our story_

From developing a brewery management software that redefined how craft brewmasters keep track of their brew process and manage their breweries, to advancing the affordability and ease-of-use of such software for craft-based businesses, Ekos has long been on the forefront of creating software tools for craft makers that enables them to function like the big dogs — but we love representing the underdogs.

We are Ekos. Here's how it all started...

Continue reading...

It all started in a craft brewery. We were captivated by the quality of this microbrewing process. The craft and skill. It was inspiring to watch the brewers work. While chatting with them we discovered that as their breweries grew their brewing process quickly became very complicated. We continued to hear stories of all their processes being done on clipboards and spreadsheets - bringing chaos to a successful craft brewery. It was shocking that this emerging industry lacked the fundamental tools to help them run an efficient business. 

But then we started to see that their only options to tame the chaos through traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems were too expensive and intense to fit the brewmaster's needs. So we turned our [other] love, for software, toward creating a brewery management system carefully crafted for the specific needs of craft brewmasters. Enter Ekos Brewmaster. 

As we grew to collaborate with more than 1,000 breweries, other emerging craft-based businesses — from kombucha brewers, to cider makers to coffee roasters — started reaching out with the intention to customize Ekos Brewmaster for their crafts. Since these requests started, our team has enhanced the production management process to help fill in the gaps to help support the entire craft movement.

We are developing a collection of business management software systems that are customized for specific niche craft markets, starting with the craft beverage industry. We're calling them ekos_systems. Ekos_brewmaster is our flagship and is still growing strong.
