Casella Wines Selects StayinFront EdgeCG to Optimise Sales and Distribution Network

                StayinFront, Inc., a leading global provider of customer relationship management systems and mobile sales force effectiveness tools, today announces Casella Wines, Australia's largest family-owned wine producer and maker of the renowned [yellow tail] label, has selected StayinFront’s on-demand Consumer Goods  CRM solution, StayinFront EdgeCG™,  to optimise the sales and marketing operations within its extensive retail and wholesale network.  

            Key to Casella Wines’ decision was the rapid deployment capability of the on-demand solution with minimal disruption to the sales team.  Easy to adopt and use, benefits from the integrated StayinFront suite will be enhanced by concurrently moving its team from handheld devices to the rich user interface of  Windows 7 tablet devices.

StayinFront’s flexible Analytics reporting will assist Casella Wines in aligning its business strategy to performance requirements and tracking the results achieved.  In addition, Casella Wines will be able to facilitate more effective management of its trade promotions leading to deeper levels of business insight and control.

David Alpen, Casella Wines Chief Financial Officer, said: “StayinFront offers a system with effective information recording and analysis framework. This will enable our sales force to develop better strategies to achieve heightened performance.”

            The StayinFront EdgeCG suite has been developed to ensure the efficient capture of order information and seamless two-way transfer of customer data and delivery communications between Casella Wines and its distributors.          

            Kerrie-Anne Turner, StayinFront’s APAC Vice President and Managing Director Australia, said: “Casella Wines is one of the most progressive companies in Australia’s beverage sector.  With its newly optimised sales operation it will have the edge in this extremely competitive marketplace.
