Ekos Software Partners with 150 Breweries in 8 Months


Charlotte, N.C. — Ekos, an enterprise software company, is seeing unprecedented growth in its craft brewery management software.

“Since launching Ekos Brewmaster in April 2014, we’ve seen an amazing response from the craft beer community,”said Greg Forehand, CEO of Ekos. “Over the past eight months we’ve partnered with more than 150 production breweries and are on track to top 400 breweries using the system by the end of 2015. Ekos Brewmaster was designed to suit craft breweries of all sizes, and we are now seeing that vision realized. With breweries ranging from nano-sized startups to well-established breweries with regional distribution, we are finding that the flexibility and affordability of the system gives every craft brewery an option to manage their day-to-day operations.”

Ekos not only attributes the growth of the product to its flexibility and affordability but also to the many features that come included. Each brewery is allowed unlimited users as well as access to Apple and Android apps that allow each employee to perform daily tasks from their tablet or mobile device.

Ekos Brewmaster Vice President, Josh McKinney, says that while 2014 was great for the growth of the product, 2015 will be even better: “As our product gained traction in the market, we added features for batch analytics, multiple brewery and location support, forecasting tools, and interactive floorplans that allow users to easily drag and drop their batches through the brewing process. We also added international units of measure to support our multiple international breweries. As we grow our product offering this year we will develop functionality that continues to bring everything a brewery needs to operate on one platform. When our product is combined with our amazing customer support we feel like we have a solution that can work for any craft brewery, no matter their size.”

Ekos Brewmaster is a cloud-based brewery management system that brings all of the different functions of the brewery from inventory, planning, beer production, and sales into one easily accessible platform. Brewmaster also integrates seamlessly with QuickBooks and automatically generates TTB reports, excise and sales tax reports.
