Melbourne software company, JX2 Technology, has announced the installation of its modern winery software system, VINx2, into three leading Californian wineries: Jada Vineyard and Winery, Niner Wine Estates and Rack and Riddle Custom Wine Services.
Marking a sales push into the larger North American market, VINx2 was installed at all facilities for the 2009 harvest.
According to JX2, all three wineries chose VINx2 over US-based offerings for the modern and easy to use nature of the program and JX2’s customer service focus.
JX2 co-owner Jamie Gilchrist says the feedback from their American clients has been very positive.
“We’ve had to engineer the software to deal with Imperial measurements and the strict US government reporting requirements,” he said.
“But it’s been the system’s highly visual and easy to use nature that has won over the Californian winemakers.”
With plans to establish a permanent presence in California, JX2 has been servicing their North America customers (including several wineries in Canada) from Melbourne.
A toll free North American phone number connects users directly to a 24-hour help desk while a support representative is available at-call on the ground in California.
With the assistance of export grants from the Victorian State Government, JX2 will be visiting the largest wine industry trade show held in the US – the Unified Grape and Wine Symposium in Sacramento during January.
VINx2 will also be on show on the east coast of the US in March, at the Wineries Unlimited trade show held in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
According to JX2, VINx2 is a highly visual web-based tool for managing the day-to-day operations of a wine business.
It fulfils statutory compliance for wine traceability, tracks inventory and warehousing and provides barrel management using wireless barcode technology.
VINx2 is installed at wineries throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada and now the United States.
