Hub client storage
Hub client storage is a client-facing web application that plugs into the Wine Hub, and provides a simple yet engaging view of customers’ stored wines.
Your clients can browse, search and filter, download as spreadsheets or as a beautifully formatted reserves/ stored wine report, request deliveries or collections, and review their delivery history.
Hub client storage is configurable in respect of En Primeur, and wines held on pending sales orders that have or have not been paid for. There’s no one standard approach to what should be included in a customer’s view so we’ve designed PCRM Lite to allow for those differences.
If you have a storage offering to your business, or are a small warehouse that doesn’t need full Warehouse Management, the Wine Hub is ideal for managing your customer stocks and facilitating brokerage of wines they choose to consign through you.
Market-based valuations can be set up to show Liv-ex prices, or Wine-Searcher derived low retail estimations based on a cluster of prices around the market low. Hub client storage can also be set up to display both options side by side.
Calculation of storage fees is one of the more complicated non-core tasks that wine businesses undertake, and it’s typically manual and time-consuming. The Wine Hub solves that problem by providing a billing calculation function that for storage services to be billed according to precise requirements – different charging periods, related fees and discount structures. Storage invoices are generated with full breakdowns of stored wines.
For substantial warehouses or wine businesses with large numbers of storage clients, we offer a comprehensive ‘white label’ collection management platform with additional information including reviews and scores, and the ability to manage home cellars. Self-directed brokerage is available as an add on that integrates the Wine Hub with the Hub Webshop.
