Avoiding spoilage while ensuring efficiency
Real-Time Insight on Route Progress, Produce Temperatures and More
Owners and managers of food and beverage distribution operations have more to keep track of than most: beyond the current location and status of their vehicles, they must also monitor maintenance and inspections, the temperature of the produce, progress of multiple routes and compliance with Federal safety regulations. StreetEagle is a sophisticated enough software platform to handle food and beverage fleet management using one interface, and can be configured to provide data for specific locations and time windows and customized alerts to monitor your cargo the way you need to.
Temperature Monitoring That Combines Location, Duration and Temp Data
StreetEagle’s temperature monitoring capabilities go much further in terms of their configurability to deliver only the information you need during critical time windows, while not bombarding you with alerts that aren’t necessary. The alerts combine produce temperature readings, durations and location to deliver the data that really matters: for example, letting you know when temperatures exceed a certain threshold only when a vehicle is in transit. These precise, customizable alerts help you to avoid spoilage and costly purges while complying with Federal mandates – protecting both the bottom line, and your company’s reputation.
Additionally, StreetEagle’s food and beverage fleet management offering includes remote monitoring for managers using our mobile app. Most systems allow for onboard temperature readings that drivers can see, but can’t provide that intelligence to owners or managers who are on the road. That extra layer of real-time visibility means added protection against product loss and, more importantly, peace of mind.
The Only Solution with LiveRoute: Real-Time Route Progress Analytics
Many food and beverage operations have their routes planned out on spreadsheets, and then spend a lot of time and effort trying to keep track of actual progress (and changes) manually. But StreetEagle has a tool called LiveRoute, which tracks route progress in real time and allows you to find out the exact status of any route, at any time, and alerts you to changes as the day proceeds. You can import your routes into the system and then monitor each route within the software – so that when the inevitable changes come, you can respond immediately, maintain service and avoid costly delays.
The Security and Protection of Integrated Camera Systems
StreetEagle can integrate both interior and exterior vehicle cameras that deliver yet another layer of visibility for food and beverage distributors – when a stop is made or you receive a temperature alert, you can view a video clip (linked to from the alert or stop) that will allow you to see the actual produce itself. And, StreetEagle LiveCam allows you to access these clips in multiple ways – directly from a stop on the map, through an alert sent to your mobile device, or from an archive of stored clips. Whenever events occur that require investigation, StreetEagle provides the video you need to examine exactly what happened, and the confidence to take the necessary next steps.
Digital Tools to Track Maintenance and Vehicle Inspections
Compliance with DOT regulations for ELD, Hours of Service (HoS), vehicle inspections and cabin temperatures are all major concerns for this industry – and all can be managed using StreetEagle mobile apps. For example, our ELD app includes DVIR forms that can be customized to reflect the inspections points that are critical to your business, and easily sent back to the office. And StreetEagle includes a full maintenance package that will keep track of vehicle repair histories and uptimes, odometer readings, fuel usage and more.
