Automatic Beer Line Cleaning Monitoring App Development [Case Study]

19 Apr 2022

Clean lines are integral to maintaining the quality of craft beer for brewers. Therefore, small and independent brewers devote a lot of time, effort & resources to make the best possible beverage for their consumers. That hard work can be ruined if the draught system/line cleaning and maintenance are not managed properly. And, with technological advances, the standardization of the cleaning process with mobile applications across multiple outlets can be made seamless.

Explore how Rishabh Software helped digitize the beer-line cleaning operations to free up staff to optimize work schedules and take on more engagements while enabling cost reduction for the draught beer operations.

Project Overview

An Ireland-based provider of automated beer-line cleaning equipment and beer dispense solutions was in pursuit of developing a compatible draught mobile solution to streamline line cleaning and re-engineer their existing web application. This would help improve staff productivity & increase sales. Their existing clientele encompasses brewers, stadium operators, pub companies, and other businesses in the hospitality industry across Europe.

Learn how Rishabh as their technology partner helped modernize the web app and created a mobile app to improve the effectiveness & efficiency of the line cleaning process.

Challenges

  • Incompatibility of the existing application with the firmware of the portable cleaning device
  • Lack of efficient data monitoring to verify clean beer lines
  • No accurate tracking of cleaning schedule and service activities
  • Difficulty in managing cleaning parameters data for user accounts, outlets, and more
  • Inaccurate synchronization of the recorded data with the web app posts the completion of the cleaning process

Solution

Our team followed a phase-wise implementation approach to ease out the line-cleaning operations. It was divided into two phases: 1) building a new mobile solution for Android & iOS devices and 2) re-engineering the existing beer-line cleaning app:

Phase-1: Assessment (AS-IS analysis) and app development

Based on a comprehensive requirement gathering & review of the current ecosystem of the business, our team developed mobile applications targeted at both iOS and Android devices.

It helped address:

  1. Authorized access through pin-based authentication
  2. Encryption of sensitive information such as passwords, tokens & more before being stored in the database
  3. Enabled Bluetooth-based data transfer communication between the mobile app and cleaning unit/machine

Phase-2: Application re-engineering

Our team enhanced the web application for administrative management, with the right configuration, and authorization. We helped them migrate the old app data to the new application such that it works seamlessly with the new database without affecting app performance. Further, it included the inclusion of extended features for the cleaning device.

We integrated the software with a wall-mounted device that provides real-time monitoring of beer-line cleaning sessions. Additionally, we assisted them with map functionality implementation on the dashboard that provides historic and real-time updates of the line cleaning activity including time, date, location, and the score for every line cleaned.

Benefits

  • The re-engineered application helped monitor and validate 12,000+ beer-line cleaning visits/month efficiently
  • Real-time data monitoring to standardize the beer-line cleaning process leads to delivering excellent beer quality
  • Improved cleaning solutions for the existing and new clientele
  • Low cost of ownership enabled higher business profitability
