BeerTech, a company based in Scotland provides SmartCellar devices, which measure the temperature of beer inside kegs in pubs.
These devices, aimed at sustainability, turn off the air conditioning unit when not in use, in order to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
The devices were accompanied by a 10-year-old .NET based app that was able to send one email at a time telling a user how their device was performing.
BeerTech wanted a modern solution that would allow a user to monitor all of the pubs in their portfolio, for example, a large corporation that owns more than 300+ pubs across the United Kingdom.
HOW WE DEVELOPED THE SOLUTION
Understanding Requirements: We began with detailed interviews and workshops with the client to fully understand the problems with the existing system, their specific requirements, and their future goal.
Defining Scope: A project roadmap was laid out, detailing the features, functionalities, and technologies to be used. A timeline was set with milestones, ensuring alignment with the client's expectations.
User Experience (UX) Design: Crafting user personas and user journeys helped us in creating a design that resonated with the end-users — pub owners and managers. Wireframes were developed to visualize the app's structure.
User Interface (UI) Design: Using modern design principles, we created an intuitive interface, incorporating brand colors, icons, and visual elements that reflect the company's ethos of sustainability and efficiency.
Technical Design: Architecture and technology stack were carefully chosen to ensure scalability, security, and seamless integration with the existing smart seller devices.
