Claim Jumper is one of iQuality’s customers.

“As a leader in the food service industry, food safety and freshness is one of the most important aspects of our business and maintaining our reputation,” said Ted Stathakis, vice president of technology for Claim Jumper.

“The use of iQuality has allowed us to easily maintain HACCP regulations and improve the quality and quickness of our reporting process, because everything is electronic and readily available to operators. ”

iQuality enables Claim Jumper Restaurants to proactively support and provide enterprise control for its Hazard Analysis for Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs by offering ready access to checklists, enterprise updates and reports for site and corporate staff.

The easy-to-use tool utilizes a combination of software, a temperature probe and a waterproof handheld device to automate food safety and inspection programs at each restaurant site, allowing chefs to focus on great taste and presentation rather than filling out forms.

When a walkthrough is due, the application notifies kitchen staff with flashing and audible alarms. Step-by-step checklists take employees through the correct procedures.

Temperature data is automatically captured, reducing opportunities for error. If checkpoints are missed or unsafe conditions are detected, iQuality provides real-time feedback with recommended corrective actions.

Once a checklist is complete, the information is transmitted to an enterprise database, where it is available for government-mandated and organizational reporting.

Updates to the application such as adding new items, checklists, and procedures are also made at the enterprise level and automatically synchronized with the handheld units at each site.

“The ability to manage the application and check reports from every Claim Jumper Restaurant over our WAN is invaluable,” said Stathakis.

“We are able to monitor every restaurant, which helps us improve food quality, maintain control of the brand and enhance the Claim Jumper Restaurant reputation around the country.”

Claim Jumper implemented iQuality over two years ago and more than 600 employees in the company’s 44 sites use the system.

To date, iQuality has enabled Claim Jumper Restaurants to capture critical food safety data consistently across the enterprise, streamline regulatory reporting with paperless procedures, and reinforce best practices when unsafe conditions are detected.
