The quality of our beer is our most important business issue. We want to be able to produce the beer we want and still make a margin.Paul Burgis, COO and CFO, Golden Road Brewing
A Brewing Veteran Points the Way
Golden Road’s goal was to become a sustainable craft beer business. The company hired Paul Burgis, a veteran of Anheuser Busch, to run its operations. Paul knew the value of SAP through his previous experience, and introduced Golden Road to OrchestratedBEER, a system from SAP partner Orchestra Software that is built on the SAP Business One application. It turned out to be the right solution.
Enter SAP: The SAP Experience
In fact, Golden Road realized a complete return on investment in six months.
Golden Road now uses OrchestratedBEER to map every process, and the solution fulfills a critical need by giving management anytime mobile access to key brewery information. For example, the system can tell brewers what raw materials they need, how much they need, and when to buy them. The result is lower costs, effective inventory management, and more accurate business forecasts.
