“Empower addresses two traditional barriers food producers face when investing in a facility management software: ease of use and cost,” said CERTUS president, John Coomes. “Today, smartphone simplicity is the standard and that was the driving force when we designed Empower. The CERTUS mission is to put smart pathogen environmental control at your fingertips with no additional cost or subscription fees.”
Providing robust facility management features to food producers of all sizes, Empower levels the playing field when it comes to environmental monitoring, while building trust with customers who expect the latest technology in food safety.
As an integral component of CERTUS’s in-house pathogen detection system, Empower software is installed on the Control Pad (9.7” iPad) that is a vital complementary component of the CERTUS System. The software guides technicians through daily testing protocol, including sample locations and step-by-step workflow directions. While sensitive customer data is securely stored in the CERTUS Detection Unit, Empower communicates wirelessly with the Detection Unit to initiate tests, monitor progress, record results, and alert stakeholders instantly with text and email messages.
