Refrigeration availability reporting


For food retail organisations knowing from day-to-day the accurate availability status of their estate wide refrigerated systems and associated display cabinets is critical to maintaining service delivery (retail sales) to their customers.


In food retailing the consequences of not maintaining the availability of refrigeration display cases and cold rooms above performance levels of 99.99% can results in significant financial loss due to a reduction in the ability to trade from the shop floor.

Up to now the assessment of plant availability is usually manually based on often inaccurate information provided by service contractors, anecdotal evidence from the shop floor with an element of consulting a crystal ball thrown in.

As this information is mission critical to our clients we provide an automated method of analysing mechanical refrigeration plant and display cases availability in real time, presenting the results in the form of simple web based status reporting dashboard for our clients.

This availability data may be analysed from an estate, regional, divisional and individual site level. Further, the data is capable of being analysed to determine the service delivery performance of service contractors in real time. Additionally long term metrics on individual manufacturers equipment reliability and performance can be ascertained.


Clients who have adopted our refrigeration availability monitoring and reporting service have demonstrated significant operational and revenue savings by using the service to pro-actively drive significant improvement in the reliable operation of their refrigeration plant.
