BETTER MANAGEMENT OF RESOURCES
WISE Logistics manages the flow and preparation of food and delivering meal services for city or county detention facilities, state or federal prisons.
“We wanted to ensure a smooth transition to the new system, so we began by focusing on outgoing orders first. Once that was up and running, we tackled inventory tracking and control. System implementation took 10 months from start to finish. We had absolutely no disruption in operations.”
“We needed an automated WMS system to help us solve problems with our inventory control, performance levels within our warehouses, and space utilization issues in multiple locations. Royal 4 worked with our IT team to ensure a smooth integration with our Navision ERP system.”
“Being a food manufacturer operating on lean principles with complex distribution we required a tightly integrated system that would be able to scale out to all of our locations. We are happy with our decision I am pleased to endorse this fine organization to any company looking for supply chain services.”
Simplify Complex Operations
Food services in city, county, state, or federal detention centers is a complex operation governed by strict rules of safety, sanitation, security, and supervision. In most locations, county staff is required to directly supervise inmate workers in the preparation of food, service of meals, and the cleaning and sanitation of food service equipment and facilities. In addition to supervision, staff must also educate working inmates in proper food handling techniques and sanitation in accordance with Federal, State and Local Health Code and statutes governing the recall and reporting for contaminated food products.
Maintain Food Compliance
It is common to employ sanitarians to regularly inspect all kitchen facilities and train the production staff on food safety and compliance with all food rules and regulations. In larger facilities, a registered dietician may be on staff to create the menus and modified diet menus, and provides dietary guidance for the health and welfare of inmates. Food Service staff are trained to properly supervise the preparation and service of medical and religious diets which have become common in today’s diverse society.
More Efficient Management
Replace all paper and spreadsheet systems used to manage food handling, storage, and preparation in a main facility or satellite operations. One area to extract increased efficiency is applying WISE Logistics to the process and material handling of food products, inmate worker management, and meeting regulatory guidelines including food safety and recall legislation recently approved or anticipated. Service of meals generally includes all inmates housed in the central facility, which also involves meals and food related support for work crew and work release programs.
