The ability to import data from external systems directly into DRAMS has greatly reduced the time associated with entering new cask fillings and cask purchase deals, which has all but eliminated data input errors. DRAMS is an intuitive, user friendly system, and is a vital tool to our business in providing us with accurate and reliable stock control.

The DRAMS solution:
DRAMS supports Bulk Stocks Managers by providing all the information you require to meet bottling demands, while maximising efficiency of bulk stock processes and warehouse space. With DRAMS you have visibility of exactly where all stock is located – down to individual cask level. DRAMS gives you the control you need to manage tasks accurately and efficiently, saving time by eliminating costly errors. DRAMS can even complete your Government Excise Warehouse Returns, ensuring compliance.
Crucially, DRAMS is expandable and can be tailored to suit your specific requirements and working processes. For example, our integrated scanning solution (DRAMScan) enables you to scan stock into/out of locations and simplifies stocktaking; while our Long Term Planning module reduces the risks associated with planning spirit stocks, cask purchase and even warehouse construction.
