Highland Brewery found its solution with VicinityBrew Built on Microsoft Dynamics 365, a scalable brewery management software system from Vicinity Software.
Highland Brewing is a regional company brewing various beers for distribution in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia. Highland Brewing began in 1994 and has grown to be the largest independent, family-owned brewery native to the area. The owners wanted to harness technology that would streamline their operations while they continued to craft and distribute their specialized products. They wanted brewery management software that would integrate seamlessly into their ERP accounting system. They were also looking for an efficient way to save recipes, log their consumption of raw materials, and track completed batch runs.
Megan McArthur, Highland Brewing’s Accounting and Production Data Specialist, shared her company’s reaction to their new software:
“VicinityBrew has streamlined our raw material and finished goods tracking and keeps our inventory levels up to date, which saves us on labor to track that manually. It also allows us to track batch yields and identify/troubleshoot variances in our production processes, which helps us continue improving our production efficiency.”
Determined to find a solution that would integrate seamlessly with their Microsoft Dynamics GP accounting system, Highland Brewing investigated several software solutions and found none that integrated as efficiently as VicinityBrew
The Vicinity Software team examined every aspect of Highland Brewery’s business. They connected departments across finance, sales, production, and distribution with a feature-rich cohesive, centralized system. From managing raw materials to creating a complete cost breakdown, VicinityBrew gives Highland the tools and flexibility to meet the rapidly changing demands of the brewing industry.
