Pacific Northwest brewery grows software adoption to include business management software Ekos

North Jetty Brewing uses Ekos to streamline accounting processes and improve cross-departmental communication

SEAVIEW, WASH. (June 21, 2022) — Washington-based North Jetty Brewing is using business management software Ekos to increase efficiencies across the brewery, improve inventory and accounting processes, and boost visibility.

Ekos, the leading business management software for breweries in the United States and Canada, helps brewers improve efficiencies in the areas of inventory, production, sales, and accounting. The software also empowers brewers to do more by integrating with accounting software solutions QuickBooks and Xero; POS systems Square, Arryved, and Commerce7; and, most recently, ecommerce platform Shopify.

Erik Svendsen, co-founder of North Jetty Brewing, says the team looked for a solution that would help the brewery manage growth and improve its inventory processes. Plus, the integration Ekos has with QuickBooks sealed the deal for Erik, who is also a CPA.

“As the owner and as a CPA, a lot of my time was tied up making sure QuickBooks was accurate. This daily busy work took me away from what should be my main job: running the company,” Erik said. “The Ekos and QuickBooks integration puts me back into a supervisor and steering role versus day-to-day data entry.”

Erik and the North Jetty team are looking forward to improving the business’s standard operating procedures for raw materials inventory handling, production, ordering, and invoicing in Ekos.

“At Ekos, we’re all about empowering our customers’ growth,” said Ekos CEO Josh McKinney. “North Jetty Brewing is on that upward trajectory, and we look forward to growing with them going forward.”
