Modern Inventory Management For Craft Breweries


Brewery Inventory Management: Track Kegs, Control Inventory, Manage Production Process


QR Inventory utilizes new technologies: QR codes, mobile, cloud, smartphones - to make brewery inventory management process efficient and affordable.
QR Inventory will help you control all aspects of your brewery operations, keep accurate records of brewery inventory and production process. Manage brewery inventory, including raw materials, bottled and kegged beer. Use batch / lot numbers tracking for components traceability. Be prepared in the case of the recall - immediately identify batches of beer that used a certain component, and where these batches were distributed.
Track beer kegs through the entire cycle, from washing, filling and storage to the distributor and back. Always know where your kegs are, and when they need to be returned.
Track production process step by step: what batches of beer are currently in production, when each batch was started, what production stages it went through, what ingredients were used, et., etc.
Use mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) to track inventory, kegs and operations on the brewery floor or warehouse in real time. Use barcode scanning for fast data processing, mobile forms to collect information. All collected data are sent to a centralized cloud location, and are instantly available to the office employees on the desktop computers and to the field employees on the mobile devices.
  

Brewery Inventory Management: From Raw Materials To Bottled And Kegged Beer

Track beer inventory, including bottled and kegged beer, as well as raw materials inventory (hop, malt, yeast, etc.) by scanning QR code label on the packaging or keg. Get a real time view of current warehouse(s) inventory and inventory in production, as well as inventory flow history and volumes. Transfer inventory between warehouses. Set re-order level and receive low inventory alerts globally and by warehouse - make sure you always have optimum supplies of the ingredients and the finished product.
  

Inventory Traceability

Track produced beer and ingredients by batch number / lot number. Track the entire production history of each batch - what ingredients were used, what production stations it went through, and other necessary details for each production step. In case of a problem or contamination, quickly find affected products and where / when they were distributed.
  

Track Beer Production Process

Use mobile data collection module to track production process from start to finish. Create custom workflow(s) via a web dashboard for tracking beer production operations. Define workflow steps, and what should be done on each step.
Your employees will be able to access all relevant information on the beer batch on their smartphone: when it was started, current production status, what was done before, what should be done now. They will be able to record all steps that they perform, and move a batch to the next step. Optionally designated employee(s) can receive an e-mail alerting them on the status change.
Administrators get a real time view of the batches in progress, the current production step, the entire history of the current and past beer batches.
  

Mobile Forms For Beer Production Tracking

Create custom mobile forms via the web interface, and your employees will be able to fill them out on the smartphone. Link forms to the workflow, so your employees know exactly when they need to fill out a specific form. Include instructions and images in the forms to clarify what needs to be recorded and reported.
Employees on site can fill out mobile forms, take photos and attach to the forms for visual documentation, collect electronic signatures and create pdf documents based on your template.
Review the history of each batch production, including forms that were filled out on each production step, via the administrative dashboard. Use multiple filters to quickly find information that you need.
  

Track Beer Kegs Through The Brewery Production Cycle

Track beer kegs through the entire production cycle using a smartphone or a tablet for barcode scanning and data entry. Track when each keg goes to cleaning, refilling, storage, to the distributor and when it is returned back to the brewery. Web dashboard provides a real time view of the kegs: where each keg is located, what style of beer it is filled with, its life-time movements history, how long it had been at the current location. Receive alerts if keg is not returned on time, reduce kegs loss.
  

Raw Materials Demand And Production Estimates

Use bill of materials / assemblies and kits module to create table of ingredients required to produce a unit (e.g. barrel) of beer for each beer style. Calculate how many units you can produce from the raw materials currently available in the inventory. Create a list of materials that you need to order for a desired production output (e.g. what do you need to order to produce X barrels of beer A).
  

Track Beer Batches

Track each batch of beer from start to finish: which ingredients were used, production steps and dates, and how it was distributed (whether it was bottled, kegged and to what customer(s) did it go). Define what exactly do you want to track for each batch via the web interface, use smartphones to collect required information on site. Achieve full batch control and traceability. Easily locate when and where beer from a specific batch was distributed. Break down warehoused beer inventory by production date, see which batch should get out of the warehouse first.
  

Track Beer Production Equipment Cleaning And Maintenance

Make sure your production equipment is always in a good shape. Use custom mobile forms to track equipment cleaning and maintenance. Set reminders, and receive automatic alerts when next cleaning or preventive maintenance should be performed.
  

Purchase Orders & Invoicing

Use accounting module of QR Inventory to automatically generate purchase orders, track materials delivery and generate invoices based on the inventory transactions.
