WECO Hospitality was founded focused on finding a way to provide healthy, delicious, and convenient food to families, and has quickly grown to become a popular food delivery service.
WECO Hospitality is available for delivery in over 200 Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island towns. Customers have praised their food, their customer service, and their convenience.
WECO Hospitality has a large fleet of coolers that are used to store food for delivery. The coolers are essential to the business, but as with all coolers, it can also become a source of hidden issues. The coolers can be left open or temperature can rise due to a mechanical issue, which which can affect the quality of the food.
WECO Hospitality implemented ConnectedFresh sensors in its coolers to monitor temperature and humidity. The sensors send alerts to WECO Hospitality's team if the coolers are left open or if the temperature or humidity fluctuate outside of the desired range. This allows WECO Hospitality to keep food fresh and reduce waste.
ConnectedFresh sensors provide a number of benefits to WECO Hospitality, including:
- Preventative maintenance: The sensors allow WECO Hospitality to identify potential problems with its coolers before they become major issues. This helps WECO Hospitality to avoid costly repairs and downtime.
- Improved food quality: The sensors help WECO Hospitality to keep food fresh and reduce waste. This results in better tasting food for customers.
- Reduced food waste: ConnectedFresh sensors help WECO Hospitality to reduce food waste by identifying potential problems with its coolers before they cause food to spoil. This saves WECO Hospitality money and helps the environment.
