Vancouver, BC – March 5, 2018 – HealthSpace Data Systems Ltd. (the “Company” or “HealthSpace”) (CSE:HS) (Frankfurt:38H) (OTC:HDSLF) is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative quality control and customer experience application for restaurants that will help improve the overall health, safety and standards for food establishments across North America.
HealthSpace has teamed up with Keboola Data Services Inc., a data analytics solutions provider, and Xotec Solutions Corp., a technology company that provides customer engagement software. This collaboration will enhance HealthSpace’s current self-inspection solution, HealthSpace CS Pro, by integrating customer retention applications and health department inspection results. The application will enable restaurant operators to seamlessly compare and track their internal health and safety practices with data analyticsfrom government regulators as well asthe general public through customer feedback.
This new application takes advantage of an increasing trend with public sector regulators to be more proactive in assisting the private establishments they monitor and license. The goal is for the establishments to better manage their own operations in order to reduce the risk of food borne illnesses.
HealthSpace is working with certain government health department clients on a pilot project that will encourage private restaurant establishments to integrate the HS CS Pro platform into their existing quality assurance program. By integrating HS CS Pro into the daily operations, a restaurant operator can perform quality checks on the full spectrum of their business. When the health department performs a routine inspection, the results are immediately uploaded to the app so management can easily compare their internal results with what the regulator isfinding. This has significant value for restaurant chains where management can have third party verification of what their operators are doing without employing outside auditors. Additionally, correlating inspection information directly with internal quality control activity will have a significant impact on improving practices in the establishment, thereby improving public safety.
The application’s customer engagement component allows operators to engage with their customers on a more frequent basis. It provides an opportunity to solicit customer experience feedback, communicate about upcoming events and specials and offer loyalty program benefits. All this via a smartphone app customers can download.
HealthSpace president, Joe Willmott stated, “This is the first application that combines internal audits with health inspections and customer experience to provide a complete, operational picture for food service managers in what is a $900 Billion dollar industry in North America alone.”
This next phase of advancements for HS CS Pro is being developed with the blockchain in mind. Once HealthSpace’s blockchain solutions are commercially available, the CS Pro analytics dashboard will become part of the interface that drives user interaction. This will result in a blockchain network capable of delivering advanced analytics that both regulators and private industry operators will need inside of a distributed network.
