Wine Lists Go Digital

Link to RMGT article published August 2011

This is my second column for RMGT (Restaurant Management) Magazine. It was difficult to compress all the information into 750 words after I interviewed roughly a dozen companies. My goal was to write a go-to column about software available for digital wine lists, not to market one company over another. Since its development, companies providing digital access have been born (practically) over-night leaving the restaurant owner weeding through promotional jargon to discover which system is best for them. When it comes down to it, it depends on the amount of information you want to provide and if you use an iPad- versus a tablet-compatible program. The pricing varies based on the level of customization, troubleshooting and set-up assistance provided.

I look forward to hearing your feedback.
