Schaerer introduces smartwatch integration

Schaerer smartwatch technology

Swiss coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer has collaborated with wearable technology company Turnpike to offer smartwatch integration for its smart coffee machines. Users can now connect Schaerer’s Internet of Things to the smartwatch software to receive updates on upcoming service tasks direct to their wrists.

“The collaboration with Turnpike underlines our ambition to inspire the world of coffee enjoyment,” says Sandro Bianchi, Customer Success Manager at Schaerer.

“By connecting our coffee machines to Turnpike’s technology, we are helping our customers to optimise their coffee business and at the same time reduce the workload of their employees. In addition, we support them in creating a special coffee moment for their customers.”

The new application is designed to increase staff efficiency by reducing the need to check the machine at regular intervals. It also increases machine availability by telling employees immediately when ingredients require refilling. Machine users even have the ability to trigger a notification to the employee’s smartwatch if they need help.

“We are delighted to be realising this smartwatch integration solution together with Schaerer. The combination of our wearable technology and Schaerer’s coffee machines sets new standards in retail in terms of efficiency and service quality. Our goal: a seamless collaboration between man and machine to create an unrivalled experience,” says Carl Norberg, Co-founder of Turnpike.

The technology was first trailed with convenience shop and petrol station operator Circle K, a long-term Schaerer customer with outlets in the United States and Europe. Schaerer started working with Circle K in 2018 and now has 1800 Coffee Soul models across its sites.
