The first draft designs of our new brewery software mobile packaging and production app are here – and it’s going to revolutionize the way OrchestratedBEER customers use our software. “We’re changing the way breweries do business…” commented Brad Windecker, Orchestra’s President, during OBeer’s monthly all-hands meeting. Brad unveiled the initial design concepts for the OrchestratedBEER packaging app that will provide real-time communication of production orders between management and production line employees.
The entire OBeer team got a sneak peek at the iPad schematics and how the new iPad application will work for employees on the brewery floor. The app lets users quickly view pending production orders and process receipts from production. The layout keeps vital information on the screen at all times. Here’s a look at the pending design:
