Close the loop from Keg to Cloud with KegLink and Binary.Beer
IoT Keg Tracking & Draught Beer Management
Whether you work in brewing, distribution or keg rentals, keeping kegs active, serviceable and accountable is an ongoing challenge.
When kegs leave the warehouse, fleet managers are well accustomed to losing visibility until they eventually, hopefully, return. Stewardship is entrusted to downstream parties who have limited responsibility to return kegs in a timely manner, so wayward kegs are often “lost through the cracks” sitting idle for months or even years, attracting opportunistic theft.
When kegs go wayward they don’t get scanned, so traditional management solutions like RFID scanners, QR stickers and brewery platforms are of little benefit. I.e. The critical data is missing when you need it most! At Binary Beer, we pioneer Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that overcome this age-old information disconnect, closing the loop with live data to enable digital transformation across the draught beer industry.
KegLink™ is our core suite of IoT technologies that leverage 5G and proprietary geolocation solutions to solve the data disconnect between mobile kegs and the cloud. KegLink is the missing key that unlocks the data on which digital transformation and the Internet of Beer can be built. Brewery management systems can be “powered by KegLink” to augment their reports and workflows that drive existing brewery operations. If you’re a brewing SaaS provider, or working for a multinational brewing conglomerate with a complex ERP, let’s chat about integrating KegLink into your existing system.
Binary.Beer is our in-house draught beer insights platform, extending upon our KegLink IoT stack to unlock deep insights into all facets of draught beer management, from optimising logistics to driving sales and achieving sustainability goals. If you’re looking for ways to improve your draught beer operations, feel free to set up a demo account and see how the Binary.Beer platform can deliver deep insights around sales, freshness, logistics and sustainability for your organisation.
