OrchestratedBEER Customers to Talk at SAPPHIRENOW Conference

PORTLAND, Ore. – Orchestra Software President, Brad Windecker will join a moderated panel discussion at the upcoming SAPPHIRENOW 2014 business technology conference in Orlando, Fla., June 3-5.

Windecker will join Orchestra Software customers Conner Helton, Assistant Controller of Avery Brewing Company, and Paul Burgis, CFO of Golden Road Brewing Company as they discuss cloud technology, innovation and OrchestratedBEER, an all-in-one brewery management software solution built on the SAP Business One platform.

Helton will present real-world examples of utilizing information technology such as iPads on the brewery floor, web based beer production scheduling and ERP brewery management software in a cloud-hosted environment to facilitate expansion in a growing brewery environment.

Burgis will discuss the process of selecting cloud-based OrchestratedBEER brewery management software at the early stages of the business and how the software has scaled to meet the increasing demands of a rapidly growing craft brewery.

During the three day event, both Helton and Burgis will also be interviewed by the technology writers and industry analysts interested in how small businesses leverage technology and software.

“It’s an honor to have our customers at SAPPHIRENOW, the world’s largest business technology event…” said Windecker. “Both Avery and Golden Road are experiencing extraordinary growth and pride themselves on leveraging IT to support their expansion and set the stage for further growth in the future. OrchestratedBEER customers are the best run craft breweries in the country, so it’s great to have the technology press recognize their achievements and innovation.”

A webcast of the three-day event will be available publicly through a live stream on the SAPPHIRENOW website.
