Orion Helps Wineries Grow with New POS Features


Date: 08/22/13

SANTA ROSA – California - August 22, 2013 – Orion Wine Software, a leader in winery management solutions, announces an update to its Integrated Point-of-Sale (POS) system, which includes the new Gratuity feature that allows wineries to offer table service and accept gratuities.

As one of the first winery-specific point-of-sales software companies, Orion’s approach over the years to improving its capabilities has been based directly on feedback and suggestions from its customers. By hearing and understanding the needs of winery clients, Orion has been able to grow with these businesses and offer tailor-made solutions that help wineries enhance productivity and increase profitability.

Orion’s one-of-a-kind POS system captures all winery sales across multiple channels: wholesale, direct to retail, and consumer sales via clubs, e-commerce and POS. The suite provides a single inventory and financial control system designed for tasting rooms and wine bars. Integrated Point-of-Sale is comprehensive, location independent, and it delivers highly flexible fulfillment.

With this current update, which includes the new Gratuity feature for expanded table service, the Integrated Point-of-Sale system still provides a complete customer view, but also presents an improved workflow and a more simplified, contemporary design aesthetic.

“Our system remains extremely easy to use but is now even more powerful,” says Jay Hall, Orion’s general manager. “Our goal with WiMS’s POS has been to reflect the needs of our users. By adding our new table service feature, we offer a fresh avenue for wineries to connect with customers.”

David Oliveto, owner of Stevenot Winery, a long time WiMS user, said: “We are very happy with WiMS; the whole program is working very well for us. The new Gratuity feature in the POS is fantastic. It has increased our employee’s hourly pay and because of that incentive we feel they are becoming more conscientious, which is helping our club sign ups. I’d recommend it to anyone who has a tasting room!”
