What if you could identify quality deficiencies in the branches at an early stage? What if you could transfer seasonal baking programmes from the head office to the stores with just one click? And how would it be if data from all the in-store ovens were bundled in a central location in one overview and you had access to exact information for your planning at all times?
That would be fantastic. And this is no longer a dream of the future. The MIWE smart baking suite (MIWE sbs for short), a management software for optimising all process sequences related to baking, visualises all data in a central dashboard. All processes on the systems can be monitored centrally, and baking chambers can be easily programmed or deactivated for resource-saving work. And there's more: Intelligent tools process the data so that proactive measures as well as self-optimising functions can be systematically implemented.
The future of in-store baking is now. The MIWE smart baking suite is your gateway to this digital future.
An energy monitor is a welcome addition in times of scarce and increasingly costly energy on the market. Our sbs:energiemonitor not only summarises the actual energy consumption of a baking oven, but also breaks it down in detail. For example, according to different operating states.
In a clear dashboard with various panels, these are displayed graphically and numerically and evaluated directly. How long did the baking station bake for? How long did it take to heat up? How long was it in MIWE Eco mode? How efficiently was the consumed energy used? With the key parameter "baking efficiency", you have important facts at your fingertips to make the right tweaks to optimise energy use.
The MIWE sbs:energiemonitor offers you:
The online baking programme manager is more than just a tool – it's your very own digital assistant that supports you in the efficiently creating and managing your baking programmes.
This tool, available in the MIWE smart baking suite, allows you to conveniently create and manage the ideal parameters for baking on your computer remotely. Depending on the oven model, you can create several baking phases, set the temperature for top and bottom heat (deck oven), determine the fan speed (convection oven), set the steam quantity, create heating intensities, set the baking time and much more.
Soon also available as a free version: Baking Programme Manager light.
Your advantages with the online baking programme manager:
Correctly setting the equipment in the stores and providing support for employees on site are essential in achieving the desired high quality standards of the baked goods produced. The MIWE smart baking suite offers support here by first ensuring that the correct system configuration is always used. In addition, meaningful reports and key figures, documented freshness times, the control of limit values and the central management of settings on site ensure stable processes across all stores.
MIWE sbs creates:
With the MIWE smart baking suite software package, all baking stations can be controlled centrally. The baking station automatically transmits any errors and change notifications, and firmware updates can be installed on the baking stations in the stores with just a few clicks from the control centre. All operating data is brought together in one dashboard and ensures maximum transparency on operating hours and resource consumption. Thanks to direct access to baking programmes, settings and service codes, the MIWE sbs simply makes many trips from the central office to the individual stores redundant.
MIWE sbs provides:
A user-friendly visualisation provides the user with an overview of all branches in a list or map view. The branch manager can call up a live view of the branch at the click of a button, obtaining an up-to-date status of all baking stations. Reports on utilisation and baking progress allow the use of the baking stations to be tracked precisely and for compliance with key figures to be monitored. A calendar function is available for easy pre-planning of auto-start times, cleaning times and blocked times.
Resource planning with MIWE sbs leads to:
Our MIWE starter app gives you some initial insight into the digital world of baking. Connect directly to your oven via a smartphone and gain useful insights. For this purpose, the app provides you with practical step-by-step instructions on how to connect your MIWE oven to your local network. From this point on, your dashboard with operating states, energy consumption or pending error codes of the oven is just a tap away.
This is what the MIWE starter app offers you:
Would you like to know how the MIWE sbs:energy monitor can help you save energy?
Your tasks include testing, optimising and releasing new baking programs (for new products). Thanks to the MIWE smart baking suite, this is easier than ever before. You create a new baking programme, test it, add work instructions, the configuration picture and a photo. Then simply transfer the baking programme to the desired ovens at the click of a mouse.
Your task is to ensure the reliable availability and flawless software performance of your systems. With MIWE sbs, you check whether all the systems are "live" and inform service technicians if necessary. Or: You receive error messages automatically – even on your smartphone – and can take care of troubleshooting immediately.
With the MIWE sbs reports, you can monitor all the processes in your branches: you get an overview of the compliance with freshness times and can directly address employees on site in case of deviations. For Sunday openings, you can adjust the automatic start times of the ovens so that the sales team can have a smooth start in the morning. And you can plan the daily branch routine in detail through defined auto-start, cleaning and blocked times.
You want clear and concise information about which problems occurred where, when and why (or why not). Because you want to take countermeasures, perform modifications and optimise processes. The reports give you exactly the overview you need for your branch structure – customisable and clear.
In a white paper, we have briefly summarised for you the opportunities offered by digitalisation, the funding options available and the problem situations that have long since become a thing of the past for branch bakers in a networked bakery.

MIWE smart baking suite winner of the Europain Innovation Award
The MIWE sbs was awarded the prix nouveauté, the Europain Innovation Award, in 2018. The future-oriented solution impressed the jury with the variety of functions the software offers – from simplification of branch management, through central administration, monitoring and synchronisation of systems, right up to provision of comprehensive reports and figures.
