Posted by Kelsius
Kelsius, the Donegal/Belfast technology firm, secures €1 million in funding with the Quinn (formerly Superquinn) Family investing alongside existing investors Enterprise Equity Northern Ireland and the Western Development Commission. The investment round will enable the Company to build on the significant market traction in both the Healthcare and Food Service Industries.
Belfast and Donegal-based company Kelsius has completed a new VC-led investment round injecting €1 million of capital into the Company. Eamonn Quinn (former Deputy Chairman Superquinn) has joined the board as non-executive chairman. Existing shareholders, Enterprise Equity Northern Ireland, the Western Development Commission and angel investor Art McGann also participated in the funding round.
Kelsius supplies technology based automation systems for food and drug safety and regulatory compliance to the food services industry and the healthcare [hospital] sector.
Current paper-based systems require repetitive manual monitoring and record keeping. CoolCheck temperature monitoring automates these tasks. Because the system utilizes systematic and preventative regimes it means that regulatory processes are fully followed. All data is stored electronically. Alerts of non-conformance are generated automatically by the system and sent as text messages to supervisors / managers. Ultimately, this results in a more efficient and cost-effective process with significant labour savings. CoolCheck offers real-time visibility of compliance and non-conformance's across Hospitals, Laboratories and Clinics in Ireland and the UK.
Based in Belfast and Donegal, Kelsius develops and supplies computer-based automation for implementing food safety rules and regulations and compliance for hospitality and retail sectors and for the hospital sector. Utilising its world-class wireless sensor technology and cloud-based data hosting and processing, the Kelsius system improves food safety and compliance as well as reducing the labour associated with these activities.
Kelsius systems are used in approximately 300 food services and hospitality outlets in Ireland as well as in the pharmacies and blood banks in more than 100 hospitals and NHS trusts in the UK and also in Ireland.
