Napa based Retail Realm holds Winery Summit

Describing the Microsoft Road Map for Retail, Duncan Taylor - Microsoft's Global Retail Industry Director - described how the transformation in consumer purchasing habits and influences had led Microsoft down the path of developing new, robust and multifaceted management systems for the retail space and point of sale that respond to an evolving multi-channel culture.
In an era where it is commonplace to access an array of media (internet and social media in addition to the more traditional broadcast and print) for research purposes before making the important decision to buy; where methods used to finalize purchases include a plethora of mobile devices in addition to the more traditional visit to brick and mortar stores/locations; retailers must rise to the challenge. Consumers now expect to access goods at times and locations of their choosing, and the ability to accurately forecast demand, maximize the smart use of stock to cover all the available sales channels is paramount to a) remaining competitive b) fulfilling the demands being made by consumers and, ultimately, c) a successful retail business. The resulting "Retail Realm Essentials® powered by Microsoft Dynamics" (based on the robust Microsoft Dynamics AX platform) makes this all possible and is scaleable to grow with a business ... It is also well suited to the requirements of winery groups. With many wineries in the Napa area currently using Microsoft Dynamics RMS (Retail Management System), Taylor emphasized that Microsoft will ensure that existing RMS users have a solid and easy transition path to this immensely more flexible, modern and scalable retail centric solution.
