Liberty Wines has contracted Microsoft Gold partner TVision Technology to implement The Wine System, TVision’s enhanced version of Dynamics NAV that provides an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution specifically designed for the wine distribution industry.
The Wine System will address the operational and financial needs of Liberty Wines and offer the scope and scalability that Liberty Wines is looking for to meet their plans for future growth. It will replace two current packages with one fully integrated system.
TVision developed The Wine System to meet the specific issues faced by wine distributors and in particular the need for a software solution that could cope with customers and suppliers ranging from single individuals to multinationals. It has been in use with industry leaders for over a decade.
“Microsoft Dynamics NAV impressed us as the best mid-market solution available,” Gary Wyatt, Chief Operating Officer, Liberty Wines. “We believe a sustainable wine business is founded on delivering excellent service to our customers and part of that is having a first class back office system that allows us to support the needs of the market. Selecting TVision means we have a solution that fits, based on the product we want to use and with a partner who has proven experience in our industry.”
Aiming for go-live early in 2014, the new system is another step forward in the progression of Liberty Wines following its move to purpose built office, warehouse and tasting facilities earlier this year.
Liberty Wines was founded in 1997 by David Gleave MW with a team of four; today the company employs over 90 staff and distributes premium wines to the UK and Ireland from 16 countries around the world. The investment in Microsoft Dynamics NAV will provide the foundation to fulfil the strategic aims of the next phase of Liberty Wines’ growth. Gary Wyatt; “The technology of Microsoft Dynamics means we can easily extend the solution to reach our customers, suppliers and employees in the way that best suits them. It also means we will have management information that will help us guide the future of the business as well as meeting the day-to-day process needs.”
TVision Technology is fast becoming established as the Microsoft partner for the wine industry. “We are very pleased to welcome Liberty Wines as a valued client,” Richard Thompson, MD, TVision Technology. “Our reputation for delivering great systems for wine merchants is something we are very proud of and we work hard to ensure it is maintained and deserving.”
