Cutting Edge RFID Technology + cloud reporting
Seamless integration of purpose-built software and patent-pending hardware.
The core of the Keg Hounds keg tracking solution is two fold: cloud-based reporting software + flexible hardware integrations. Customers can use their existing barcodes and readers or choose to upgrade to Keg Hounds’ patent pending RFID tags and readers for easier inventory and more consistent tracking results (financing options available).
Attached inside the chimb wall, the tag won’t get knocked off
No welding, adhesives, or special tools required
Under 5 second application time
Nearly indestructible: waterproof, caustic proof, foolproof
Keg Hounds was founded by beer guys, not tech guys, and the patent pending Keg Hounds RFID tag is proof. Other RFID companies use off the shelf tags that require welding to the top dome of the keg, but welded tags get knocked off quickly when kegs get stacked on top of each other and don’t work well when wet.
The Keg Hounds tag is affordable, easy to install, waterproof, and can be easily read from distances of 4 to 8 feet. It has been designed from the ground up specifically for keg tracking.
Available on iPhone and Android
Works with RFID and bar codes
For breweries with a few hundred kegs, RFID might be more than is needed. For breweries that already use RFID technology, you may just want to quickly look up a few kegs when a reader isn’t handy.
Keg Hounds has you covered.
The Keg Hounds app allows you to read the bar code on the RFID tag or the keg by using your smartphone. Whether you’re out in the field or in the taproom, the Keg Hounds app let’s you identify and manage each keg from any location.
