REDWOOD CITY, California — April 04, 2017 — Replicon, the leading provider of workforce, project and time management solutions, is delighted to welcome Distinguished Vineyards & Wine Partners as a new customer. Formed in 2008, Distinguished Vineyards & Wine Partners (DVWP) represents a unique collection of traditional and contemporary wine brands from some of the world’s most coveted wine regions.
DVWP’s portfolio includes the highly acclaimed Argyle Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and MacRostie Winery in Sonoma, California. DVWP’s staff make up several roles across seven locations, including vineyard workers, winemaking & production workers, tasting room staff and a mobile sales force.
Replicon joins DVWP’s modernized technology solutions to help transform the manual processes used by their employee-facing operations into streamlined and automated ones.
By automating their time and attendance processes with Replicon, DVWP will be able to better manage employee availability, and report on productivity of the various jobs being done across all of their vineyards. DVWP staff will use Replicon’s patented CloudClock to streamline time capture across the dispersed workforce. With the ability to both automate employee clock in/out, and tag this to specific jobs at the different blocks and vineyards, DVWP aims to reduce administrative overheads, improve the accuracy of time/cost allocation of these jobs, manage overtime, and improve scheduling.
“Replicon will be our front-end, employee-facing system to support our time and attendance processes. We believe that Replicon’s ability to support our varied employee types — including mobile workers — will modernize and streamline the processes of time capture, review and payroll processing further,” says Ken Cannon, Commercial Operations Manager at DVWP.
“We’re excited to work with Distinguished Vineyards & Wine Partners, and hope to be an enabler of their success,” says Raj Narayanaswamy, Replicon co-founder, and co-CEO. “Our advanced configurability and easy-to-use solutions have allowed even our most technologically forward customers successfully bring that level of innovation to their end-users for true and widespread adoption.”
