Automated beer line cleaning company Beer Piper has launched its BP4 system, a new piece of line cleaning technology that links to a mobile app which can control, track and report in real-time.
Described as a first of its kind in the UK, the system uses cloud-based technology to log when and who cleans the lines, and allows bar managers access to real time data via the web based portal and app, which can be downloaded onto a phone or tablet.
Beer Piper has developed the BP4’s portal and app to enable hospitality managers to deliver increased reportability contractibility, helping them to save money and waste.
The interactive tech, the team say, helps to improve accountability, which in turn makes running the bar more efficient. It is also said to eliminate the need for time consuming manual line cleans, meaning that staff members are free to get on with additional activities.
The app features educational training videos and has a troubleshooting section so users can identify and fix issues quickly. Additionally larger group customers can cheque in to see how their public houses are doing with regards to hygiene and line cleans.
Jeff Singer, commercial manager for Beer Piper, said: “Beer Piper has invested considerably into the BP4 system, to ensure that the cloud-based tech and app makes life easier, more efficient and works in a smarter way for hospitality managers and owners.
“Beer Piper systems also help bar managers reduce waste considerably, which equates to saving money – something that is crucial for the on-trade at present as it picks itself back up after the Covid-19 shutdowns.
“We work with a large number of hospitality owners and managers throughout the UK, from big chains, traditional pubs and craft beer taprooms, to restaurants, hotels and any type of venue that serves draught, and the feedback is always positive when our systems have been implemented.”
