We just released OBeer v4.3 which also includes a stunning new update on the mobile side as well. Version 4.3 of the app is sure to initiate some fist bumps in the brew house once brewers get a taste of all the new stuff, (even the tank visuals got new digs).
The OBeer Mobile Production App extends production capabilities out to the brewery floor, allowing production teams to process production orders and packaging right from an iPad.
The app conducts all the back end transactions so brewers can spend less time inputting data from clipboards and spreadsheets.
On to the good stuff.
OBeer Mobile Production App: New interface, better user experience
The OBeer mobile brewery production app was rewritten to be faster and more intuitive, while providing a reliable foundation for building future mobile releases. The new UI eliminates the ‘noise’ and adds more white-space for a streamlined user experience for daily use.
OBeer Mobile Production App: Packaging, ‘empty tank’ function
Finally, on the packaging side, your packaging team can access a list of production orders with a simple “Swipe right” gesture1. An ‘Empty Tank’2 button allows you to empty remaining beer from a tank without having to exit the app. This allows you to track the remaining quantity in the tank (via Goods Receipt) and then flags the variance for the accounting team to track.
What’s Next for The OBeer iPad App?
We accomplished a lot with this update, but there’s even more coming to the app store in future updates.
Our quarterly release cycle means OBeer is in a state of continuous improvement, constantly providing the community something new and improved throughout the year.
For example, thanks to our highly engaged OBeer community forum, users were able to convey their collective interest in adding new functionality, like entering QC metrics and inventory counts right from an iPad.
