Combining the NCR EasyPoint™ kiosk with WinesandRecipes.com’s customized software creates a merchandising tool designed to cross-sell wines, cheeses and other assorted food items. The kiosk also provides targeted promotional opportunities to retailers, distributors and wineries for the customer at the point of decision.
“Consumer acceptance of self-service technology in the wine and food industry is reaching new heights. By aligning our product suite with NCR, the global leader in kiosk placements and technology, we are reaching our goal to expand our leadership in the wine kiosk market,” said Jon Holland, president, WineMiner LLC. “This hardware strategy will enable our future growth in the United States, as well as our ability to provide services elsewhere around the world.”
While the online version of WinesandRecipes.com contains information and ratings on over 30,000 wines and hundreds of cheeses, the kiosk solution contains information customized to each retailer’s wine and cheese inventory. This feature targets retailers with a keen interest in tailored customer service.
