Vines OS Wine Club and E-Commerce Platform Partners with Industry Leading Revel Systems iPad POS

Posted on August 17, 2018

San Jose, CA, August 17, 2018 — Vines OS (www.vinesos.com), a comprehensive wine club and ecommerce platform, has partnered with Revel Systems (www.revelsystems.com), a feature-rich Point of Sale and complete business management platform, to offer a fully-integrated direct-to-consumer solution for wineries, restaurants, breweries and distilleries.

Businesses that connect Vines OS to Revel will benefit from the full suite of club and ecommerce tools, including club batch processing, ecommerce, credit card decline minimizer, gift clubs, customer-choice clubs, and event ticketing or tasting reservations.

“Vines OS provides seamless integration between club, ecommerce, event ticketing and Revel Systems POS, including a two-way data sync,” says Vines OS President, Jules Robbins. “We realized it’s critical for our clients to have a 360° view of their customers purchasing behavior across all channels. We are pleased to bring this to market with the industry leader in POS, Revel Systems.”

Club orders can be batch processed on Vines OS and are immediately synchronized over to the Revel iPad. When members come in to pick up their shipments, the order shows under the member profile, indicating it is ready for pickup. After it has been received by the customer, the order status is updated back to Vines OS. Members are automatically recognized when making tasting room purchases and their discounts instantly applied. Important member profile details display in real time, such as when they last visited, what they purchased most, and the customer lifetime value. With the loyalty program, members can earn and redeem rewards with each club release.

Inventory is centrally depleted regardless of where the orders originate. There is full integration with QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop, and once the connection is made, Revel makes all of the needed entries to account for sales, COGS and inventory, eliminating the time-intensive work of manually reconciling the books.

"We chose to partner with Revel Systems because it is best-in-class for POS. Features such as the ‘Always-on’ mode, mobile order takers, employee management, real-time inventory tracking and loyalty programs made it a clear winner,” said Robbins.

Revel offers advanced POS features including real time exact inventory tracking right down to the pour, easy split bills and preauthorized bar tabs, and the ability to use both dining and retail functionalities in one backend.

At Van Till Family Farm Winery, based in Missouri, Director of Operations, Jason Van Till commented, “The Vines OS team is prompt and professional, and we are very happy to work with them. Their integration with Revel Point of Sale is excellent, and has helped us manage and grow our direct-to-consumer sales.”
