You've been entrusted with packaging your product to get it to your ultimate fans. This is no light feat - not to include there are multiple ways a customer can consume your beverage. Bringing planning to the forefront of your team's agenda - to make sure you have everything needed to make things go off with a hitch - is not a small task and involves multiple departments. Ekos has 4 features that will help your team forecast materials needed, know packaging plans, create tasks for the team, and give you customized reporting. Learn how below.
Forecasting your ingredients and packaging materials is important to maintaining a consistent production schedule. With the forecasting tool in Ekos, you can view the anticipated ingredient and item usage by category - based on the batches planned by the production team.
Adding packaging plans for each batch allows you to estimate the finished good products that will come from a specific batch. These plans feed into your forecasting tool, allowing your team (especially sales) to see the anticipated finished good inventory coming down the line.
Ekos treats all batches as projects – allowing you to assign packaging tasks to your team or to individual users. The task management feature allows you more control over the operational workflow and the ability to verify tasks are being completed.
Ekos offers detailed, customizable reports that provide information on all areas of the business. These reports can be turned into dashboards, allowing for greater insight into packaging plans, ingredient and packaging item usage, and customer demand
