)-- Hood River Distillers, Inc., established in 1934 in Hood River, Oregon, recently selected ProcessPro® Premier ERP software for automating its beverage production. Hood Rivers started out making wines and brandies from the local apple, pear, and berry orchards. Today, Hood River Distillers is the largest and oldest importer and producer of a wide variety of distilled spirits.
“Hood River Distillers has a very unique manufacturing process in a highly regulated industry,” says Jake Halverson, ProcessPro Business Development Representative. “They need a fully-integrated, real time ERP solution to tie together information between scheduling, production, and quality control procedures, and to keep tabs on the manufacturing process throughout the whole facility.”
Hood River chose ProcessPro® Premier because of the software’s ability to handle warehouse maintenance and dock scheduling along with tax and trade regulations specific to liquor manufacturing.
Hood River also needs a software that could track lots from the moment materials came in the door, to ordering, through the warehouse, to shipping and receiving. They also strive to increase traceability giving them a better handle on inventory throughout the entire manufacturing process.
“Another key selling point for Hood River was ProcessPro’s various references and vast experience in the food and beverage manufacturing industry,” continues Halverson. “They wanted a solid business partner with proven industry success, and with ProcessPro, they got that.”
ProcessPro® Premier is a fully integrated, real time ERP that offers a complete system from beginning sales order entry through the manufacturing and accounting process.
