BeviLaNatura by Zerica

Stand Number: F320

Multi-award winning touchscreen beverage solutions: IoT-enabled management with remote modification.

The Natura Hot`n`Cold is Zerica`s flagship product in the BeviLaNatura post-mix range. Dispensing coffee, iced coffee, hot tea, iced tea, hot water, juice and chilled water all from one elegant, compact machine it`s a drinks revelation. Clean, quick, easy, no mess drinks delivery with no pesky coffee grounds in sight.

Brimming with Internet of Things technologies:

All of Zerica`s touchscreen models use AUXILIA, an exclusive IoT-enabled remote monitoring and management software. View a wide range of data from technical metrics such as voltage, pressure and temperature to usage volumes via the internet portal which is accessed from any PC or smartphone. The dashboard overview is designed for portfolio management at a glance and displays graphs & key data. There are alerts for regular maintenance (e.g. filter or CO2 canister substitution) plus warnings for technical issues (e.g. fan malfunctioning).

Remote problem solving:
Unique to this market, and something most IoT solutions cannot provide, machine operating parameters can be modified REMOTELY enabling technical support without a visit. Not only the machine can be switched on and off remotely but, remarkably, target temperature, energy saving periods, free-flow/portion control options, dilution and various other parameters can be modified online.

All this real-time data makes route planning for routine interventions straightforward to optimize. Apart from routine maintenance engineers only visit site when they can`t resolve the problem remotely. They arrive already aware of the problem in detail and with the right tools for a first-time-fix with no wasted visits due to not having the correct replacement parts.

Overall, this remote problem resolution capability leads to reduced interventions & support costs plus increased customer satisfaction and a sustainable servicing solution.

Making life easier for managers and staff and compact too:
Using the interactive touchscreen, you can regulate drink temperature, modify drink strength and set serving size for cups, glasses or jugs (there is space for a carafe). Real-time operational status is easy to view as is available product remaining. The whole system is designed to be as maintenance free and user friendly as possible with the Bag-in-Boxes designed for rapid changeovers. Plus, with no coffee grounds to deal with it`s many times faster than a bean-to-cup solution.

In stainless steel and measuring only 33W x 43D x 71H cm the dispensers have a remarkably small footprint, especially given the high volumes of drink and the type and variety of drink they can dispense.

Fun for customers to use with advertising opportunities and mobile-app-enabled payments:
The touchscreen is surprisingly entertaining (check out the Tetris mini video!). When you`ve decided whether you want a hot or a cold drink you then choose from 2 options from a total range including coffee, 4 types of hot teas, hot water, great tasting juices, iced teas, and iced coffee plus chilled water. Choosing a drink has never been more fun and with drinks dispensed at an incredible speed, it`s quick and easy.

Bespoke videos and adverts can be displayed on the touchscreen and you can personalise the exterior of the machine with customised graphics.

In a vending environment, the machine can be configured to accept mobile app & NFC enabled payments.

Multi-award winning technology:
The Hot`n`Cold is fresh from winning a coveted Host SMART Label 2019 Award for `significant contribution to developments in the sector` in Milan in September 2019. Other recent accolades for this technology include: Foodservice Equipment of the Year 2018 - Energy Efficiency; Catering Insight Awards 2018 - Sustainability; and Food & Hotel Asia 2018 - Cost Savings & Innovation.

Highly sustainable:
In addition, all Zerica units are: plumbed-in meaning no plastic bottles in sight, large or small, plus none of the hygiene issues or logistical / storage requirements associated with bottle-fed water units; made from 100% recyclable stainless steel; use the new ecologically-friendly R600a refrigerant gas; and are incredibly energy efficient using Direct Chill cooling and proprietary boiling technology to dispense drinks on demand at up to 99°C. Energy `pulses` (no continuous heating) consume over 30% less energy compared to similar throughput machines.

At Coffee Shop Innovation, the Natura Hot`n`Cold will be joined by the OnTop, a cold drinks only version, plus some of Zerica`s latest touchscreen water dispensers such as the ultra-compact Kolumna and free-standing Kemonia.
