Imbibros is an independent wine merchant founded in 2004 by colleagues from one of London's most prominent wine merchants. With many years of experience between them, they share a wealth of knowledge - but in a world of conformity, they are not afraid to take a risk. They select wines that deliver quality and individuality, regardless of price and inclusive of great everyday wines, 'New World icons' and well-established classics.
Imbibros also offer advice on cellar planning, assisting you to sell your wine, as well as client tastings and catering for weddings. They also retail their products through an ecommerce store.


What They Wanted to Achieve

Imbibros were looking for a stock management system that could deal with wines and spirits whilst also having the capabilities of a retail EPOS system linked directly into the main stock control. They wanted accurate and timely management information along with full traceability of all stock.


Our Solution

Vision Commerce is an end-user stock management, sales order and purchase order management system. Originally designed for use within the wine and spirits industry, it is also suitable for anyone wishing to go beyond the boundaries of what you can buy off the shelf.


The Benefits of Vision Commerce

Vision Commerce comes with a fully integrated Sage accounts package. It also benefits from a full management reporting tool with in-depth product analysis and around 250 reporting templates. Commerce can work with Vision EPOS to allow full stock management, making it suitable for organisations that range from 3 to 300 employees. The software is versatile and offers very flexible pricing structures to suit individual companies.


The Results

Since using Vision Commerce as the company’s central system, the EDI link to Imbibros’ bonded warehousing company means that order processing is now simplified, quicker and more efficient. The reporting tool provides Imbibros with management information instantly, meaning that staff do not have to work out areas such as sales and margins manually. As Vision Commerce integrates with the epos system in the shop, this also helps to speed up the daily administration tasks and avoids having to input the same stock updates into various systems.
