SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2016) - VinCompass Corp. announced the release of VinCompass wine app version 2.2, featuring improved discovery of wines in more than 10,000 restaurants via VinCompass recommendation engine. It is available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
"There is only one real pain point in the consumer experience, and it is often when a consumer is in a white table cloth restaurant and staring at wines they don't understand. The only app, though through an invite-only, closed network, trying to fix that goal is VinCompass," said Paul Mabray, Chief Strategy Officer of VinTank, now a W2O Group company.
VinCompass' data factory has over 1 million wines cataloged and over 10,000 restaurants' wine list stored. With the release of version 2.2, VinCompass enhanced its enterprise-grade wine ecommerce engine to improve the accuracy of results delivered. VinCompass' unique patent pending data engine quickly calculates and works through the possible pairing algorithms in order to recommend a wine, thus removing consumer stress and reducing the "fear of the wine list" (FoWL™) for 92% of the people surveyed in a simple and engaging way. For the other 8% of consumers who do not suffer from FoWL™, you might benefit from the recommendation results delivered in seconds on a large wine list that can exceed more than a thousand wines.
Users simply logs into the app when they arrive at a restaurant and in less than four steps, VinCompass will recommend a wine to suit their taste preferences and budget. Additionally, the VinCompass app creates a unique VinPrint™ that will remember a user's taste preference and feed VinCompass' self-learning data engine, so it can make better future recommendations. "It's like having a virtual personal sommelier in your pocket," said Peter Lachapelle, Founder and CEO of VinCompass.
Once downloaded from App Store or Google Play, VinCompass app is activated based on an by-invitation only model.
