Luson Health joins the CCP network

Luson Health joins the CCP network

Luson Health is implementing the CCP Solution across its residential care homes in the greater Melbourne region, Australia. A boutique residential aged care provider, the team at Luson have a people first philosophy and maintain the highest standard of care as trusted leaders of the aged care industry.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were 902 organisations providing residential aged care through 2,672 services at 30 June 2017. In addition, there were 1,523 organisations funded to provide home support over 2016/17 through 3,308 services. Despite growing demand for services, aged care providers face their fair share of challenges. By using CCP, Luson is aiming to increase productivity.

Nick & Brad, owners of Luson Health said,

“Australia’s ageing population is driving greater demand for aged care services. At the same time, the aged care industry faces significant workforce pressures. It is becoming increasingly important for operators to support their staff by providing productivity tools.”

“We see CCP as an Operational Technology which supports regulatory compliance and efficiency. Reliance on manually checking and recording refrigeration temperatures for food safety is time consuming, prone to errors, and doesn’t help if a refrigeration unit fails after hours. With CCP installed, temperature records are fully automated and alert notifications provide peace of mind.”

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP Technologies said,

“The Australian community values older people having access to high quality aged care services. In aged care settings, elderly people are more vulnerable to food safety risks which can have serious consequences. Luson is reducing paperwork and, at the same time, they’re cost effectively increasing food safety. It’s a win-win. That’s why CCP continues to build a foothold in the growing Aged Care sector.”

CCP estimates the food service temperature monitoring market for the Aged Care sector in Australia to be over 50,000 monitoring points.

CCP launches Shipment Monitoring solution

CCP launches Shipment Monitoring solution

CCP Technologies Limited (“CCP” or “The Company”) is pleased to announce that it has launched its Shipment Monitoring Smart Tag to meet critical control point monitoring requirements in transport and logistics environments.

Since temperature is the most critical environmental parameter affecting the perishable food supply chain, it is commonly referred to as the “cold chain”. All cold chain stakeholders have a requirement for temperature monitoring to comply with food safety legislation and regulations.

When it comes to shipment monitoring, the global market is currently dominated by passive data loggers. Data loggers are typically connected to a PC to download temperature data at the end of the journey; however, these do not provide a real-time preventative management tool. The CCP shipment monitoring solution is a novel multi-path connectivity approach which leverages diverse LPWAN, NFC and other communication systems to deliver flexibility. By providing easy access to data at any point along the supply chain, our solution is designed to enable customers to prevent failures before they occur.

When perishable products are shipped, temperature control is critical. If a temperature breach occurs at any point along the supply chain, product quality can be irreparably impacted.  Shipments valued in the millions can be lost or delayed as breaches are investigated, which results in supply interruptions, negative customer impact and risk to product safety.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“CCP now offers end-to-end IoT-based monitoring solutions from farm to fork. The market for our shipment monitoring solution is massive. We estimate the total available market size in Australia and the US for shipment monitoring is 450 million monitoring points. It’s terrific to see our tags being successfully used now in a variety of domestic and export shipment environments.”

The Company’s first installation of its shipment monitoring solution is with a national food distributor who is conducting a trial. Smart Tags were installed in refrigerated trucks and setup to report each driver’s shift. CCP Smart Tags are “tapped” with a mobile phone to activate, configure, capture temperature and GPS location data and set way-points. Once activated, these tags automatically captured temperatures and locations so that the data can be presented in map, graph or report formats on CCP’s platform. Data is available in real-time and include notifications for any out of tolerance events. Geo-fencing features strengthen the shipment monitoring value proposition.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“Globally, food companies are looking to use Blockchain to improve their ability to through-chain monitor the temperature conditions of perishable foods to ensure quality control and extend shelf life. Our shipment monitoring customers will be able to enter into smart contracts which are supported by business rules for product monitoring, breach alerts, product acceptance and product payment. Our new shipment smart tag complements our Blockchain initiatives.”

