Scanomat have become the first coffee machine manufacturer to introduce iBeacon technology into their products. The location based technology for iOS will allow Scanomat to send messages direct to end users via the TopBrewer app.
TopBrewer originally turned heads when it became the first professional coffee machine to be controlled via smartphone or tablet. This latest development from the Danish manufacturer has been launched in conjunction with a new TopBrewer app version 3.0
The latest version of the TopBrewer app for iOS will push communications directly to users smartphones as they approach a nearby TopBrewer that has the iBeacon hardware installed. A message will appear on the smartphone home screen allowing users to open the app directly and personalise their drink with just a couple of clicks.
Another unique feature of the app is that it now includes a queuing system whereby users are placed in a line and told their current position via the app, ideal for busy environments with multiple users.
The new iBeacon technology for TopBrewer has been exclusively launched in a new TopBrewer Cafe which opened in Copenhagen last week. The technology is expected to roll out to other TopBrewer client sites over coming months but is available now for new customers looking to purchase a TopBrewer.
A number of retailers are said to be testing iBeacon technology which uses Bluetooth to actively target consumers at a close proximity.
