Our research shows wine club members prefer to shop online and will purchase 2-3 times more if they can visit a secure online store and automatically receive their wine club benefits. The VinNOW/SecureWineShop integration can make this happen.
Windsor, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
Winery software developer VinterActive LLC today announced its flagship SecureWineShop™ winery ecommerce system is now available as a completely integrated extension for the popular VinNOW® wine club & winery POS software produced by Update Software USA.
This solution is one of the first ever to bridge the gap between tasting room operations, wine club, secure ecommerce and website management. With over 150 combined winery clients, this collaboration between leading software developers is poised to make an immediate impact in a rapidly evolving wine industry.
"With internet orders increasing and wine club members demanding online access to their accounts, our winery customers were asking for an integrated solution," according to Ted Starr, Founder & CEO of Update Software. "VinNOW works with SecureWineShop by automatically synchronizing customer, product and order data between the two systems. The online store is controlled from VinNOW with simple drop-down menus. This solution makes it easier than ever for wineries to grow their online sales and for customers to interact with wineries."
"Integrating with VinNOW gives our winery clients a powerful competitive advantage," according to Bryan St. Amant, Founder & CEO of VinterActive. "Our research shows wine club members prefer to shop online and will purchase 2-3 times more if they can visit a secure online store and automatically receive their wine club benefits. The VinNOW/SecureWineShop integration can make this happen."
