Contract manufacturing for your liquor business

In contract manufacturing or outsourced manufacturing, businesses outsource some or all parts of their manufacturing process. That’s generally done to reduce overheads, but it also allows companies to utilize well-established manufacturers with great expertise and proven methods.

Katana’s liquor inventory management software supports both workflows, whether you produce everything in-house or fully outsource the manufacturing process. When fully outsourcing, you need to order the raw materials and deliver these to your manufacturer to complete the manufacturing order.

You can also issue purchase orders, track materials in partner locations, and receive items with accurate cost values with Katana’s liquor inventory control software. This way, you can always stay on top of manufacturing even if all the processes are outsourced.

Liquor inventory software FAQs
What is a liquor inventory software?

Liquor inventory software is a software program that lets you keep track of your inventory counts and manage sales and purchase orders. Instead of using inventory spreadsheets, beverage inventory management software tracks all manufacturing, ordering, and sales data. Implementing an ERP for your inventory tracking helps you reduce costs and save valuable time while making sure you have accurate inventory levels.

What are the four types of inventory?

There are four types of inventory items that manufacturers can hold, these include:

  • Raw materials
  • Work-in-progress (WIP)
  • Subassemblies and components
  • Finished goods

Katana’s beverage inventory management system lets you track all four types of inventory, so you always have up-to-date inventory counts. With Katana’s inventory system you can also use a barcode scanner to quickly and efficiently count your raw materials and beverage inventory.

What are the different inventory control systems?

There are several inventory control systems available, starting from the most basic manual inventory and ending with perpetual inventory. With a manual inventory process, workers need to manually count inventory and mark it down on paper or a spreadsheet. Manually taking inventory is obviously very time-consuming and prone to errors.

On the other end of the scale is perpetual inventory. With that system, a software program counts inventory levels in real time. Whenever new purchase or sales orders come in, the system updates the stock levels, so you always know exactly the amount of product and raw materials at hand. This system can significantly reduce errors, save time, and reduce labor costs.
