Discover the partnership between Drink-IT and Einbecker
The Einbeck brewery is located in the heart of this half-timbered town in Lower Saxony with an output of 550,000 hectolitres, a turnover of 31 million euros and more than 130 employees. When it was time for an updated IT solution, they counted on Drink-IT!
Pre-Drink-IT problems that needed solving
Microsoft Dynamics NAV was highly appreciated by the users, so the Einbecker Brauhaus was looking for a solution that was again based on NAV, now called Business Central. This was not only to replace the old environment, with all the required functionalities of the beverage industry and supplementary applications, such as the connection of a document archiving system or an interface to an external production and scanning application. On top of that, the aim was to optimise financial management and reporting. Furthermore, areas such as contract management were to be integrated with topics such as loans and permanent loans.
The transformation with Drink-IT
In a joint workshop with users and management, NORRIQ was able to convince with the Drink-IT solution. The brewery therefore decided in favour of Drink-IT in February 2019. Nine months later, in November 2019, the system change was completed. In a cooperative partnership and in close coordination, the rollout was implemented within the estimated investment budget.
Be it sales, purchasing, financial and asset accounting, beer tax, electronic payment transactions including association regulation, advance telephone sales, refunds, deposit man-agement, fixed asset management, price conditions, con-tract management - Drink-IT covers all functions important to the industry. Not only for medium-sized breweries like Einbecker, but also for other smaller companies. Further seamless connections to industry solutions such as cost and performance accounting, document archiving or an established EDI data traffic solution complete the picture.
Mr Martin Deutsch, member of the board of directors of Einbecker Brauhaus AG, comes from Fürstenfeldbruck near Munich. After completing a brewery apprenticeship and studying brewing and business administration, he knows what is important for an ERP system in a brewery: "In particular, the brewery-specific requirements, such as the complete documentation of beer tax, the correct handling of deposits and the administration and processing of gastronomy loans and borrowings have been implemented to our complete satisfaction".
