What would Wineries need in a Point of Sale?

Running a winery, no matter the size, often involves so much more than just the varietals. Those who choose to run and manage a winery often have a lot of passion and drive for providing not only excellent wine, but also a luxurious guest experience. Whether dining in or buying wine by the case, providing your customers a five star experience is possible with seamless checkouts. Streamline your winery operations by ensuring that you make use of quality business tools, such as an efficient and expansive Point of Sale.

If you are considering inserting a POS solution into your existing winery operations, you have to ensure that that POS has the following features:

A Cloud-based Solution

Not only is a Cloud-based point of sale more secure, making use of it is overall more affordable. Instead of having to waste money and resources on using a traditional server to maintain your POS, a Cloud-based POS can store and protect your data via the Internet. Cloud computing is affordable, flexible, remote controlled, secure and collaborative. It also takes care of security back-ups, software updates and integrations. Rather than having to buy numerous and often expensive hardware, you can reduce your costs by using the resources of your Cloud computing service provider.

Reporting and Capturing Data Capabilities

It is very important that your winery’s point of sale system to be able to accurate track and show you your sales data. Your point of sale software should help track down and identify possible deals, based on current pricing, as well as monitor and display your current sales data. Once you get this kind of information you can identify targeted sales opportunities for your customers. For example, if you can see that you are selling more Merlot than Pinot depending on the season, then you can stock more Merlot or adjust the prices accordingly. You need a secure Cloud-based data warehouse that enables flexible, fast and accurate reporting.

Location Management

One of the biggest challenges for wineries when looking for POS software is the fact that a winery often has multiple locations, each with their own set of needs. For example, you might have a tasting room, a gift shop, restaurant and guest house all on one property. You need POS software that can accommodate all of these locations, as well as ensuring that each location’s needs are met.
