Independent wine and spirit merchant Nickolls & Perks has invested in new wine specific software as part of a strategy to double its online sales in the next two years.
WineSuite has made the final in the ‘Vertical Solution of the Year’ category of the European IT and Software Excellence Awards 2017. WineSuite is a state-of-the-art cloud-based solution for the wine industry built by FHL, powered by NetSuite.
The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner at the Royal Garden Hotel, London on 30 March 2017.
With specialist features including reserves and portfolio management, bonded warehouse management and en primeur sales, WineSuite has been developed to make operating within the wine trade as hassle-free as possible.
Andrew Peddie, Managing Director of FHL said “This award is testament to the first-class team we have at FHL. After seeing a gap in the market for a cloud-based solution specifically tailored for the wine industry, the team took time to fully understand merchants’ complex needs. WineSuite is now THE solution for the wine industry. No other provider can boast as comprehensive, user-friendly, scalable and as powerful a solution.”
Tom Mann, Sales Director from Appellations adds, “WineSuite is completely customisable, we can use it anywhere in the world and it’s perfectly tailored to our needs. It’s simply head and shoulders above every other solution on the market.”
London-based LHK Fine Wines has teamed up with FHL Cloud Solutions in an effort to streamline operations and drive sales.
The wine trader recruited UK-based FHL to help the brand switch from dysfunctional on-premise software and hardware to the one of the fastest growing cloud business management software suites; NetSuite. FHL Cloud Solutions, headquartered in Cheshire, is Europe’s number one NetSuite Solution provider – winning the prestigious NetSuite EMEA Solution Provider of the Year award for the last four consecutive years.
The Guardian recently ran an article on cloud computing that highlighted the considerations companies need to make when selecting cloud services. In the article, LHK Fine Wines, supplier of fine and rare wines, describes how it has replaced numerous back-office systems with a single software-as-a-service (SaaS) package from NetSuite to manage financial accounting, inventory and order management, as well as its ecommerce website to “punch way above their weight.”
