"We provide Finnish hospitals with various blood products for treating patients. Our services also comprise recruiting blood donors, organising blood donation, collecting blood and testing the donated blood. All donated blood is transported to Helsinki, where whole blood is separated into red cells, platelets and plasma. From there we deliver blood products to our customers in Finland.
Both whole blood and blood products' transportation requires 100% controlled conditions. In Finland, an obligatory monitoring period for blood cells and platelets is year round, and for donated blood from November to March. Thanks to modern technology we can carry out monitoring effortlessly for all our deliveries year round."

“TempNet® provides us uninterrupted monitoring of real-time temperatures in storing and transporting dairy goods; this is a perfect tool to verify our quality.
In addition to temperature monitoring, it was also important for us to get route information for our refrigerated vehicles. Integrating the information into our system has streamlined our operations, as well as speeding up processes.
Veli-Tapani Perälä, Distribution Manager, Arla Oy
"TempNet® helps us to ensure that the temperatures in our cold rooms and freezers stay within the set thresholds. If something goes wrong, a text message is sent to our staff's mobile phones and then they can react in good time.
We are able to reduce the amounts of food waste, when corrective actions are done in time. Monitoring also helps to identify problems in our refrigerators and freezers. Automated documentation makes reporting to the regulatory authorities exceedingly easy. We have full access to the system anywhere and anytime; only an Internet connection is needed.”
Jani Rautapuro, Wholesale Manager, Wihuri Oy Aarnio
"Our 17 production kitchens and 60 catering kitchens produce 3.2 million meals per year for schools, nurseries, hospitals and home care. For example, our latest kitchen sends out over 5.000 portions per day.
We needed transparency and visibility for our most important processes. Our HACCP solution includes automated temperature sensors, mobile app and meal transportation monitoring. Once fully implemented, it replaces pen-and-paper documentation. Inspectors from Evira (Finnish Food Safety Authority) have continuous access to our data in the cloud service, enabling them to view exception reporting, anytime and anywhere."
Hannele Portman, Managing Director, Polkka - North Karelia Services Ltd, City of Joensuu
´"As today's food service operator, we have increasing responsibility for food safety and risk management, since self-monitoring and HACCP reporting cannot be outsourced. Continuous updating of the HACCP plan and the management of follow-up actions pose recurring challenges.
State-of-the-art solutions in self-monitoring are easy to use, smart and wireless. All information is easily collected in one place, where we can update it and keep track of operations anywhere and anytime. Automation helps in reminding us of HACCP tasks, which reduces human errors in the kitchens. Clear reporting is helpful for long-term analysis and follow-up, and enables us to make corrections to the process."
