How Proprietary Barrel ERP Software Is Tailored for Wineries

The new Moss Adams proprietary software is designed to enable a winery to manage various aspects of a business in a single solution. For years, comparable customized enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for breweries, agriculture, and other industries have been streamlining how companies integrate data across functions, generate real-time insights, and make more informed decisions.

Barrel ERP for wine is a tool that can support a winery’s success. If wineries would like to keep their current point of sale or existing production software, they can. Moving everything over to Barrel ERP isn’t required.

What Is the Benefit of Using a Custom ERP?

The Moss Adams Barrel ERP software allows wineries to replace separate accounting, production, and warehouse systems with a single platform that also incorporates many of the spreadsheets that often reside in Excel.

Because an assortment of functions are integrated into one solution, those who manage the operations at the winery can have visibility across the entire business, gaining real-time insights to make smarter, more timely decisions instead of always looking in the rearview mirror. Winery management can control each user’s access level, which is critical for family businesses that keep financials closely held.

“We started with NetSuite, a software platform that handles generic processes like accounting, warehousing, inventory management and other essential functions. Then, we added functionality specifically for wineries.”

What Are Value-Added Functions of Barrel ERP for Wineries?

Value-added functions include packaging, production and wine quality, and dashboards cover wine-specific processes and needs, such as:

  • Grower and wine production reports include grape sources, production counts, juice on hand by vintage, brand, and varietal, and where it is in the process—in the tank, the cellar, warehouse, or out the door.
  • Wine quality reports show winemaking metrics, including pH, total acidity, volatile acidity, SO2 levels, and brix and alcohol levels.
  • Cost of goods (COG) reporting delivers accurate figures in real time, including your different brands, distribution channels, or varietals that a winery manages.

What Can You Expect from the Implementation Process?

During implementation, Moss Adams tailors dashboards and reports with information most relevant to each user, whether they’re the chief financial officer, the tasting room manager, a salesperson negotiating with a distributor, or staff in the back office handling accounting, purchasing, or operations.

Since all data is integrated into one system, the team uses the same information from a single source of truth, so salespeople see the actual inventory on hand in real-time, what’s selling now along with up-to-date predictions about what they’ll sell in the future.
