Wine.com Launches New Division in Record Time with NetSuite
San Francisco, CA
“The NetSuite system was up and running for our new logistics
division within an incredibly short amount of time, and it helped us close a significant amount
of business when we needed it most—in December, our busiest month of the year.”
Wine.com Logistics was able to save substantial costs and labor that would have been
required with the open source or industry-specific package.
Avoided hiring any permanent IT staff.
Got the Web Services piece working well, which was very important for development and
Able to get it done in the condensed timeframe, which was equally important.
Wine.com prepared to launch a new division, Wine.com Logistics, at the end of 2009 with
extremely limited timeframe.
Urgently needed an IT platform that could be up and running fast enough to capture sales for
the 2009 holiday season.
Wine.com chose NetSuite over an open source and wine industry-specific package alternatives.
Was able to accommodate Wine.com's stringent time requirements as well as the required
integration with its parent system of record.
NetSuite accomplished the feat via its SuiteCloud Connect integration platform.
SuiteCloud Connect tied the new Logistics division into Wine.com's system of record via Web
Services, allowing a direct flow of data between Wine.com Logistics customers and Wine.com.
