American West Restaurant Group takes a slice out of energy consumption at their Pizza Hut restaurants
Sapphire Foods leveraged a data-driven approach to manage their Pizza Hut restaurants
The Connected Restaurant Program uses Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and IoT platform along with human expertise to enable restaurant operators to efficiently manage equipment operations. The service helps deliver quick positive cash-flows and can be scaled from a few hundred restaurants to thousands. The CORTIXedge™ system offers edge connectivity and control, predictive actionable insights and autonomous actions by the CORTIX™ AI and IoT platform and 24/7 remote support and proactive actions by the BluEdge™ Command Center.
The program enables restaurant operators to collect information from all connected devices like Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, refrigerators, cooking equipment and lighting to effectively manage their facilities through predictive insights. Restaurant operators can easily monitor critical components such as air quality, temperature and humidity and help create a better indoor environment. The main aim of the program is to enable restaurant operators to digitally transform their operations - to make them more predictive and proactive. As of Q2 2021, this service is deployed globally across over 1,300 restaurants of multiple leading brands, saving over 44 million kWh, while improving maintenance processes, food safety and occupant comfort. Here is a quick glance of a few case studies, showing the results of using the connected restaurant program for the past 4 years or more.
