Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery and AccuPOS Point of Sale: AccuPOS is thrilled to announce May’s featured customer of the month, Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery, an iconic vintner located north of Charlottesville, Virginia, and a winner of the Top Five Tasting Rooms in Virginia.

Before Prince Michel purchased AccuPOS, they began their business by integrating with Quickbooks. They then needed an affordable yet intuitive solution for their point of sale.

“When we were looking for a solution in late 2007, one of our options was a wholesale trade out – including the replacement of QuickBooks – that could have cost us up to $100,000.  That just made no sense.  By waiting a few years for QuickBooks to further evolve, we’ve eliminated non-productive back office tasks quite affordably.  Our payback was less than a year, so the wait for our new AccuPOS-QuickBooks solution was well worth it.” – Kristin Holzman, Owner, Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery

“We already knew QuickBooks could handle our manufacturing requirements.  Now, with the Advanced Inventory module new to 2012, QuickBooks had the potential to eliminate inventory reconciliations, even across our multiple locations.  The question was whether we could find an affordable point-of-sale that could leverage these QuickBooks capabilities, yet do so without flooding our general ledger with thousands of point-of-sale transactions each month.” – Larry Paxton, Principal, AdvantageER “Prince Michel Winery contacted me in 2012 with a specific set of operational needs and pain points.  The winery was already using QuickBooks but had invested in mismatched third party add-ons that were withholding critical data from accounting and not ‘bringing the entire solution together’.

Having experienced Point of Sale missteps in the past, the Prince Michel team was cautious and extremely thorough in their evaluation of AccuPOS and its direct, transaction level QuickBooks integration before they would commit.

“It is gratifying when AccuPOS is put through such vigorous pre-testing and the customer still pulls the trigger.  We collectively knew this would bring significant return on investment to Prince Michel and indeed it has.  They are a valued client.” – Joe Pergola, Vice President of Sales, AccuPOS
