BELMONT, N.C. (November 18, 2021) – Newly expanded Jekyll & Hyde Brewing has implemented Ekos, the leading business management software for breweries, as the brewery grows across the Charlotte-metro area. Jekyll & Hyde opened its flagship taphouse location in Matthews in 2017 and recently opened a brewery location in Belmont. The company plans to open a third location in Waxhaw next year.
“I was introduced to Ekos at my first brewing job,” Head Brewer Kyle McLaughlin said. “Every brewery I have worked at since, I recommend implementing Ekos because of its ease of use, organized interface, and ability to pull reports on just about anything that goes on inside and outside of the brewery.”
Ekos is a business management software designed specifically for alcohol producers. From sales to production to inventory, Ekos is an end-to-end platform that helps craft producers spend more time connecting with customers and producing beer, cider, wine or seltzer, and less time organizing spreadsheets and paperwork.
Production forecasting, inventory tracking, and excise tax reporting are the brewery’s primary focus in the Ekos software right now; however, as 2022 brings growth, Jekyll & Hyde is planning to expand its distribution model and utilize Ekos’s sales functions.
“Our goal is to grow into a much larger distributing brewery. With Ekos’s ease of invoicing, adding customers and deposit collections, I am glad we have it implemented before going into distribution,” Kyle said. “Trying to play catch up is never fun, and with Ekos in place, the organization factor is all already there.”
Kyle says the Jekyll & Hyde team is looking forward to the ease of utilizing Ekos in their new location. The software will help the brewery forecast when they need to make more of their most popular beers — making for happier customers.
“Jekyll & Hyde demonstrates the heart of what our software is about,” said Ekos CEO Josh McKinney, “At Ekos, we want to help alcohol producers keep their production, accounting and sales organized in one spot so they can focus on doing what they love. Jekyll & Hyde’s unique concept and execution has given them great success so far, and we can’t wait to be a part of all the brewery’s future successes.
