Simplify operations, maximize functionality, and mitigate risks: OrchestratedBEER™

They're the tried-and-true ingredients of good beer: barley, hops, and a custom-built software application.

Maybe that's not the exact recipe, but it's true. A growing community of craft breweries use an application called OrchestratedBEER™ (OBeer) to run the less appealing aspects of their day-to-day business, such as inventory, production, accounting, invoicing, and TTB reporting. The all-in-one brewery management software solution was developed specifically for small and midsize craft brewers.

Who is OrchestratedBEER™

Launched in 2011, OBeer now consists of 230+ breweries around the country including startup, local, regional and national size customers. OBeer includes features such as automated accounting, real-time inventory, quality control, production scheduling, and automated TTB creation. Word has spread quickly through the flourishing industry. Its main premise is providing the core foundation for breweries to help grow the business from the first barrel produced to the millionth.

Though this bearded, brazen, and beer loving crowd isn’t typically IT savvy, their approach to business software is quite common among other small business owners who are embracing the cloud. No servers. No IT staff. No spreadsheets.

How OBeer helps

OBeer is an “all-in-one” business management software solution that helps you manage every aspect of your brewery from accounting in the back office, to iPads on the brewery floor. OBeer solves the common problems that breweries of all different sizes encounter as a result of using convoluted spreadsheets, limited bookkeeping software, white boards, pen & paper, and other makeshift tools. It consolidates information in one centralized location to reduce unnecessary work, eliminate dual-entry, increase transparency, and streamline processes.
