U.S.-Based Specialty Malt and Ingredients Company Sets New Standards for Success with Purpose-Built Enterprise Resource Planning Solution

ALPHARETTA, GA, August 12, 2020 – Today, Aptean, a global provider of mission-critical enterprise software solutions, announced that Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. has selected its cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Aptean Food and Beverage ERP, to support growth through quality and innovation. Briess is a family-owned supplier of specialty malts and ingredients to customers in brewing, distilling and food manufacturing.

Founded in 1876 and based in the U.S., Briess sought a fully integrated and cloud-based enterprise solution that could support its growing operational, sales and marketing needs. Utilizing many critical business systems that operated in silos, the supplier needed a unified platform to manage all aspects of their operations within one system that offers the necessary visibility, tracking and control needed to take Briess’ unique business to the next level.

“At Briess, we treat every aspect of our business as a craft, from grower to technical expertise, to product management and manufacturing processes. While our company has grown significantly over the past 140 years, we remain committed to delivering solutions and services that are tailored to meet the specific needs of our customers. To achieve this level of service, we selected Aptean for its industry-specific food and beverage ERP—a cloud solution that will help us adopt new capabilities faster while reducing overhead costs, so that we can focus on building our business,” said Steve Carter, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Briess.

The malt and ingredients supplier will leverage Aptean Food and Beverage ERP’s industry-focused features to gain real-time insights, optimize traceability, improve production capabilities and enhance data integrity. Aptean’s ERP for food and beverage producers can also help Briess streamline workflows and increase efficiency for sales forecasting, supply chain management and budgeting.

Duane George, Chief Product Officer at Aptean, added, “Like us, Briess builds its business on the principle that they succeed only when their customers do—and when it comes to producing natural specialty ingredients for food and beer, the supplier is setting new standards for success by investing in technology that will better position them to pivot rapidly and scale their production to customer demand. Aptean is proud to support their journey with our Aptean Food and Beverage ERP cloud solution that is built specifically for the industry.”
