Simple and quick installation of your smart fridge

This is one of the strong points of the connected fridge: its installation. The digital canteen takes up no more space than a conventional fridge. By opting for this latest generation solution, you offer healthy meals and a practical solution while promoting exchange between employees - all on just one square meter.

By replacing your traditional canteen with a connected collective catering, you also reduce the fixed costs that would require an entire infrastructure with canteen workers, kitchen appliances, catering room, etc.

Easy management of your fridge

That's also an important advantage: your connected fridge is autonomous. With this solution, management is simplified since payment is automatic and inventory in real time with a label for each product. There is no risk of stock shortage since you receive alerts when a dish runs out. This digital solution is offered by specialized companies that provide supply, menu development and maintenance in case of problems.

Employees fulfilled thanks to the connected fridge

The connected fridge offers homemade and local small dishes for a healthy diet. Your employees no longer need to run outside to order a low-quality sandwich since they have everything they want right at their company. The connected fridge also remains at their disposal all day long, no need to run to the canteen between noon and two, the fridge remains open.

The limits of a smart fridge

While digitizing your canteen brings many benefits, it can be complicated to implement in a large company. If the number of employees is too large, it is wise to add a counter offer to regulate the influx of employees at lunchtime.

There is no doubt that this smart solution will delight start-ups and human-sized companies that will find in the connected fridge a solution that combines healthy food, user-friendliness and simplification of the company canteen.
