So here at Simplex, we offer 3 tips that can help your equipment last longer, while reducing business inconveniences. Better business for you, better business for us – creating win-win situations.
Tip 1: Regular Maintenance & Servicing of the Equipment
Like all good cars, equipments too, have engine and parts that requires tender loving care. Regulars servicing after a certain mileage (usage), would help extend the lifespan of the equipment. It also identifies potential wear and tear parts and breaks up your expenses for machine care – helps with business cash flows. At Simplex, our pioneer food equipment 24/7 monitoring system ECOSYS can help cloud base all your equipment servicing schedule, maintenance and usage details/frequency so that you can time your maintenance scheduling of the equipment. Planning and making provisions for equipment maintenance costings can help especially if your business is on a tight budget.
Tip 2: Regular Calibration of the Equipment
What does it mean by calibration? Equipment calibration essentially allows consistency of the food prepared and cooked by the equipment. This prevents inconsistency with food preparation and cooking, and ensures that your clients and customers gets the same food taste and texture every single visit at your restaurant or venue. This is an often overlooked segment of many business owners as they assume that all equipments are fail-proof. But like a car, (as you can see, we really like our cars), sometimes we also need it to be calibrated so that it can travel faster, smoother and don’t break down (that embarrassment and inconvenience!!). At Simplex, we also offer equipment calibration services, where our sales technicians will visit on-site and re-calibrate the equipment. The frequency of it depends on usage. Again, ECOSYS can plan calibration of your equipment as well!
Also, calibration also entails software and recipes updates for certain products (may come with a fee). If you are looking at creating a new menu for your restaurant without buying new equipment, wouldn’t it be an awesome idea if your current equipment can do that for you? Again, calibration increases the longevity and expands on the usage of your equipment without you incurring much additional costs! GREAT GREAT IDEA!!
