Tres Hermanos LLC, a craft beer manufacturer and distributor located in Anaheim California is sinking the competition in more ways than one. The company has deployed GoCanvas Mobile Apps on iPhones to its field sales force giving it the appearance and advantage of big beer players without the big solution price tag.
Additionally, the company’s premier craft brew “Evan’s Original” of the Evans Premium Lager line won a silver award at the 2012 World Beer Cup in San Diego this past May, proving that innovation thrives in all aspects of this company’s business.
The distributor developed three mobile apps with GoCanvas beginning with a standard Sales Invoice. This app captures all the essentials: customer name and address information, payment terms, order and due date, as well as the item numbers, quantities, product name and price of the beverages. GoCanvas calculates the net amount and even allows the sales rep to enter a discount on the total. The rep then captures the GPS location and signature of the customer on his iPhone to confirm the sale. Once the invoice was ready, Tres Hermanos created an app that collects information on orders for delivery and another for keeping track of warehouse items.
Tres Hermanos didn’t just stop with the standard GoCanvas service but instead opted to have custom PDF’s designed for each of its applications. With this service, they were able to retain their original form layout and keep the focus on promoting the Tres Hermanos brand with PDFs they email their customers through GoCanvas.
Taking innovation one step further, Tres Hermanos is working with one of Canvas’s partners, Data Collaborative, to integrate its GoCanvas apps with Quickbooks. Once complete, the data that they collect with GoCanvas will flow directly into its accounting software, completely eliminating redundant data entry. That way the Tres Hermanos crew can sit back, relax and crack open a refreshing Evans Lager without thinking twice about paperwork.
