Amplifi, a leading strategy and information management consultancy headquartered in Dallas, Texas, today announced its Salsify engagement with Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits — a leading importer and marketer of award-winning wines and spirits from around the world, including Josh Cellars, [ yellow tail ], Redemption Whiskey and Gray Whale Gin.
As part of the ongoing project, Amplifi is guiding the implementation of the Salsify‘s Product Experience Management (ProductXM) platform helping the wine and spirits importer and distributor establish a central data repository, transform its processes for managing and syndicating product content, and assisting with downstream operational efforts around Salsify solution support.
“Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits has ambitious growth aspirations and needed greater agility to support their vision,” said Alison Tran, Area Vice President at Amplifi. “We are extremely proud of how our teams have collaborated to define the people, processes, and technology required to help Deutsch Family compete in an ever-evolving market.”
The alcoholic beverages industry is predicted to experience a six-fold increase in e-commerce by 2024, as noted by a recent Amplifi infographic. This rapid growth makes modernization an urgent need for many brands and distributors, like Deutsch Family.
“Previously, we handled our data manually, and without an automated process for syndication, it was often challenging to update our content across our channel partners,” explained Melanie Samper, Director of IT, Marketing & Business Intelligence for Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits. ” Amplifi’s expertise and support have proven invaluable as we work to establish a data warehouse and streamline syndication.”
Amplifi is delivering the engagement through its Salsify Center of Excellence (CoE): a dedicated practice providing strategy, implementation, and optimization services for the market-leading Salsify platform. The Salsify CoE helps companies realize a greater return on solution investment (ROI), including expertise in leveraging the latest capabilities — like Open Catalogue, which Deutsch Family Wines also plans to implement. Open Catalogue is a free, open, and standardized product catalog that makes content collaboration easier, faster, and more accurate for the entire ecommerce industry.
“Successful activation is just the beginning. We know that a company’s data journey is a process, not an event. It usually includes filling gaps with ongoing advisory and consultancy roles that are often difficult to source,” added Tran. “We are proud to work with Deutsch Family as a long-term partner that can support them at every step.”
