Self-Pour Leader Responds to Pandemic with New Touchless Tap Key Tool
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (July 13, 2020) – iPourIt, Inc., the nation’s leader in self-pour beverage dispense technology, has announced the launch of the new Touchless Tap Key (TTK), a reusable RFID device that pairs with the iPourIt system to create a safe and sanitized self-serve experience. The device was specially developed for iPourIt partners in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and allows users to enjoy self-pour systems without touching any taps or screens. With the addition of the TTK, the iPourIt system is now the safest solution for serving draft beverages in restaurants and taprooms.
Working closely with operator partners through the peak of the pandemic, iPourIt was eager to find a way to help address new health requirements and changing safety regulations. “Our technology team has been busy developing a comprehensive touchless self-serve solution to help ensure our partners and their patrons could continue to enjoy their beer wall experience,” says Darren Nicholson, Vice President of iPourIt, Inc. “We recognize our operators’ need to provide safe and health-conscious options when using the self-serve beer wall.”
The TTK is a simple multi-purpose tool that features a user-friendly finger grip, tap hooking functionality and built-in RFID to activate beverage taps. It’s dishwasher safe, made of durable plastic and built for regular cleaning and sanitation. With its reusable design, the TTK cuts down on paper and plastic waste by eliminating the need for single-use protective products at the tap.
iPourIt operator Oak & Stone was the first to roll out the TTK at all five of their Florida locations and the solution has been a key component in their reopening strategy. Co-Owner Joe Seidensticker notes, “The beer wall experience is a key element of why people love Oak & Stone. Our iPourIt partners have been busy making sure we can safely keep that experience intact by pivoting and enhancing the technology further.”
