QUINI PRESS RELEASE
VANCOUVER, BC – March 24, 2021 – Quini® (www.quiniwine.com) today announced the release of an upgrade to the company’s QUINI DATA™ wine consumer sensory data and analytics platform for wine producers. The system leverages Quini’s proprietary consumer wine tasting and rating data and algorithm to calculate and publish NPS® (Net Promoter Score) results.
Instant view of NPS within the QUINI DATA analytics interface is designed to help wine marketers to instantly identify and prioritize optimal target audiences and geographic markets for a wine product, based on consumer loyalty indications captured using Quini.
The underlying recommendation engine also automatically suggests ideal geographic and demographic targets for a particular wine, based on a combination of consumer loyalty indicators, drinker age categories and taster location, down to a city level.
“Integrating NPS into QUINI DATA augments our client ability to support decisions, better direct resources and reduce risk,” said Roger Noujeim, Quini’s CEO. “We are seeing more wine producers and their wine making teams looking to use consumer sensory data more upstream in their process to uncover best paths and pre-empt issues.”
The new algorithm simultaneously identifies detractors. Audiences that are more likely to negatively impact the brand and business.
Alerting wineries early to potential risk gives the executive suite an opportunity to re-examine decisions and steer away from unnecessary, costly pitfalls.
“The growing interest in consumer sensory data to support decisions early in a wine product’s journey is a significant leap for an industry known as being market driving rather than market driven,” added Noujeim.
“Averting a commercial miss is a critical goal every winery must pro-actively pursue. It can mean saving tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential loss for a winery. Even up to a million dollars or more for the largest wine producers,” concluded Noujeim.
A side by side competitive benchmark of NPS scores can also be used by marketing teams to enhance product sheets with real, third party verified consumer data to better support sales teams and objectives on the road.
Access to NPS is now open to all QUINI DATA Gold annual subscribers, at no added charge.
QUINI DATA encompasses multiple complimentary analytics dashboard clusters to support the various business functions in a winery. This includes marketing, business intelligence, wine making and innovation teams, consumer insight managers, direct to consumer (DTC) and wine club groups.
Net Promoter or Net Promoter Score (NPS) is the percentage of customers rating their likelihood to recommend a company, a product, or a service to a friend or colleague as 9 or 10 (“Promoters”) minus the percentage rating this at 6 or below (“Detractors”) on a scale from 0 to 10. Respondents who provide a score of 7 or 8 are referred to as “Passives” and do indeed enter into the overall percentage calculation. NPS is a management tool used as a measure of customer loyalty and has been shown to correlate with revenue growth relative to competitors. NPS has been widely adopted by Fortune 500 companies and other organizations.
