Background

Vyykn Inc, a company that hopes to revolutionize our relationship to drinking water by creating an ecosystem of hydration stations.

Vyykn aims to end our eternal addiction to bottled water along with the health & environmental challenges associated with it by offering a subscription refill service, which allows its customers to fill up on oxygenated and filtered water for a nominal annual fee. Presently operational in 5 countries, Vyykn has won a plethora of awards including the ever prestigious ‘Edison Awards’ & ‘The Clean Tech Open’.

Requirements & Challenges

A robust IT infrastructure to support the distribution of clean & healthy drinking water along with tracking user consumption details was what Vyykn required to build a competitive edge in the market. For this, Vyykn asked us to build a complete management platform from scratch.

Key Challenges:

  • Implementing Subscription management and Administration dashboard
  • Integrating RFID, Fitbit and Payment gateway to the platform
  • Implementing incentive program management
  • Developing APIs for the mobile application

Our Solution

After understanding the client’s requirements, we developed the following solution:

  • A highly intuitive and robust cloud-based platform was developed to manage subscriptions, incentives, and other features.
  • RFID, Fitbit, and Payment gateway were integrated into the platform.
  • REST APIs were developed to integrate the platform with mobile apps.

Key Benefits

  • Subscribers can track their water consumption data in the cloud on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.
  • Each Vyykn refill reduces the need for a plastic bottle which makes the environment cleaner.
  • Vyykn can monitor in real-time the quality of the water going in and out of its machines. If there is a spike in an impurity, Vyykn will know right away exactly where the impurity is present in the system.

Result

Using the platform as the backbone of its ecosystem, Vyykn was able to launch its unique offering in the market, disrupting the packaged & bottled water industry. A Vyykn subscription comes with a stainless steel reusable bottle equipped with an RFID tag and an account on the Vyykn cloud platform. Subscribers use this tag to access Vyykn machines world-wide.
