ConnectedFresh helping thousands of people enjoy better and fresher tomatoes every day.VMP Produce is a wholesale produce distributor in St. Louis, Missouri. Despite being a recent addition to St. Louis’ Produce Row, they bring 50 years of industry knowledge and experience to the local produce market. Once the owners of VMP Produce saw the struggles with temperature levels and monitoring, they were quick to have their entire facility outfitted with ConnectedFresh environment monitoring sensors. Using a combination of cellular LTE and Radio Frequency sensors, we are able to monitor the temperatures of numerous coolers and provide real time alerts for all of the VMP Produce cold storage units. One of the key challenges on this project was the nature of the buildings at St. Louis Produce Row. Originally constructed in the 1950’s, before the internet or cell phones, the buildings were constructed with concrete and steel, a potential nightmare for WiFi and cellular frequencies. By using a mix of technology solutions, ConnectedFresh was able to achieve full signal coverage where others have failed! Years in any industry can cause people to do today what they did yesterday. In produce distribution, that is often acceptable. However, we are not some technology geeks telling you how to run your business. We are technology geeks making your life easier, more productive, and more profitable! Contact us, and you can be a success story too.
