Aleksia is a public utility providing foodservices for over 40.000 people in the Finnish community of Nurmijärvi. Aleksia’s services include daily meals for children in pre-schools and elementary schools, for employees of the community and for senior citizens at care facilities. In addition, Aleksia provides catering services for meetings and events.
– JAMIX streamlines restaurant operations by assisting us in preparing right amounts of food and odering right things at the right time, tells Teija Määttä who is the Food Production Advisor at Aleksia Food and Cleaning Services.
”Good and tasty food of high quality”
– We have 12 commissary kitchens, and in total there are 50 sites where food is served and consumed. We prepare 14.000 meals per day. Each kitchen used to have their own recipes and own ingredients, so the quality of food probably varied. Now we are able to produce food of uniform quality and everyone is aware of the ingredients a certain meal contains, explains Teija Määttä.
The program provides time savings while taking care of critical calculations
– It would be impossible to manage this number of kitchens and sites without a kitchen management software. The program saves time as it calculates order quantities for us. You don’t need to gather any paper sheets or notes and calculate what and how much needs to be ordered, summarizes Teija Määttä the benefits of the system.
Menu in a mobile application
– Thanks to the free JAMIX MENU mobile application our customers can browse the menus of schools and kindergartens on their smart phones. In addition to the menu content, ingredients and nutritional values are available in the application. Our kitchens that serve meals utilize the mobile application, as well – it works as a tool for them as it contains the latest and correct information about the food, says Määttä.
