With two innovative tech leaders recognizing their shared strengths in restaurant safety and employee training, PathSpot Technologies, a real-time hand hygiene system, announced an ongoing partnership with Opus, a text message-based interactive training solution for employees.
The partnership will allow PathSpot, which won the Pitch Slam competition at MURTEC, to offer Opus’s mobile-first training solution to its customers, including restaurant owners and managers, to educate users on the hand scanning technology and enhance the onboarding experience. Similarly, the partnership will also provide hand hygiene data and trends to create targeted, data driven handwashing courses for Opus customers.
Respectively, PathSpot and Opus currently support thousands of restaurants nationwide by ensuring that proper hand hygiene and other health and safety standards are met, helping both employees and customers feel safe during the pandemic. The PathSpot Hand Scanner uses light-based detection to provide real-time feedback on the quality and effectiveness of every hand wash for restaurant staff. The scanner delivers results in less than two seconds if harmful contaminants are detected, so team members can take corrective action to prevent foodborne illness. Opus continues to refresh customer training programs in real time as laws and guidelines change, providing a wide range of interactive compliance training delivered over text message, which includes COVID training that complies with state and local guidelines.
“With public health at the center of the national conversation right now in the midst of the COVID crisis, restaurants need reliable tools and technology to keep compliant with rapidly changing guidelines and consumer expectations,” said PathSpot CEO and Co-Founder Christine Schindler. “PathSpot and Opus share a passion to help restaurants create sustainably safe environments for employees and customers, and we are excited to partner in this effort.”
