Get Smart - IoTen Smart
Making a coffee maker smart
Why connect a coffee maker to the internet? First of all, because it’s easy, with IoTen.
Second, by reporting your usage to the cloud, the manufacturer can suggest re-ordering capsules before they actually run out. It’s a great way for a brand to keep in touch with consumers in a way that provides real value and convenience.
However, the bigger story is that we can also connect the IoTen to industrial coffee machines, the kind you’d find in a restaurant. That’s where a connected solution really shines. It enables the manufacturer tools to plan coffee delivery to achieve maximum timeliness and efficiency so that the restaurant never runs out of coffee yet delivery trucks don’t go out half empty. It also provides data for optimizing service schedules, so that coffee machines get cleaned before the taste of the coffee begins to deteriorate.
