Conclusion

The systems have been widely used by big cider and winery companies who are happy with the software. Users suggest that they are able to easily manage inventory and WET from small to bulk productions. Because the add-on is a web-based winery and accounting software it is truly a helpful integrated system. The fact that the software is cloud-based means that it is accessible whether in the winery or office. Although the system is very reliable for some winery companies, it offers very limited integration which is its major downfall for its competitors because many users are looking forward to products they can use for multiple operations they are familiar with.
