New Belgium Brewing Company (NBB) of Fort Collins, Colorado has recently launched their new full-service Point of Sales (POS) e-Business site using the Keyora platform. NBB teamed up with Keyora Inc. to build out a solution in which their internal and external customers are able to view, purchase, and track all of the promotional materials that are essential to making their brands successful in the market.
Due to rapid growth in the beverage industry, NBB had outgrown their online solutions for both customers and rangers. Tara Parker, Fulfillment Manager of NBB stated,“Our existing site was not user friendly or intuitive, it lacked integrated functionality. The Keyora team listened to the challenges we had faced, consulted our end users, researched our processes, and made sure they fully understood our expectations before they began development of the new site.”
Susan Griffiths, the CEO of Keyora reported,“Keyora has made a significant investment in building out cutting-edge solutions for distribution in the beverage industry. It is an industry in which we have depth of knowledge and the expertise to advise on the right solutions to complicated problems that are beverage-specific.”
Joanne DeGrace, Account Manager at Keyora Inc. added,“Our agile project management style added to the success of the implementation.”
“Focused releases of each stage of the project were periodically presented to NBB by the Keyora team. The NBB team was then able to test the most recent version of the system as the Keyora team concurrently worked on trouble shooting and development of subsequent versions. “This staggered release process made each piece of the overall project easy to learn, follow, and test against original functionality requests. It also made the final cutover to our new site a much smoother process than we had even anticipated,” added Parker of NBB.
