Checkit Launches in the U.S.

Checkit today announces the launch of its US operations.

Checkit incorporates work management and automated monitoring, continually capturing data points on the organization’s performance, while operational insight turns data into intelligent, useful information. It is used to manage and audit all routine duties including food safety, equipment monitoring, maintenance checks, health and safety, cleaning and operational management.

This technology provides a proven way to address the needs of organizations to ensure that the work of service and field staff is performed consistently, easily and to a high standard.

Checkit has established a base of clients with global businesses including Compass, Sodexo and the Merlin Group, as well as working with leading UK businesses such as John Lewis Partnership and Center Parcs leisure resorts. With its US operation up and running, its aim will be to bring this experience to food service chains, hotels and contract catering and soft FM, with a focus on helping them to improve:

  • Revenue: by more consistently delivering intended service experience & freeing up time to focus on customers
  • Productivity: by automating repetitive checks and streamlining front-line work & improving management efficiency
  • Risk: from improved compliance, enforcement and visibility

Checkit USA will operate out of a sales and service base in Santa Fe Springs, California, and will have access to the infrastructure and resources of its corporate parent, Elektron Technology plc, which has a well-established US operation.

According to German Casillas, Vice President of Americas: “We see great potential in the United States market. There is a clear need, with many operations still poorly served by unsuitable or paper-based operational systems.  We estimate that US food service market alone has the potential to develop to be worth over $1 billion annually as technology adoption grows.”
