When distilleries sign on with OrchestratedSPIRITS they’ll go through an installation and training process called Implementation. For our cloud-based OnDemand subscription model we developed an efficient implementation processes called Fast Track Implementation. It takes place in a short period of time so distilleries can get up and running using industry best practices that have been established by nearly 160 breweries running sister product OrchestratedBEER. OrchestratedSPIRITS isn’t just software; it’s also an adoption of time tested, industry best practices forged by the world’s best-run breweries and distilleries.
How is OrchestratedSPIRITS’ Implementation Different?
OrchestratedSPIRITS OnDemand is not an “off the shelf” ERP software. We’ve already done 100% of the customization and rolled it up into an all-in-one cloud-based solution using the best business practices. With our industry experienced team, we cut straight to the point and simply configure our solution with your recipes, items, pack types, styles/brands, SKU’s, customers/vendors and etc; so you can start gaining the benefits of OSpirits immediately.
How is OrchestrateSPIRITS’ implementation method faster?
Distilleries often have very similar requirements and processes. Implementation projects for these like-type businesses follow consistent paths and derived outcomes. We are able to deliver a solution that will meet the needs of these like-type businesses quickly and efficiently by eliminating the inevitable customization decisions, identifying like-type requirements and following a prescriptive implementation approach. OnDemand’s Fast Track Implementation makes software affordable by:
- Standardizing processes
- Replacing services w/ software & automation
- Training simultaneous companies
- Maintaining the human element
- Applying a 6-week timeframe
How do we train users?
We’ve customized a live, online curriculum presented by our implementation specialists to train OSpirit OnDemand users. Multiple customers join these monthly classroom webinars to walk through various scenarios they will encounter and how to utilize OrchestratedSPIRITS software. The specialist answers questions, provides advice and suggests best practices in real-time.
Traditional implementations always runs the risk of missing deadline and going over budget. We’ve done this long enough to know that sh** happens sometimes – things break, other projects fall behind, equipment doesn’t arrive or permits aren’t approved on-time. We get it. With our Fast Track Implementation, we run 12 tracks a year. If at any time you start to fall behind the training schedule, you can simply push out and join the next training track the following month without worry of additional charges.
The “core-curriculum” in these online classes remains the same month-to-month and regardless of class size. Feel confident that as you grow and hire new employees, or someone needs a refresher, you just let us know and they can join the next training class for no charge.
Creating a community
An additional benefit of the classroom style is the sense of community developed between the distilleries going through the implementation process. Just like the peers you had in school, there’s often a sense of community developed when you’re all striving towards the same goal.
Why Fast Track makes sense
Our Fast Track Implementation is efficient and allows us to pass those savings on to the customer. Distilleries can’t afford to spend 18 months implementing ERP software. It needs to be fast, affordable and simple without cutting corners.
It all comes down to being efficient with the talent we have and relying more on technology without removing too much of the human element.
