For industries like craft beverage, it's common to encounter businesses that claim they don't need software to manage their business, sales, and other critical aspects until some distant future date. The prevailing notion seems that they'll consider implementing such solutions "when they get bigger." But the challenge for any brewery or distillery owner is that there is never enough time in the day. When they aren’t putting out fires or making beer, a hundred other tasks fill the week. So the problem is two-fold: not thinking you are big enough to get the value and not having the time to explore whether you might already be at a point to start getting the value of a software solution.
While adopting new software can seem daunting, viewing it as an investment rather than an expense is essential for today’s challenging economic times. In the face of increased competition and a rapidly expanding market, breweries and distilleries must seize the opportunity to innovate. The investment in innovation, software, equipment, training, etc. that helps business grow or maintain in the years to come as the once seemingly safe approach of “if it’s not broke - don’t fix it” no longer holds value. Talk to any brewery that has been around for 10+ years, and they will bring up innovation as to why they are still here today. Without innovation, you run the risk of making your passion unsustainable and potentially hindering the business from reaching it’s full potential.
However, every successful small business must seek experts who can provide valuable insights and answer tough questions. Experts can bring a wealth of knowledge and innovative solutions tailored to the industry, allowing breweries and distilleries to make well-informed decisions.
