MenuPilot®, the flagship application of DayMark Safety Systems’ MenuCommand® kitchen automation platform, is now available on iOS for iPads. With the MenuPilot app, food service operators can now use their iPad to organize, monitor, and modify shelf life, nutritional facts, allergen information, and prep data virtually anytime and anywhere.
“The really great news is that many food service operations already use iPads in their kitchens,” says Jill Carte, Director of Product Development for DayMark. “The availability of iOS for iPads will allow the use of MenuPilot without having to purchase new tablets.”
Data collected from the application can be managed on a monitoring web platform using the iPad – or using an Android tablet or PC. Food service operators have shown a preference for Apple iPads due to their easy-to-learn interface, layers of security to protect against viruses, and seamless integration between hardware and software.
MenuPilot application, coupled with streamlined corporate management of menu
data via the MenuCommand® web portal, reduces dependence on hardware and
increases emphasis on platform. Together, these tools facilitate the
centralized management and communication of critical menu data and training
materials to foodservice operations.
“DayMark also delivers companion hardware with the Matt85™ and Matt77™ direct thermal label printers, facilitating on-demand production of shelf-life, food rotation and complex grab & go product labeling,” adds Carte. “With access from any internet connection, data changes can be communicated immediately to staff anywhere.”
The iOS platform for the iPad provides real-time training opportunities to directors and employees through the cloud. Training materials such as videos and recipes can be viewed at any time from any location. According to Carte, “What makes it even more appealing is that the user experience for iOS is intuitive enough that there is almost no learning curve.”
