Upper Saddle River, NJ — December 29, 2008 — eSommelier, manufacturer of the world’s first touch screen Wine Management System, announces a major step forward in the company’s development thanks to a significant contribution by a prominent investor and product supporter.
“Even in challenging economic times, the wine industry, and our business model in particular, continues to provide stability and breed confidence amongst collectors. This generous investment will be extremely beneficial in the research and development of eSommelier’s next phase of product, marketing and service programs,” said eSommelier partner Joe Hageman. “With the help of this investment, we will also look forward to further growing our presence in North America and internationally.”
eSommelier will utilize the investment funds to grow various marketing initiatives, expand its current product and service offerings, and increase sales. In addition to the redesign and recent launch of eSommlier.net, now featuring an online store, eSommelier will significantly increase the company’s advertising, marketing, and public relations efforts.
