Missing Link Networks, Inc. Announces First Compliance and Shipping Gateway for Winery Direct Purchases.

CALISTOGA, Calif. -- Missing Link Networks, Inc., the wine industry eBusiness and eCommerce specialists, today announced the release of the eCellar Compliance and Shipping Gateway, the first innovative service designed to offer wineries an open choice for online real-time compliance and shipping services.

The Compliance and Shipping Gateway offers wineries direct access to compliance and available fulfillment services using Six88's ShipCompliant and New Vine's FronTier web services.

"Continuing our 12-year trend of innovation within the wine industry, we have completed a nine-month long build of an important eCellar component for our winery clients. Our new Compliance & Shipping Gateway allows them to freely choose who they prefer for compliance and shipping services, without a change in how they use eCellar," says Paul Thienes, founder and CEO of Missing Link Networks, Inc.

Each winery that uses eCellar has all of their customers & orders, across all sales channels, located in their own single database allowing them to update orders and resubmit them within minutes. Wineries can access all of eCellar's web-based services, including Point of Sale, on the web at anytime from anywhere through an Internet connection.

"We are pleased that our two great partners - Missing Link Networks and ShipCompliant - are now integrated and can provide us with efficient solutions to best serve our customers and to help ensure that our direct shipments are always compliant." Sheila Franks - Customer Relations Manager, Cain Vineyard & Winery


The Dashboard component of the Compliance & Shipping Gateway gives wineries a centralized overview of orders' compliance and shipping failures, eliminating the need to manually check ShipCompliant's system for compliance issues or New Vine's web service for order management updates and compliance issues.

"New Vine's compliance and ship-tracking component in eCellar is brilliant! The ease and efficiency is not only helpful to the office, but allows all of our staff the ability to provide exceptional customer service to our customers in a timely and efficient manner. This is one of the best features of our eCellar software!" Leah Smith - Customer Relations Director, Spring Mountain Vineyard

Originally released in 1999, the innovative eCellar suite of comprehensive customer inventory, sales, compliance and fulfillment tracking software is the proven web-based sales and marketing management platform developed for the specialized needs of the wine industry. Every winery client has their own eCellar database system, which houses all customers and related orders across all channels in a single database available on the Internet at all times.
