LocatorX and Schoolhouse Brewing Leverage Asset Tracking for Customer Service

By Ken Briodagh November 12, 2019

LocatorX, a tracking technology company, has announced the addition of Schoolhouse Brewing to its client portfolio, which reportedly will use LocatorX technology to improve product and tracking information while also increasing opportunities for secure customer-brand interaction.

Schoolhouse Brewing offers homebrewing services and calls itself Georgia's first open source and rotating brewery. The company shares recipes and sells the ingredients and equipment needed to make the brewskis. Because it is also a rotating brewery, Schoolhouse Brewing never brews the same thing twice and now plans to use LocatorX's technology to drive this mission.

Schoolhouse Brewing reportedly will be able to track its kegs and better communicate with customers to improve customer engagement and retention. Additionally, customers can use the platform to connect with Schoolhouse Brewing on a deeper level by sharing direct feedback, collaborating on new recipes, and troubleshooting new brewing techniques. Customers will also be able to easily order ingredients and equipment on the platform based on the recipe they've selected simply by scanning a certified CQ code.

“Schoolhouse Brewing is going to be using LocatorX's technology to track equipment and help develop a teaching tool for our at-home brewing kits,” said Thomas Monti, Head Brewer, Schoolhouse Brewing. “We'll be able to go paperless through the use of LocatorX's QR codes, but still be able to share the latest recipes, tips, and educational info with our customers.”

Adding another layer of technology is nothing new for Schoolhouse Brewing. The company is always evolving and has already been utilizing open source brewing to develop new recipes and techniques. Through this, Schoolhouse Brewing offers full transparency to its customers, but wants to take things a step further.

“LocatorX is excited to join forces with Schoolhouse Brewing to redefine what it means to offer great customer service,” said Scott Fletcher, CEO and President, LocatorX. “With LocatorX's customer engagement and tracking technology, Schoolhouse brewing can offer customers increased insight into ingredients as well as the brewing process while also keeping tabs on its brewing equipment. We look forward to working with Schoolhouse Brewing and redefining what it means to be a customer-first brewery.”
