Let Wine & Spirits Flow: Technology Enablement in Decision Making is Key to Making the Best Use of Limited Resources
The beauty in the craftsmanship, the homage to history, legacy and tradition: the Wine and Spirits industry brings together art and craftsmanship passed from generation to generation, continued innovation and an inspiring blend of artisan tools and cutting edge technology.
At every stage of planning and production, this industry is a study in prioritization and the maximization of limited resources, all bound by the complexity of safety, sustainability and regulatory compliance. It is always a conversation of not only what could be done but what should be done. Shifting consumer preferences and appetites, the love of mother nature and what she offers, labor constraints and the challenge of supply diversification to alleviate risks and bottlenecks are all at the fore of the folks who strive hard to keep the Wine and Spirits flowing.
Is it possible that SAP can really provide a conduit for the kind of process and data flow that support effective, action oriented decision-making. Can SAP truly act as one single source of truth for our folks to rally around?
Yes. The Wine and Spirits Industry may seem a bit niche in terms of requirements. The great news is that SAP offers both a robust and flexible toolkit to support the uniqueness of such a well-crafted business. We know transparency and visibility are essential to success, and by empowering our people with the smart use of technology, we reduce process disruptions, turn our strategy into realistic plans for execution, and bring folks along in harmony. As we think of our opportunity to scale, we must recognize the value of human capital and smart, data driven decisions.
Backed by best practices and a framework for scale and sustainable growth, SAP enables the Wine and Spirit supply chain to flow. Rather than acting as an after thought of Record and Report, SAP should be a vital enabler to make our strategies a reality.
