Brewery discovers an alternative ERP to better serve their business needs.
ATLANTA, GA, December 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Vicinity Manufacturing is pleased to announce that Figueroa Mountain Brewing has selected VicinityBrew, brewery management software.
Figueroa Mountain Brewing was founded in 2010 by Jim and Jaime Dietenhofer, father and son, in Buellton, CA. Jamie teamed with award winning Brewmaster A.J. Stoll, who has brought over 60 different awards for the breweries quality beers. Since opening their production brewery in Buellton Figueroa has expanded with two additional taproom's one in Santa Barba, CA and another in Los Olivos, CA.
Jim and Jaime Dietenhofer, have built their business with a "... culture that is focused on always improving ..." Figueroa Mountain saw the need to implement the proper tools to support growth early on. With this spirit the team invested in one of the industry's leading software suppliers, Orchestrated Beer. After a trial and error period with much needed effort, Figueroa Mountain found that their business needs could be suited better by anther solution and have since replaced Orchestrated Beer and transitioned to VicinityBrew.
"There were a number of reasons why we decided to replace our Brewery management system. We found the solution to be usable but not very user friendly, some features that were promised were never implemented, and others simply did not work. Overall, training was almost non-existent beyond our own troubleshooting.
I was drawn to VicinityBrew because of the strong integration and compatibility with MS Great Plains and other leading solutions. During our software evaluation we were able to get a clear picture of the products capabilities and our brewery's potential with the solution.
The VicinityBrew team has been really helpful in the initial phases of our implementation. Our brewers are very excited about our transition to VicinityBrew and find the solution to be much more straight forward compared to our past experience."
-Robert Cosio, Distribution Manager/IT Manager, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.
