Allows wineries to arm their tasting room staff with a POS that can be carried in their pockets.
July 23, 2013 – Vin65, the leading provider of wine commerce software, announces the launch of their iPhone Point of Sale system (POS). The iPhone version of Vin65’s POS is the next step toward helping winery employees get out from behind the tasting room bar and closer to their customers. The Vin65 POS was originally designed for the iPad to help wineries be mobile and sell their wine anywhere; at a pouring, concert, farmer’s market or around the property. The addition of the iPhone version makes carrying the POS easier and less cumbersome.
Like the iPad POS, the iPhone POS is fully integrated with Vin65’s core CRM, Club, ecommerce, and reporting tools. Winery staff are able to process transactions, sign up club members and provide a seamless customer experience in the tasting room and online.
The iPhone POS makes purchasing a breeze by allowing staff to meet customers where they are and reduce time spent waiting. This means the winery can focus on cultivating relationships; getting to know their customers through one-on-one experiences and leaving a lasting impression.
Features & Benefits:
- Increased Mobility.Staff can keep a POS system handy in their pockets so they will always be ready for a sale (no need to carry an iPad around with them).
- No Waiting Lines.Customers don’t have to wait in line at a register, the sale can happen where they are, when they want.
- Focus On Building Relationships. The customer is the central focus – not the cash register.
- Manage Everything In One Place. One system for products, orders, customers, clubs, and reports.
Brent Johnson, general manager of Vin65, had this to say: “Moving from the iPad to the iPhone is a natural step in helping wineries be mobile. We wanted to challenge how wineries sell in their tasting room. By giving wineries a powerful tool that is simple to use and fits in their pocket we are trying to remove the focus during a transaction from line-ups and cash registers to fostering relationships with visitors.”
The iPhone POS is immediately available for all Vin65. For existing Vin65 POS customers it is provided at no additional costs.
