Accelerate Conference

Wine and PLM at Accelerate 2015

By     JULY 10, 2015

In the 7 weeks left leading up to Accelerate 2015, our 2nd annual PLM event, I will be introducing a few of the classes that will be available to attendees, along with the customers who will be leading them. If you haven't yet registered for your free pass, I encourage you to do so here.

The first class I would like to highlight involves two of my favorite things: Wine and PLM. This class will be led by KJ Carlson from Club W, a very cool company, and the world's only personalized wine club that delivers exceptional wines right to your door (or the door of your mom, friend, or whomever you'd like).

How can a start-up winery go from producing zero wines a year to over 100, while adding zero headcount and keeping it brain damage free? By not over thinking the process and giving the team a simple, single source of the truth for all of their work. Implementing PLM 360 very early into their process, Club W laid the foundation for their product team to work error free in a collaborative environment, avoiding the normal pain of excel and email-based work. Hear Club W's story of going from 10 employees in the company and needing to ramp up to 100,000 cases of wine and over 100+ SKUs, followed by a discussion with a focus on the business vs. designing processes for process sake.
