Let’s Talk Wine Industry Technology! Listen to Our New Podcast

September 21, 2023 Tony Castellano

More than 30 years ago, Western Computer was founded with a mission to educate, empower, and inspire our customers. I’m excited to share that passion in our new podcast, 365WineTrade Technology Talks, a new take on the business trends and technology driving the wine and spirits industry. Our industry leading panelist will share real-world examples of technology that is changing the landscape of the wine and spirits industry and how it is affecting companies from producers, to wholesale/importers, down to distributors and retailers.

I’ve always had a love of technology and data so when I started working with wine and spirits distributors for our 365WineTrade solution, it was clear that the industry was technology challenged with disparate legacy business applications and heavy dose of Excel spreadsheets. It’s fascinating to hear the struggles and successes of these organizations from small startups to larger distributors and producers. Let’s face it, it’s hard to get excited about software, but when you can save someone 4-6 hours a week of stitching data together for monthly reports, most people will toast to that!

Many that I talk to in the industry have a lot of insightful questions and some valid concerns about their technology challenges. How can it help us be more profitable? What should we be investing in? Why is it so complicated when all we want is to make things simpler for our employees, suppliers, and customers? That’s when I had the idea to create a focused podcast to answer questions we hear about wine and spirits technology every day.

Taking the Mystery Out of Wine Industry Technology

365WineTrade Technology Talks is a place where wine and spirits wholesale importers, distributors, and producers can listen to candid discussions with technology experts on the solutions, trends, tips, and topics impacting the industry.

Our goal with the podcast is to help you learn how technology can help you overcome today’s challenges and build a sustainable foundation for growth. We’ll talk about everything from software to sales performance, omnichannel commerce to compliance, analytics to allocations—and a whole lot more!
