Orchestrated Services University: Week Six

It’s time for another Orchestrated Services University wrap up. Last week we continued to learn about the production process, diving deeper into how beer gets made in OrchestratedBEER, and every step any beer goes through in order to keep the detailed batch trace accurate. Any beer brewed through OBeer is batch traced, meaning that any given beer has it’s own digital paper trail tracking all the ingredients back down to the raw material.

Now that the implementation process has covered purchasing raw materials and producing beer, it’s time to get beer in the hands of the consumer. This week #OServicesU covered sales. OBeer is designed to help account for tap room sales, as well as both self-distribution and working with distributors.

OBeer works great in a tap room, since it connects with almost any point of sale system. This allows for easy imports of information into the software, in order to keep accurate track of the beers and stock you have on hand.

Of course not everything is perfect when you brew beer, so what happens if you’ve distributed beer to customers and realize it’s actually a bad batch? This isn’t a situation any brewery would want, though OBeer has you covered because you’re batch tracing from the moment raw materials enter a brew until they leave the brewhouse.

It’s less than two weeks until “Go Live,” for Spiral Brewery. Recipes have been set and it’s almost time for them to be live in the software.

With “Go Live” coming up, #OServicesU is also wrapping up. Six employees have had 6 hands-on weeks in the software, allowing us to have a better understanding and knowledge of what it takes to go through an On-Demand implementation, and a better understanding of how to navigate the software.

With one last week before “Go Live,” next week we’ll be diving into financials and banking.
