SWIRL NEWSLETTER JULY 2016: QUINI SOMM™, THE GROWING ROLE OF THE SOMMELIER AND VAR NETWORK EXPANSION
We’ve always said that Quini was created to make wine tasting accessible to all. To replace intimidation with confidence. Now we advance this vision by bringing Quini to the world of fine dining. So both server and guest can engage in more informative, yet casual language about wine. Where the consumer is empowered, not intimidated, and servers, new or veterans, can be confident and able to enhance their guest dining experience even more.
Specifically, Quini moved into the restaurant space with a first of its kind enterprise software platform, to good market reception. We announced QUINI SOMM™ in early July and today are proud to name several high profile restaurant organizations amongst our clients. In Vancouver and in Seattle. This means food and wine lovers can begin to expect a better experience with wine, when dining at one of our customers’ restaurants. Drop us a note to find out who’s on board so far.
Also in July, we announced the expansion of our Value Added Reseller network with a partnership with hospitality and wine industry expert Philippe C. Grandbois. We’ve since signed other VARs, in Massachusetts and Maryland. This means the vision will be touching more markets, sooner. The sommelier of tomorrow is keen on technology to make their job more efficient and to add more value in their workplace. That’s where QUINI SOMM™, the platform our VARs will market, delivers in spades.
Lots more on the go at Quini, including major technology development projects and new enterprise client roll outs.
Until our next update, always enjoy your wine tastings with Quini. With proper tasting notes and on-going updates of your developing palate, the wheel of uncertainty, whenever you buy wine, or serve wine, turns into confidence and a better experience.
