Innovative wineries adopt web software to help manage vintage 2008

JX2 Technology, today announced the installation of its dynamic web based solution, VINx2, into two wineries considered by the wine industry to be at the forefront of technical innovation: Josef Chromy Wines of Tasmania and The Vintage Wineworx of Western Australia. Both adopted VINx2 ahead of vintage 2008 - now successfully underway.


VINx2 was installed at Josef Chromy Wines ahead of its official opening in December. Tasmanian Premier Paul Lennon attended the event and has been quoted as saying "Mr Chromy's latest investment provided a home for some of the best wine-making equipment available and was a significant investment in the future of the industry."

Managed with the help of VINx2, the Tasmanian harvest is reaping yields up 10 to 30% more than expected. "Our first vintage in a new winery coupled with higher than expected yields has kept us very busy. The team at JX2 have provided outstanding service on the phone, via email and even onsite whenever we needed them. They're quick on their feet with fast turnaround times" said Jeremy Dineen, Winemaker and Manager.

In early December, VINx2 was installed at the award winning contract winery, The Vintage Wineworx of Western Australia. Headed by Dr. Diane Miller, the winery underwent a $1 million expansion in 2007 and was officially re-opened by influential wine critic James Halliday. Dr Miller's impressions of VINx2 are "Modern and very user-friendly interface with much more detail than our previous winery software program. Any suggestions we have made for amendments and add-ins have been met with enthusiasm and prompt updates performed by the VINx2 team. The support has been excellent..."

VINx2 is a web based information system built on top of open source technology. It is packaged as an online managed service with all updates, hardware maintenance and backups taken care of.  Its adoption by wineries in rural areas demonstrates that the shift away from traditional in-house information systems to web based technology is not confined to metropolitan businesses alone.

“With more accessible bandwidth, including newer wireless technologies, our clients in regional and remote areas are able to benefit from increased levels of service afforded with our Internet deployment model. It becomes a more cost effective option for them to look at VINx2 instead of investing heavily in their own hardware and IT staff for traditional applications.” said Zane Francis, JX2’s Systems Architect.

According to JX2, VINx2 is a cutting edge winery software solution designed to streamline the flow of information within a winery business. It will save time, help in decision making and improve winery work-flow. It centralises the role of a winemaker providing a highly visual and accurate picture of the current state of a winery. The JX2 team has over 26 years combined experience developing and delivering complex software solutions for e-health, radiology and the wine industry.
