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.

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

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

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

Very Self explanatory, puts you in to a routine with daily checks rather quickly.

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.

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

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.

So far we have had nothing but a great experience with Fresh Cheq. It is super easy to use.

Pros: The ease of use is probably the best quality. It is super simple to record the temperatures, and also to change the things being temped when you need to. For a restaurant like ours that changes the menu every few weeks, this is very hellpful.

Cons: Really the only thing I don't like is that once you type in a temperature there is not a way to go back and change a temperature once recorded. When you have a perfect streak going, it's really sad when you accidentally hit a number a get a failing score for a 14 degree temp, when you meant to type in 144!

Overall: It's a great way to record temperatures for safe food handling!!!

Vendor Response

by FreshCheq on February 26, 2018

Hi Tyler, thank you for your review. The platform does not allow temps to be changed so that there is a higher level of accountability. But, we don't want you to lose your streaks, so if you type in a temp in error, just reach out to me and I will correct it so that your streak stays intact!

Pros: No paper trail, allows multiple ppl to use it, can look up how many you have missed

Cons: Need to go on a computer to see what days you have missed. Hard to read it on the phone.

If you type in the wrong temp you can't go back and change it

Overall: It's really nice and fast. We used to have to do it all by paper and this is more convienant

Spencer,

Thank you. We have added some functionality that will allow you to go back and make a change if you made a mistake on a temperature. Please contact us and we will walk you through the process.

Also, we are working on some other functionality we would like to show you. Please come see us at the Pizza Ranch Summer meeting. I am sure you will be impressed.

Multiple reports to break down check/log usage.

Pros: FreshCheq is very easy to use and has been a huge help to get our temp logs more consistent. I love that it will send you a reminder text before you are about to miss a log. That helps ensure that they get done and are not forgotten about

Cons: If we close due to weather or a holiday, we have to manually turn every log off for the day and then go back and turn them on for the next week. Would be nice if there was an easier way to do that.

Pros: This is a very effective way to report temps and inspect the restaurant throughout the day. It is efficient in comparison to pen and paper. Saves printing copies daily which saves ink and paper.

Pros: I love how organized it keeps us. both with making sure they are getting done but also accountability so they are true numbers. being able to see exactly who did what check at what time helps us be more accurate.

Cons: it is clunky on tablets. Especially when setting up lists and what order you would like to view items. Also hard to pull items off your list. we have LTOs that are constantly moving and getting any line check changed is a hassle.

Overall: making sure i am able to hold my managers accountable for what temps they are recording and making sure they are checking each item.

Pros: Ease of use, speeds up line checks, holds staff accountable. Pro has to be 100 characters...come on.

Cons: Cannot operate offline, there are comparable products that allow up to three days of storage when no internet is accessible. Occasionally the line check will be completed and logged within the time frame but a notification is still sent out and it is logged as an additional log.

Overall: Knowledge of what is going on in restuarants I am not currently in.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. Please contact me immediately should you experience any software bugs. We have our developer on standby 24/7 for any technical issues. In development, we considered allowing offline logging, but our beta testers agreed that offline logging would diminish the accountability factor that FreshCheq brings to our customers. I will reach out to you personally to make sure that your logs are functioning correctly.

use it everyday. helps us to keep food hot and fresh

Pros: We love FreshCheq. It completely changed the way we keep our temp logs. The reminders keep us accountable, which is wonderful. It's great being able to see what our food waste is costing us, down to the penny.

Cons: The only downfall is that we're unable to go in and edit a temperature after it's been entered if someone hits the wrong button.

Cons: Not being able to go back in and reset times for our temperatures. It would be a nice feature to be able to go back in and back log our HAACP cooking logs so we could track and entr at the end of our shifts

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.

Overall: Two years use in a multi-location restaurant franchise.

I have found it easy to keep and access all records pertaing to temperature checks.

Pros: It's nice to have the ability to have shift tools in the palm of your hands especially as all aspects of a store seem to be turning that way.

Cons: The reporting system is slow and clunky. It is difficult to utilize the program to fix issues that you see as the only way to "pass" a selection is to say how you fixed it.

Overall: FreshCheq has grown and become more user friendly. I think there are still some design pieces that need to be implemented however they are responsive to change and I can see them ironing out those kinks.

Also, we are working with Buffalo Wild Wings corporate to add some new features that will benefit all FreshCheq customers.

Our development pipeline is driven by our customers needs. I look forward to talking with you.

Pros: The app is relatively easy to use to perform each task.

Cons: Needing to put a PIN to perform each of the tasks involved. Once signed in, it would make sense to be able to navigate from task to task without needing to re-enter a PIN.

Overall: We use it for food quality line checks. Easily able to go from product to product cuts down on time vs. other platforms that malfunction or take time processing.

Adam,

Thank you for your review. Please give us a call, 1-855-581-7747. The PIN is there so multiple user can use the same tablet in the restaurant. However, if this is creating a problem and you assign the task to one employee or compete the task yourself, we can show you how to turn the PIN off for convenience.

Pros: The reminders are the best feature. They help to insure our products are the appropriate temperature to ensure safety.

Cons: The app logs you out fairly quickly. Our people use their mobile devices with the program and they have to log in each time with their user name and password. Having a remember me on this device option would solve this issue.

Overall: Saves time by keeping the records in one place.

Hi Bruce,
Thanks for your review. We appreciate your business. Our User's manual that is emailed to every user has instructions for adding an icon onto any smart device which will keep users logged in for 8 hours. You should only have to log in once per day. I will contact you directly to make sure that your employees are using FreshCheq in the most efficient way and not having to waste time logging in.

Pros: I like that there is no paperwork to keep track of and I can have access to my records at anytime. Everything is stored in one spot and no going back through paperwork.
