"Some retailers of our products are better than others," says Andre Mitchell, director of sales and marketing for the winery.The winery needed a system that would tie together the different data formats of its wholesalers in a way that could then be analyzed at headquarters.

More Bang for the Buck
The company decided to go with Interrelate Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn., an ASP running the E.piphany application.The decision to use an ASP was based on an analysis of the resources required to run the system on its own.
...
An ASP would give us more bang for the buck," says Mitchell.
In an ASP partner, Franciscan was looking for technical competency, forwarding-thinking leadership, strong hardware setup, and good technical support."We have two guys in our IT department so we needed a partner with a high level of technical competency," Mitchell says.
The winery evaluated five ASPs and selected Interrelate.The reasons included the company's central location in the U.S., which helped from a time-zone standpoint.
Plus, "They were the most aggressive in trying to learn about our business.They seemed to understand our requirements well.Every ASP has good technical skills," he says.
...
"IT allows us to see the reasons for success in 10 states, which we may be able to apply to other states," Mitchell says.
Whereas in the past the sales force spent three to five days a month formatting data in a way that they could analyze, they now spend an hour downloading reports or drilling through data to find trends and nuances."And now we spend three days a month analyzing the data," Mitchell says."Our sales force is probably more informed about the business than they have ever been."
For instance, the sales force can see holes in the distribution system, where sales deviate from the industry or the competition, and what the causes are.Plus, the system is faster, more accurate, and more reliable than in the past.And now the IT department has more time to dedicate to other projects."So now we are expanding what we are doing with our B2B and B2C sites," according to Mitchell.
Another new effort is to build membership in a wine club, which can be used to provide information to restaurants."In the wine business, this is a big deal," Mitchell says.Over time, more financial and product availability data will be made available on the company's Web site, to enable the sales force to manage their business more effectively from the field.
In terms of lessons learned, Mitchell says he underestimated the amount of memory and computer horsepower needed to successfully host the system."Our experience with Interrelate has been very good.We dealt with a couple of companies before them and we had a lot of skepticism.But in the last six to nine months, we have become ASP believers."
On the Horizon
The future will place emphasis on the science side of marketing, which should lead to a more "fact-based" approach on the artistic side of marketing.
