Best Beer Japan is a leading provider of beers and beverage products in Japan.The only IT company specializing in craft beerWe have supported its evolution as the first of its kind in the world." said Peter Rosenberg, Managing Director. Compared to last year, the number of breweries we do business with has doubled.
According to Rosenberg, the brewery's operations are paper- and Excel-intensive, and it can take as long as 14 minutes to process a single order. There are many tasks that are required by law, such as sanitation and liquor tax management, which puts a heavy burden on the back office. Not a single brewer has ever started a brewery because they wanted to do liquor tax," he said. Our mission is.Creating an environment where breweries can focus more on making beer."
