Comcast’s MachineQ Wins Gold Award for IoT Innovation in the 15th Annual 2023 Golden Bridge Awards®
MachineQ, a Comcast Company, announced today that they received a 2023 Gold Award for IoT Innovation in the 15th Annual 2023 Golden Bridge Awards®. The 15th Annual 2023 Golden Bridge Awards celebrates organizations that have demonstrated outstanding achievements, innovation, and excellence across various industries.
The award recognizes MachineQ’s IoT-based temperature monitoring offering, which provides benefits to customers in numerous industries, including food services. It enables customers to automate repetitive temperature monitoring and logging processes required for food safety in real-time, which can help reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses, decrease food loss, streamline compliance reporting, and enable employees to focus on customers rather than performing manual temperature checks. This is MachineQ’s third award win this year for its temperature monitoring solution.
MachineQ's device-to-cloud solution includes the MQflex multi-sensor device and magnetic mounting bracket to automate temperature readings inside commercial refrigerators and freezers, overcoming signal penetration and installation challenges found in retail and food services environments. The MQflex was designed and built in-house by MachineQ for proven resiliency at every level of operation. Leveraging LoRaWAN® technology, the device’s signal penetrates the metal exterior of refrigerators for reliable data collection with an extended battery life. The purpose-built magnetic mounting brackets are installed with industrial strength magnets and a stainless-steel ball chain for reinforcement, which helps to reduce the risk of dislodgment from daily operations that could affect accurate temperature readings.
By using these devices to help automate routine temperature monitoring and logging tasks, staff in quick service restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants, and even lab environments can gain back valuable time to focus on higher value tasks.
“It’s an honor to be recognized with a Gold Golden Bridge Award in IoT Innovation for our digital temperature monitoring capabilities,” said Bryan Witkowski, Head of Product and Strategy at MachineQ. “Restaurants and hospitality organizations continue to look for opportunities to help them improve their food safety and operations. We provide a scalable IoT platform that not only supports temperature monitoring but can power additional use cases to help maximize ROI.”
This prestigious recognition program honors the trailblazers, disruptors, and visionaries who have pushed the boundaries of possibility and made significant contributions to their respective fields. The rigorous judging process involved over 350 industry experts from around the world, representing diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
“Congratulations to all the remarkable winners of the 2023 Golden Bridge Awards!
