Napa, CA (PRWEB) January 7, 2010
VinoVisit, a winery search engine, has partnered with Vin65, provider of website design, ecommerce, content management, and CRM solutions to market an integrated visitor reservation system for wineries. Wine country visitors will be able to make reservations online at Vin65 powered websites and wineries will be able to capture and manage valuable customer data and insights.
This integration creates a seamless experience from a visitor’s online search to the cellar door and beyond. Online reservation tools also enable wineries to better manage staffing and scheduling while capturing “lost” reservations from phone and email tag.
“We have built the first winery search engine with real-time reservations dedicated to making planning and booking visits to wineries fun and easy for wine country visitors,” says Dan Lintz CEO of VinoVisit.com.
“Robust winery profiles including thousands of exclusive photographs, visitor reviews, and our proprietary multi-day itinerary-building with matching turn-by-turn directions have simplified planning visits to wine country. Tasting room traffic is extremely valuable to wineries, and VinoVisit will drive new visits and capture contact information for post-visit marketing and sales.”
Lintz adds, “We are very excited to launch an integrated solution with Vin65 that will provide new opportunities to build visitor relationships and support post-visit consumer direct sales for wineries. Customer records in Vin65 will be automatically updated with reservation histories, to give wineries a comprehensive picture of their marketplace.”
“Many of our clients have asked about online reservation tools, so we were pleased to select VinoVisit as our partner in this endeavor” says Vin65 owner, Andrew Kamphus.
“We considered building our own, but VinoVisit is a robust stand-alone product that can be integrated with any ecommerce solution, including Vin65’s. We vetted it carefully before agreeing to provide it to our client wineries and have been impressed with VinoVisit’s functionality and toolsets. The only other choice out there was merely an add-on component to a competitor’s ecommerce solution.”
Vin65 clients will be offered special promotional pricing for using the new integrated solution.
VinoVisit, the first reservation system developed specifically for wineries, provides a Visitor Relationship Management system that captures valuable visitor contact information, collects marketing and sales data, offers CRM tools and automates and simplifies the reservation process. VinoVisit.com, a winery search engine that drives visitor traffic to tasting rooms, provides an easy way search, then select and book tours and tasting events by location, varietal, and dozens of other attributes. Winery profiles include robust descriptions, photos, maps, visitor reviews, and video. Real-time reservation bookings, multi-day itinerary-building tools, turn-by-turn directions and closed-loop visitor reviews round out the consumer offering.
