Virtual Wine Lockers: The Social Media Software for Wine Lovers
In a world of sharing your interests and life experiences on social media, introducing a social sharing form for wine lovers is the next big thing for the hospitality industry. Restaurants gain most of their notoriety and publicity on social media. From guests snapping pictures of their delicious dishes to include on their stories (“phone eats first”) to showing off the restaurant’s interior aesthetic, including another addition to that exposure will be a bonus. So here’s the concept: virtual wine lockers.
Wine connoisseurs everywhere will be impressed and blown away by this new creative concept of wine lockers. Making wine lockers interactive creates an added experiential component that guests will find as a grand gesture towards their passion. Virtual wine lockers make a difference for the guest experience and exposure for your restaurant. So when deciding on wine lockers, consider these benefits of taking lockers digital:
It’s Time For Wine Social Sharing
Uptown Network’s lockers incorporate wine software that meets social media on an iPad wine menu. Members of a virtual wine locker program have the opportunity to follow favorite lockers and receive activity notifications. They can share comments with fellow locker holders and send gifts to friends and family, encouraging them to visit your restaurant. This will not only build a wine community, but create engagement for an extra experiential component to your dining space. The experience of using a virtual wine locker will be heightened by the ability of guests being able to utilize social sharing, while also bringing more recognition to the restaurant.
Keeping Lockers Safe and Secured on iPad Menus
iPad wine lists, that include virtual wine lockers, will bring a whole new level of luxury to your country club, restaurant, or resort. Scrolling through wines will be easy and fun, plus guests can easily decide which wine they want to add to their locker with over 100,000 tasting notes at their fingertips. It’s educational not only for guests, but also for staff. The menus are easily managed and the software offers a cost-effective way to integrate wine lockers into your iPad wine list programs. Bonus: Virtual wine lockers will get guests even more excited to join your restaurant for dinner and they will always be looking forward to going back so they can share their exquisite wine experiences.
Guests will also feel safe to know that their virtual wine lockers are private, secure, and tested. Uptown Network’s code base and API (application programming interface) receive ongoing rigorous security testing to ensure software industry standards are met for their wine lockers at restaurants. Guests won’t have to worry who is getting access to their personal lockers. We want guests’ information private as they enjoy a social experience driven by a shared love of wine.
Sharing passions and interests are important in our society. Allow guests to experience these new ways of sharing their love for wine.
