The Opportunity:

Steiner Enterprises Computer Gear Icon


Our client wanted to offer their customers options: they envisioned this new thermometer as an electronic, digital model that could communicate with a smartphone to guide home brewers through the process much more smoothly and efficiently. In essence, they wanted the device to act as a personal, digital brewing assistant. So, they came to us to help create this bluetooth-enabled thermometer—one that would offer a much better customer experience and would allow for lots of add-on features.
