We've Acquired Elypsis

We at WineDirect are in the business of enabling wineries to sell more wine Direct-to-Consumer. We work tirelessly every day to help grow the DTC pipeline, because when that happens we all win. To support that important mission we've put together a full suite of services designed not only to help you grow revenue, but to streamline your operations. We feel strongly that the wine industry has long been in need of truly integrated direct sales and business management tools.  As a business owner or manager, you should be spending time doing what you love and what will help you move your business forward. You shouldn't have to worry about things like software integration or data management inefficiencies.

The digital world is moving forward at a rapid pace and successful businesses need to adapt and stay current. Our vision is to work in partnership with our winery customers to stay abreast of those changes and we're continually investing in the technology and services necessary to make that vision a reality.

With that in mind, I'm very pleased to announce that we've acquired Elypsis. Elypsis has been around since 1987, having introduced software solutions for wineries in 2000. This is a particularly exciting development for our WineDirect and Vin65 customers as they will now have access to a full suite of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Point-of-Sale (POS) solutions, both of which have been tailored specifically for the wine industry and built on the Microsoft Dynamics platform. 

I would also like to extend a warm “Welcome to the Family” to all of Elypsis' customers. If you don’t know us already, I think you’ll be pleased with our commitment to technology investment and driving innovation. You’ll also find we have a very strong service culture. In fact, we like to think that we're as passionate about customer service as you are about your wine.

Our team is excited about this new opportunity.  We view it as a tremendous way to continue to add value for wineries.

Looking forward to another exciting year in the wine industry!
