Procedures describe tasks and actions that must be completed to ensure
a business operates in the way it is meant to.

Sentinel is Food Horizon's electronic reporting system, designed to
enable food service businesses ensure procedures are followed
correctly every day.


Paper checks and records are converted to Sentinel's electronic format.
In daily use staff enter the required information into the Sentinel program on a PDA(s).
Information is uploaded from PDAs to Sentinel's secure website.
On the Sentinel website records can be checked from anywhere at anytime.


If it can be done on paper it can be done on Sentinel. Types of check include food safety, health & safety, quality, quantity, presentation - whatever is needed. Daily checks, management checks and audits can be included to provide an integrated system built around the daily activites of individual businesses.


Data is centralised and where it is needed to support management decisions.
Perfomance can be assessed without the need to travel to sites, saving time and money. And there is no paper to manage.
Managers can ensure safety procedures are followed correctly, minimising the risk of problems, ensuring legislative compliance and ‘proof of due diligence’.
Managers can ensure operational procedures are followed correctly and brand ‘promises’ delivered to the customer as intended.


Simple format that can be customised to meet specific needs and adjusted at anytime to accommodate changing processes.
Developed for the purpose and as easy to use as a mobile phone.
Checks are recorded with the time and date to ensure they are completed at the correct time.
When a 'fail' result is detected Sentinel highlights the problem and suggests appropriate corrective action(s) that should be taken.
Two way communication between PDAs and the Sentinel website.
Transfer of data from PDAs to the Sentinel website is wireless, by GPRS or WiFi.
Provides remote access to data wherever and whenever it is needed.
