Task Management for Teams & Individuals

Ekos treats all batches as projects – allowing you, the head honcho, to break out the batch into specific tasks. With the freedom to assign tasks to your team members, you gain full visibility into each step of the batch process and your brewery floor.

  • View the batch from a high level overview or expand into a detailed format
  • Have individual task lists per user - allowing for focused work
  • Schedule batch events and inventory removal, such as dry hopping on the exact day it happens


Updated Real-Time Inventory by Location

Understanding where your inventory is at all times is imperative to the planning process. Ekos brewing software updates your inventory in real time when ingredients are used in batches or finished goods are created. Having live data available at the click of a button lets you rest easy that you're on track.

  • With a simple click on the facility view, check inventory in each storage location
  • Run reports on current inventory - whether raw materials or finished goods
  • See real time updates as multiple users are working in the system


Forecasting Tools for Raw Material Usage

Forecasting your ingredients is important to maintaining a consistent production schedule. With the forecasting tool in Ekos, you can view the anticipated ingredient usage by category based on the batches you have planned.

  • Filter by month, week, or year to get specific on the dates you want to see
  • Understand where your ingredients are falling below your set reorder threshold
  • Click into specific columns to see details on associated purchase orders, inventory receipts, or batches


Packaging Plans for Each Batch

Adding packaging plans for each batch allows you to estimate the finished good products that will come from a specific batch. These plans feed into your forecasting tool, allowing your team (especially sales) to see the anticipated finished good inventory coming down the line.

  • Plan out specific quantities, in specific packaging types
  • View the quantity planed versus quantity packaged, to know if you met your goal
  • Feed into the forecasting tool, allowing you to see the difference between quantities packaged versus quantity on invoices. You know where you may fall short.
