Inventory Management

Making sure that you have the right amount of any given product, available in the right place, at the right time, without having too much, is an incredibly complex balancing act, especially in a rapidly growing industry like the craft beer industry.  By consolidating business processes into one, integrated database, your purchasing team will stay in-sync with your production line, ensuring synchronized business processes.  Raw materials in production are subtracted from your inventory in real-time, so every department always has access to accurate, up-to-the-minute inventory levels.  ERP software allows your company to reduce excess, minimize stock-out and place orders more quickly, allowing you the freedom to focus on growing your business and keeping up with competitors.

Production Management

From wort to packaging and everything in between, ERP allows you to visualize and manage your production process with customized work flows.  With the flexibility to add or subtract additional steps like dry hopping, fruiting or spicing, you have the flexibility and control to streamline your production processes.

  • Bill Of Materials And Recipe Management
    A Bill of Materials is used to manage recipes for each style or process associated with product production.  Account for all materials needed to produce wort, green beer or bright beer
  • Quality Control
    Eliminate manual processes like spreadsheets for tracking batch QC metrics.  Using ERP, raw material attributes, brewing QC and fermentation logs are attributed to the appropriate production order, batch or tank for maximum traceability.
  • Batch Traceability
    Easily handle and track products by lot number with power and flexibility.  Lot numbers can be recognized when received or shipped.  Also, record and manage expiration dates by lot number. Gain full control over your batch processing.  Components can be adjusted based on seasonality, availability, and required substitutions.  Batch process manufacturing allows you to compensate for variable yield with the ability to alter the quantity produced.  You can also account for spillage and waste and handle multiple lots of the same ingredients while calculating precise costing by batch.

Reporting

Create your own custom reports, or use one of the hundreds of financial, inventory, production, purchasing, sales, QC or Forecasting reports pre-built!  Utilize visualized, dashboard reporting for even more decision-making power.

Compliance

Craft beer is a heavily regulated industry.  Compliance and documentation can take up a great deal of your business’ time and energy, but ERP software helps to streamline your compliance and documentation processes.  The TTB has cited the most common non-compliance issue for breweries as lack of and inaccuracy of proper documentation. Using ERP software, you can track and document the entire manufacturing process making consistent records easily accessible.

How to Plan an ERP Implementation Project from Start to Finish (and Beyond!)

ERP implementation projects have a notoriously high failure rate.  One of the things conveniently left out of reports containing these troubling statistics is why so many implementation projects fail to deliver expected results on time or on budget.  Of course, there is an infinite number of reasons that ERP projects fail, but the truth is that poor project planning is one of the most common. Without clarity on project structure, activities, roles, and responsibilities, ERP implementation projects can often suffer from confusion and resistance, making execution extremely difficult.  Read More