About CCP

CCP Technologies – a listed public company on the Australian Securities Exchange – offers a critical control point management system in Australia and North America and has an emerging presence in Singapore. Critical control points are the points in a supply chain where a failure of standard operating procedure has potential to cause serious harm to people – and to a business’ reputation and bottom line. Standard critical control points include temperature, energy, environment (e.g. air and water quality, pH, chemicals, noise, acoustics and gases) and movement.

CCP captures data using Smart Tags (sensors) and an advanced Internet of Things (IoT) network which leverages WiFi and various LPWAN connectivity solutions. Data is delivered to the company’s big data cloud platform where it is analysed to deliver business intelligence. Customers access this information through Web and Mobile Dashboards; and receive real-time alerts via SMS, email and push notifications.

The Company’s first target market is the food industry, where food safety regulation, energy savings and waste reduction drives adoption. The company has announced its appliance-level energy (power) monitoring solution for release in 2018.

 

CCP wins food industry award

CCP wins food industry award

Anthony Rowley (CCP Executive Director & COO) was joined at the awards function by the owners of Earth Walker & Co (Coledale, NSW) – one of CCP’s first customers

CCP Technologies Limited (“CCP” or “The Company”) is pleased to announce it has received the Food Safety Equipment & Materials Award at the 2018 Food & Beverage Industry Awards. This category celebrates new products and advancements in technology designed to improve and maintain food safety standards in manufacturing facilities around Australia.

In the food industry, refrigeration is mission critical. To underpin food safety, potentially hazardous foods must be kept under temperature control conditions and temperature records must be kept.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“Based on data we’ve captured, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. In the food industry, if something goes wrong with a fridge, it causes enormous business disruption and can jeopardise food safety. Automated, continuous monitoring of refrigeration using modern Internet of Things (IoT) technology is a far better and more cost-effective approach.”

Global food supply chains contain hundreds of millions of critical control points, where checks (e.g. storage temperature for food) are routinely performed. Manual monitoring of control points, paper trails and information silos presents challenges for governance, risk and compliance. Secure automated data curation and exchange technologies present transformational supply chain opportunities, delivering significant value to their operations.

Mr White said,

“While strengthening regulatory compliance remains a key driver for adoption, customers are using our solution to yield significant energy savings, reduce waste and support preventive maintenance programs. By harnessing the convergence of Cloud computing, IoT with edge-computing, big data analytics, Blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence, CCP is delivering commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to revolutionise supply chains.”

The Company is poised to release its appliance-level energy (power) monitoring solution to empower businesses to reduce their electricity bills and a shipment monitoring solution with Blockchain features to augment perishable food transport.

CCP adds Homestyle to its aged care foothold

CCP adds Homestyle to its aged care foothold

Homestyle Aged Care Services is implementing the CCP Solution across ten residential care homes in the greater Melbourne metropolitan and Geelong areas.

In aged care settings, elderly people are more vulnerable to food safety risks which can have serious consequences. According to the Australian Institute of Food Safety, people’s immune systems tend to grow weaker as they grow older. To underpin food safety, potentially hazardous foods must be kept under temperature control conditions and temperature records must be kept.

Tim Humphries, Chief Executive Officer of Homestyle Aged Care said,

“We are using CCP’s Internet of Things (IoT) solution to deliver an immediate benefit to our food service operations. By implementing this solution, continuous temperature monitoring of refrigeration in our kitchen strengthens food safety straightaway. We’ll also take advantage of built-in analytics to ensure our fridges are performing optimally. This will improve food shelf-life, reduce food waste and support energy efficiency.”

Based on CCP data, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. If fridges breakdown in an aged care food service operation, it causes enormous business disruption and can put people’s lives at risk.

CCP continues to build a foothold in the growing Aged Care sector. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were 902 organisations providing residential aged care through 2,672 services at 30 June 2017. In addition, there were 1,523 organisations funded to provide home support over 2016/17 through 3,308 services. Substantial food service operations exist to support residential aged care facilities and home support services. CCP estimates food service temperature monitoring market for the Aged Care sector in Australia to be over 50,000 monitoring points.

According the Clean Energy Corporation Australia, health and aged care facilities are among the most energy-intensive in Australia. Customers in these sectors are set to benefit from the introduction of CCP’s new appliance-level energy monitoring solution.

