Trusted coffee solution

Scanomat is building on its relationship with QBE, one of the world's top 20 insurance and reinsurance companies, and will continue to provide a first-class coffee experience and after-care service, including the supply of sustainable, specialty-grade Amokka coffee beans which are fully traceable back to origin.

Like many businesses, QBE's approach to the workplace has evolved during the pandemic, so it was important to have a stable coffee solution they could rely on to welcome staff back to the office.

"The TopBrewer's premium look and feel remain an attractive feature in our offices to attract internal and external clients to the environment. In addition, the TopBrewer has proven to be a very reliable and durable asset to our business throughout our longstanding relationship with Scanomat," says Giuseppe Vianello, Client Services Operations Manager at QBE.

Evolution

QBE was one of the first clients globally to adopt TopBrewer as the standard beverage solution for all staff and visitor areas in the workplace due to its flexible design, advanced technology, and social aspect. Since then, the TopBrewer experience has evolved at a pace, with many free upgrades enhancing the user experience, including the introduction of voice control during the Covid-19 pandemic. Internationally, Scanomat continues to grow at great speed and is developing new, cutting-edge beverage solutions for workplace, retail and hospitality markets.

Simon Bracken, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Scanomat UK & Ireland comments: "We position ourselves as much more than coffee machine providers; we believe in working in partnership to provide a premium and personalised coffee experience that elevates the workplace into a collaborative destination."

Equally, the relationship between Scanomat and QBE has evolved. Initially, Scanomat provided a fully managed barista service to QBE which involved re-filling and maintaining the machines daily, but over time QBE were able to expand their in-house catering department to be able to manage the TopBrewer fleet internally, with continued regular barista support visits and training from the Scanomat team.

Giuseppe adds; "My experience working with the Scanomat team is like working with a small family-run business and we still work with much of the same personnel today as we did from day one. I have been impressed with the response times, comprehensive level of service, and personalised barista support they provide."
