You've been entrusted with packaging your craft brew to get it to your ultimate fans. You've got the equipment and the inventory, but how do you make sure the process keeps moving smoothly day after day? Bringing planning to the forefront of your team's agenda helps ensure you have everything your team needs. Ekos has many features that will help your team, including forecasting for materials, packaging plans, task management, and custom reporting. Learn more below.
Forecasting your ingredients and packaging materials is important to maintaining a consistent production schedule. With the forecasting tool in Ekos, you can view the anticipated ingredient and item usage by category based on the batches planned by the production team.
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 brewing calendar, allowing your team (especially sales) to see the anticipated finished good inventory coming down the line.
Our craft brewery software treats all batches as projects, allowing you to assign packaging tasks to your team or to individual users. The task management feature allows you more control over the operational workflow and the ability to verify tasks are being completed.
Ekos offers detailed, customizable reports that provide information on all areas of the business. These reports can be turned into dashboards, allowing for greater insight into packaging plans, ingredient and packaging item usage, and customer demand.
