Making all coffee machines smart with Flowplan

By Flowplan Benefits
Digitalization made easy

We only need water

For our solution to work, we just need a water flow that we can measure. The collected water data is converted into consumption data via artificial intelligence, and displayed in our Software system, so that the data is made usable and manageable for the service company. Flowplan works on all industrial machines with water flow.

Installation without concern

A few steps and the solution is installed

You only need to plug the flowmeter into Beam and it will automatically start connecting to the Beam' own IoT network.

Complete IoT solution

Wireless transmission of data

All collected data is sent via Beam's own IoT network, after which it is received and processed in our Backoffice system, which calculates when the next filter change or service need is, and the system gives an automatic message.

Your very own Flowplan Backoffice System

By Flowplan Benefits
All the data you can imagine

We have made a complete software system, and you get your very own!

Your very own system

You get your own backoffice system with all your devices. We group the devices based on your customers and you can even grant them access to data about their machines

Easy overview

The Dashboard gives you a quick overview on the status of all your devices. Here you see filters that need your attention soon, your upcoming filters, and if anything seems wrong. We even place all your devices on a map

We calculate the filter capacity

Whenever you install a new filter, just pick the type of filter you have installed and where it's located, then we calculate the capacity based on the water hardness and the official data about the filter from the filter manufacturer.

No more guessing

Estimating or even guessing filter changes are a thing from the past. Based on data from the specific filter, we forecast when it's time to change it. This means that we can give you a pretty good estimate for next change a week after you installed it. And the closer you get, the more precise our estimates are

Why not change more filters in the area?

Way too often you drive to one customer one day and three days later you visit their neighbor - or even the same customer, since there is no way of predicting when the filters need change. Not any more! We group the filter changes in order to reduce driving. This way you save miles, money and reduce pollution.

All the data you can imagine

Every time a cup of coffee is produced, we transmit the data. Based on several parameters, we use machine learning to recognize the drinks and based on this we give you insights on consumption patterns and even tell you which beverages are being made. We even recognize if everything is running smoothly or something may be starting to drift

How to install the Flowplan

By Flowplan guides
Installation without concern

We have done our absolute best to make sure the installation is as easy as possible.

1

Install the flowmeter

It's simple. The flowmeter comes with a 3/8" threaded connection that fits directly to all standard filters. Mount the flowmeter on the filter head
2

Mount it!

Mount the electronics box using tape, screws or zip ties. Ideally you want to place it in the open and as high as possible in order to get the best signal
3

Plug it in!

Plug the flowmeter into the electronics box. This also turns on the device, which you hear from the loud 3 second constant beep
4

Let it connect!

After the loud initial beep is over, the device is automatically connecting to our network. When you hear 4 short beeps, the device is connected and everything is running
5

That's it!

The device is now connected, and everything is as it should be. Everytime a water flow is measured, the device transmits the data and we process it
6

Add it in our backoffice

Finally, add the filter in the Flowplan Backoffice by entering the details and the 10-digit serial number written on the Beam
