The Wine Society toasts £1 billion sales through Maginus multichannel solution

The Wine Society, a co-operative wine supplier, has celebrated transacting over £1 billion of sales through the Maginus multichannel solution.

The Maginus multi-channel solution allows The Wine Society to control the whole business including sales, purchasing, products, warehousing etc. from a single database. Sales are processed from across all the sales channels including web, catalogue, call centre, the store iPhone & Android Apps. This gives The Wine Society a single point of maintenance for all product, pricing and other business information, ensuring efficient processes and excellent customer service.

Since the implementation in 1998, the Maginus multichannel solution has supported The Wine Society’s extensive growth, with turnover doubling to just over £80m and it has now processed a total of over £1 billion in sales across the different channels.

David Marsh, Head of IS at The Wine Society, commented: “The Maginus technology has supported our sales of £1 billion by enabling us to manage new business initiatives such as new sales channels. This allows us to develop revenue opportunity and to improve customer service to help us to gain new customers and encourage repeat business. Maginus (the company) has an impressive commitment in ongoing product development which has meant that the Maginus multi-channel solution has always been able to handle our new business plans.”

Marsh continued: “The new suite of modern apps from Maginus, which are designed to make Maginus functionality available across devices, is an excellent development and absolutely essential in today’s market place. It will be possible for us to make all elements of the Maginus multi-channel solution available to our staff and customers across the web and on any device.The Maginus solutions are totally reliable and I see Maginus very much as a long term strategic partner. This means I don’t need to worry about our IT Infrastructure, instead I can concentrate on enabling the business to develop”.

Philip Stride, Sales Director at Maginus, commented: “We have worked with The Wine Society for many years and have built a strong working relationship with them. It’s important to us that our customers view us as a key long term partner, and that we can help them to manage the change as their business develops to meet the demands of the market place. We look forward to continuing to work with The Wine Society in the future.”
