our story_

From developing a business management software that redefined how craft brewmasters keep track of their brew process and manage their breweries, to advancing the affordability and ease-of-use of such software for craft-based businesses, ekos_ has long been on the forefront of creating software tools for craft makers that enables them to function like the big dogs — but we love representing the underdogs.

We are ekos_. Here's how it all started...

Continue reading...

It all started in a craft brewery. We were captivated by the quality of this new micro brewing process. The craft and skill. It was inspiring to watch the brewers work. However, in conversation with them we discovered that as their breweries grew their brewing process quickly became over-complicated. We heard stories of copious clipboards and spreadsheets. Under the surface it was chaos running a successful craft brewery. It was shocking that this emerging craft beer industry lacked the fundamental tools to run an efficient business. 

But then we started to see that their only options to tame this chaos with traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems were too expensive and intense to fit the brewmaster's needs. So we turned our [other] love, for software development, toward creating a business management software carefully crafted for the specific needs of craft brewmasters. We called it Ekos Brewmaster. 

As we grew to collaborate with more than 1,000 breweries, other emerging craft-based businesses—from Kombucha brewers, to cider makers to coffee roasters—started reaching out to us and trying to customize Ekos Brewmaster for their crafts. Now, we are making a move to fill these needs and to do our part in supporting the entire craft movement.

We are developing a collection of business management software systems that are customized for specific niche craft markets, starting with the craft beverage industry. We're calling them ekos_systems. ekos_brewmaster is our flagship and is still growing strong. Others, including ekos_wineries and ekos_cideries, will be released soon.
