Like many businesses, Hudson Valley Brewery needed to find an immediate solution to scale their online operations as the pandemic began limiting their ability to sell in stores. Marisa shared, ”The pandemic made it so that we had to close our retail and taproom space to the public.
That was the major change that forced us to switch to online ordering and pre-ordering, rather than buying in person.” Utilizing both Square for their physical sales and Squarespace to manage their online storefront, the team at Hudson Valley Brewery wanted to find a solution that would allow them to help them get sales data in a single standard format.
As they vetted more software, the Hudson Valley Brewery team discovered Dext Commerce and to see if it met their needs decided to test it out. After a short discovery period, the team found that Dext Commerce would allow them to combine their two sales channels seamlessly. With Dext Commerce, they could radically simplify and enhance their reporting capabilities and create a directly integrated channel to push data directly to Quickbooks.
The inclusion of Dext Commerce in their tech stack allowed them to continue to scale operations and gain more significant insights into their financials like never before. Marisa shared that Dext Commerce allowed the team to understand the company’s sales performance better as it pertains to the various components of their business expenses.
Dext Commerce allows them to get a more granular view of their P&L, which is essential to helping them decide how they will invest in their business. When implementing Dext Commerce, Marisa shared that it was an in-depth but seamless process. They were able to customize all of the various inputs in the system so that everything was in the right place and format when it synced to Quickbooks.
