Integrated Wine Solution.

Guided by our extensive experience in the Wine industry, we have developed a tailored solution for businesses, large and small.

Our integrated , cloud-based Wine solution can save you time, give you a better understanding of your numbers and maximise your WET rebate.

Our tailored, application stack for Wine businesses can help growers track spray diaries, yields and vineyard costs. It also helps wine makers stay on top of blend tracking, cost of production and Label Integrity Program compliance, all whilst keeping track of sales and inventory across any location.

Why Go Cloud.

Look to cloud-based solutions for your wine business to free up time spent on administrative tasks and clear the desks of piles of paper. Cloud solutions can offer:

  • Integrated business systems that minimise data entry, eliminate manual handling errors and maximise data flow 
  • Structured reporting frameworks that provide real time information on inventory costs that incorporate overheads and labour
  • Inventory tracking accurately based on real time financial information, which can be used to make more effective sales driven decisions
  • Regular data integrity checking and Business Activity Statement reviewing to ensure GST & WET are being paid accurately
  • A sales tool which enables all sales people both internal and external to generate their own invoices and orders efficiently and accurately within their allowed pricing
  • Easy to use, efficient, point of sale offering that can be used in different locations
  • A debtor management system that automatically emails invoices, reminders and statements, and enables online payments.

Our integrated Wine Solution can save time and ensure businesses are on the right track.

Heads Up.

Collaborate in the cloud.

Bringing more heads to your books is easy with Xero. Give us access and we can log in, look at your numbers and provide advice. It’s perfect for spotting opportunities and nipping problems in the bud, swiftly and easily.

Mobile access.

Access your accounts, check your balances, upload receipts and invoice customers from your smartphone or tablet app, while you are on the road or having a quiet coffee.

Reconcile from anywhere.

Xero receives your bank statements automatically via a secure connection, making it easy to reconcile and gain a complete and up-to-date snapshot of your business before you’ve left the house. And if something doesn’t look right, you can leave a comment so we can log in and give you a quick health check.

Painless payroll.

Xero includes an integrated accounting and payroll solution, making manual entry a thing of the past. Superannuation payments and tax updates are automatic, plus a special portal gives you a complete snapshot of your payroll and leave.

Point of Sale software.

A cloud-based point of sale system that is easy to use, yet powerful enough to run any Cellar Door or Restaurant. The team will set up an integrated POS system that provides you with advanced technology to make running your business easier and give you real-time data to make better decisions.

Our Point of Sale software can be used securely in both online and offline modes on smartphones, tablets, laptops and even some traditional POS equipment already available.

eCommerce software.

A tailored eCommerce solution will give you a platform for online sales that is tightly integrated with your accounting software, which means you get all the benefits of being online, without the headaches of re-entering data between systems. Whether you sell online, on social media, in store or on the road, we have you covered.
