Barrel ERP for Wineries: Enhance Business Operations and Decision-Making

Gain real-time visibility across your winery, automate manual processes, and link data flow throughout departments with Barrel ERP—an end-to-end NetSuite application designed specifically for the business needs of wineries and vineyards.

Barrel ERP can help drive down costs, enhance productivity, and save time and resources by implementing a single source-of-truth platform that automates key processes and collects and organizes data into one system to make reporting easy and effective.

Barrel ERP can seamlessly connect front-of-house retail and back-of-house production operations—as well as your accounting functions—to consolidate and cross-report key business data and systems. Transform your operations with Barrel ERP so you can stay focused on what matters most: making and distributing great wine.

Comprehensive Visibility Across Your Organization

Too often wineries hamper productivity and strategic decision-making because they continue to use dated, difficult-to-manage, or nonintegrated systems that provide poor reporting.

Enhancing visibility into all areas of your company, Barrel ERP can help measure and maintain quality data on a consistent basis over the extended wine production cycle—as well as provide insight into what products to sell, where to sell them, and new investment opportunities. 

Key department and focus areas can include:

  • Sales and marketing. Measure sales across various marketing channels including direct-to-consumer, distributors, wholesale, and more to understand customer demographics and buying history; identify sales by channel, brand, varietal, location; and more.
  • Accounting. Collect and manage information for production and sales on which you pay taxes to enhance and automate tax reporting to the IRS. Report finances by brand and channel and evaluate cost of goods sold (COGS).
  • Production. Manage and gain visibility into your entire production process including tank and barrel measurement and tracking as well as volume production. Provide insights into entry and exit for each stage of your production process, document all quality management measurements, packaging, and transition to inventory.
  • Inventory. Assess tasting room, barrel room, or cave and other inventory, as well as finished good stock, and more with real-time COGS calculations provided to the accounting team for every item.
  • Warehouse. Manage all aspects of the warehouse including inventory tracking, lot management, and receipt and fulfillment.
  • Supply chain. Provide integrated and automated purchasing coordinated with production, and warehouse management to maintain inventory levels that meet production needs without incurring additional costs from holding excessive inventory.
