About FreshCheq

FreshCheq is a food logging solution designed to help restaurants, food trucks, and other food preparation businesses to ensure safety with temperature logs and checklists. With features including measurement logging, temperature logging, measurement scheduling, real time updates, reporting, and more, FreshCheq aims to assist restaurant employees in tracking safety measures.

Designed to automate food safety temperature logs and checklists for food preparation businesses, FreshCheq can be used by both small restaurant businesses and large franchises with multi-location management. Logs can be created within FreshCheq for measures such as food temperature or employee hygiene, allowing users to customize the title of the log, add items requiring checks, and input accepted value ranges or a pass/fail selection. Management can set up schedules to determine days and times that measurements are required to be completed, holding employees accountable for their fulfillment.

The corporate view allows management within larger businesses to view reports and summaries for each restaurant location and the dashboard provides an overview of how many checks had not been completed, how many checks were failed or passed, and how many times corrective action has been taken. Reports can be generated with one click and accessed for any specific day or within a certain time period, meaning they can be easily retrieved during health inspections.

Key benefits of FreshCheq

  • The corporate view gives management the tools to monitor progress across locations and define access permissions when creating logs. Corporate level users can create logs that can’t be edited by store-level users.

  • Set up SMS or email alerts to be sent to specific team members or management when measurements are missed or fail, and customize which times or days of the week alerts are sent for each scenario.

  • FreshCheq can be accessed from any smart device or computer to input measurement from within the kitchen and access reports anywhere/anytime when needed.

  • Users at all levels can view reports to summarize any specific day or time, or within a certain time period to see how many logs were completed, missed, failed, and more. Streak data also provides users with information on the number of consecutive days that checks have been carried out to schedule and passed in each location.

  • Management can add employees to the employee database and assign logs and tasks to specific team members in order to hold employees accountable for logging their measurements as scheduled.

    One major problem we have solved with FreshCheq is that our food temps and logs are getting done on a daily basis consistently.

    Pros

    I am so glad that I purchased this software. It is very easy to use and set up. I think it is a great value for what you get. They are always updating the software to make it easier for your operation. We use it for our food logs and also for check list and closing responsibilities. Its great when your food inspector comes in and you have all your temp logs all in one place, and can quickly access it for them. It is also a great resource for accountability for your team members. I like the app that they just created. You can also know take photos.

    Cons

    There isn't anything that we don't like about FreshCheq

    A product in development that doesn't need extra hardware, but requires some patience.

    Reviewed on 2019/04/02

    Two years use in a multi-location restaurant franchise.

    Pros

    It doesn't require anything special in the way of hardware to work. You can use any cell phone, tablet or computer. Some other temperature checking services require you to purchase proprietary thermometers etc for them to work. It doesn't take long to teach others how to use the product. It is fairly rudimentary in its interface.

    Cons

    This product is unfinished. It doesn't allow for on-the-fly changes to how it is used or the order in which it is used. Reporting is often faulty- it will show you that the process is not complete when it is. Dependent on the quality of internet access versus being a true standalone product.

    FreshCheq has helped make sure that we stay organized and current with taking daily temperatures.

    Pros

    It's user friendly. No mess of paper, records daily, weekly and monthly data. Able to communicate via text, email if a task needs or wasn't completed.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have a feature where you could click and drag an item into a spot instead of using up and down arrows. It's alittle time consuming.

    Response from FreshCheq

    Tesla,

    Thank you for the awesome review. We love getting great feedback from our customers. Please contact us to better understand your request. We have a significant amount of development in process over the next few months and we are excited to continuously make a difference in how you run your business.

    it makes me accountable to my daily routine, and the necessary tools needed to run an efficient operation.

    Pros

    This program is a great addition to our team. It saves greatly on amount of paperwork that we used on a daily basis. It gives you all your resources and tools right in the palm of your hand. Very quickly to catch on, and become a tool, part of daily routine.

    Cons

    The only thing I wish I had more control over, is access to tweak features, or make necessary changes according to my store.

    Response from FreshCheq

    Thank you for your review, Vanessa! Each store has the control to customize their logs and reports, unless otherwise stipulated by your store owner or the franchise. I recommend discussing your proposed log changes with your owner, who has permissions to make the changes.
