Two companies which worked together on a cloud-based software platform solution have won in the packaging category of the 2017 Wine Industry Impact Awards.

Altvin and Wines by Geoff Hardy were co-nominated to demonstrate the impact of a solution for specifying and managing bottling and packaging with real-time supply chain collaboration.

Wines by Geoff Hardy uses Altvin, a winery packaging and inventory program that brings all the elements of its packaging process together into one location on the cloud.

Here, everyone inside the business can view, interact and communicate the product packaging requirements and history in order to manage wine product SKUs and product lifecycle.

The companies beat out Orora Fibre Packaging, which was a finalist for its digital imagery on printing and packaging processes.

The annual awards, presented by Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA), showcase excellence in improving the competitiveness and capability of the nation’s grape and wine industry while developing “exciting new consumer experiences”.
