Glen Ellen, CA, October 19, 2005 – eSkye Solutions® [www.eskyesolutions.com], the leading provider of software and services for over 200 of the world`s leading wineries, brands owners, distributors and retailers, announced today, the addition of four new winery sales of its Blend Production Software® in both the Finger Lakes and Lake Erie regions of New York. Dr. Frank’s Vinifera Wine Cellars, Glenora Wine Cellars, Merritt Estate Winery and Seneca Shore Wine Cellars all purchased the Software and successfully went through their first harvest.
David DeMarco of Seneca Shore Winery said, "The first time I ran my 702 reports using Blend Production software from eSkye Software, I felt a certain confidence. Knowing that the data was at my fingertips provided peace of mind from both a compliance and a strategic business perspective. Now my costs are well understood, leading to more informed pricing and margin decisions. Simple reports ensure we re-order on time, maximizing our supply chain. The system provides a foundation for building a learning organization at Seneca Shore Winery. By tracking grapes and blends throughout production to bottling, we`ll be able to make better winemaking decisions next season."
