Oskar Blues BreweryCraft brewery seeks a seamlessly integrated inventory management and eCommerce platform solution for increased customer satisfaction

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (October 6, 2016) — HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today that Oskar Blues Brewery has selected the HighJump™ Brewer’s Edge warehouse management solution (WMS) and eCommerce platform. Oskar Blues Brewery, based in Longmont, Colo., is the first American craft brewery to put its own craft beer in cans and has expanded from one brewery to three with additional locations in North Carolina and Texas.

Oskar Blues Brewery previously had two separate systems for inventory control and eCommerce that were unable to efficiently communicate. Having these unintegrated solutions that could not scale with growth caused its beer distribution in all 50 U.S. states to become a logistical puzzle. By implementing HighJump Brewer’s Edge, the craft brewery will achieve real-time inventory visibility to provide accurate information of available products to internal and external customers.

HighJump Brewer’s Edge WMS and eCommerce platform are cloud-based, functionality-rich modules of the HighJump AccellosOne WMS and Nexternal eCommerce platform to streamline brewery operations from order capture to fulfillment through delivery.

“Not having that real-time snapshot of available inventory caused immense extra work for our employees who would have to manually update the systems,” said Logan Craven, VP of finance at Oskar Blues Brewery. “We now have the opportunity to reinvest in our business instead of additional resources needed to maintain the infrastructure.”

“HighJump Brewer’s Edge is connecting the entire craft brewing industry through our integrated network,” said Jackson Bilbrey, VP of product management at HighJump. “We are excited to partner with Oskar Blues Brewery to deliver specialized configurations exclusively designed for the craft brewing industry allowing for its operations to reach that next level.”
