Congratulations to PathSpot, Restaurant Technology Network's first-ever Start-Up Alley Winner from MURTEC 2020!

An amazing, timely solution and an even more impressive live, on-stage pitch from Co-Founder & CEO Christine Schindler, pushed this company to the top of the list with RTN's judges and live audience polling.

An ideal solution for turbulent times, PathSpot is a patented scanning device and data-driven tracking software ensures that every employee is washing their hands frequently and effectively. 

RTN's Start-Up Alley esteemed judges included Astrid Isaacs, VP of Restaurant Technology, Bloomin' Brands, Susan Lucas, SVP of Technology, Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants and John Robinson, Director of Retail Technology, Sonic Drive-In.
 
Judges toured Start-Up Alley, spending time with each exhibitor, experiencing solution demos and then cast their votes based on Innovation, Practicality, Implementation & Lifecycle. 
 
The additional top two (highly impressive!) finalists included Bbot, smart ordering allowing guests to order and pay on their phones without downloading an app, and Voltonix, an AI-based predictive analytics platform that helps track utilization of critical assets, monitor environmental conditions, and predict future failures. 
 
According to PathSpot, there are 48 million cases of foodborne illness each year, and 97% of Americans do not wash their hands properly. The PathSpot hand scanner gives food-handling team members real-time feedback on the effectiveness of handwashing. It also collects data that businesses can use to measure and improve handwashing compliance. PathSpot customers see an average 3x increase in handwashing and reduce instances of foodborne illness contaminants by 75% within just 30 days.
 
A big congratulations to, PathSpot, definitely one to watch in the restaurant space and well beyond.
