Western Computer developed 365WineTrade to meet the unique business processing requirements for customers in the wine and spirits distribution business. Integrating 365WineTrade with Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP provides customers with a state-of-the-art ERP solution that fits their unique business needs. Much like the fine wine you sell, perfecting the functionality of 365WineTrade has taken time. And it’s one of the many reasons wine and spirits distributors trust us. We’ve already spent a long time immersing ourselves in your industry so from day one, we speak your language and understand the many challenges of this highly complex and regulated business.

What can you do with Western Computer’s seamlessly integrated ERP for wine distributors?

From complicated tax calculations and pricing to multi-state compliance and reporting, we’ve built in the logic, automations and functionality you need. And because 365WineTrade by Western Computer is powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365, you get unmatched integration, enterprise-level ERP capabilities, and an unrivaled 99.9% uptime in Microsoft’s Cloud.

We are committed to help wine distributors compete at a higher level by developing innovative solutions backed by our expansive team of industry experts.


Accurate Regulatory Compliance and Reporting

Perhaps the biggest challenge for wine and spirits distribution, and one of the most valuable benefits of our wine distribution ERP, is regulatory compliance and reporting across multiple states. Whether you operate in, or have clients in, one state or all 50—you can manage it all in one system, automatically and accurately. Keep your state liquor licenses always up to date, easily adapt to changing requirements, comply with COLA labeling requirements and simplify VIP reporting.

Automated Tax Calculations

For wine distributors, there is nothing more unique, time consuming and chaotic than calculating taxes and pricing. Federal, state and local taxes, beverage taxes, import taxes and more are all automated for you so pricing is always accurate and compliance is assured.

Flexible Customer Pricing and Discounts

Pricing and discounts are totally simplified with our wine distribution ERP. You can establish price groups by producer, category and/or customer and apply discounts on the fly. Easily track all additional fees such as split cases and delivery.

  • Single Item Pricing
  • Volume Pricing
  • Mix and Match Pricing
  • Multi-size Pricing
  • Discounts by Volume, Free Goods, etc.
  • Bill and Hold
  • Family Plans and Customer Co-Ops

End-to-End Sales Order Management and Traceability

We’ve automated the ability to apply chargebacks and billbacks to the original order, customer and supplier. Our mobile apps for sales reps and delivery drivers enable them to quickly apply discounts, track return reasons, ensure availability and that every item was accurately ordered and delivered. And customers receive consolidated and clean invoices instantly.

Advanced Inventory Management Across Multiple Warehouses

Manage and track inventory across multiple warehouses (company owned or 3PL) and view inventory and lead times in real time.  Our exclusive 365ContainerImport solution is included to simplify global shipment tracking and you can even reserve inventory while in route.
