WIV to Offer Personalized Sales Experience Infused with Pepperi-Spiced Overtones

New York, New York (October 28, 2015) – Pepperi, the mobile sales suite for brands and wholesalers, today announced WIV Wein International AG has adopted the Pepperi mobile sales suite for the world’s leading wine distribution company’s sales force of more than 600 sales reps.

The company’s reps visit clients’ homes, attend events, and organize home wine tastings to sell local wines from its own Pieroth wine estate, as well as other prestigious wines imported from around the world.

“Switching from a tedious paper-based order taking system to Pepperi’s order management software  has brought us incredible new sales efficiencies,” explained Steffen Hauger, Director of CRM for WIV Wein International AG. “Previously, a customer ordering a wine would have to wait up to ten days for their wine to be delivered, with the majority of this time spent in order processing. Now, our reps can showcase our wines through Pepperi’s catalog display on their tablet device, place orders on the spot, and ensure immediate back-end processing via real-time integration to our SAP ERP system.”

Pepperi customized its sales suite in response to WIV’s B2C requirements, including building consumer-centric ordering workflows, visual allocation of reps to clients based on geo-location, and scaling the solution to meet the big data demands of a B2C commerce solution. Pepperi also uploaded order histories for all of WIV’s clients to allow sales reps to personalize their interactions and suit each client’s unique tastes.

To support WIV’s deployment to the mobile devices of over 600 field sales reps, Pepperi added integration with Mobile Device Management provider Citrix. With Citrix, WIV can control sales reps’ mobile devices remotely to provide the Pepperi app and product updates, and add or remove company personnel as needed.

“Partnering with a wonderful company like WIV has helped us reach the next stage of our mobile-first omni-channel sales strategy – the B2C sales space,” noted Ofer Yourvexel, CEO of Pepperi. “Our work with WIV marks an expansion of our mobile sales suite, offering our customers a consistent experience across sales channels, now spanning B2B and B2C.”
