OrchestratedBEER Partners With University of Portland


PORTLAND, OR — The University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business has selected Orchestra Software’s brewery management solution, Orchestrated®BEER, as the ERP platform for the Master Strategist Certification: Craft Beer Business.

Orchestra Software will provide its Orchestrated®BEER brewery management software solution as part of The Pamplin School of Business’ Strategic Operations and Controls curriculum. The course module introduces students to real-world systems and processes, from accounting in the back office to production on the brewery floor. Students will utilize Orchestrated®BEER software throughout the course, allowing them to experience the same business systems and controls as a modern craft brewery.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the University of Portland to bring the business side of craft beer to their students,” said Brad Windecker, President at Orchestra Software. “Students in this course will have a unique opportunity to get an inside look at how breweries operate using the same system used by craft breweries across the country.”

The course module mirrors training content and delivery methods Orchestrated®BEER brewery customers receive, providing course graduates with a distinct advantage in the craft beer job market. “Students in the program will gain real-world experience to supplement the conceptual learning,” added Windecker. “In an industry as unique as craft brewing, it’s important for the students to understand the systems breweries use to provide the foundation for operations and controls.”

The Master Strategist Certification: Craft Beer Business is an online self-guided program that runs throughout the year. Students can sign up for the program here: https://sites.up.edu/masterstrategist/

Orchestrated®BEER is the craft beer industry standard for brewery management software, with more than 180 brewery customers and 1,000 users worldwide.
