The Guinness Academy is a specially designed bar where visitors can learn to pour the perfect pint and receive a signed certificate in recognition of their achievement. Post “graduation” from the Guinness Academy the “graduates” can have their picture taken behind the bar with their perfect pint and certificate in hand and share their photo on their Facebook page on interactive kiosks.
To enhance the visitor experience Rockbrook was tasked to design, install and commission a system to increase the speed at which visitors received their certificate after they learn how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness.
To achieve this a custom app was designed, iPads were mounted to the edge of each bar and linked via a wireless network to individual printers located at the back of each bar. Patrons enter their details prior to the pouring lesson so that there is no waiting for certificates prior to photos being taken.
