The Nordic catering giant Svensk Snabbmat has installed op5's products op5 Monitor and op5 Statistics to e.g. secure the correct temperature in their cold storage rooms all over Sweden. Svensk Snabbmat also uses op5's products to facilitate statistics reporting to local municipal environment and health authorities. op5 supplies open source based network monitoring software for control and monitoring of IT systems and networks.

Svensk Snabbmat uses op5's product op5 Monitor to monitor its cold storage rooms to ensure that they hold the exact right temperature, and that the 'cold chain' remains unbroken all the way to the end consumers. With op5's solution Svensk Snabbmat obtains a centralised supervision of the cold storage rooms, with alarm functions to local security companies, repair staff and local storage managers. The alarms are sent by email and SMS.

There are strict health standards in place for cold storage rooms, fot them to hold the correct temperature for cooled and frozen products. In addition, there are large economic values at stake since discarded products due to erroneous cold and freeze temperatures can cost several hundred thousand kronor per room.

op5 Monitor has been installed at 16 of Svensk Snabbmat's 18 storage facilities. Svensk Snabbmat has also centrally installed op5 Monitor to supervise all of the company's servers within its entire IT system.

In addition, Svensk Snabbmat uses op5 Statistics to extract statistics of the cold storage rooms' temperatures and to be able to deliver this information directly to each of the municipalities' environment and health authorities, and fulfil their reporting requirements.
