, an innovative new optimization platform specifically built for beverage professionals!
We’re thrilled to announce that JVS is now a proud partner with SevenFifty in California! SevenFifty is an online portfolio system launched in New York City in 2011 to great acclaim from some of the city’s finest restaurants and stores. Connecting distributors like JVS– who carry boutique brands and hard-to-find vintages– directly with wholesale buyers, SevenFifty has revolutionized our industry and will make buying truly small-batch wine and spirits easier (and more fruitful!) than ever.
SevenFifty was built by two industry veterans, Aaron Sherman and Gianfranco Verga, and an awesome developer, Steve Pike, with the buyer and the small distributor/importer in mind. Buyers can create a profile free of charge
(through liquor license info), view participating distributors’ portfolios in their entirety, create wish lists, and request to set up a tasting with their wine or spirits rep. In short, it takes the guessing game out of liquor buying and puts more power into the hands of both the buyer and the wholesaler.
Reps now have the ability to create custom digital (or print, but we’re feeling green) presentation materials, track tasting/sampling history and buyer reactions, and reference detailed product facts and figures – all in one place! Being a liquor rep is like being a freelance writer: you make your own schedule, but time is money and if you don’t manage it wisely, well, it’s a slippery slope. SevenFifty is here to save the precious minutes of our busy days!
Here’s to modernity in the beverage industry and new friends abound!
