As a head brewer or head cider maker, you work hard to produce the best craft beer or cider for your customers. Our production management software can help with task management, real-time inventory updates, forecasting tools for raw materials, and packaging plans for each batch — so you can be more efficient and focus on making the beverages you love.
Ekos treats all batches as projects, allowing you 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 or cidery floor. You can assign production tasks as well as maintenance, cleaning, inventory checks, and packaging.
Gone are the days of manually updating your inventory spreadsheet after brewing or fermenting a batch. Instead, you can create and save recipe templates, add all your ingredients for your batch into Ekos, and inventory will be automatically depleted as you brew. Even with many batches going at once, you'll be able to easily plan batches.
Forecasting your ingredients is important for 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.
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.
