The software’s core features include automated accounting, inventory tracking, production management, production scheduler, Material Requirement Planning (MRP), Supply Chain Management, Sales Order Fulfillment, CRM, and TTB reporting. The company has an automated accounting system where the team pre determines how the transactions and the financial flow throughout the system, based on the different processes that occur daily, throughout the brewery.

OrchestratedBeer has full accounting functionality that eliminates the need for book keeping software. The company automates journal entries as each process occurs, in order to provide instantaneous financial views of the business. “As production, purchasing and sales occur, we automatically create system generated journal entries behind the scenes to account for financial changes in the business,” explains Brad Windecker, President and CEO, OrchestratedBEER.

This is not only crucial for traceability but also depends on how the system automatically populates Brewer’s Report of operations for Future Reporting.
