The PintLabs team is very excited to announce that we have been acquired by SteadyServ Technologies, LLC.
Since we started PintLabs just over three years ago, we have worked to deliver high quality, accurate data about the beer industry to all of our users through our API and mobile applications. By joining forces with the team at SteadyServ, we are ready to take our collective company to the next level. This acquisition will allow our highly passionate team to focus 100% of our time, energy and efforts on delivering the software and intelligence that will shape the future of the beer industry.
When we were approached by SteadyServ, it was immediately clear that our goals were very similar. We both want to use real, accurate data to make the beer industry better. As more conversations happened, both teams realized that we would be much stronger working together than we ever would be individually. The passion, dedication, and experience of the SteadyServ team gave us the confidence to entrust them with the future of PintLabs. It was obvious that we saw ourselves in SteadyServ and they saw themselves in PintLabs. Our missions and goals are so aligned that this was something that was clearly ‘better together.’
SteadyServ’s mission is simple: Make sure that beer lovers never have to hear the dreaded words, “Sorry, we’re out of that one.” As a real-time inventory management system, SteadyServ’s iKeg system helps bar owners, restaurants, sporting venues, etc. keep track of the beer they have, and know exactly when and what to reorder. Going forward, the PintLabs family of software will play a crucial role in the development and advancement of SteadyServ’s iKeg system, as well as a number of other beer intelligence products and services we will be bringing to market.
Whenever an acquisition happens, there are always questions and concerns about what it means for the customers of the company being acquired. Our team has spent countless hours building and supporting PintLabs’ projects over the last three years and could not have made it where we are today without the support of so many of you. Your interests – as customers of PintLabs – were a crucial consideration in our decision to move forward with this acquisition.
You can rest assured that we will continue to provide the BreweryDB API as a robust service on which to build your applications, and we will still be maintaining and improving BreweryMap and PocketBeer. In fact, one of the goals of this acquisition was to increase the value we provide to you. Moving forward we will also be adding new features and offering new levels of service that we’re sure will enable the creation of all kinds of new apps. We hold ourselves to a high level of service and customer support and are committed to maintaining the high level of reliable service you’ve come to expect.
As part of this acquisition, the PintLabs team will relocate into permanent SteadyServ offices in Raleigh, North Carolina. We are thrilled to be taking this next step and are excited to see what the future holds!
