Rational launches updated ConnectedCooking app
Upgrade can enhance effective kitchen management and inspire creativity
Rational is launching a comprehensive update of its free ConnectedCooking app, the digital kitchen management system first introduced five years ago.
“Connectivity has gained a lot of traction with our customers over the past 24 months,” says Adam Knights, marketing director of Rational UK. “Operators are embracing the benefits that digital technology can bring. Our latest version of the ConnectedCooking app features a new user interface designed to make navigation easier and faster.”
The first thing that users will notice about the 2022 ConnectedCooking app is the revised start page, which ensures the very latest content, such as new recipes and videos, appear automatically. Meanwhile another key feature, the search function, has been expanded to make it as comprehensive and user-friendly as possible.
One of ConnectedCooking’s most popular features is the global recipe library, which is constantly being updated with new ideas to inspire creativity. Meanwhile, when it comes to users’ own recipes, the app’s latest version makes it even easier to create and upload them to their cooking systems, and works with dictation and direct image recording.
ConnectedCooking gives users and their service providers an overview of all networked Rational cooking systems which, with the help of the app, they can access directly. HACCP data can be checked and downloaded, and equipment, application and cleaning details can be viewed. The app can show if a cooking system is not operating correctly, warning service providers and managers in advance of potential component failure, thus minimising downtime.
“The launch coincides with ConnectedCooking’s fifth anniversary,” says Knights. “The app underlined Rational’s position as the pioneer in terms of utilising digitalisation to enhance kitchen efficiency. Since then, ConnectedCooking has continued to evolve and is now synonymous with Rationals dedication to customer service and added value”.
The revised ConnectedCooking app is available free of charge via Google Play or App Store.
