Campbelltown Catholic Club joins the CCP network

The award-winning Campbelltown Catholic Club presents South West Sydney with impressive dining, entertainment, accommodation, fitness and leisure facilities. As one of the top registered clubs in New South Wales with over 53,000 members, the club’s food service operation serves over 13,000 meals every week. Food safety and food quality is front of mind and the club’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monitoring of refrigeration using low-cost cotemporary Internet of Things (IoT) technology is far better approach than out-of-date and error-prone manual checks.”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 installed at Bankstown Sport Club

Bankstown Sports Club is at the forefront of a highly competitive hospitality environment. With over 65,000 members, affiliations with 40 sports clubs and over 500 employees, the club has grown and developed to become one of the most contemporary clubs in New South Wales (NSW). Patrons enjoy affordable, high-quality and diverse dining experiences, which is amplified by an onsite microbrewery.

The club has installed CCP to support its food and beverage operations, where refrigeration is mission critical.

Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said, “There are more than 1,300 registered clubs in New South Wales. At every club there is an increasing focus on using food and beverage to attract and retain customers. That means refrigeration systems are more mission critical than ever before and food safety is a very high priority. We offer an affordable solution to reduce the business risks associated with food safety and refrigeration failure. We delighted that Bankstown Sports, one of Sydney’s top 10 registered clubs, has installed CCP.”

The CCP installation at Bankstown Sports Club is complex. With food service, kitchen and beverage operations over several levels and a substantial basement environment, implementing wireless Internet of Things (IoT) solutions is challenging.

Mr White said, “We are monitoring over 110 locations at Bankstown Sports, which includes fridges, freezers, cool-rooms and glycol tanks. The implementation uses our new Sigfox LPWAN smart tags which are operating in hostile environments.”

Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise refrigeration performance.

Web and mobile dashboards provide easy access to business intelligence and task management.

Bankstown Sports Club joins Mingara Recreation Club in a growing list of registered clubs using CCP.

Paul Barnett, Non-Executive Director at ClubsNSW Ltd and Chief Executive Officer of Mingara Recreation Club said, “The technology has been fantastic for us and has saved over 10k already in the first six months, through not losing stock when refrigerators have broken down.”

CCP offers a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached.

CCP secures Mendakota’s 19th hole

The Mendakota Country Club in Minnesota is steeped in history and has evolved into one of the finest private clubs in the Twin Cities area. Located where the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers meet, the impressive club house features panoramic views over the golf course, which makes it the perfect setting for fine dining, wedding ceremonies and receptions, social events and business meetings.

For many devotees, golf is more than just a sport: it’s a social occasion. Increasingly, the trend is for golf clubs to offer sophisticated hospitality. In a 2017-2018 private club trends report, the CMAA noted that national surveys continue to show that club dining operations represent the most popular amenity offered by clubs.

Mendakota Country Club is open year-round, and dining operations are under the watchful eye of Executive Chef, Michael Harper. With food safety a key priority in food service, Mr Harper must ensure his operations run smoothly when he is not on-site. This led to CCP being engaged to provide 24/7 wireless automated temperature monitoring at Club premises, rather than continuing with traditional paper-based manual checking methods, which can be unreliable.

Mr Chicoine, CCP Network North America’s President, commented that:

“Automated continuous temperature monitoring of refrigeration is far more reliable than manual checks. In using CCP’s low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) technology, Mendakota has immediately reduced its business risk”.

Helping to keep the beer cold at Capital Brewing Co

Capital Brewing Co was formed by a close group of connoisseurs of great beer, music and adrenaline-pumping experiences. From its American-influenced “gypsy brewer” origins 18 months ago, the company now has a new Production Brew House and Tap Room in Fyshwick, Canberra.

Craft brewing is a flourishing sector. Industry figures suggest approximately 400 craft brewers in Australia generate almost $500 million in yearly revenue, and this is growing at a rate of 10% per year. Competition is fierce and each brewer is aiming to create a signature flavour.

Capital Brewing Co’s products are distributed to over 550 pubs, bars, restaurants and bottle shops nationally and internationally. The impressive brewery and tap room attracts over 5,000 guests per week. CCP is now monitoring their fermentation tanks using external temperature probes.

Head Brewer (Wade Hurley pictured) uses the flexibility of profile settings in the CCP App to monitor fermentation and cooling cycles. One of the major influencers in beer flavour is controlling the temperature during fermentation. By using CCP to monitor temperature in each tank, the brewery team are alerted to any “out of tolerance” events.

Michael White, CCP CEO, has said: “When it comes to brewing beer, temperature is a critical control point. This implementation demonstrates the diverse applications for our solution. Great tasting beer kept nice and cold… we’re pretty happy to help the team at Capital Brewing Co”.

Life’s Great with CCP installed

Mingara Recreation Club facilities are viewed by NSW Central Coast locals as a “life essential”. As part of its vision to make a significant contribution to the community, this club offers aquatic, fitness and athletics facilities, restaurants, cafes, bars, events and promotions.

In a highly competitive hospitality environment, clubs focus on affordable high-quality dining. However, unlike standard food service venues, hospitality operations in a large club is challenging. Under the one roof, clubs offer highly diverse food experiences with menus frequently changing.

Mingara offers some of the best dining experiences in the NSW Central Coast region. Food safety is a top priority. The club has recently installed CCP to support its hospitality business. Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise refrigeration performance.

Michael White, CCP CEO, said: “There are more than 1,300 registered clubs in New South Wales. At every club there is an increasing focus on hospitality. That means refrigeration systems are more mission critical than ever before. We offer an affordable solution to reduce the business risks associated with refrigeration failure.”

CCP offers a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached.

Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan joins the CCP Network

Meals on Wheels meal delivery services have been operating across Australia for many decades. Currently, there are over 600 centres across the country providing meal services and support to vulnerable members of the community (elderly and frail, and people who are younger with a disability) – enabling these people to remain independent and at home.

In NSW, the community-based not-for-profit organisation has been running for 60 years. Our latest client, Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan – part of the NSW network – supplies meals and support five days per week to people living within that local government area.
For food service operations dealing with vulnerable persons, food safety is critical.

Michael White, CCP CEO, said:

“I’m delighted to see another Meals on Wheels join the CCP Network. We offer a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached”.

The NSW Food Authority currently licenses around 1,200 businesses that provide food service to vulnerable persons, including: hospitals, aged care facilities, same-day aged care services, respite services, and certain “delivered meal” organisations like Meals on Wheels.

A recent NSW Food Authority industry forum report (1) has highlighted the importance of food safety when serving vulnerable persons.

“Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise operations”, Mr White said.

Web and mobile dashboards provide business intelligence and task management.

St Kilda’s Junction Cafe joins the CCP network

The Junction Café is located on the busy St Kilda Junction in Melbourne. The new owner, Michael Bradley, has wasted no time in rebuilding patronage by presenting an attractive menu, delicious coffee and attentive service.

Behind the scenes, the Junction Café is now a very different proposition. As a testimony to their focus on food safety and food quality, CCP has been installed in the café’s fridges.

“Refrigeration systems are critical to my business. When a fridge fails it causes significant business disruption. With CCP in my fridges, I’ll immediately know if there’s a problem. But more importantly, I want to know my fridges are doing their job of keeping food at the right temperatures to optimise safety and shelf-life,” Mr Bradley said.

CCP’s smart tags continuously monitor temperature controlled environments. Web and Mobile dashboards display critical control point information. Reports provide easy access to compliance and task management records. Configurable alerts are delivered via SMS, push notification and email. Business Intelligence reports provide enterprise and site level KPI’s.
