Corporate Profile | Directors and Sub-committees

Vianet Group plc is the holding company for a group of companies involved in the provision of real-time monitoring systems and data management services, principally for the UK’s leisure and petrol forecourt services.

Since its admission to AIM in 2006 (at that time called Brulines Holdings plc), the Group has grown organically and through a series of strategic acquisitions to give the Group access to key vertical markets.

The Company is incorporated in England and principally operates in the UK.

The Company has no restrictions on the transfer of its shares.

The Group operates through two divisions:

Leisure Division, which trades as Vianet Limited and operates through the following brands/businesses:

Brulines The core product, BMS (Beer Monitoring System), is widely used by owners and operators within the UK licensed on-trade, especially the tenanted / leased pub sector. Flow meters connected to draught beer dispense lines send data via an on-site communication panel to a secure central database. Liquid volumes by fount, draught wine or post mix are tracked as they are served, thereby helping customers to maximise sales, service and quality as well as managing their costs. BMS is installed in over 19,000 pubs and manages data for more than one in three UK pubs.

i-Draught™ A more recent and rapidly growing product offer which is an extension of the Group's BMS, i-Draught™ scrutinises the quality of products running through beer lines in a bar; measuring volume, temperature, flow rate and liquid type (e.g. beer, cleaning fluid or water) at the point of dispense. i-Draught™ is the first system to provide effective measurement of true yields on draught products. Actual dispense volumes are compared with till transactions to identify shrinkage from products given away, pilferage and wastage.

i-Draught™ measures the precise temperature of every pint as it is dispensed, the time taken to dispense each drink, and automatically identifies the liquid allowing customers to know exactly when lines are cleaned. Wherever they are, customers can stay in control through accessing their information on a secure web site.

Whilst the vast majority of the business is conducted in the UK, i-Draught™ has a small operation in Denver, Colorado with almost 100 i-Draught™ systems installed in various outlets in the Denver Metropolitan area.

Machine Insite is an international amusement and Amusement With Prizes (“AWP”) machine management company. Working with clients right across Europe, it currently manages over 38,000 machines and delivers a range of services, from simple data provision and reporting through to complex machine management and contract negotiations.

Most of the business is primarily within the pub retail sector (including major managed-estates and regional brewers) though it also provides services to multi-site businesses such as Odeon Cinemas and the Military. In addition, using its CoinMetrics technology, it provides live, on-site monitoring systems to owner operators of amusement and AWP machine sites across the UK and Europe.
