Partnership creates a “Vine to Consumer” solution for the wine industry
San Rafael, Calif. – Wine Management Systems (WMS), announced today that is has created a partnership with simplyCMS, a cloud-based website, ecommerce and POS platform for wineries, creating an affordable solution for winemakers and wineries to use one solution from the field to distribution to DTC.
WMS is the leading provider of end-to-end “Software as a Service” (SaaS) solutions that track all winery activities from vineyard operations through production and bottling, Inventory management and TTB and FDA compliance for wineries and custom crush facilities. simplyCMS is a provider of “Cloud-Based” E commerce, wine club, and POS. simplyCMS’s deep domain and industry expertise enable wineries to improve profitability and enhance customer service in a compliant manner.
By partnering with simplyCMS through a monthly subscription model, WMS is making it possible for small to mid-sized wineries and custom crush facilities to afford and leverage the same robust best in class E commerce, wine club and iPad POS capabilities that have long been in use by larger wineries, in addition to WMS cloud-based production management software.
“This partnership with simplyCMS is leveling the playing field for the small to mid-sized winery” said WMS CEO Patrick Oates. “These wineries can now manage their DTC processes with simplyCMS and they can also afford and access the best-in-class, web-based capabilities offered through cloud-based technology for improved, end-to-end business management. Historically, these types of DTC and management tools have been out of reach from a pricing perspective for the small to mid-sized winery. This partnership changes that.”
