Heineken – New Beer System

Heineken was looking for an IoT solution to monitor beer stocks so that they can improve their logistics process and increase quality. We (re)developed a remote monitoring system that helps them achieve this.

The project

Heineken had a new beer system with which bars and restaurants could easily switch from kegs to chilled beer tanks, thus making the use of CO2 cylinders redundant. This system also introduced other innovations such as remote monitoring of data via telemetry. The system needed to improve, which is why Heineken asked us to significantly improve the remote monitoring system and take over its operational management.

The problem

Implementing IoT can be a complicated process. Challenges include connectivity, power, security, and integration. The IoT system that Heineken had was underperforming and did not meet their expectations. We helped redesign their IoT system to make it stable, reliable, future-proof and operationally manageable. 

The solution

The system we (re)developed for Heineken consists of sensors. They measure the beer volume, temperature, and other quality parameters, which are sent to our user-friendly interface. All measured data is instantly available in the new and secure web portal.  

We replaced the user interface with a user-friendly web portal and implemented software changes to increase reliability. The data displayed on the web portal is now up-to-date, reliable and shows each user the data of interest. This allows for immediate action if the beer is running low somewhere or the temperature deviates. 

The key benefits

  • Quality is now accurately monitored, and any deviations are immediately detected.  
  • Deliveries to outlets are more efficiently and accurately planned. 
  • Cost saving in logistics.

Software improvements 

We have significantly improved the software of the remote monitoring system. These improvements ensure that Heineken receives reliable data. With this information, they can monitor quality accurately and plan the delivery of beer to outlets in a more efficient way. Furthermore, due to its user-friendliness, the web portal is also used a lot more by the employees.
