Wi-Fi enabled machines deliver custom status updates and alerts
KIEL, WI – April 16, 2013 – Stoelting, a leading manufacturer of frozen treat equipment for the foodservice industry, introduces ConnectI2U.com, a subscriber website that monitors, tracks and reports on Stoelting machines equipped with IntelliTec2™ controls. The Wi-Fi enabled control has the ability to communicate anywhere in the world that has internet access, and is Stoelting’s newest technology engineered to improve operators’ bottom line and enhance machine performance.
The first of its kind in the frozen dessert equipment market, the ConnectI2U gathers statistical data throughout the day from an IntelliTec2™ control-equipped Stoelting machine and automatically sends notifications through a Wi-Fi connection via e-mail to a store owner, service company, and/or distributor. Notifications range from performance alerts to equipment error alerts.
In addition to automated alerts, which can be customized per account, a machine’s performance can also be accessed in real time by logging into ConnectI2U.com. On the ConnectI2U website a user-friendly dashboard allows you to see a machine’s performance, sales history and preventative maintenance, which can ultimately reduce equipment downtime and increase profitability. The technology also enables operators to receive service support and diagnostics remotely, rather than on site.
“Our engineering and product development teams continue to meet and exceed our objective to bring smart, efficient products to the market,” said Vice President and General Manager Bob Oonk. “Technology like the ConnectI2U and supporting equipment with Wi-Fi capability, is the next logical step in the Stoelting line of machines built with other industry-leading features, including IntelliTec2™ controls, the industry’s slimmest footprint, high efficiency compressors, and equipment that can be used for a variety of end products.”
