The unit-of-measure on stock items of "Each" has been changed to "Unit"
Your Breww subscription can now be paid for by Direct Debit
In addition to continuing to accept credit/debit cards for paying for your Breww subscription, you can now switch to Bacs Direct Debit, if you'd like.
To swap from card to Direct Debit payments, please go to Settings > Billing, then from the bottom of the page, you should be able to add a new payment method. From here, you can enter your bank details and agree to the Direct Debit mandate. If you make sure this is then your "default" payment method, Breww will use this for all future payments.
Contacts can now be exported using Breww's Raw Data Explorer
This is ideal for then importing into MailChimp or another email service provider.
Added more control over when stock items are used when packaging or assembling products
When adding a component stock item to a packaged beer product, you can now specify whether it is used when the product is first created / packaged, whether it is used when assembled from existing stock, and also if it should be returned to stock when the product is disassembled.
For example, you can now specify that 24 x 330ml cans are used when "Pale Ale - 24 x 330ml Can" is initially created from a vessel, but that they aren't used when assembling "Pale Ale - 24 x 330ml Can" from existing "Pale Ale - 1 x 330ml Can" stock. However, a "24 x 330ml Box" should be used regardless of which process is being used to create the product. In this case, we would set it up like this:
Stock items added to the container type directly will only be used when the product is first created / packaged, and not when assembling existing stock. Adding a stock item to the container type directly has the same effect as only setting "Used when product is initially racked / packaged":
Breww has intelligently populated these settings initially based upon the name of the stock item, setting anything with "Can", "Bottle", "Lid", "Cap", "Label", "Crown", "Cork" "Ends" or "Wax" to only be used during the initial racking / packaging process and not when assembling existing packaged beer stock into another format. Stock items such as boxes or cases however, have been set to be used regardless of which process is used to create the product.
New flow for creating products
Breww has a new flow for creating products. Breww will now ask you first which type of product you are looking to create, before guiding you through a specific flow just for that type of product. This makes creating a product more intuitive, and removes questions not relevant to the type of product you are creating.
Beer stock availability forecasting
Breww has a brand-new beer stock availability forecasting tool!
The tool allows you to see how much stock you have now, what you expect to produce and forecasts when you'll run out... so you can make sure that never happens.
Importer for inventory suppliers added in data importers
You can now import inventory suppliers using the data import tools in settings.
Generate POs from a pre-brew stock check
You can now generate POs for the stock items on a pre-brew stock check with insufficient stock.
Simply click "Generate POs for missing stock" after running your pre-brew stock check.
Breww will then ask you to confirm a supplier for each stock item, and will pre-populate the required quantity. If a stock item has been associated to any suppliers, Breww will also round the quantity up to the nearest pack size, and ensure it is above the minimum order quantity for that supplier.
Breww will then generate your summary for you to confirm. Then just click "Create POs" and your draft POs will be automatically created!
