Keep on top of hygiene tasks in your kitchen

February 15th , 2023 by

A digital monitoring system can get your hygiene and maintenance schedule running like clockwork with MonikaPrime‘s Team Management software and Smart PA device.

Using a digital system for managing cleaning and maintenance removes paper from hygienic areas and saves time spent checking, filing and accessing records.

A digital system also ensures nothing gets missed or completed ‘retrospectively’ – staff are reminded when tasks are due, and tasks can only be checked off when the staff member is in the designated area at the designated time.

Moreover, your Monika system provides full remote management oversight so that you can monitor and compare KPI performance of all your sites in one place.

Below are examples of routine tasks that you can assign to specific sites, areas/teams and staff members.
