Ekos improvements make day-to-day tasks easier, faster, and more intuitive

New features reduce time on tasks from minutes to mere seconds

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 8, 2022)Ekos, the leader in business management software for craft beverage businesses, is announcing more improvements to its platform that make it even easier for users to complete everyday tasks. 

In addition to the changes to the platform announced in July, Ekos has been focused on three key areas of improvement: connecting the craft supply chain, increasing data visibility and actionable insights, and strengthening the foundation of the software. Ekos has released a number of enhancements over the past 60 days, all focused on improving the software’s foundational, day-to-day usability. These new features include bulk inventory transfers, cascading date changes, and QuickBooks sync improvements.

With these updates, Ekos users will spend less time in the platform — freeing them up to focus on running or growing their businesses. Users will realize the following benefits:

  • Save time by transferring inventory faster: The most-requested feature from Ekos users is here — the ability to transfer multiple inventory items at once. In addition to simplifying the user experience and removing long wait times, this feature also includes improvements to the back-end infrastructure of Ekos. The result is that transferring inventory is now five times faster than before.
  • Additional functionality and reduced errors for the QuickBooks integration: The Ekos and QuickBooks integration is one of the most valuable connections for craft beverage businesses. To make this integration even more powerful, Ekos has rolled out dozens of features and updates that reduce sync time, cut down on manual input and data errors, and improve the functionality of the integration. 
  • Easily change production dates for maximum flexibility: When production plans change, Ekos users need to be able to easily reflect those changes in the software. Previously, changing dates took many steps and interrupted the workflow. Now, Ekos users can shift multiple dates in one step and change all subsequent task dates with the click of a button or by dragging and dropping tasks in the calendar view. Adjusting five tasks used to take three minutes and can now be done in only one second.

“The Ekos team is always looking for ways to make our software better — from adding new functionality to the product to improving the day-to-day workflow for our users,” said Josh McKinney, CEO of Ekos. “We’ve heavily invested in our product and development teams and listened to customer feedback so we can roll out improvements that our users have requested. Now, vital tasks like transferring inventory require fewer clicks and can be completed faster than ever before.”
