From Armored Cars to Easy, Fast BLUbeem™
Blue Label worked with the Brink’s team to consult on, design, and develop the BLUbeem™ app, a faster
more efficient digital solution to cash payments. Brink’s clients can now digitize their cash through
same Brink’s Box they are accustomed to, with an improved digital interface.
The result? Retailers receive access to business-critical cash flow within 24 hours, versus a previous wait time of up to a week.
Digital Transformation that Inspires Confidence
With our existing expertise and experience building mobile apps and apps for Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, we created an integrated, omnichannel app focused strategically on features that addressed the needs of Brink’s customers. Essential cash data, a touch-friendly UI, and an onboarding process tested by users who felt confident and comfortable using the app were key to helping drive Brink’s transformation into the digital era.
How Does An Offline Business Innovate in the Digital Era?
Founded in 1859, Brink’s has been long known for their armored cars that
pick up cash from businesses to process and deposit into their clients’ accounts.
As an offline business, the company was challenged with how to innovate with new revenue streams as stock prices fell, while innovating for their customers: brick and mortar retailers who need something simple, low-friction, easy to use, and most importantly, has a clear value add for both store owner and employees handling cash.
Digital innovation was the objective, so Brink’s approached Blue Label to continue with their internal
efforts to build an app that would modernize their cash payments system.
With the goal of positioning the product as a clear value add and a mutually beneficial revenue stream
everyone, we set out to uncover learnings about the types of people who would be users of the app, from
storeowners to various employee profiles.
A 3-day workshop on location with multiple stakeholders from diverse areas of the team, from the CEO
to onboarding, was key to understanding the real world processes that customers currently go
Once a strategy was developed and the initial design prototype was complete,
we conducted 1 on 1 research sessions attended by key business owner and employee personas. Key findings
us shape strategy and build a roadmap, with prioritized features for an MVP that could easily scale,
an at-a-glance dashboard for cash sales and deposits, a clear onboarding process, and a simple layout
We also researched Brink’s current web solution and POS APIs to understand from
the get-go what data was available to use to enhance the customer’s experience
and maximize value.
We developed a data orchestrator to manage traffic and API calls for leading POS apps Clover and Square, which would also support future integration of other POS providers as Brink continues to expand.

It’s a Win-Win
While there was a clear business win for BLUbeem™ as stock prices rose post-launch, the app was also a big win for Brink’s customers. They cited time saved, the immediate impact access to cash flow has had on business growth, and praised the simple UX designed to be used by anyone including new staff in a fast-paced, often high-turnover retail environment.
