HAT turns plant floor data into actionable, process-improving, real-time intelligence. This advanced data collection and analysis system provides users with consistent, reliable, and provable data in an easy-to-use format. HAT focuses on proactively controlling processes and preventing failures so companies can guarantee their products meet their company's and customers' standards for safety and quality.

  • All data can be viewed in real-time, including failure ranking reports, pre-shipment review, and compliance reports.
  • Data can also be shown on charts and graphs enabled with SPC analysis and Six Sigma capabilities.
  • You may use the data to analyze loss, track root causes of problems, and prove traceability from receipt to consumer.
  • Checks can be configured per your company's HACCP, HIMP, USDA, FDA, QA, QC, and SOP/GMP specifications.
  • Associates may collect weight, size, temperature, grading, and defect data on the plant floor as well as perform yield, retention, and AQL checks.
  • Janam's XM Series rugged mobile computers are certified for the HAT system. The software can also be used on touch-screen, hand-held, or tablet computers.

Janam's antimicrobial version of its popular XM Series is an ideal mobile device for CAT Squared and other partners serving the food industry with solutions designed to improve food safety, streamline operations and increase overall product quality. The Janam XM66AM and XM60+AM rugged antimicrobial mobile computers are the only handhelds in their category that offer "whole device" antimicrobial coverage. The entire unit – not just the plastic housing – is protected by an antimicrobial coating that effectively kills microorganisms.

"Rugged handheld computers are only valuable if workers use them," said Harry B Lerner, Janam's CEO. "Comfort, speed and weight matter. We are excited to partner with CAT Squared who clearly recognizes how important it is for the entire solution to fit the needs of the task at hand." Janam offers the only rugged antimicrobial handhelds that deliver a full 3.5" color display yet weigh less than 10 ounces. While the light, ergonomic design makes the handheld easy to carry, the relatively large display provides superior viewability, making it a welcome tool on any plant floor.

As our global population continues to grow exponentially and the need for affordable, safe, quality food increases with it, more innovations in food technology will have to be made to meet the demand. The combined strengths of CAT Squared and Janam is producing groundbreaking results.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
"We view the cloud not really as a specific technology but as a way of doing business and that way of doing business is transforming the way software, infrastructure and services are being delivered to business," explained Matthew Rosen, CEO and Director at Fusion, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
