Niagara College Teaching Winery Chooses eWinery Solutions

Posted on August 20, 2013

eWinery Solutions announces that Niagara College Teaching Winery has chosen their platform to host a new eCommerce website, complete with wine club processing. The new site launched on June 13th.

"eWinery Solutions was the right solution for us," says Steve Gill, General Manager for Wine Operations at Niagara College Teaching Winery. "They offer an easy-to-use and easy-to-update eCommerce system, with impeccable references. In addition, they understand digital and social marketing and have great ideas for us for the future. We look forward to offering our customers better service, communicating with them more effectively, and providing them with wine at the click of a mouse."

eWinery Solutions eCommerce is a multi-platform solution that gives clients the opportunity to know the habits of their customers across many order channels: Desktop Site, Mobile Site, Allocation, Wine Club and more. Purchasing information and other data collected across all channels is consolidated on a single system and database. Tools for marketing, reporting and data management are all provided inside the eWinery Admin Panel. There also is a fully integrated Point of Sale(POS) solution, including mobile POS, that links all customer data with the ecommerce platform.

In addition to the eCommerce and wine club functions, eWinery Solutions is working with the college to build a ShipItHomeUSA portal. ShipItHomeUSA offers a logistics/software solution using the eWinery Solutions platform to enable sales to U.S. tourists. Canadian wineries have the same challenge in shipping to America as their European counterparts. But with ShipItHomeUSA, Niagara College will be able to sell and ship to a majority of US states and dramatically increase their tasting room sales.

"The solution that we've built for Niagara College Teaching Winery has vastly increased their customer service and reach," says Ron Scharman, President of eWinery Solutions. "They are now capable of selling wine to anyone in Ontario, and will shortly be able to do the same in the U.S.A. Not only that, but their new wine club gives them a consistent customer base to leverage and expand."

International wineries and importers interested in implementing a similar solution for their own sales may contact Ron Scharman at (707) 253-7457 or
