Cool.it is a cold chain management technology platform that improves temperature control and transparency through every link in the cold chain—from food producers through transportation, warehousing, distribution and retail, according to Danfoss.
By collecting real-time temperature data and utilizing simple, easy-to-read dashboards—available on computers, mobile phones and tablets—the system facilitates the sharing of data and can help to “increase efficiency, reduce risk of food waste, and improve traceability”.
As an open platform, Cool.it is compatible with various manufacturer temperature monitoring solutions.
Danfoss is a manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, industrial, and water systems.
