The Role of DRAMS
in a Modern Distillery
DRAMS offer’s complete control of maturing inventory, optimising all areas of your business operations, including the management of inventory movements and compliance reporting.
The system provides full tracking of all stock movements; warehouse rents and invoice production; monitoring of incidents and losses; blend optimisation and automated stock selection; and links with several third-party solutions tapping into additional data streams and generating real-time insights.
With a number of key features and benefits the DRAMS solution has something for everyone, including:
- Finance and Senior Management
- Warehousing & Maturation
Meeting the demand of today and seizing the opportunities of tomorrow is a significant challenge given the inbuilt delay in production caused by that most vital element of the process; barrel maturation. The outputs of today’s distillation efforts must spend years in barrels ageing to perfection before being ready for market.
When external and internal influences disrupt this delicate balance, distillers must be able to react quickly to changing market stimulus in order to effectively plan for the future.
With DRAMS Long-Term Planning Module you can proactively adjust your production strategy to meet demand several decades ahead. This module allows spirit producers to generate a month-by-month view of spirit requirements, aligning projected demand and production levels against changing inventory levels. The reports included with this module allow distilleries to identify inventory shortages or surpluses, monitor warehousing capacity over time, proactively amend production plans and monitor fluctuations in blend production costs due to inventory restrictions.
DRAMScan & Print
Simplify the process of recording cask locations and movements with these two modules. DRAMScan allows you to improve the accuracy of information and overall warehouse efficiency with a simple ‘point and click’ method for the recording of barrel movements. Sitting along side this, DRAMSPrint module provides accurate barcode label printing direct from the DRAMS database enforcing consistent label formats and eliminates the time-consuming admin tasks associated with rectifying duplicate label errors or illegible formats.
Dry & Cased Goods
Track the production process from beginning to end with DRAMS Dry and Cased Goods modules as you track all materials goods to create a finalised product and maintain control over all cased stock. DRAMS Dry Goods module caters for everything from the ordering of materials right through to the dispatching of materials into the production process and accounts for wastage. While DRAMS Cased Goods module keeps sight of all finalised product, even in multi-location, multi-warehouse environments where stocks may belong to the holding company or customers.
