In order to help you transition from Ekos to Ollie Ops, we have put together the following guide.
As a part of getting started, we recommend:
- Going through each report exported and making sure that each line item is labeled the way you want it to look in Ollie. This is the perfect time to clean up any data so you can get a clean start in Ollie. For instance, if you want to change your naming convention on finished goods or any raw materials, now is the right time to do that before you import them.
Letting your current beer in tanks finish in Ekos and brew your new beers in Ollie once you've completed the setup. However, anything that can't be completed in Ekos can be imported into Ollie, especially things like Barrel-Aged Beers. Edit your CSV of the In-Progress Batch Report to reflect only the beers you want to import. If you don't need to import anything, then there is no need to pull this report.
- Going through Ekos and downloading batch histories and other necessary reports you will need in case of an audit.
Step 1: Watch the following video on how to pull the reports below from Ekos
Reports to download:
Export_Inventory - As Of Date - Grouped By Location
Inventory - Ingredients By Category
In-Progress Batch Details
Inventory - Finished Goods by Package Type
Step 2: Import data into Ollie Ops
Take the raw materials, packaging supplies, and the finished Goods reports from Ekos and transcribe that data into the corresponding importer sheets downloaded from the corresponding page within Ollie Ops. Once the info is in the template, you can import them directly into Ollie Ops on their respective pages.
Step 3: Import your recipes from BeerSmith or another recipe program via BeerXML format
Step 4: Take the In-Progess Batch Report from Ekos and transcribe that data onto the corresponding importer sheet downloaded from the batches page within Ollie Ops.
Once the info is on the template you can import them directly into Ollie Ops on their respective pages!
