CorkGuru App Helps Restaurants Manage Wine Programs
CorkGuru launched a digital wine platform that combines wine label tracking apps with inventory management and business intelligence. The result: deeper, more profitable wine programs for restaurants, more tailored selections for guests, and guidance on new experiences to seek out.
The Pittsburgh-based company is already established with several top restaurants, including the award-winning Bistecca Steakhouse & Wine Bar at the Meadows Racetrack in Pittsburgh and chef Matt Harris’ Tupelo in Park City, Utah. The platform now includes a mobile app for guests.
The app replaces a paper wine list with a smart wine lists that are accessible via a tableside tablet and feature dynamic wine descriptions and label images.
CorkGuru offers restaurants a web-based portal for real-time inventory management of their wine cellar and wine list data and business intelligence through a partnership with Upserve’s Breadcrumb POS.
According to a recent Boston Consulting Group survey, more than one-third of restaurant customers rank digital sources as the most influential for discovering restaurant information, and nearly 60 percent have downloaded one or more restaurant apps. CorkGuru helps restaurants cater to these more digitally-empowered customers through its mobile app that allows customers to locate their favorite wine nearby, explore new varietals, receive special wine promotions, news and invitations from favorite restaurants.
