Drew MunroUp Meals

When I saw the SMRT1 POD at the Ottawa show I exclaimed I need one of those! In 3 short months, the SMRT1 POD has serviced over 3700 client visits averaging 41 visits per day. Two-thirds of those visits fall outside 9-4 business hours, increasing the capacity and reach of the existing staff. We are so thrilled that the people who use the machine refer to it as “our machine” and have embraced the technology, we knew we needed more and have now launched a second machine in Sackville NB.
