Virgin Wines toasts a successful deployment of Dream

Virgin Wines, the Online Drinks Retailer of the Year, is using the Dream financial management system from Hexagon Software. It integrates with Virgin Wines’ web-based sales order processing platform and replaces a legacy system that no longer provided sufficient flexibility to meet the company’s ongoing strategy for growth.

According to Amanda Cherry, Financial Controller at Virgin Wines: “With previous experience of the Dream system, we saw it as a tried and tested solution that was both familiar and intuitive to use.”

With a powerful SQL Server database, Dream easily handles the high volume of website transactions received by Virgin Wines each day. In fact, the company has sold more than 80 million bottles since the company was founded in 2000. Tens of thousands of rows of data come into the Dream platform each day, and every sale is efficiently and automatically reflected giving Virgin Wines an instant view of the business at any time. It also enables Virgin Wines to quickly and easily reconcile the difference between sales orders and what comes back from the various payment providers and enables the identification of any areas that need further investigation.

“The team at Hexagon Software has been very supportive of everything we have tried to achieve,” continued Amanda. “In particular, we valued their support during a recent upgrade of our sales systems when their integration expertise was crucial in ensuring that there was no disruption to the Virgin Wines business.”

Hexagon Cloud is a new hosted platform for financial and property management solutions

Hexagon Software has announced the launch of Hexagon Cloud, a new hosted platform that extends access to its market-leading property management and financial accounting software. Hexagon Cloud will enable users to review or update information from core ‘back-office’ systems, such as approving invoices, entering account transactions or viewing property information from any internet-enabled location on any device.

“Hexagon Cloud will enable organisations to achieve administrative efficiencies and increase productivity whilst significantly reducing the total cost of ownership,” commented Hexagon Software. “Devolving Dream functionality to a hosted application will allow more users to access the system from any location using any internet-enabled mobile device to enhance decision-making, streamline accounting processes and help organisations to be more agile and responsive.”

Hexagon Cloud is a native cloud application that uses a microservice-based architecture to allow updates and new features to be seamlessly introduced to all customers as soon as they are released. It runs on a clustered container infrastructure providing elastic scalability and resilience enabling new customer environments to be created in minutes. OAuth authentication provides secure access to the application using existing Office365 or other social media credentials.

“With no upfront expenditure and low monthly costs per user, Hexagon Cloud delivers greater, more cost-effective access to business intelligence and workflows to strengthen organisational performance whilst eliminating the technicalities surrounding operating system, device or browser compatibility. Hexagon Cloud will also provide a platform for the next generation of LandMark, our market-leading property management software solution, and differentiates us from competitors with older, monolithic applications that require major upgrade projects to take advantage of new functionality,” added Hexagon.
