The Digital Dining Dashboard, powered by WhenToManage, helps facilitate operations and increase above-the-store collaboration through web technology.

Established in 1996, New Holland Brewing Company has grown from a scrappy two-man start-up to a thriving regional microbrewery. And for good reason, the company has been recognized for its creativity and artistry where all of the beer is brewed in Holland, Michigan at one of the two locations. In addition to a killer brewery operation, the pub is the place where brewmasters explore new ideas and meet with the folks that enjoy their fine craft all the while in a comfortable setting and community built to satisfy any hunger or thirst! And with such a complex and growing operation, Dave White, Partner and Director of Chaos, decided to enhance his operational toolbox with a solution designed for the busy general manager - the Digital Dining Dashboard - http://www.whentomanage.com/DD/dashboard.html.

“Based on our vision and the expansions we’ve already completed, we had to up our operational game and that meant using a web-based system to reorient our team and how we managed the business. Think about it this way, we went from a paper-based system hand-built to a repeatable web-based solution with connections to our Digital Dining POS system. It was like going from a ‘I think we’re making money on that’ to ‘hey, I just found out how to make 10% more on this’. We’ve become smarter operators, which means better costs for our customers and happier employees.” Said White.

New Holland Brewing Company will utilize the entire suite of Digital Dining Dashboard solutions in 2012. Ranging from inventory management to web-based operational reporting, White and team will access each department and revenue center through a centralized dashboard. In addition, the company will have access to the POS (point of sale) terminal via the polling application provided. “Initially, we started off with the business intelligence and labor apps and found that we could manage our people and operations easily. But, in a fast-paced brewery, cost controls on raw ingredients is key. Inventory is our big issue now, and we are all over it with the Digital Dining Dashboard.” Continued White.

“As a solutions-oriented company, with years of internal operations experience, we aim to provide technology that does three things: reduce complexity, decrease manager back-office time, and lower operating costs. But one key factor remains above all else, we maintain relationships with our users. Working with New Holland Brewing Company, we plan to provide as many features and options to help them catch the low performers or find opportunities to succeed in this improving economy.” said Walker Thompson, VP Sales and Marketing at WhenToManage.
