The international fine wine sector is becoming increasingly lucrative and valuable for collectors and investors. With private collectors needing to independently store, manage and inventory their wines, Mark Bevan saw a business opportunity and set up NEXUS Wine Collections in 2005 to provide large private collectors with secure, accurate cellarage for their burgeoning inventories, whether for drinking or investment.
Since then NEXUS has grown to become the largest independent inventory management service in the UK, providing collectors of all sizes with the tools and support to manage their collections and buy or sell with whomever they choose.
NEXUS planned to re-develop its existing website to create a bespoke system with a customer-friendly front-end and a functionally-rich back-end.
NEXUS was looking for a development partner that would help them move to a new data-driven environment and work with them to continue to develop the offering that could manage the whole process.
CGI rebuilt a new system for NEXUS to enable online wine inventory and tracking, administration processes, and a comprehensive search function to allow customers to log in and search. NEXUS can now run the business out of the new website.
The project referenced in this case study was delivered by Xibis, part of SCISYS, which CGI acquired in December 2019
