never lose track of your kegs again with keg tracking

Stop losing money on missing kegs and stale beer that doesn’t sell. Ekos tracks your keg shells from the moment they’re filled to when they’re returned, per batch and per customer. Just scan the keg barcode, and Ekos begins tracking, alerting you when it’s past due.

Ekos connects each area of your brewery and every team member in one system, so can see the whole picture and everyone is on the same page. No more wasting time in massive spreadsheets, jotting down notes on clipboards, or trying to navigate a complicated ERP system. We present the data that matters most to you so you can track every step of the production process, make smarter decisions, and plan for the future.

keg tracking made easy

Keg tracking doesn’t have to be hard or an afterthought that impacts revenue. With Ekos, all you have to do is scan the barcode on each keg as soon as it’s filled. Our system tracks the keg number with its product and batch. 

With each sale and invoice, you’ll know which keg went to which customer and when. If the keg hasn’t been returned, you can notify your customer to see if it’s empty or expired, replenishing their supply to maintain sales and quality.
