Keg Tracking System

Protect your beer kegs from theft with real-time visibility and tracking throughout the supply chain

Visionist Consulting

Keg tracking for breweries & distilleries

Steel beer kegs are valuable assets at risk of theft, damage, poor handling and maintenance costs. With so many imported alcohol products, supply chains can be very long and involve a number of third parties. This further increases the likelihood of theft, damage and accidental loss. The best way to protect them from theft, loss and mishandling is to increase the visibility of their location and condition throughout the supply chain. This can be achieved using Smarter Technologies’ keg tracking solutions enabled by the Orion Data Network. Our keg tracking system delivers unparalleled real-time visibility and security for your beer kegs and containers wherever you are importing or exporting, all over the world.

Smarter Technologies’ keg tracking solutions

Enabled by our Orion Data Network, our beer keg tracking and tagging system enables real-time, 24/7 visibility over your entire fleet. This allows you to make informed supply chain decisions and protect your valuable assets. Our keg tracking system is designed to track containers, kegs and beer gas cylinders of all types and material. You get accurate data on the location, status and condition of all your beer kegs at all times.

Comprehensive keg tracking

Along with location data, Smarter Technologies’ keg tracking system reports on a range of business intelligence data based on parameters you can choose and program into the system.

  • Tag containers and kegs separately so that you always know the location of your individual assets
  • Add liquid level, temperature, tamper, shock, movement and tilt sensors to combat risks such as theft, accidental damage and overheating

Our tracking capabilities aren’t limited to kegs; almost any asset or application that requires real-time data reporting can join the network.

How the Keg Tracking System Works

Smarter Technologies’ Orion Data Network is an award-winning, low-power, long-range digital data network consisting of specially-designed gateways and tags. These tracking devices can be installed overtly as a deterrent, or covertly and invisible. Tags are attached to kegs and containers to ensure their safety at every stage of their journey. Tags report; gateways listen and send the data through to your bespoke dashboard. 

For truly comprehensive coverage, we have designed three types of gateway and three types of tag:

  1. Ethernet interfaces for convenient plug and play with your brewery’s existing internet infrastructure
  2. Mobile gateways that run directly over the Orion network so you have a clear view of your goods in transit
  3. An independent satellite option for when your brewery and distillery assets are in a remote location

The result of this advanced keg tracking system is total coverage, visibility and control.

With your bespoke management dashboard, you can have easy access to your data at all times. Reports, alerts and alarms can be programmed to arrive instantaneously on any connected device.
