NRA Show 2015

STRATFORD, Conn.--()--Kitchen Brains, the global leader in timers, controls and SaaS solutions for the commercial kitchen/foodservice industry, has partnered with Canvas to create the SCK® Food Safety Manager application, FSM Easy, which eliminates paper HACCP forms and checklists. It is the simplest, remote monitoring solution for automating food safety temperature tracking and manual checklists. SCK® Food Safety Manager (FSM) is one of Kitchen Brains® growing family of cloud-based solutions for foodservice operators. Canvas is a cloud-based software service that enables businesses to replace expensive and inefficient paper forms with powerful mobile apps for their smartphones and tablets. Kitchen Brains will be demonstrating this application along with their other Food Safety Manager products and Genius Suite of SaaS Apps at NRA 2015, the National Restaurant Association Show, from May 16th-19th in Chicago.

“Kitchen Brains searched for a mobile solutions partner and found Canvas. We were immediately drawn to the fact that Canvas is best in breed in bringing paperless checklists to a wide range of industries using mobile devices and tablets. More importantly, they helped us develop and deploy a custom app which integrates with our mySCK portal that is specifically designed to simplify food safety recordkeeping in commercial kitchens,” said Mario Ceste, CEO of Kitchen Brains.

“Since Canvas is built on an open API, all of the data collected flows securely into our cloud-based software, which is then stored in the Kitchen Brains portal. This allows access to completed checklists anywhere, anytime,” said Michael Benedict, vice president of the of Canvas Application Store.

With FSM Easy, Kitchen Brains saw an opportunity to simplify and mobilize one of the most basic, but critical tests done throughout the day in a kitchen, taking the temperature of cooked food. This eliminates the need to record the kitchen data on cumbersome paper forms. State-of-the-art food safety is made possible with FSM.

One of the most crucial elements to any commercial kitchen is the ability to safely cook, store, and serve quality food at precise temperatures. Food Safety Manager is a total solution for recording, collecting, and analyzing the data needed to run a successful kitchen. The FSM solution from Kitchen Brains is easy to use and available now on the Canvas Application Store. Setting up FSM Easy is as simple as syncing your device to the MySCK portal.
