Technology & Wine: A Perfect Pair

In these technological times, all wineries need digital transformation. Most technical upgrades are not optional if the business is to remain competitive. Stay relevant and thrive by choosing the right technology and getting it up and running fast for maximum ROI. 

Depending on your location, you’ve likely already seen your competitors implement technology to better manage and evaluate crops using drones or other IoT devices. Flying a drone over your crops won’t give you anything but an aerial view unless you take advantage of powerful data paired with the technology to collect, store, and analyze it.

Data always requires strong cybersecurity strategies. Digital technology in the cloud can help you manage crops and analyze data you can use to grow your crops and your business while keeping your system, business, and data secure. 

This guide describes the technology wineries need to remain competitive, grow efficiently, and leverage data to make the business and the wine thrive. 

Do you understand the full potential of cloud computing?

Are you currently operating in the cloud? If not, you need to move up to the cloud to take advantage of managed services, built-in security, data storage, and analytics. If you’re already in the cloud, are you taking advantage of all it offers? The cloud continuously updates and changes. For maximum efficiency, businesses must keep up with security and the different tools that can help manage crops.

Cloud computing is necessary because it’s easy to access over the internet. With the cloud, servers and hardware are owned and managed by a provider. If you select a partner like Endsight who is focused on making your business succeed, then you know you’ll be able to quickly utilize any new technology that improves business results.Benefits of using a cloud system:

  • No need to focus on hardware; that’s covered. 
  • Focus on learning how to leverage new technology for crop management.
  • Learn and use AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) to analyze data.
  • Leverage the analytics to improve crop management, wine processing, and distribution.
  • Build your business using your data to serve more customers, regardless of location. 
  • Know your data is fully secured by a trusted cloud provider. 
  • Scale your technology as needed to match business needs, reduce costs, and increase efficiency

Using the cloud also frees up resources to work from anywhere with internet access. Employees can be effective from the field, at home (while enjoying some wine), at the farmer’s market, or on the go. Your winemaking operations become more efficient when using a wine data-management system that is both secure and flexible.

How can wineries leverage tech effectively?

Without being an expert, you can use a cloud system that provides various options for leveraging technology to build your business. Wineries can get started by sending out drones to gather crop data, including vine health and the impacts of recent weather. You can use wireless soil sensors to more efficiently manage water use and irrigation practices. Precise and sustainable farming is possible with technology. 

Wineries can also attract and serve customers through self-service portals. Portals provide outlets for sales and enable customers to connect with the business for support and additional sales opportunities. Learn what customers want, who your ideal customer is, and how to serve them effectively. 

Digital collaboration is possible with cloud systems. Many modern platforms provide customer data management tools to assist with pricing, promotions, and inventory management. 

It might sound overwhelming, but it’s necessary for thriving in a highly competitive market. Especially one that’s impacted by unforeseen natural issues that can affect business quality, inventory, and supply chain. You need a business partner who provides superior communication and brings a team to learn from, trust, and grow with. At Endsight, you know the team serves you to make your business successful. 

Ready to take control? 

Take advantage of the cloud now and make your winery efficient, sustainable, and successful. From crop management to data analysis for customer promotions – technology is there to help you succeed.
Use AI, ML, and IoT devices to help you get more out of your time and business. Get more done with less so your resources can focus on more important details down to the last grape.
