This session will explore how the worlds largest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBevs, South African Brewery, subsidiary set out on an IoT initiative designed to allow them real-time intelligence on the location and condition of their cooler systems, across South Africa under challenging circumstances. Discussion will focus in on the elements of several strategic local and global partnerships that were put in place to ensure seamless, low cost connectivity that would work where-ever and when-ever required, enabling them to rapidly develop the solution and roll it out in the space of weeks. Hear how they achieved the requirements necessary, and are now able to identify cooler asset optimisation and potential maintenance tasks, amongst others to ensure efficiencies and cost savings.
