CHARLOTTE, NC – Summit Seltzer, one of the world’s first artisanal seltzeries, relies on Ekos to manage production, inventory, accounting and sales. The Seltzery, which opened in Charlotte, NC in September 2020, implemented Ekos prior to opening to ensure all details of the business could be tracked in one central location.
With Ekos, Summit Seltzer can:
- Coordinate the production plans and plan the coming batches
- Understand COGS, product margins, and other key business metrics
- Just complete the excise reports for the TTB
- Manage and forecast inventory and sales
“We have loved working with Ekos so far. It’s an all-round production assistant who takes care of everything, ”said Kristin Cagney, founder of Summit Seltzer. “Ekos contains all the information that is important to me as the owner – sales, production, inventory. Every part of the business sees the benefits of Ekos. “
Summit Seltzer’s success marks a change in the craft industry as many consumers seek gluten-free, low-carb alternatives to craft beer, spirits, or wine. Summit offers an alternative product but in a familiar brewery that benefits the community.
“When we started Ekos in 2014, some of our first customers were local breweries in our hometown of Charlotte. These relationships have been vital to improving our product and expanding our capabilities, ”said Josh McKinney, CEO of Ekos. “It’s so exciting to welcome another Charlotte-based craftsman to the Ekos family. We are amazed at the buzz that Summit Seltzer has generated in a short period of time and can’t wait to see how the community continues to greet the Craft Seltzer movement. “
