Burlodge has always been at the forefront in developing ways to monitor and control the programming and operating information related to its meal delivery system equipment. Clients have seen the benefits in risk management and HACCP documentation.
The software that Burlodge has developed is called BWise and this is the base that supports the HACCP and trolley control processes. BWise is the database software that allows full management of trolley programming, time and temperature events, historical, technical information and Smart card writing/programming.
By means of a food probe attached to the trolley, food temperatures can electronically be recorded to the control panel. The food temperature can also be linked to a menu.
The trolley control panel is fitted with a Smart Card Reader slot which will allow the operator to download and program trolleys using a Smart Card (BCardWise and BCardWise+), that can be inserted into the trolley when required. This eliminates the requirement to connect a PC to each trolley. The card is then inserted into a CARD Reader that is connected to a PC to download or upload information. There are two types Smart Cards:-
• BCardWise (blue card) allows user ID recognition and access and easy cycle programming simply by swiping the card
• BCardWise+ (yellow card) allows download of HACCP data from the trolley, up to 32 trolleys can be transferred onto a PC in conjunction with the Burlodge “BWise” Software. The BCardWise+ can also be used for uploading future software upgrades onto the trolley.
The BWise system can also be networked with the option of “BNetWise+” via a LAN or Wifi network. This is achieved by adding an optional electronic board to trolley which allows real time monitoring where information is accessed via a central PC in conjunction with the BWise Software.
The Burlodge BNetWise+ system is compliment to Call Centre Concepts for today and into the future. The BNetWise+ is composed of an “up to the minute” control HACCP monitoring system, that gives you total control of your trolleys, an on/off button, a cycle start/stop, a temperature and time read out, trolley reprogramming, and an events and search function. It also is capable of paging a person if a trolley is in distress.
The Burlodge BWise & BNetWise+ system allows continuous electronic monitoring of every time and temperature operation carried out by the trolley and operator, putting you in control of HACCP and due diligence information and providing a paperless quality assurance program. It is a sophisticated yet simple to use management tool which allows complete monitoring of trolleys.
