Fall Updates October 21 2016, 0 Comments
So there's some great news I'd like to share with you. We've been hard at work recently, partnering with new suppliers and increasing our volumes in an effort to bring down the pumps costs for everyone. The great news is that we've been successful at reducing the cost to $99.95 per dispenser. This adds up when you're wanting to dispense more than a few ingredients. The down side, albeit short-term is that there are some growing pains with working with new suppliers. We've hit a few snags on material shortages and long lead times, so the dispensers that were expected this week will take about two more weeks before they can be completed. We expect to be able to start shipping the new dispensers on the week of November 7th. Thanks to those who have already been waiting patiently for these, I hope the new price will make up for the wait!
In other news, we've also been working on an Arduino shield that will couple with a Bartendro Dispenser and provide a quick and easy interface for controlling a dispenser without a computer or even a smartphone. This project is still in development, but we anticipate releasing it before the end of the year. Stay tuned.
