Our customer FRANKE Coffee Systems AG is Winner 2021 of the Smart IoT Award of the University of St.Gallen.

We are proud to have laid the foundation for these business services with our IoT platform. Our employees worked with Franke to develop the backend services in the Azure IoT Cloud and continue to develop them.

"The Franke Digital Services solution uses the example of the smart coffee machine to show how customer-centricity can work properly, both by showing a lot of potential for improvement on the supplier side and by enabling a more individualized coffee experience on the end customer side. The jury particularly emphasized the extension of the classic product sales business through smart services. A key issue with regard to business value is the improved availability of resources (e.g. coffee beans, milk) and consistent quality processes (cleaning the machine, etc.). Continuous monitoring can increase coffee sales by about 15%. On the other hand, operational costs can be reduced by a similar amount. This change thus also enables Franke's business customers to benefit from new revenue models (coffee-as-a-service), central management of beverage menus (incl. recipes) and new services (e.g. advertising on the coffee machine screen, touch-free beverage selection)."
