Overview on Duotank

Duotank is a bag-in-tank alternative to the traditional keg beer system. The aseptic tank environment enables breweries to maintain the quality of their beer after it leaves the brite tank and ensures consumers experience the taste as the brewmaster intended.

Beer is delivered on-premise to an empty, pressurised, insulated tank with an internal coolant to ensure perfect serving temperature. Tank design enables the installation of tanks in the air or on top of each other, so you can significantly reduce the strain on stockroom space and manual handling.

Breweries may realise a decrease in costs of product since the flow of liquid is one way, meaning that they don’t need to collect empty kegs on empty trucks and this reduces vehicle depreciation and KMs on road for a greener logistic.

Duotank provides an end-to-end solution to breweries through the supply and installation of the tank beer systems to the logistics and fulfilment of beer from brewery to venue.

 

GoCanvas Implementation and Results

Prior to GoCanvas, payroll and monthly reconciliations were conducted manually by a member of the administration staff.

Duotank operates in four Australian states with drivers located outside of the business head office in Victoria. This meant that drivers were required to post hard copy documents to head office to be manually transcribed into spreadsheets and payroll software.

Since joining GoCanvas in 2019, Duotank has seen a total transformation of its manual processes by implementing GoCanvas for their POD/sign-on, monthly reconciliation, inventory management, plant tracking, and OH&S procedures.

Using a combination of submission downloads and Google Sheets with Zapier integrations, the business has seamlessly streamlined many internal processes by focusing on backend application of data that has replaced the laborious task of manual collection.

An added benefit has been the ability to automate workflows in their business. For example, they can now set parameters that will send out automated warning if there is an impact to service and it will notify their employees in the field.

Another benefit of GoCanvas for the business has been compliance. The business is now able to manipulate the data from driver rest break app submissions, allowing them to easily report and ensure NHVL compliance.

By eliminating the manual processes and transforming their business operations, Duotank has seen increased efficiencies and they have found it beneficial to move toward digital processes using GoCanvas.
