Cambridge based technology company Checkit Limited ("Checkit"), a subsidiary of Elektron Technology plc (AIM: EKT, "Elektron"), today launches its Work Management solution at the Restaurant Show. This is one of the most significant product launches in the Elektron Group's history, representing an investment in development to date of £2.3m. The product is set to replace the widespread use of pen and paper amongst customer facing, shop floor and field staff to track compliance with internal protocols and external regulation. This will provide a much needed boost to front line productivity and control while easing the burden of compliance. Checkit has selected the food industry as the first market in which to launch this product. In this sector in the UK alone approximately half a million sites could potentially benefit from its use, the vast majority of which currently rely on manual record keeping. In due course Elektron believes that the market opportunity will exceed £200 million per annum in the UK food industry alone.
