Direct Communication Solutions Inc. (CSE:DCSI) developed The Brewsee to provide an industry wide solution that aims to monetize every penny from every keg of beer.

The US beer market alone is worth nearly $120 billion per year.[[7]]

Brewsee’s usefulness isn’t just limited to beer, as there’s also been proposals by Direct Communication Solutions Inc. (CSE:DCSI) to incorporate itself into the emerging cannabis market.

The newly legal marijuana market is projected to be worth $66.3 billion by 2025, growing at a rapid CAGR of 23.9%.[[8]]

Both the beer and cannabis markets have very similar needs when it comes to sensors and utilizing the data from those sensors. Each of their products are temperature sensitive, and have a limited shelf life.

With this in mind, logistics data obtained from sensors can be very significant in a company’s operations.

Moving into these two sectors appears to be a very wise move by Direct Communication Solutions Inc. (CSE:DCSI) management.


Direct Communication Solutions Inc. (CSE:DCSI) is led by a team of intrepid developers dedicated to removing the complexities from IoT solutions, and building a company focused on deploying end-to-end solutions, while reducing the number of companies it takes to create them.
