Johnson Controls has announced the launch of the PENN® Connected—Digital Food Safety, a compliance management system.

PENN Connected—Digital Food Safety sets a new standard in food safety management with advanced capabilities and customizable software modules that can be configured to meet each retailer, foodservice provider, and manufacturers’ needs. The system manages all aspects of food safety including data monitoring, recording, and reporting to ensure food is stored, prepared, and consumed safely.

PENN Connected—Digital Food Safety features an end-to-end system made up of three components that work together to monitor, record, and report food safety compliance data:

  • Refrigeration sensors and Bluetooth thermometer: The system is compatible with a Bluetooth thermometer and battery-powered refrigeration sensors―with a GSM Gateway―for around the clock refrigeration monitoring.
  • Cloud-based platform: It features a cloud-based platform to record and store compliance data captured by battery-powered refrigeration sensors or a Bluetooth thermometer.
  • Mobile application: A mobile application connected to the Bluetooth thermometer allows staff to record temperature and tasks. It features a wide range of capabilities including reminders and alerts to ensure tasks are completed correctly and on time.

Together, these components allow an organization to go paperless, resulting in improved compliance, increased operational efficiencies, and enterprise-wide visibility. This leads to more accurate data, time and money savings, and a redirection of valuable labor.
