1. The Business
Laithwaite’s serve over 48,000 customers around Australia, providing a direct cellar to door experience for enthusiasts to discover and enjoy a selection of handcrafted wines.
In 2006, as part of the global Laithwaite’s Wine Group, they were looking for a technology provider to help launch in Australia and New Zealand and needed a scalable, easy to use solution that removed reliance on IT support.
They needed a multichannel solution that would enable customer support and sales through phone, web chat and email.
The technology solution also needed to service multiple brands including:
- Laithwaite’s Wine
- Virgin Wines
- Velocity Wine Store
- The Australian Wine
