Quantum Leap (QL) confirmed the announcement at this year’s Web Summit of its BeerDrive and BeerSpot a powerful upgrade for legacy beer storage and dispensing units.
“In the last 2 years we have been working very closely with some of the biggest names in the beer industry both in the B2B and B2C segments, such as Heineken and Sagres, and we heard what their main pain-points were, and so we identified 4 main problems, namely (1) the lack of agility in the way they monitored their B2B clients stock levels, (2) the constant risk of customers’ stock disruption scenarios, (3) often less than ideal barrel or tank refill delivery times, and (4) high logistics’ costs,” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL.
“We are excited to announce that we are bringing to the market 2 innovative solutions that help solving those issues and more,” he added.
Both BeerDrivetm and BeerSpottm leverage the power of IoT and embedded systems along with edge Ai, to enable a whole new level of convenience for both beer consumers, retailers and suppliers, by creating a new fully automated and real-time monitored order-from-device + door-delivery ecosystem.
The technology stack also includes an optional companion APP for the end user, and full API for integration in any 3rd party information system such as ERP, CRM, POS etc, for full 360º with the beer supplier’s accounting, logistics and delivery fleets. The solution is already in production in several Heineken and Sagres points of sale, and is set to hit the market with a lot of new features in Q3 2021.