The Croydon Hotel implements CCP to reduce risk

The Croydon Hotel implements CCP to reduce risk

The Croydon Hotel situated on the Maroondah Highway almost at the foot of the Yarra Ranges has much to offer with a Bistro, Sports Bar and, “The Social” which is the newest and hippest bar in town. The Hotel promotes local Yarra Valley wines and beers and has a wide variety of high quality food on offer. They cater for large numbers, particularly on weekends and the manager at The Croydon Hotel understands just how important is to have their temperature monitoring under control.

Food safety and food quality is front of mind and the hotel’s decision to install CCP reduces business risk.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,

“Effective and efficient commercial refrigeration supports every aspect of a sophisticated food service operation. If something goes wrong with the fridges, it causes enormous business disruption; and when it comes to perishable food, temperature underpins food safety and shelf-life. There is no doubt, automated continuous monitoring of refrigeration using low-cost contemporary Internet of Things (IoT) technology is a far better approach than out-of-date and error-prone manual checks.”

With CCP installed in refrigerators, an alert notification is immediately sent via email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached.

CCP adds more clubs to its hospitality portfolio

CCP adds more clubs to its hospitality portfolio

The hospitality industry plays an important role in the fabric of every economy. In Australia, this includes over 6,500 registered Clubs who make a socio-economic contribution of almost $10 billion every year[1]. Clubs operate in a challenging business environment, with arduous regulations governing the industry as well as political stability, increasing market fragmentation and consumer choice factors at play. Businesses in the industry are increasingly embracing technology to create differentiation, shape a new experience for patrons, improve efficiency and drive better bottom-line results.

Parramatta Leagues Club in Sydney is the latest hospitality business to install CCP’s critical control point monitoring solution to strengthen its food service operations with Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Home to the Parramatta Eels NRL team, the Club is on a pathway to creating a world-class sports and entertainment precinct encompassing the new Western Sydney Stadium. With a diverse food experience at centre-stage, the Club’s decision to automate refrigeration temperature monitoring mitigates risk.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer, CCP, said,

“In the hospitality industry, fridges are mission critical. If they fail, it causes enormous business disruption and food quality can be jeopardised. Years ago, automated monitoring systems were cost prohibitive and complex to install. Clubs are now finding out just how cost-effective and easy it is to implement CCP.”

Based on data CCP has captured, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. Automated continuous monitoring of refrigeration is a far better approach than out-of-date data loggers and error-prone manual checks.

George Hanna, Managing Director, HD IT said,

“As a Dicker Data channel partner, HD IT was able to connect Parramatta Leagues Club with CCP. Fridge failures can cause enormous disruption to a club’s business and result in significant food waste. Having recently suffered a fridge failure, the Club decided to implement CCP’s monitoring solution to cost-effectively reduce risk. As fridges run 24/7, they’ll use CCP to optimise coolers and freezers to save energy and strengthen food safety.”

By harnessing the convergence of Cloud computing, IoT with edge-computing, big data analytics, Blockchain, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, CCP is delivering commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to revolutionise diverse supply chains. The company is on track to release its next generation business intelligence platform and its power monitoring Smart Tags in August 2018.

Mr White said,

“Spiralling electricity costs have an impact on every business; particularly those businesses with food operations which rely on energy-hungry refrigeration to sustain food quality. Research suggests refrigeration uses 15% of the world’s energy and that mankind is set to use more energy for cooling than heating. CCP’s new appliance-level power monitoring will simply enable our customers to save money on electricity. We are empowering our customers to make better decisions by making converging technologies affordable and accessible.”

CCP recently used its platform to optimise the performance of a small walk-in freezer. Defrost cycle frequency and peak defrost temperature were adjusted. Changes reduced the power cost from $372.30 per month to $244.13 per month, a saving of $128.17/month (52%). The CCP solution provided an ROI of 570% based on a 24-month contract period.

CCP continues to build its hospitality industry foothold. The company’s critical control point monitoring solution is currently used various clubs, casinos, hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars and other venues.
