones to provide proof or product integrity of temperature-sensitive products being handled in the food, pharmaceutical and retail logistics cold chain. The new solution replaces more costly and difficult to use industrial handheld devices, enabling automatic temperature registration of incoming goods and manual measurements. The measured data is also uploading and directly integrated into Dyzle's cloud-based platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution, to enable complete visibility of a company's cold chain.
The main purpose of temperature monitoring is to assure customers that their food, medicines or temperature-sensitive retail products are safe to consume or use. The availability of an easy to use smartphone based sensor and app provides additional assurance of product's safety and integrity at various points in the logistics chain where they are transferred from one part of the cold chain to another.
Temperature of incoming goods or prepared meals can easily be confirmed by using the smartphone app combined with a temperature sensor probe or steak thermometer that can be stuck directly into the food. The app displays the temperature of the food, and indicates whether it is within the correct specified temperature range, displaying critical values, and also indicating any corrective action that may need to be taken. The data is also automatically integrated into the cloud and stored in the portal - allowing quality assurance departments or managers to access reports and details at any time. By storing the data in the same central database as the rest of the cold chain data, this enables full visibility of product integrity throughout the logistics network.
A significant benefit of the new sensor and app is the time-saving benefit and automatic reporting capability. In terms of time, it eliminates the need for manual paper recording of temperature data of incoming goods and manual measurements. And since the data is uploaded and integrated directly into the portal, this provides automatic reporting.
The sensor and app is part of the complete real-time cold chain monitoring platform provided by Dyzle to provide interpretation and analysis of measured variables such as temperature, humidity, energy consumption and CO2. The open independent platform can integrate and utilize data collected from any source, whether it is from proprietary systems or legacy technologies. Through the entire supply chain - from storage to transport and distribution - Dyzle collects data, analyzes it, and makes it visible via a 'one click' personal dashboard accessible securely over the web from any internet-enabled device; this enables full visibility of the total cold chain.
Dyzle offers customers undisputable evidence for the quality of temperature sensitive products. From farm-to-fork or production-to-patient, Dyzle is able to monitor the cold supply chain in real-time. With different dashboards for general management, quality assurance (QA) and logistics management, customers in food and pharmaceuticals are able to reduce their cost and unburden the stress of regulatory requirements.
