LeanPath Zap food waste software lands in UK market

Written by: Geraldine Faulkner | Published:

UK-based Go Green Tomato has announced the availability of LeanPath Zap to the UK market. LeanPath Zap is a tablet-based solution that uses smart technology and cloud-based reporting services to monitor and prevent food waste.

LeanPath Zap provides real-time insight into which foods are headed for the trash or compost bin and why, according to Go Green Tomato. This helps to pinpoint changes to purchasing, production, menus that will prevent the foods from being wasted in the future. The process of measuring also engages employees directly in the waste-prevention effort, arming them with immediate feedback and a tally of their waste prevention successes. The Zap solution is designed by LeanPath, the creators of the foodservice industry's first automated food waste tracking system in 2004 and specialists in smart food waste metering solutions.

LeanPath Zap runs on standard Android tablets and clients typically mount the devices in central locations. Staff members use the tablet to record all food that's going to be discarded, answering a short set of questions about what it is and why it's going in the waste bin. Operations can either weigh waste using an existing digital scale they own or record by quantity. The data is transmitted wirelessly to the LeanPath Online analytics dashboard, where chefs and managers view interactive, real-time reports, set up custom e-mail alerts, and receive regular e-mail summary reports which highlight the economic value of food waste and use algorithms to spotlight key wasted foods and loss scenarios.

"LeanPath Zap is the most flexible and affordable option for food waste tracking in the UK market," said Brian Quinn, co-founder of Go Green Tomato. "The simplicity of the tablet, coupled with the powerful real-time, roll-up reporting capability offered only by LeanPath, provides the best solution for caterers looking to cut food waste in half."

LeanPath Zap starts at £69/month for a basic standardised version and £149/month for a customised version where customers can specify unique food types, food costs, and more.
