Device Creates Safe and Sanitized Self-Serve Experience
iPourIt Inc., which specializes in self-pour beverage dispense technology, has launched a 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, the company said.
Working closely with operator partners through the peak of the pandemic, iPourIt Inc. said it 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,” said Darren Nicholson, vice president of Lake Forest, Calif-based 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, according to the company.
