Paulo Prior, winemaker at Sogrape, agrees: “We now have real-time insight into what’s going on at every stage of the process,” he explains. “The combination of modern, efficient systems working in harmony with traditional production techniques is a good recipe to ensure our wines continue to delight customers.”
WICO is a significant milestone for Sogrape as it begins its ambitious digital transformation program. “Previously, we’d always done waterfall development, but working on OutSystems has allowed us to use an agile methodology for the first time to accelerate development,” says António Pereira, IT manager at Sogrape. “OutSystems has also given us the ability to do things we couldn’t have done before. For example, we plan to create a mobile app for consumers that tells them more about what's in the bottle, such as grape variety, origin, harvest date, and much more."
With OutSystems, Sogrape has found a way to stay at the forefront of global wine production, while balancing tradition and innovation. “By building WICO on OutSystems, we rapidly created a solution for many of our most pressing operational challenges,” says Carlos. “Now, our teams can work more efficiently, plan more effectively, and focus their efforts on delivering the next generation of world-class wines.”
