How our smart keg management software works

Orion is an award-winning, low-power digital data network consisting of specially-designed gateways and tags. Smart tags are attached to kegs and containers to ensure their safety at every stage of their journey. Tags report into the network, which sends the data through to your bespoke dashboard. The result of this advanced keg tracking system is total coverage, visibility and control.
