I'm already using Ekos / Orchestrated Beer / Dear Inventory / Unleashed. How do you differ?

Beer30 is more than an inventory management system - it is designed to focus on full grain-to-glass tracking with an emphasis on the brew process and quality and Bucha30 is designed to focus on full tea-to-glass tracking. While most of our customers decide to switch entirely from a competitor, because of the modularity of our system, you have the option to keep a competitor and just use a few of our modules on brew process and quality analysis.

Can Beer30 / Bucha30 help me remove my paper brew log?

Yes! One of our key modules is an entirely digital brew process page! Most of our clients use a tablet for real-time data tracking!

What about sales tracking?

With Beer30 and Bucha30, each of your sales reps can have their own login and can track their own account health! As the owner, this becomes super helpful to help compare different metrics!
