When was the last time you lost a keg? It was probably recently given industry trends. If you wait long enough, you might see it pop up for sale on a local marketplace.
Over the past few years, kegs have become a popular trend for home décor. Even a brief glance at Pinterest or Instagram will reveal dozens of photos of kegs converted into seating, grills, birdbaths, or planters.
Unfortunately, the demand for kegs as décor has led to a rise in thefts. In 2019, U.S. breweries lost as much as $35 million from lost kegs, according to the Brewer’s Association. Some of these cases are innocent – restaurants or pubs misunderstanding their obligation to return empty kegs. In other instances, large-scale thefts (losing more than 70 kegs at a time) cost breweries upwards of $20,000 for each occurrence.
No matter how a keg goes missing, brewers shoulder the replacement costs. Minimize these additional costs with an Empties Management component built into Enavation Cloud: Drink-IT by NORRIQ. With this Cloud ERP offering, you can see where your materials are at every stage of production, including the location of your empty kegs.
Manual inventory tracking is tedious, prone to inaccuracies and often doesn’t provide answers when keg numbers don’t match records. The most difficult time to track kegs is when they are empty and outside of your possession.
A Cloud-based ERP system can solve this problem by tracking materials and inventory levels in real-time. You can always see where your kegs are in your production line, at a restaurant, or in a truck on the way back to your brewery.
Drink-IT by NORRIQ’s Empties Management app gives you control of managing empties at customer locations.
Using IoT means you can incorporate any physical item connected to the internet or a similar digital network. Several IoT items can improve your ability to track supplies and materials.
Enavation Cloud: Drink-IT by NORRIQ uses IoT technology to enhance your tracking capabilities from raw materials to finished goods. Additionally, if some of your kegs are misplaced or stolen, the combination of smart labels and inventory management apps, such as Empties Management, will help you quickly locate and recover your assets.
Tracking kegs is vital for maximizing profits and improving loss prevention. ERP systems for beverage producers provide valuable insight into that and other aspects of your business, such as raw materials tracking, beverage consumption at point-of-use locations, and batch recall and traceability (if needed).
Your ERP system will also help you organize batches by raw materials used, production timelines and point-of-use locations. With this, you can see precisely where your batches are in the production cycle and what ingredients were used. This function makes it easier to recall particular batches if you discover a production issue or harmful component.
A beverage industry-specific ERP system in the Cloud will help you avoid unexpected losses and plan. Enavation Cloud: Drink-IT by NORRIQ provides craft brewers with a technology solution to improve operations and enhance brewery profitability.
