Wireless monitoring for HACCP compliance

12/16/2005


Bolton, and Kendal, U.K. — An agreement to jointly offer service-based solutions for the food industry was announced by: Comtech Holdings Ltd .—a leading machine-to-machine (M2M) provider, and Invisible Systems Ltd —a value added reseller.
Invisible Systems delivers local wireless-monitoring solutions to food end-users within factories, retail stores, and transportation. Solutions include automated temperature monitoring for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) compliance and recording of corrective actions, where information is delivered to end users on a service basis. Comtech provides the “M2M within” the application through itsingle location via the Internet. Invisible Systems was able to tailor the solution to meet end users’ business needs through configuration rather than design with a service-based approach offering a quick time to market and rapid return on investment.

“We looked at creating our own solution for monitoring remotes sites via the Internet, but soon discovered the complexity of an end-to-end solution that would have taken us 18-months to develop” said Pete Thompson, managing director, Invisible Systems. He added, “Within three weeks of working with Comtech, we had a demonstration system completed.”
