Halo announced that Summit Brewing Company has licensed Halo’s SkuBrain solution to automatically import VIP depletions and improve the speed and accuracy of the brewery’s sales and production forecasting. SkuBrain delivers demand forecasting, inventory optimization, and replenishment planning for small to mid-size beverage suppliers and distributors.
Summit’s 100+ employees work in a multifaceted facility on a 6-acre campus in St. Paul, Minn. The brewery shipped approximately 120,000 barrels in 2016, primarily to Midwestern states. Summit’s operations and sales executives wanted to implement a simple forecasting system that would account for key market variables and save time. Summit chose SkuBrain based on strong internal consensus and the platform’s ability to quickly deliver a positive return on investment.
