With a series of legacy systems inherited from various business units, SmartSense needed to find a way to seamlessly integrate them all into a unified and updated software solution that could cover all of their business activities. With a lack of technical expertise in mobile app development, our partner´s team was stretched thin, making this challenge even more daunting.

Our innovative solution combines wireless sensors with advanced remote monitoring software, providing valuable insights to enhance safety, productivity, and regulatory compliance. We created a mobile app from scratch, specifically designed to capture equipment temperatures, record product temperatures, and complete quality checklists, offering real-time monitoring and reporting of critical information to ensure compliance with food safety regulations and quality standards.
