Always improving, top notch support, and great for the price.

Pros

It does everything we need, and is cloud based which is fantastic. Integrates with the other systems we need it to as well.

Cons

Wish it was a bit faster, and a bit more "web 2.0" in that there are a lot of clicks needed to get to certain places. A little unintuitive at times, but it is always getting better.

Best Brewery Software for Quickbooks Integration

We are very pleased with the overall Ekos experience, which is light years ahead of our previous software and allows us to unlock greater productivity and organization without paying for a centralized ERP system.

Pros

The software interface is extremely user friendly, resulting in faster implementation and more employee productivity.

Cons

I would love to see graphing functions added as we enter alot of data into the software that could readily be converted into visuals for production, sales, and quality control.

Reasons for choosing Ekos

The cost was lower than some of the centralized ERP systems we reviewed, and by allowing us to maintain existing accounting software our onboarding/training process was smoother.

Reasons for switching to Ekos

The older software was failing to accurate track cost of goods, and support was waning.

Not worth it

Negative. Top two reasons are:1. Horrible customer service.2. Winery management portion of Ekos was majorly lacking and difficult to use.

Pros

The shining light of Ekos is the ability to invoice and their inventory management

Cons

a lot of the functionality was difficult to use and their customer service was almost no help in figuring it out. 40-60 emails to figure out one problem.

Brewery Review

Inventory levels are viewed easily - beer that's in the tanks.

Pros

Brings everything to one place! Very helpful for all departments

Cons

Would like to customize it a bit more for our needs. We have a taphouse attached which we give product to. Also customizing reports - wish that was a little easier. Customizing a customer tracking report would be nice.

Reasons for choosing Ekos

Price point, functions it had - promise of continuous improvements

Response from ekos

Hi Esther, Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with Ekos and look forward to continuing to provide a positive user experience through monitoring your inventory levels.
