eWinery Solutions Adds Vinx2 Winemaking Software to VinSuite Platform
May 9, 2013 (Napa, California) – eWinery Solutions, architect of VinSuite, the wine industry's first comprehensive and fully integrated cloud-based business solution, announced today that it has entered into an agreement to become the exclusive North American sales agent for VINx2 Winery Software, which provides a comprehensive software solution for managing the winemaking process from grape sampling through distribution.
“VINx2 is the best in the business,” says Richard Kline, founder and CEO of eWinery Solutions.
“They have done a great job of developing a cloud-based wine production software package that manages the day-to-day operations of wine production and takes the hassle out of the complicated record keeping of our industry. It not only provides seamless information management for complex wine production processes – it also provides all the information you need for compliance and generates a wealth of management reports, charts and trends analysis. We are really excited about what they bring to the wine business and believe that it’s a critical component of our VinSuite product line.”
“VINx2 will be fully integrated into VinSuite,” Kline continued. “The financial reporting functions will allow VinSuite clients to track costing, production and inventories from grape to bottle and provide end-to-end visibility of their product regardless of the inventory location or sales channel.”
VINx2 was built expressly for winemakers to reflect the way they work. It’s a visual system that allows the winery production team to see where they are at a glance, reduces double-entry and relieves them of some tedious duties, saving time and money, and giving the winemaker greater freedom to make wine. It’s the ideal choice for wineries producing their own wine or making wine under contract at a custom crush facility.
"VINx2 is a leading cloud-based wine production system, streamlining compliance, reporting and work order management,” says Jamie Gilchrist, co-owner of JX2, the developers of VINx2. "We're excited to be partnering with eWinery Solutions, taking our complementary products and working towards a best of breed solution for wineries in the form of VinSuite. We see this as a terrific opportunity to expand our growing presence in the North American market, while providing wineries what they really want – a grape-to-consumer platform from a single vendor."
VINx2 increases winery productivity by providing status reports on all elements of winery operations at a glance. The software traces the complete history of a wine product from grape to bottle and vice versa; provides timely feedback and reports to clients, staff and growers; ensures government compliance through simplified reporting; and removes the reliance on manual spreadsheets and log books. “In short,” says Gilchrist, “we help wineries make faster, more informed decisions based on easy-to-access information.”
