Upgraded functionality with impactful new features will improve production workflow and provide better visibility
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 24, 2022) – Ekos, a comprehensive business management software for wineries, is introducing a brand-new experience for wine production within its software. Over the next three months, Ekos will release a series of new features within the production module. The updates will transform the current workflow to provide winemakers a platform for efficiently tracking production from intake through case goods.
Ekos is the only software on the market that empowers wineries to manage their entire businesses from harvest to the bottom line. Beyond production data, Ekos provides a centralized hub for inventory management, accounting, and sales channel management. Ekos’s software helps wineries solve essential business problems like setting the right prices based on COGS; optimizing DTC, wholesale, and on-premise sales; and forecasting based on market demand.
“Many wineries are still using spreadsheets or simple production software to manage business operations. Without an end-to-end solution to connect their data, they are getting left behind in today’s competitive landscape,” said Ekos CEO Josh McKinney. “Our revamped production features combined with our existing functionality mean Ekos is a system unlike any other in the wine market. Our software offers winemakers and winery owners unparalleled insights into the metrics that matter when you’re trying to build a brand that lasts.”
Over the next few months, Ekos will roll out features that improve the current wine production experience based on direct feedback from winemakers, managers and owners. The updates are tailored to the winemaker’s workflow and will provide increased visibility into the production process. With the new production platform in Ekos, winemakers can:
- Manage grape intake and blocks
- Monitor wine composition data
- Track chemistry
- Keep tabs on work orders and team tasks
- Understand COGS and how costs change over time
- View lot volume and vessel locations
- Gain clarity on lot history
In addition to managing production, Ekos helps connect all aspects of a winery business in a single system — including inventory, sales, accounting and reporting. Businesses who use Ekos are able to drive efficiencies, streamline communication, power growth and improve visibility.
