Better when connected: SmarterSlicing by Bizerba
The trend towards multi-branch operations in the food trade presents a whole new set of challenges to fresh foods counters – such as frequent shift changes with different operators, complex systems and high throughput volumes. This is where Bizerba's SmarterSlicing technology can step in: Our networked slicer solutions simplify the various processes, automatically monitor cleaning, sharpening and maintenance cycles, while offering transparency from a central location on the slicer’s status and utilization. The SmarterSlicing concept is based on three pillars: operator support, management support and intelligent support.
Team support at the fresh foods counter
A touchscreen with indicators for cleaning, sharpening and maintenance provides much needed information on upcoming intervals. They can be customized so that sharpening and maintenance cycles can be scheduled for after hours. In addition, the sharpening indicator automatically determines the optimal time for the next sharpening interval. This is based on your daily work schedule. Designed for best cleanliness, slicing quality and maximum machine availability, allowing your team to fully focus on the customer.
Process optimization from administration
The slicers are networked with the administration for inventory and recording purposes. Among other things, this facilitates a multi-branch overview of all slicers, showing their status and utilization, providing a solid basis for needs-based process optimization and planned investments.
Optimized maintenance and smarter service
Intelligent support includes, for example, automated monitoring of maintenance intervals. Service calls become considerably more efficient thanks to the advance data exchange, which includes the ability to transmit unique error codes. Intelligent support minimizes downtime, saves costs and maximizes slicer availability.
