Brew Tea Co have the kind of motto that works not just for a hot beverage, but for their business as well: ‘Keep it simple, but do it properly.’
Beginning in 2012 as a wholesale-only business in Liverpool, England, Brew Tea took tea seriously when not many were. Focusing on just eight blends of high quality tea, they create a superior product in both loose leaf and tea bags.
“Once a month we do a stock count and that’s so much easier because of the system, because I can monitor it every day instead of looking once a month,” says Deidre McNally, Warehouse Leader at Brew Tea Co.
McNally uses Unleashed every day, for purchasing and contacting her suppliers, to the beverage manufacturing process that creates their products. It also allows her to create products on the fly, and that flexibility is important to her.
Brew Tea Co also use Unleashed for their sales and to monitor all their manufacturing and and inventory levels. As a rapidly expanding business, accuracy is important to that growth, and the reporting provides the visibility they need.
“The business has grown roughly 100% since we implemented Unleashed, roughly double the size that we were at the time,” says Phil Kirby, co-founder of Brew Tea Co. “I would definitely recommend Unleashed. It allows us access to our information from everywhere.”
With Unleashed smoothly handling their purchasing, stock visibility, beverage manufacturing processes and sales, Brew Tea Co can continue to scale their business for the future, and can be sure they always have the inventory to meet customer demand.
