Brewery drops complicated enterprise software for an easy-to-use business management system
DURHAM, N.C. (March 10, 2021) – Fullsteam Brewery, Durham’s oldest craft brewery, recently adopted Ekos as its inventory and business management software. The brewery was previously using another enterprise software, but found it to be too complicated and expensive. As the pandemic highlighted the importance of efficiency, the Fullsteam team decided to switch to Ekos to streamline operations across the company.
Independent craft breweries like Fullsteam use Ekos to:
- Eliminate manual processes by reducing data-entry and automating reconciliation
- Discover insights about their business such as COGS, margins and other important metrics
- Improve team communication with a central hub of information that is cloud-based and can be accessed from anywhere
“We chose Ekos because it was more affordable in time, cost and complexity for our company,” said Erik Lars Myers, head brewer and director of beverage operations at Fullsteam Brewery. “Ekos allows us to streamline our operations for efficiency in data management and allows our staff to focus on the tasks they need to focus on, rather than just keeping data up to date.”
Beyond the core inventory management functions in Ekos, Fullsteam will also use the brewery management software to track production, manage tavern inventory and sales and improve its self-distribution invoice processing.
“At Ekos, we want to help breweries make the most of their time so they can make more beer, make more revenue and grow their businesses,” said Josh McKinney, CEO of Ekos. “We pride ourselves on providing a software solution that provides tangible value by helping teams work faster and more efficiently.”
